December TBR | 2020 Reading Challenge

My final TBR post of 2020 is not a typical TBR post. Instead of talking at length about what I’m going to be reading in December (because it hasn’t really changed from the past couple of months), I’m taking a bit of a different approach.

The majority of December will be dedicated to finishing the books on my Fall TBR—I have until the winter solstice on December 21st—plus whatever else happens to land on my radar (I did this back in October after watching Ashley from Bookish Realm’s October TBR video). These are the titles I have left on that TBR (*denotes rereads):

  • The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty
  • The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin
  • The Gilded King* and The Silver Queen by Josie Jaffrey
  • A Discovery of Witches* and Shadow of Night* by Deborah Harkness
  • Turning the Storm by Naomi Kritzer

I started Death in the Clouds by Agatha Christie yesterday, and I also saved The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones—both Scribd audiobooks—so I’m also planning to finish those by the end of the month.


But apart from these fiction selections, I also want to look ahead at books that should be on my radar in 2021. More specifically, the fiction being published in 2021.

I’ve been browsing book lists and have received some great recommendations on Twitter (see them here), but I also wanted to reach out here and ask if you have any recommendations for 2021 fiction releases. What should be on my radar for next year? What should I make time for?

Share your recommendations below, and/or share what you’re reading this December (feel free to link to your own TBR post!). Do you have specific titles in mind, or are you just winging it? However you choose to read in the final 31 days of 2020, I hope you do it happily.
