December TBR + New Releases

Friday, December 1, 2017

Happy December, friends! Here are my reading plans (heavy emphasis on plans) for this month! I have 2.5 weeks to get all my reading done before I leave for Japan + Hong Kong. Fingers crossed for 100% success, at least with these four books I've chosen to tackle this month 🀞

What Lies Between Us by Nayomi Munaweera
This is the December pick for Joce's book club! Like Stay With Me, I hadn't heard of What Lies Between Us before it was announced as a future read, so I'll just share an incomplete sentence from the synopsis that caught my attention: "... the confession of a woman, driven by the demons of her past to commit a single and possibly unforgivable crime."

Winterspell by Claire Legrand
I've been meaning to read Winterspell since 2014 when Rachel (from Paper Cuts) and I planned to do a buddy read, but it never happened πŸ˜… There are mixed reviews from my friends on Goodreads, so I'm walking into this one with low expectations but high hopes! It seems to be a dark take on The Nutcracker.

Nutcracked by Susan Adrian
THIS COVER πŸ˜ It already looks like the perfect read for this holiday season! Nutcracked follows a girl named Georgie who dances the part of Clara in The Nutcracker—but every time she dances with the Nutcracker doll, she enters a magical world. When this magic enters the real world, Georgie must save everyone in danger.

Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle
Let it Snow is another book I've been meaning to pick up for ages, four Decembers ago to be somewhat exact. I know I will fly through these three stories, so let's MAKE IT HAPPEN, SELF.


Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills // December 5th
Mills is an auto-read author for me (First & Then, Mills' debut novel, is one of my favorites!) but I didn't add this to my TBR because I have no idea when my library hold will be ready. I wouldn't be mad if this was my first read of 2018 though!

Three Sides of a Heart: Stories About Love Triangles edited by Natalie C. Parker // December 19th
I guess I really want my heart to break over and over again because why else would someone read a book about love triangles?

Love, Life, and the List by Kasie West // December 26th
I am reading all of West's books in publication order so I won't be getting to Love, Life, and the List for a while, but I've loved On the Fence and The Fill-In Boyfriend so far! West is really good at combining the right amount of conflict with fluff. I love fluff! As you can probably tell :)


What are you planning to read in December?

  1. I've got Winterspell on my shelf, and I've been debating about reading it this month. I'm actually just starting her upcoming release, Furyborn, which has been getting a lot of hype! Let It Snow is such a cute anthology. I read it a while ago but remember loving it, and I normally don't like anthologies! I'm also trying to go through Kasie West's books, but I've fallen behind. She's been releasing SO many lately!
