Happy almost December! December is a good month to catch up on 2015 releases before the new year hits. December is a slower month for new book releases but there are still several that I have my eye on. There are a lot of sequels hitting this month

Twelve Books to Read in December:

  2. SQUEE! Ally Carter’s book! I guess I’ll have to break my resolution NOT to buy any new books till the new year (trying to get through my shorter TBR pile). Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!

  5. I need to catch up on the Lux series, too. I think I stopped after book 2, but I really like this series. I didn’t know that the new one was from Daemon’s POV. I think that might be fun.
