I love the month of December because I get a lot of books for Christmas and I also use some of the money and gift cards I get to buy more books!
1) By Your Side by: Kasie West
I have heard a bunch about this book and I knew I just had to get it when I had a little extra money. I would love to be locked in a library like the main character in this book!
2) Artemis by: Andy Weir
I got this book in one of my subscription boxes, and it has beautiful stained black pages! I don’t know much about this book other than the fact that it takes place in space. I read The Martian just over a year ago, and I loved it so I’m hoping that this book is somewhat similar.
3) The Dark Prophecy by: Rick Riordan
This is the second book in the Trials of Apollo series. I have yet to read the first one, but that would never stop me from buying another book.
4) Ever the Brave by: Erin Summerill
This is the second book in an epic fantasy series called Clash of Kingdoms. Again I have yet to read the first one, but am hoping to get to this series rather soon as I love a good fantasy read in the spring.
5) Foolish Hearts by: Emma Mills
I got this book in my December Owlcrate. I don’t really know too much about this book other than it has something to do with A Midsummer Night’s Dream which is one of my favorite works by Shakespeare. I’m not sure when I’ll get to this book, but you can expect a review when I do.
6) Shadow Girl by: Liana Liu
This book came in my December Bookish Box. I know this book is a thriller so I’ve been trying not to read the synopsis so I can go into the book not knowing much.
7) The Afterlife of Holly Chase by: Cynthia Hand
I bought this book right before Christmas with intentions of reading it before the holiday. With this book being a Christmas Carol retelling I figured it would be a great holiday read. But since I got so busy I guess I’ll have to wait until next year to read it.
8) Scythe by: Neil Shusterman
My brother started reading this book a bit ago and highly recommended it to me, and I knew he had a copy of the book that I could borrow. But my amazing boyfriend bought the book for me for Christmas. I can’t wait to read this book as it has such an interesting synopsis.
9) The Lord of the Rings Boxed Set by: J.R.R. Tolkien
So there’s a funny story with these books. My boyfriend and I went to Barnes & Noble and I saw him fawning over a big bind-up of all the Lord of the Rings books. Long story short I bought it for him later on for Christmas, so we both bought each other the same books for Christmas. I’ve wanted this set forever as I see it in a lot of Instagram posts of the people who I follow and the books are so cute!
10) Ash Princess by: Laura Sebastion
I go this book in a trade on Twitter, and I so happy that I was able to get it! This is one of my most anticipated reads of 2018. And the cover looks absolutely stunning!!
11) Unearthed by: Amie Kaufman & Maegen Spooner
This is another book that I got through a trade. Again, this book is one of my most anticipated books of 2018. I haven’t read the Starbound trilogy by these authors yet, but the separate works that I have read by them were amazing. Plus I love a really good sci-fi novel.
12) This Adventure Ends by: Emma Mills
This book was a total cover buy for me. I dont’ really know anything about the premise other than there is a road trip and expensive paintings involved. I think I may just go into this book not knowing much because I love reading books that way sometimes.
13) I See London, I See France by: Sarah Mlynowski
I’ve heard so many good things about this book that when I had a little extra money I just had to pick it up. I think I’m going to save this book for the summer time or when I take a road trip because I think it will be a perfect read for then.
And there you have it, all the books I got in December. I know this list is coming out really late, but it’s been a crazy few weeks, but I’m hoping that now I’ll be able to blog a bit more regularly.
