It’s December! Time to sit back, relax a bit, and hopefully put aside the crappy feelings that were a staple of 2020 (at least for a little bit). My reading tastes this month are pretty simple: holiday-themed cozy mysteries!
I’ve read a few of Leslie Meier’s holiday-inspired cozies featuring small town journalist and aspiring sleuth Lucy Stone. This one sounds like it has a bit of A Christmas Carol vibe so it should be fun reading.
I also have some holiday cozies lined up on my kindle, including The Silence of the Elves by Beth Muldoon and Christmas Cupcakes and a Caper by D.E. Haggerty. Bring on the eggnog!
I am also hoping to finish a couple of my current reads, which are titles I chose for my “20 To Read In 2020”. They are novels that require my full attention, though, so we’ll see what my reading mood is as the month goes on.
Goodreads Group Reads
Two books from my Goodreads groups stand out this month, both I highly recommend.
If you are a fan of historical fiction/literature, A Gentleman in Moscow is definitely worth checking out. It’s one of those quiet, unassuming novels that sweeps you back in time and helps you forget the present.
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey is what I would categorize as magical realism, with a fairy tale-like quality. A beautiful and poignant story that fits in well with the holiday season.
Here’s to finding some fun reading for December, I think we all deserve it!
Stay safe, wear a mask, and Happy Reading!
