If you’ve been looking for new books to look forward to during the holiday season, the wait is officially over! It’s Dec. 1, which means book releases for a new month with new stories to tell. These books could be the perfect Christmas gift for the book lover in your life because you never know what books they’ve already read.
I can guarantee you that they won’t have any of these yet.
1. Heartstopper: Volume Five by Alice Oseman
The fifth graphic novel in the bestselling series turned Netflix hit show is available Dec. 19. Although the book release is earlier in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, Dec. 19 is the United States release day.
The fifth volume will follow Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring, a young couple who just said that they love each other. According to a brief synopsis on the author’s website, it’s almost time for Nick to go off to university. This already leaves fans of the books wondering: What will happen to Nick and Charlie when that happens?
2. Flores and Miss Paula by Melissa Rivero
This Dec. 5 release delves into complicated mother-daughter relationships with Paula and Flores, a Peruvian immigrant and her millennial daughter. After Flores finds a handwritten note beneath her father’s urn, it takes the two on a journey of self-discovery within their relationship and within themselves.
3. Yours for the Taking by Gabrielle Korn
Another novel that releases on Dec. 5 this year is Yours for the Taking, which takes place in 2050. Climate change has made the world practically unlivable, and the only people who are completely safe are part of The Inside Project, which was created by a corporate feminist named Jacqueline Millender.
But is The Inside Project everything it’s supposed to be? And what happens when one person is accepted, but not the people that she loves?
4. Meet the Benedettos by Katie Cutugno
Cutugno’s newest work was coined “The Kardashians meets Pride and Prejudice,” and if that doesn’t spark intrigue, then I don’t know what does. Meet the Benedettos tells the tale of five sisters who found stardom on a reality television show, but now they’re all broke and living in their parents’ house together.
The novel certainly leans into its Pride and Prejudice inspiration by naming the two men who show up in the neighborhood Darcy and Bingley, with one clashing with a sister and the other immediately smitten with the eldest of the bunch.
The modern novel with a twist is available Dec. 5, but it can be preordered now.
