New December releases we're excited to read
The longest night of the year is quickly approaching—a wonderful time to curl up under a warm blanket with a good book. Here are some of the books we’re excited to read this December.
Fans of a certain British baking show will enjoy John Allison and Max Sarin’s graphic novel, "The Great British Bump Off." When leaving the tent becomes potentially fatal, Shauna must juggle delighting the judges and catching a murderer.
Competing archeologists working on a dig in the Mexican jungle must contend with a thief sabotaging the dig as well as their growing attraction and complicated past in "Raiders of the Lost Heart" by Jo Segura.
In "Into Siberia," Gregory J. Wallance delves into journalist George Keenan’s 1885 journey to cover Tsarist Russia’s system of exiling dissidents and criminals. The resulting articles and lecture tour were a turning point in American-Russian relations.
For lighter fare, "When I Was Your Age" by Kenan Thompson is a down-to-earth memoir by the former "Nickleodeon star" and Saturday Night Live’s longest-running actor.
Middle grade readers will enjoy the comic book "Tasty: a History of Yummy Experiments" by Victoria Grace Elliott, exploring everything from who pickled the first pickle to the invention of instant ramen.
Teen readers will be entertained by "Seven Minutes in Candyland" by Brian Wasson. Despite hosting a popular couples therapy podcast, Kalvin’s psychologist parents are about to divorce. He starts selling relationship advice and candy to raise money to send them on a romantic trip he hopes will save their marriage.
