I’m always excited to take a trip to a bookshop to peruse the titles like a literary addict, and each month brings new books to shop and library shelves. Here are some of the titles I’m most excited for this month:
THE GERMAN HOUSE
BY ANNETTE HESS (DEC. 3)
I love a good historical fiction novel, and Hess intends to deliver. Following a woman who’s asked to translate the Auschwitz trials, Hess illustrates the social complications post-World War II. Nazis, lawyers, and powerful women? Sign me up.
CHILDREN OF VIRTUE AND VENGENACE
BY TOMI ADEYEMI (DEC. 3)
The second book is Adeyemi’s Legacy of Orïsha series, Children of Virtue and Vengeance continues to follow Zélie and Amari on their journey to reunite Orïsha. Magic, war, and chaos, Adeyemi’s Orïsha sequel promises to be just as captivating as the first.
THE DEAD GIRLS CLUB
BY DAMIEN ANGELICA WALTERS (DEC. 10)
What do girls want? Novels about serial killers! When do we want them? Now! Walters’ new thriller, The Dead Girls Club, follows Heather, who was once a member of the appellative group. Her friend, Becca, was killed years ago by a notorious serial killer in attempts to prove that the killer was real. But—plot twist!—it was Heather who killed Becca! The question is: Why?
BY JEFF VANDERMEER (DEC. 3)
Those familiar with Vandermeer’s Southern Reach trilogy will be thrilled with this new release. What does it take to save the future of the Earth—of all Earths? Strange science and thrilling horror come to life in Vandermeer’s new novel where the fate of the City depends on three shape-shifting people.
THE WEIGHT OF A SOUL
BY ELIZABETH TAMMI (DEC. 3)
If you’re a fan of Norse mythology, Elizabeth Tammi has come to deliver. When Lena’s sister is found dead, she swears to stop at nothing—even death—to find out what happened to her and how to bring her back. Godsworn deals, the tide of Ragnarök—darkness is all-consuming in this viking-era novel.
WHY CAN’T WORDPRESS MAKE LAYOUT EASIER??
THIS IS JUST SO ANNOYING
These are fairly early releases—and, if by the time I’m posting this, will have only just come out—but there’s still plenty to look forward to! Anticipate even more books to appear during December, like Nalini Singh’s A Madness of Sunshine and The Wives by Tarryn Fisher.
There will always be more books to look forward to—which titles do you have on your radar? Which book are you most looking forward to in December?
