I may regret this one but for my December Book of the Month I chose The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty. Liberty talked about it on All the Books and she is the guest judge who chose it. It is the first book in a series though so hopefully there’s no big cliff hanger. That will be upsetting. I thought about Chalk Man for a hot second but decided against it. I already have The English Wife (love Lauren Willig – review of previous books here and here) and Eleanor Oliphant on my Kindle. Although I almost chose Eleanor because Gabrielle Union was the guest judge who picked that book and I’m recently obsessed with her after reading her memoir, We’re Going to Need More Wine.
