December 2023 New Releases

Happy December! I’m still waiting for winter to arrive here in Georgia but while I’m waiting I can occupy my time with all of the FANTASTIC-looking books releasing this month! December is typically a lighter month for new books but there are still 89 titles on this list of December 2023 New Releases that are on my radar, and they comprise a range of genres – contemporary, historical, cozy mystery, suspense, Amish fiction, children’s books, fantasy, and young adult. And, of course, expect to see lots of romance because it’s me, after all 😉 All books listed are Christian or clean in content, to the best of my knowledge.

    Is that book by Elizabeth Marie legit? It looks like a copycat book of Elizabeth Maddreys billionaire books. Shame on that person for trying to fool me into thinking it was a new book by one of my favorite authors.
