Raise your hand if you are one of those people who can’t believe we are in the last month of 2017.
Also raise your hand if you’ve chosen to participate in blogmas this year…no? Just me? (If you’re confused the explanatory post is coming, so check back in!)
December tends to be one of my favourite book release months, so a fair few of the novels on my list are being released in the coming weeks, and yet, I am also in a festive mood so get ready for it…

The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand
Given that it is nearly Christmas time I knew I couldn’t get away with a December TBR that didn’t include at least one festive novel. Enter Cynthia Hand’s A Christmas Story retelling. Besides the cover being absolutely gorgeous, the premise of the novel is a fun take on a Christmas classic, so I hope I can finish it before the month is out.
Ever the Brave by Erin Sumerill
Last year I read Ever the Hunted, the first of the ‘Clash of Kingdoms’ duology, and boy has it been a wait and a half for the sequel. However, on December 5th that wait is finally over! I have had this book preordered so I expect to have it finished by the end of that week.
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
While the wait for Erin Sumerill’s sequel has been painful, I only read The Bear and the Nightingale in September so to say my anticipation isn’t that high isn’t that surprising. The Girl in the Tower is also being released December 5th, and while I do have this book preordered, it might be one of the books I choose to spend my monthly Audible credit on.
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
Because I didn’t read it while it was on my TBR in November it is once again going to sit on this list. Hopefully December is the month I can strike it off the TBR pile.

And that is my TBR for the month of December.
Due to it being Christmas, I kept this month short in order to be able to dive into whatever books I buy with my… I mean… Christmas money.
