This is a pretty dull month… I was only able to find three books I’m adding to my TBR from December’s anticipated releases. So, they are all listed here. I had to dig deep to even come up with three. One book is being re-published with a new edition in December, and the other two are sequels (and series conclusions) to books I haven’t even read yet. I’m sure my wallet and my stuffed bookshelves will appreciate the brief reprieve. lol.
Heartbreak Boys by Simon James Green
Release Date: December 20, 2022
A road trip rom-com about heartbreak, social media hijinks, and learning to be happy with who you are, perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Phil Stamper.
One of the most hilarious, heart-flippingly romantic, charmingly observant writers in the game right now. –Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda
When their ex-boyfriends get together and start Instagramming a disgustingly perfect summer of love, Jack and Nate decide to concoct a mutual Insta-worthy summer adventure of their own to prove they’re just fine and everything’s great.
Of course, it’s hard to have an epic summer road trip when they’re stuck in a van with Nate’s mid-life crisis-bound parents and his annoying younger sister. And it’s been years since Jack and Nate have said more than a few sentences to each other. But their followers don’t have to know any of that.
How hard could faking the high life be? Posting as @TheHeartBreakBoys, the duo stumbles into one hilarious situation after another–and each discover that maybe the cure for heartbreak has been the boy riding next to him all along.

The Ivory Tomb by Melissa Caruso

The Ivory Tomb concludes the wildly original epic fantasy series bursting with intrigue and ambition, questioned loyalties, and broken magic that began with The Obsidian Tower.

By blood the Door was opened and only by blood will the Dark Days end.
