For the month of December I have three books that I have already started and a few that I hope to start. All my books come from the library and as of right now none are due back anytime soon so I don’t feel too much pressure to get to certain ones.
First are the books I need to finish.
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
This is my first Christie novel. I have been slowly getting through this during my down time at work. So far it is fun to try to guess who the killer is and Christie provides a plethora of suspects to keep it interesting.
The Mothers by Brit Bennett
I am listening to this in audiobooks in my car, mostly on my travels to and from work. This is the story of a young girl whose mother commits suicide, and not to long after she becomes pregnant by the preacher’s son and decided to have an abortion and follows the events after this decision.
The Batman Chronicles
Now in to the books I plan on starting this month.
The Clockwork Dagger by Beth Cato
I picked this one up on a whim while perusing the sci-fi section at the library. The cover drew me in and I really don’t know much about it other than its a steampunk novel where the heroine has healing powers and is on an airship where a murder has taken place.
The Vile Village by Lemony Snicket
The next booking my plan to get through all of the Series of Unfortunate Events. These books continue to delight and enrage me. I want to get through them to see if my thoughts that there is an underlying subplot are true.
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
This has been a book I’ve been wanting to read for a while. It takes place in a world that has been decimated by a pandemic and follows a troupe of actors as they travel around putting on plays in this world.
