Hi, my name is Kim and I have been a horrible blogger lately. Good thing I still haven’t posted my non-challenge related reading goals for the year yet. Why you might ask? Well, because one of them was to be a more consistent blogger and that hasn’t happened. Can I blame work? I blame work.
Even though it’s the 25th of the month, I didn’t want to skip out on talking about my favorite books of December. Better late than never, perhaps? 🤦🏻♀️
If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread by Jana Aston
If you’re like me and prefer to read Christmas novels in December, you might want to add this one to your TBR and read it next year. If you can read holiday romance all year long, don’t miss out on this one. It was such a fun book. Two rivals compete in the Great Gingerbread Bake Off and their chemistry is ahhhhhmazing. It was funny, sexy, swoony and perfectly seasonal.
The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare
I’m embarrassed to admit I didn’t read this book sooner. I have no real excuse either as I had a review copy. The good news is there is literally never a bad time to read a Tessa Dare book. The Wallflower Wager was no exception. Oh my god, I loved this book. It was absolutely delightful on audio. Penny and Gabriel were wonderful. The pets added a really fun (and often funny) dynamic to the story. One of my favorite books of 2019!
The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
Is it a little unfair to include a book I’ve read 12 times (now 13) as a favorite book of the month? Eh, maybe, but I don’t really care. I’d be lying if I didn’t say The Wall of Winnipeg and Me is a favorite no matter when (or how many times) I read it. I wanted to read it again near Christmas because of the heartwarming Christmas scene in the book. But, instead of just reading that scene I read the entire thing. No regrets. I’m running out of ways to explain how much I love this book. Van and Aiden are freaking everything. (Note: this book was on my November favorites list and will likely be on my January one as well here in a few days. 🤷🏻♀️I am who I am.)
The Christmas Pact by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
This gem was a really fun way to spend a little over 2 hours. Riley and Kennedy’s enemies to friends with a side of fake it till you make it was too stinking cute. It gave me giggles and a few feels. (And tears.) Loved. Bonus: Andi Arndt narrates and she’s a goddess.
What were your favorite books of December?
