I know it’s far to early to be talking about my December to be read, but I’ve still got a few festive ARCs (post coming next week) to get through and I want to be super organised. They are pretty much all I’ve been reading and honestly, I can’t wait to read a book that isn’t an ARC. I’m very grateful of the ARCs I receive but doing 12 reviews every December is a lot.
The Tea Dragon Festival (The Tea Dragon #2) by Kay O’Neill
I recently read the first instalment, The Tea Dragon Society, and I really loved it. The art style, the characters and the story are all super cute. I can’t wait to see how the story will develop.
Check out my review of the Tea Dragon Society here if you want!
Synopsis: Rinn has grown up with the Tea Dragons that inhabit their village, but stumbling across a real dragon turns out to be a different matter entirely! Aedhan is a young dragon who was appointed to protect the village, but fell asleep in the forest eighty years ago. With the aid of Rinn’s adventuring uncle Erik and his partner Hesekiel, they investigate the mystery of his enchanted sleep… but Rinn’s real challenge is to help Aedhan come to terms with feeling that he cannot get back the time he has lost.
Loveless by Alice Oseman
I’ve been wanting to read this for so long it’s actually a bit ridiculous at this point. I told myself in 2022 I would take on less ARCs so I had more time to read the books I actually own, but that did not happen. It’s been a bit of a crazy year so I’ll let myself off.
I’m so excited to read Loveless, I’ve never actually read a book with ace rep before.
Synopsis: It was all sinking in. I’d never had a crush on anyone. No boys, no girls, not a single person I had ever met. What did that mean?
Georgia has never been in love, never kissed anyone, never even had a crush – but as a fanfic-obsessed romantic she’s sure she’ll find her person one day.
As she starts university with her best friends, Pip and Jason, in a whole new town far from home, Georgia’s ready to find romance, and with her outgoing roommate on her side and a place in the Shakespeare Society, her ‘teenage dream’ is in sight.
But when her romance plan wreaks havoc amongst her friends, Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her. With new terms thrown at her – asexual, aromantic – Georgia is more uncertain about her feelings than ever.
Is she destined to remain loveless? Or has she been looking for the wrong thing all along?
