BOOK CLUB: Choose December’s Books

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.

  • So many great options!

    It ends with us! Sam are you really picking a book you’ve recently read? YES YES I AM BECAUSE IT’S BRILLIANT AND EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ IT

    Also The Mistletoe Murders sounds good!

    Plus Sometimes I Lie, And Then There Were None, Force of Nature and Then She Was Gone all sound amazing and are going on my goodreads list!

    • HAHAHAHHAA it’s such a good book! I really hope it wins this month so we can all swoon over it together. Are we pals on Goodreads yet? I don’t know how to work the friends list thing – it’s such an odd website. xo
