Looking Ahead … December Releases

Looking Ahead Devouring Books Banner.png

This is a post that I do at the end of every month where I share the books I am looking forward to in the next month. I am always looking for books to add to my TBR so I hope to hear about what books you are looking forward to in the coming month in the comments.

Looking Ahead … December Releases

If you know me you know that I tried not to request many ARCs this month so that I can catch up on some backlist books. Regardless I have very little self control when it comes to ARCs and still wound up with a bunch of titles on my TBR.

Check out the titles that I am excited for that come out this month. Make sure to comment below if you have read any of these or want to read any of these titles so we can discuss them!

Physical ARCs

NONE! What?! That’s insane! I haven’t had NO physical ARCs for a month in ages. But this month I tried not to request many because I really want to catch up on backlist titles.

A thieving plot will always grab my attention. I love reading about scheming and thieves pulling off a heist. I have no idea what to really expect from this one and it’s a bit out of my normal comfort zone, but I hope that it grabs my attention and I really enjoy it.

Tarryn Fisher’s books are pretty popular among my friends who love thrillers. I wanted to check out her books and this one looks like it could have a very interesting plot.

I gave the first book in this series only 3 stars, but I am intrigued to see what happens next. I don’t have super high expectations for this one, but I am interested to see where the series goes. Check out my review of The Similars (book one) here!

Want to Read

I really wanted an ARC of this book, but I didn’t wind up getting one. It just sounds really unique and kind of out there!

Where the World Ends by Geraldine McCaughrean.jpg

This book sounds like Lord of the Flies to me. I love books with survival plots and would love to check this one out because it won the Carnegie Metal.

Have Read

I love Sara Shepard, she writes the perfect fluff reads that are full of drama and they’re always fun fast reads. I didn’t know that this was an adult novel, (probably because I don’t read blurbs… ) but I was actually really pleased with how this book turned out even though it wasn’t what I expected.

Good Girls Lie by JT Ellison.jpgGood Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison

I thought that this would be a fluff read, but it was actually a really great psychological thriller! This was my first J.T. Ellison read and I can’t wait to check out more of her books because this was great.


Let’s Chat!

What books are you looking forward to this month? Have you read any of the books on my list? Are any of them on you TBR? How do you balance ARCs and backlist books? Have you ever been overwhelmed by too many ARCs? Do you ever make monthly TBRS? Make sure to comment below so we can talk about upcoming books we’re excited about!

  1. I love thrillers! These all sound fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing your list. I wish you the best of luck in tackling your TBR pile. I tend to devour books during the winter months so I am always looking for something new. I recently finished an awesome psychological suspense/coming of age story by Mark Tullius called “Ain’t No Messiah” (https://www.marktullius.com/). This is a fairly dark read but the author mixes in comedy, elements of hope, and some really unique concepts to make this one of my favorite reads of 2019. The main concept of the novel is fairly relatable; Joshua is trying to find himself and to find happiness. However, Joshua has grown up in an abusive household, is the member of a cult-like church, and his father & fellow church members believe Joshua is the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is a story that definitely makes you think and keeps you hooked from start to finish. I can’t recommend it enough. Happy reading and happy holidays!

    1. Thanks for the recommendation. I read a lot all year, but there is something extra special about a good book in the winter time. You curl up next to a fire with some hot cocoa and a blanket… nothing more relaxing.
