December TBR | Blogmas Day 4
Die for Me, Until I Die and If I Should Die
When Kate Mercier’s parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life–and memories–behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.
Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant–an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.
This is a series that has been sat on my shelf for months, if not years and I have never made the time to get around to reading it. So here it is on my December TBR! Well this will be a make or break kind of situation for this series. If I hate it then it’ll be donated to the nearest charity shop. I can see it being a walking trope, and sometimes I really enjoy that but sometimes it can be too much and I struggle. So we will see.
Dance With Dragons: After the Feast
The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance.
In King’s Landing the Queen Regent, Cersei Lannister, awaits trial, abandoned by all those she trusted; while in the eastern city of Yunkai her brother Tyrion has been sold as a slave. From the Wall, having left his wife and the Red Priestess Melisandre under the protection of Jon Snow, Stannis Baratheon marches south to confront the Boltons at Winterfell. But beyond the Wall the wildling armies are massing for an assault…
On all sides bitter conflicts are reigniting, played out by a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves. The tides of destiny will inevitably lead to the greatest dance of all.
The last book in the published Song of Ice and Fire series. There’s supposed to be another book, but who knows when that will be gracing our presence to be honest. I made it to the last book, my aim was to read all of them before the year was out so if I get through this one, I’ll have managed it. So it’s on my December TBR as the ending of my own personal challenge of the year!
The Girl on the Train
EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
I have heard good things about this book and it sounds like something I would enjoy. I love the intrigue of it all and the story line. I’m not counting on getting to it though. I have set myself quite a mammoth reading list on my December TBR but we are travelling to Ireland for Christmas, so I’ll have a little bit of time with that.
What’s on your December TBR? I would love to hear what you’re wanting to get to this month or if you have any opinions on the books I’m reading this month.
