December 2021 Book Haul

As every book lover, I always fail when I think about not buying more books. But at least seems like I have it in some kind of control, having got those mostly on huge sales on Kindle.

Dragonflight and Tarnished and Torn I go on paper to read during my trip to (and my stay in) Brazil. I already have Dragonflight on Kindle, but since I was not bringing it here, I decided to get it on paper. Ultimately I decided to bring my Kindle with me, so I'll give it to my mother, but it's alright. Tarnished and Torn is the 5th book in a cozy mystery series, and it'll be a great read for winter time when I'm back home.

Tarnished and Torn (A Witchcraft Mystery, #5)

Juliet Blackwell

As the owner of a popular vintage clothing store, Lily Ivory can enjoy a day of antique jewelry shopping and still call it work. But as one of San Francisco’s resident witches, searching for hidden treasures can sometimes lead to dangerous discoveries...

Dragonquest (Pern, #2)

Anne McCaffrey

Another Turn, and the deadly silver Threads began falling again. So the bold dragonriders took to the air once more and their magnificent flying dragons swirled and swooped, belching flames that destroyed the shimmering strands before they reach the ground.

Broken is the 3rd book by Jenny Lawson, and considering how much I enjoyed the other 2 (I completely adored Furiously Happy), I got to get this one. And Brief Answers has been on my list since the first time I saw it, and considering it was never on sale on paper, I needed to get it when it got cheaper on Kindle.

Broken (in the best possible way)

Jenny Lawson

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened comes a deeply relatable book filled with humor and honesty about depression and anxiety.

Brief Answers to the Big Questions

Stephen Hawking

Will humanity survive? Should we colonize space? Does God exist? ​​These are just a few of the questions Hawking addresses in this wide-ranging, passionately argued final book from one of the greatest minds in history.

I saw Kings of the Wyld be recommended on Daniel Greene's channel, and... a funny fantasy series? Count me in! BTW, if you are looking for some laughs, there's The Dragon Lords series, which I have a short review here. Sawkill Girls looks like an interesting sapphic horror book (a la Wilder Girls), so I'll give it a try!

Kings of the Wyld (The Band, #1)

Nicholas Eames

Clay Cooper and his band were once the best of the best -- the meanest, dirtiest, most feared crew of mercenaries this side of the Heartwyld.

Their glory days long past, the mercs have grown apart and grown old, fat, drunk - or a combination of the three. Then an ex-bandmate turns up at Clay's door with a plea for help. His daughter Rose is trapped in a city besieged by an enemy one hundred thousand strong and hungry for blood. Rescuing Rose is the kind of mission that only the very brave or the very stupid would sign up for.

Sawkill Girls

Claire Legrand

Beware of the woods and the dark, dank deep. He’ll follow you home, and he won’t let you sleep. \[...\] Where girls have been disappearing for decades, stolen away by a ravenous evil no one has dared to fight… until now.
