5 New Books For Everyone On Your List

With the holiday season upon us, you can be sure to have a few days off work! We plan to spend any—and all—of our free time cuddled up in front of a fireplace with a good book. And while we’ve got a ton of reads on our Christmas list (no surprise there, huh?), we couldn’t wait to skim through the list of new releases for this month! We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites for all the readers on your holiday shopping list.

For the YA Reader

The girl in the tower

1. The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

Available: December 5

In this highly-anticipated sequel to Arden’s The Bear and the Nightingale, young Vasya has to choose between marriage or spending her life in a convent. Unhappy with either choice, she runs—but she doesn’t make it far. Soon, she’s forced to return to Moscow in order to save the city after it comes under attack.

For the Self-Help Guru

You're not that great

2. You’re Not That Great: (but neither is anyone else) by Elan Gale

Available: December 5

Gale’s funny self-help book offers a new kind of thinking in order to improve one’s perspective on life, and it aligns with this theory: “Positive thinking is for assholes. Negative thinking is for winners.” Gale encourages readers to “harness” their negative thoughts and find ways to “make them work.” A certainly interesting read, if we ever saw one!
