Book List


December, December, December.

Last month of every year. What difference does it make to a reader?

Here are five books to look out for this wintry month.

The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami

From internationally acclaimed author Haruki Murakami—a fantastical illustrated short novel about a boy imprisoned in a nightmarish library.

The Keeper by Tim Howard

Howard opens up for the first time about how a hyperactive kid from New Jersey with Tourette’s syndrome defied the odds to become one of the world’s premier goalkeepers.


The Bourne Ascendancy by Eric van Lustbader

In this thrilling and absorbing new novel Jason Bourne is faced with an impossible mission. He has been hired to impersonate a high-level government minister at a political summit meeting in Qatar, shielding the minister from any assassination attempts. The target, however, isn’t the minister Bourne impersonates, it is Bourne himself.

The Storied Life of A.J. Fiery by Gabrielle Zevin

A. J. Fikry, the irascible owner of Island Books, has recently endured some tough years: his wife has died, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and his prized possession–a rare edition of Poe poems–has been stolen. Over time, he has given up on people, and even the books in his store, instead of offering solace, are yet another reminder of a world that is changing too rapidly. Until a most unexpected occurrence gives him the chance to make his life over and see things anew.

ASAP Science by Motffit & Brown

From the creators of the wildly popular and seriously scientific YouTube channel, AsapSCIENCE, comes entertaining, irreverent, and totally accessible answers to the questions you never got to ask in science class.

So what Books are you looking forward to read in December?



  1. I’m mainly finishing up books that I started reading and stopped this month, but the new books I’ve started reading are Seige and Storm by Leigh Bardugo and Say Her Name by James Dawson.


  2. I LOVE ASAPSCIENCE! It’s incredible that they’ve published a new book with wonderful weird scientific facts! That’s amazing! 😀


  3. Murakami is such a talented author, great addition to your list! I just finished reading Silence Once Begun by Jesse Ball, and it reminded me a lot of Murakami. You should check it out!


  4. ASAP Science seems like a new ‘victim’ for my TBR list.
    Lots of books are waiting to be processed. Very special: “Ascending Spiral” by Bob Rich and “Panama” by C. S. Boyack…

  5. I will be reading Murakami’s Kafka on the Shore. I kind of made this Winter Reads list but its spontaneous. According to my mood, I’d choose the book. So far my Winter Reads include The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan (read), The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion (currently reading) and Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami (to-read). How many stars do you give The Strange Library?
