My December TBR

So if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter (come join the fun there too!) you may have seen me talk about how I realized I only read baby-related books in the month of November so I vowed to myself that I was going to reclaim my reading life in December (what little of a reading life I have!) and I’m not going to read ANY baby-related books at all. So I figure I would post what I plan to read in December…accountability and all! I have off a week around Christmas so I’m hoping to get some reading done!


I’m trying to keep it totally reasonable even though in my head I want to read like 50 billion books. Let me know if you’ve read any of these or tell me which one should be my first priority! I’m also looking to add a holiday romance to this list but haven’t decided which one! Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite!


Foolish Hearts by Emma Millss

Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

(the pre-order price for this book is a great deal if you are wanting to buy this book!!)

“A contemporary novel about a girl whose high school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream leads her to new friends—and maybe even new love.”

I really enjoyed her most recent book This Adventure Ends so I’m really excited for this one!


Reign the Earth

Reign The Earth by A.C. Gaughen

A girl realizes she has the power to control the earth on the same day she marries the king who hunted the Elementae to extinction.

This sounds soooo good! I haven’t read her first series (though I own it) so I don’t know what to expect but I know she’s a favorite of a lot of friends!


Girl With The Red Balloon
The Girl With The Red Balloon by Katherine Locke

“When sixteen-year-old Ellie Baum accidentally time-travels via red balloon to 1988 East Berlin, she’s caught up in a conspiracy of history and magic. She meets members of an underground guild in East Berlin who use balloons and magic to help people escape over the Wall—but even to the balloon makers, Ellie’s time travel is a mystery. When it becomes clear that someone is using dark magic to change history, Ellie must risk everything—including her only way home—to stop the process.”

This is my current read actually! Started it last month but baby sleep books got in the way.


The Girl In Times Square


The Girl in Times Square by Paullina Simons

“Living in bustling New York City, Lily Quinn has plenty of distractions and is struggling to finish college as well as pay her rent. But that all pales in comparison when Amy, her best friend and roommate, disappears without a trace.

Spencer O’Malley, a cynical NYPD detective assigned to Amy’s case, immediately captures Lily’s attention. Though he is wary and wrestling with his own demons, he, too, is irresistibly drawn to Lily.

But fate has more in store for Lily than she ever expected. As she looks deeper into the mystery surrounding Amy’s disappearance, Lily finds answers she never imagined she’d find—answers that challenge everything she knows about her own life.

Lily’s search puts her on a collision course with tragedy and love, and gives her a glimpse into the abyss that swallowed her friend . . . until she faces a final confrontation with her own life-changing destiny.”



Far From The Tree by Robin Benway

“A contemporary novel about three adopted siblings who find each other at just the right moment.”

I love Robin’s books so much so I am DELIGHTED to finally read this…I’ve been hating that I was in the newborn fog and couldn’t get to this. I’m SO SO happy it’s received such high praise and is winning awards and things!


So what should I read first?? And remember…leave me any holiday romance recs in the comments! I’m really in the mood for that type of book right now!

  5. I LOVED Foolish Hearts! It left me happy and smiling and now I want all Emma Mills’ books. I really liked The Girl with the Red Balloon too. It has some really emotional parts, and I thought the magic was very intriguing. I am waiting for my library loan on Far From the Tree. I have heard so many good things, I NEED to read it. I hope you get to them all.

  6. I’ve totally been wanting to read Far From the Tree! I can’t wait to hear what you think about this one!

    I recently listened to Call Me Mrs. Miracle on audio. It was a super light, super cute, fun holiday story. It’s not an award winner by any means, but I did enjoy it!
