How the heck is it already December? It feels like this entire year flew by just as fast as the last one. It doesn’t feel quite real.
Compared to the last few months (all of them, really), December’s goals are going to be pretty small. I would rather reach small goals than push myself to bigger ones and not achieve them. I’ll list the books I’d like to read here, but I want to make it clear to myself and to you, dear reader, that I don’t have to finish all of them. The first six books in the list are for the Merry & Bright Readathon on YouTube. It’s hosted by YouTubers Chandler Ainsley, Zoë Delaney, and Intentionally Bookish. Check out their videos if you want to participate too!
– In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren
– The Statistically Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
– From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout or Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
– Briar Rose by Jane Yolen
– The Sky Weaver by Kristen Ciccarelli
– King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
– The Hidden Things by Jamie Mason
– Renegades by Marissa Meyer
– Gilded by Marissa Meyer
– The Most Precious Substance on Earth by Shashi Bhat
My main goal will be to get these ten books read (or any ten books), while I’d actually like to read more than ten. I’ll choose more books at that point based on how I’m feeling at the time.
My writing goals are also very fluid. I want to work on my novel as much as I can, and I want to work on The Chemistry of Yolks. Both of these projects need to have a good number of hours put into them this month. We’ll see which one gets more time and how far I get by the end of the year.
I’ll keep up on updates at the bottoms of some posts this month instead of trying to reach a large goal by the thirty-first. For now, I think that’s all I have to say. Have a great December and enjoy whichever holiday(s) you celebrate this month!
(Also, I’m using only red and green for posts this month to stay on a Christmas-y theme. I celebrate Yule and Solstice instead of Christmas, but at least it’s on theme for the general consumer public.)
