The week before Christmas and I'm reading


I only have to work today and tomorrow, and then, I'm off for the rest of the year! Hopefully, I will continue to whiddle down my TBR pile over the holidays and have a bunch of great books to tell you about in 2013.

I'm not going anywhere. There will continue to be new posts each day including special guests and books for the holidays. I hope you will drop by each day.

When a nice girl asks twelve men to get naked, it's sure to cause a scandal...
Emma Tremayne leaves her high-powered PR job and moves to the Lake District looking for peace, quiet-and celibacy. So perhaps it's not the best idea when, in the spirit of "community-mindedness," she agrees to help the local mountain rescue team fund raise by putting together a "tasteful" nude calendar. Especially since quite a lot of the community seems to mind what she's up to-including the tall, dark and handsome Mr. December, Will Tennant, who appears to have gotten the wrong impression about Emma's intentions. So how does she convince him that he's more than just the flavor of the month? From

Gen Y has been picked apart by analysts, statistics, and trend reports, which often portray 20-somethings in negative, one-dimensional terms like "entitled" and "whiners". In this thought-provoking new book that aims to dispel these stereotypes, journalist Hannah Seligson chronicles the lives of seven individuals who embody this generation, exploring their challenges and ambitions in vivid detail and sketching a picture, through their eyes, of what life is actually like for young adults. Through these first-hand stories, readers will discover the transformational effect this enterprising, open-minded, innovative, and diverse generation is having on society. From

  1. The first line of the description of Dating Mr. December made me laugh. :-) Both these books sound interesting. Dating Mr. December reminds me of the British movie Calendar Girls.

    1. The Lifetime movie The 12 Men of Christmas is based on Dating Mr. December.

  2. Dating Mr. December, interesting, i'm intriuged.

    1. Dating Mr. December was a fun read, particularly for this time of year when life can be stressful and you just want to lose yourself in a steamy fantasy.

  3. Oooh Mission: Adulthood sounds like my kind of nonfiction. Interested to hear your reaction once you finish!

    1. Mission: Adulthood is really interesting so far. I'm hoping to finish it up over the holidays.
