10 Must-Read Books to Read in December 2022

There is only one more month until it is over. It’s almost unimaginable to recognize that this year went by so quickly. It was like we were sitting tight with fingers crossed, praying for covid 19 to be over, and now look at us, so we moved on as if it never happened. Just like the saying goes, life goes on. There’s still some of 2022 left, and you know the drill. We’re going to talk about some fantastic books publishing in December 2022.

Preparing a monthly book list for myself and you all have become a hobby for me. Since it was the last month of this year, 2022, I also continued to do the same for the following month! Also, if there’s a time of the year when one particularly wants to read, it’s the winter holiday season, that is, December.

Not all of December is packed for publishing new books this year, though many excellent books ARE going to be out this month, enough to keep us going for the month (even a bit more). Most books are expected to be published on either the 6th, 13th, or 27th of December 2022, but they’re super unique, and we’re going to have a lot of fun!

I’ve outlined a few outstanding novels due in December 2022 that everyone should read at least once. Go on and enjoy!

A young woman in Sardinia in 1900 gained employment as a seamstress for a wealthy family thanks to her extraordinary aptitude with a needle. The experienced sewer discreetly takes measurements, sketches designs, and mends hems inside this wealthy environment that is far different from her lowly beginnings.

In the solitude, she also hears whispered secrets and stories of everyone around her. This small Italian city and its inhabitants come into focus through the vigilant young seamstress’s eyes in all their liveliness, vanity, and fragility—flawed yet amiable individuals who are not exactly what they claim to be.

The Provera sisters conceal their financial struggles with their pricey Parisian outfits. The Marchesa Esther is a woman who rides horses and learns mechanics and ancient Greek. Miss Lily Rose, an adventurous American journalist, and Assuntina, the wild child, are among them.

Men of all ages—young, old, and in between—are present. There are also love triangles, heartbreaks, and even murder (or was it a suicide?). And in the middle, waiting and watching, is the seamstress, a bright, aspirational young woman with a kind heart and an impossibly lofty desire.

Squirrel in the backyard. I see a rat in the wall. A street-side pigeon For so long of human history, we have drawn a clear distinction between urban areas and natural areas. We react with dread, fury, or simply annoyance when animals appear in places we don’t want them or expect them to. It isn’t an animal anymore. It’s a bother.

Pests are more than just a simple plea to take a closer look at our urban ecosystem; it sits at the nexus of science, history, and narrative journalism. The animals we despise do not have a natural past. This book is instead about us. It has to do with what labeling an animal as a pest implies about people, our lifestyles, and our desires.
