December's new releases I want to "add to basket"

There's one particular book that I'm really looking forward to finally reading in December.

The Boys of Summer
C.J. Duggan

It seemed only natural to nickname them the ‘Onslow Boys’. Every time they swaggered in the front door of the Onslow Hotel after a hard week’s work, their laughter was loud and genuine as they settled onto their bar stools. I peeked through the restaurant partition, a flimsy divider between my world and theirs. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw them, saw him ... Toby Morrison.

Quiet seventeen-year-old Tess doesn’t relish the thought of a summertime job. She wants nothing more than to forget the past haunts of high school and have fun with her best friends before the dreaded Year Twelve begins.
To Tess, summer is when everything happens: riding bikes down to the lake, watching the fireworks at the Onslow Show and water bomb fights at the sweltering Sunday markets.

How did she let her friends talk her into working?

After first-shift disasters, rude, wealthy tourists and a taunting ex-boyfriend, Tess is convinced nothing good can come of working her summer away. However, Tess finds unlikely allies in a group of locals dubbed ‘The Onslow Boys’, who are old enough to drive cars, drink beer and not worry about curfews. Tess’s summer of working expands her world with a series of first times with new friends, forbidden love and heartbreaking chaos.

All with the one boy she has never been able to forget.

It will be a summer she will always remember. 

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! C.J. is actually the first blogging friend I ever made, we have similar taste in books but whereas I'm just a reader C.J. is actually a reader and an author. And a pretty amazing author at that. I'm beyond excited to finally get to read The Boys of Summer. CANNOT WAIT!!!

Oh, and some other authors have books out that look pretty good...

What books are you hoping Santa will bring you?

  1. I want to read Death Angel as well, Lesley, but I'haven't tackled Messenger's Angel yet, so this will have to wait. It's doubly nice when your blogger friend turns an author :) I wish her the best of luck!!!
