TBR Mix N’ Mingle – December 2018

Merry Christmas everyone!! We’re smack in the middle of my favorite time of year, but I’m still hoping to get lots of reading in this December. Join us and share your December TBR Mix n’ Mingle list! I’m co-hosting this linkup with Literary Quicksand and Allison at My Novel Life. Remember to join us on the first Wednesday of each month and linkup your TBR posts! Here’s what I plan to read in December.

December To Be Read List:

Merry and Bright by Debbie Macomber

It’s that time of year when cheesy romantic movies abound, so why not extend that to books!? I searched for Christmas stories on my library’s website and came across this novel. When Merry’s family creates an online dating profile for her, the matches start rolling in. She’s skeptical at first, but decides to give it a whirl.




The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

Keeping up with the winter theme, I’m longing to read the second book in this trilogy set in Russia. I adored The Bear and the Nightingale, so I’m eager to find out if the continuation of the story is just as intriguing. 





The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller

I kept hearing such wonderful reviews of this charming book, but never got around to reading it. Louise is a fun follow on Instagram as well, since she often mixes photos of books and baking!






Don’t forget to visit Literary Quicksand and Allison at My Novel Life as well as a few other bloggers in the linkup!

Our next linkup will be Wednesday, January 2nd!

    I LOVE the Winter Night Trilogy – the third book comes out in January and I can’t wait to read it! Also, The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living has been on my list for awhile and I seriously want to read it… this is just the perfect time of year for reading, and so many books seem to fit the season. I want to read them all!

      Glad to hear you liked the second book just as much! I didn’t realize the third one comes out so soon. Perfect timing!

    I read Merry and Bright last year and it was adorable! I try to read her new Christmas books every year, along with Richard Paul Evans.

    You know, I’m not sure I’ve ever read a Christmas book. I like to watch a cheesy Christmas movie here and there, so maybe a light Christmasy book would be a good departure from my usual heavier reading. I’m headed to the library today, and you’ve inspired me to check out what’s available–thanks! 🙂

    I have never really read any Christmas books around the holidays but I’m thinking that needs to change next year!

    Enjoy The Girl in the Tower! Where The Bear and the Nightingale is more of a slower paced world building book, TGitT is action packed from start to finish! I LOVED it 🙂 I am anxiously awaiting the 3rd installment on January 8th.
