December 2020 TBR + Reindeer Readathon & Mini Polarthon!

Honestly, how is it nearly December already?? 2020 is almost over (thank god) and now is the time when all of us bookish people panic and try and squeeze in as many books as possible in to the remaining weeks. I'm feeling ok with my reading at the minute though, I already hit my Goodreads goal and now I'm just trying to choose some books that'll put me in a wintery mood. I do like seasonal reading as I like feeling cozy and festive and having books that match that feeling. There a few books that I want to try and read before the year is officially up and we enter into 2021 though. 

I'm onto the final book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy aka Forever by Maggie Stiefvater which actually isn't the final book because there's a 3.5 called Sinner which I own and will be reading in January but whatever! I'm also continuing with the Winternight trilogy and I'm going to be reading the second book, The Girl in the Tower. At the time I'm writing this, I'm actually in the middle of the first book and really enjoying it so I'm excited for the rest of the series. 

My festive reads include 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Eston which just sounds so cute and romantic plus I'm going to be reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue this month which I can't wait for!! Finally, I actually forgot to include a non-fiction book for this month in my planned out TBR so I might have to squeeze one in somewhere if I can but I do already have a lot on there. My classic for the month though is going to be A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and I'm going to try and read this on Christmas Eve plus my edition has beautiful illustrations!

I'm also participating in a few readathons this months of which you can find the details down below.

Mini Polarthon  

Jade from jadeyraereads is hosting a mini round of her polar fantasy readathon in the first weekend of December and I thought it would be fun to participate. I don't read much polar fantasy but it's a genre I find myself really drawn to so I thought having a go at the smaller version would be a good idea to ease myself in. It's happening from Friday December 4th until Sunday December 6th so it's a nice short one to start off the month. I've chosen three books to see me through the weekend although I probably won't complete all of them but I chose one adult, one young adult and one middle grade so there's a mixture of what I can choose.
 
 
   

Reindeer Readathon 


I also decided to participate in the Reindeer Readathon which is hosted by Breakeven Books and this is a month long one so it lasts the whole of December. I loved the prompts for this one although I stuggled for a while on some of them, made  harder by the fact that we can't double up on prompts either! There's also ways to earn extra points as well by reading a book over 500 pages and completing an extra prompt at the end. I'm officially on Team Mistletoe so I'm excited to get started and earn my team some points! 
 

 
Dasher • A book with a one word title
 
Dancer • A companion novel or a sequel (as in a dancing partner) 

Prancer • A book with a map in it
 
Vixen • A book with a fox on the cover 
 
Comet • A book you find intimidating
 
Cupid • Read a genre that you love
 
Donner • A book with something hidden inside (under the dust jacket, chapter heads, art, etc)
 
Blitzen • A book with some sort of struggle (internal struggle, war, battle, etc)
 
Rudolph • A book where the main character doesn't fit in (outsider, misfit)


My December TBR is looking pretty manageable at the minute with 13 books on there, hopefully I'll be able to round out 2020 with a great reading month! Happy Reading!
