A Very Merry December TBR

It’s December, the final reading month of the year! I love the cozy reading vibes of this month, combined with the glow of lights and candles. And I also enjoy leaning in to reads that are set during the festive season to round out the year. 

My last themed TBR for October (Witchtober) didn’t go too well. I only got to two of the books on my list, and I finished one of them a few days into November. Still, I like to set an ambitious goal and stretch for it, even if I know I’m unlikely to meet it. So, in the spirit of shooting for the stars, here’s my December TBR.

Kiss Her Once for Me by Alison Cochrun

A sapphic holiday rom com with featuring a marriage of convenience plot with a twist. 

The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer 

This story about a Jewish romance novelist with a Christmasy secret was on my list last year and I never got to it. So, I’m hoping to make it happen in 2022.

A Cat Cafe Christmas by Cody Gary 

Cats. Cafes. Christmas. Enough said. This one is currently backordered on Bookshop.org so it seems like a popular choice this year. 

All I Want for Christmas by Maggie Knox

I read their previous holiday rom-com last year, so I figured I’d make a tradition of it. Hoping to enjoy this one a bit more than The Holiday Swap. 

The Holiday Trap* by Roan Parrish 

I love a good “let’s swap homes” story, particularly with a holiday twist, so I couldn’t resist this one. 


I read five books last month, and there’s even more vacation days in December, so this list of five doesn’t feel too far-fetched for the holiday season. 

What’s on your reading list for the last month of the year, book friends? Do we have any reading goals in common?
