New Releases for December

Once again, we are in the last month of another year. I can’t believe that 2012 is almost over. It seems like my kids just started school… Since it’s almost Christmas, I hope this list will help you decide what books to give someone, what books to ask for, and/or what books to purchase with those gift cards you might receive. As for me, I’ve yet to read any December books. I know, I know, but I’m woefully behind on my reading. Perhaps that is what I should wish for—more time to read! I am looking forward to reading The Importance of Being Wicked by Miranda Neville and Obsession Wears Opals by Renee Bernard. 

Which December releases have you read? Of those, which ones do you recommend? Which ones are you most looking forward to reading? Tell us and one lucky commenter will win a random book from my prize stash!

 

Until January, happy reading!

  7. Here are a couple digital self-published books out this month: Bewitching the Duke by Christie Kelley (Dec. 6) and The Patrician by Joan Kayse (Nov. 24 - not December but close enough).

    I read and loved the Kelley book (review coming) and have the Kayse on my tbr.

    I'm also loving all the Christmas novellas coming out this month!

  8. My December list is shorter than usual, Andrea. I've read The Bridegroom Wore Plaid by Grace Burrowes, How to Deceive a Duke by Lecia Cornwall, and The Importance of Being Wicked by Miranda Neville. Bewitching the Duke and The Patrician are on my Kindle, PJ, and the following are on my TBB list:

    When the Duke Found Love – Isabella Bradford
    Ripe for Seduction –Isobel Carr
    Born to Scandal –Diane Gaston
    What an Earl Wants –Kasey Michaels
    A Private Duel with Agent Gunn – Jillian Stone
    Vanity Fare – Megan Caldwell
    Finding Home – Lois Greiman

    I think I've made up for the short December list by having already read 18 January releases with quite a few still to read when they are released. I've also been rereading a lot of Christmas favorites.

  13. I want all the historicals and then the romantic suspense and then the paranormals...lol. If I had to pick just one I am going with Grace Burrowes and The Bridegroom Wore Plaid. I just finished Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight and enjoyed it and since I love those Scottish historicals, I know it's going to be good!

  17. hoping to do a little tbr pile tackling this month since its lite on releases. red Kiss of Surrender as soon as it downloaded on the e-reader -- I so enjoy Sandra's offbeat humor. Hammer Down is pretty good (read that a few months ago after it came out as an ebook & looking forward to more in that series). Still need to pick up Miranda's the Importance of Being Wicked -- could be a good Christmas day read for me :)
