BOOK CLUB: Choose December’s Books
It’s about that time, or perhaps a little later than that time [soz], to announce the line up for our December Book Club.
I wanted to pop some seasonal reads in there, as well as some new releases that are getting a whole lotta love online.
Before I show you guys the options, however, I wanted to check in and see how you’re doing with our November books. Are you enjoying them so far? A few of you are choosing to read all three, which is very exciting! I’m personally really really loving The Snowman – it’s such a gripping read and my first proper venture into nordic noir. I’m impressed! I think up next I’ll read To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, to give me a break from thrills and chills, and then I’ll dive into The Hate U Give the wrap the month up. Don’t forget to show me your book club books on social media by tagging me @agirlandgrey! And I would love for you to recommend our book club to a friend – I’ve gotten so many lovely comments and emails about people getting their sisters and friends involved, which makes my heart feel so full. You guys are the best.
Anyway, wanna see the December line up?
My True Love Gave To Me
edited by Stephanie Perkins
This holiday story compilation is basically for those of us who love nothing more than curling up in front of a Hallmark movie during the festive period. With stories by Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay, David Levithan, author of Every Day, and Rainbow Rowell, author of Fangirl, this book promises to deliver all of the cute and cozy feels this December.
Let It Snow
edited by John Green
Another holiday novel, this book contains three short stories that are inextricably linked. I read this book last Christmas Eve and it made for such a memorable evening. I think you guys will love it too.
It Ends With Us
written by Colleen Hoover
I’ve already read this novel, about two years ago actually, but I just had to add it to this list. It is the best Colleen Hoover novel I have ever read, and it covers the ever important topic of domestic violence. You’ll find yourself questioning your state of mind if you read this one.
All The Light We Cannot See
written by Anthony Doerr
This historical fiction novel is said to be devastatingly beautiful, but heartbreaking at the same time. It’s also won a bunch of awards, so I’m really looking forward to reading this one.
written by Scot Gardner
Ohhhh my god this novel sounds incredible and terrifying. A sixteen year old must swim to shore after a juvenile detention exercise goes wrong. Did I mention there are sharks and crocodiles swarming the water? This is literally my worst nightmare in a book.
Then She Was Gone
written by Lisa Jewell
A novel about a missing daughter, a mother who refuses to give up, and the journey of finding the truth. I’ve read so many great reviews of this book.
Force of Nature
written by Jane Harper
Five women reluctantly head out for a hike in the mountains as part of a work retreat, but only four come back. I love these mystery/crime/thriller novels where someone goes missing! That probably sounds super bleak…
And Then There Were None
written by Agatha Christie
I’ve never read an Agatha Christie novel, but I’ve been told this is the place to start. Ten strangers are invited to a luxurious secluded mansion for the weekend. Sounds perfect, right? Well it is, until they start getting murdered, one by one.
Sometimes I Lie
written by Alice Feeney
This psychological thriller is about a comatose patient named Amber who has a penchant for telling lies…
The Mistletoe Murder: And Other Stories
written by P.D. James
Four festive thrillers written by the legendary P.D. James. What else is there to say?! I’ve heard this is a classic Christmas read.
Make sure to vote down below for the books you want to read in December! And let me know how you’re going with this months books too. I’d love to have a lil chat.
