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?

I read three of these, all pretty fun. The Matzah Ball was my favorite, but all were pretty festive. I hope you find many hits in the stack.
Good to know! I’m going to read that one soon since I missed out on it last year.
I loved The Matzah Ball very much. I hope you get a chance to read and enjoy all these books.
Thank you! That was the one I was most disappointed I didn’t get to last year so I’m making it a priority this year!
