What Are You Reading This December?

The holidays are always such a crazy time of the year: shopping for gifts, baking holiday treats, decorating the Christmas tree, etc. I feel as though I never have enough time to read and blog as much as I’d like. Instead, I run around like a chicken without its head! This year marks the first time I’ve ever been able to prep while working from home. Hopefully my usual stress level will be lowered and will allow me more reading time. With that dream in mind, here’s what I’m aiming to read this month:

First up is finishing Wedding Cake for Breakfast.  I’ve been reading it on and off throughout the year as I have time. The book, written by several authors, is comprised of short essays on the first year of marriage. I’ve really enjoyed the stories I’ve completed so far and am anxious to finally finish the book.

The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway was pitched to me as a book fans of Outlander would love. If you’ve been following the blog this year you know I’ve become obsessed with the Outlander series (reviews of book one, two, and three.) Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I’m PUMPED to start this.

And finally, Undressing Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos. Doornebos wrote Definitely Not Mr. Darcya book I really enjoyed last year. I’m a firm believer that you can never have too much Darcy, so I’m sure you can guess what my feelings are already about this book. 🙂

So folks, over to you. What are your plans for the holidays? What are you reading this December?

Happy holidays, and as always happy reading!

  1. Your December books look like a lot of fun!

    I’m in the middle of reading My Mother’s Funeral, a memoir about a Colombian woman’s life growing up with her brother’s and sisters under difficult conditions. It’s pretty good so far 🙂

    I’ll be posting my review on Book Lust if anyone is interested!

  2. I feel the same way! And this year I feel even more stressed. It doesn’t feel like Christmas at all. I need to let some things go; I cannot do it all.

    On a happier note, I read Undressing Mr. Darcy and LOVED it! (I really wish I could see his “striptease” show! ;D ) You’re absolutely right, you cannot have too much Darcy! Can’t wait to read your thoughts!

  3. I’ve almost finished The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan, and the other books I plan to read this month are Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the first Game of Thrones book.

  4. I’m not a huge reader… But I’m a currently busy with “Conversations with my sons and daughters” by Mamphela Ramphele. Then I want to continue with “Bantu in my Bathroom” by Eusebius McKaiser”… And also a few parts of Theology books…

  5. I’ve just finished Legend by Marie Lu and I’m going to move onto Looking For Alaska by John Green and Matched by Ally Condie.

  6. I’m trying to get through a bunch of books, but I’m just not sure it’s going to happen! Why do the holidays get so crazy?!

    Those three books look great, I may have to add them to my list. You know, because it’s not long enough.

  7. Well, you know some of the books I’m hoping to finish this month (No Good Duke and Married for Christmas), but I’m also working on Miss Billings Treads the Boards by Carla Kelly (a reprint/rerelease) and maybe finishing Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. I’d also like to get a head start on some of my January reading, but we’ll see.

  8. We recently moved, so I got a new library card this weekend. It is a small branch, but they offered many new releases. They had the latest Jack Reacher book by Lee Child, “Never Go Back.” I couldn’t put it down. I finished it within 24 hours. Can’t wait to go back to my “new” library and pick up the latest Stephanie Plum.
