The question, this month and every month, is what book or books are you most looking forward to this month?
As a special case for December, the question may possibly be what book or books are you most hoping to find among your holiday presents?
Because of the holidays, the period between Thanksgiving and New Years Day is a bit of a fallow period for publishing. Not many new books come out this month, particularly in comparison to the big spring and fall publishing seasons. Which doesn’t mean there aren’t a few really good books on the reading horizon.
And that’s an excellent thing, because the winter months are always a great time to curl up with a cup of tea or cocoa, a good book, and a sleepy cat.
There are a few books I’m really looking forward to this month. There are always a few books I’m looking forward to every month.
But this month in particular, there’s For the Sake of the Game, edited by Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger. This is the latest entry in their annual collection of new stories inspired by the Sherlock Holmes canon, and it always contains one or more marvelous stories. I’m sure that this year will be no exception.
There are also two historical romances that look like a lot of fun. One is Not the Duke’s Darling by Elizabeth Hoyt. This is the first book in her new Greycourt series. It’s always good to get in at the beginning, because her series are always excellent. Eva Leigh’s London Underground series has certainly been terrific, so I’m also looking forward to the upcoming book in that series, Dare to Love a Duke.
And last but certainly not least, comes The Gown by Jennifer Robson, all about the fascinating women who made Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding gown. This book should be very, very grand indeed – just like the gown itself.
