It's crazy that December is already here, but I'm ready for peppermint everything, fairy lights everywhere, buying and getting presents, and some holiday cheer! Oh and also all of the incredible movies coming out this month. I am SO READY for Rogue One!



Following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (Casper Phillipson), First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman) fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband's historic legacy. I'm pretty sure Natalie Portman can do no wrong. (December 2)

Starring Jennifer Aniston, Kate McKinnon, Olivia Munn, T.J. Miller, and Jason Bateman. Sometimes you just have to watch the silly movie and laugh until you pee! (December 9)

Miss Sloane 
In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C.

Books & Music -- December 2016
Spindle (A Thousand Nights #2) by E.K. Johnson -- It has been generations since the Storyteller Queen drove the demon out of her husband and saved her country from fire and blood. Her family has prospered and the demons are kept prisoner by bright iron, and by the creatures the Storyteller Queen made to keep them contained. But the prison is crumbling. (December 6)

The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds by Michael Lewis -- Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original studies undoing our assumptions about the decision-making process.

Zero Day by Jan Gangsei -- Eight years ago, Addie Webster was the victim of the most notorious kidnapping of the decade. Addie vanished. Mark Webster is now president of the United States, fighting to keep the Oval Office after a tumultuous first term. Then the unthinkable happens: the president's daughter resurfaces. Darrow Fergusson, Addie's childhood best frien, agrees to spy on her. (December 6)

The Blood Lie by Shirley Reva Vernick -- Inspired by true events that affected debut novelist Vernick's relatives, this historical drama tackles the weighty issue of anti-Semitism. It's 1928, on the eve of Yom Kippur, and 16-year-old Jack Pool is unexpectedly thrust into the spotlight when a young girl vanishes. Smugglers in need of a distraction blame Jack and the rest of the Jewish community in their small upstate New York town, prompting illegal searches and persecution. (December 13)

Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider -- Up until his diagnosis, Lane lived a fairly predictable life. But when he finds himself at a tuberculosis sanatorium called Latham House, he discovers an insular world with paradoxical rules, med sensors, and an eccentric yet utterly compelling confidante named Sadie—and life as Lane knows it will never be the same. (December 20)

Losers Take All by David Klass -- At Jack Logan's sports-crazy New Jersey high school, the new rule is that all kids must play on a team. So Jack and a ragtag group of anti-athletic friends decide to get even. They are going to start a rebel JV soccer team whose mission is to avoid victory at any cost, but somehow the team's losing formula becomes increasingly successful at attracting fans and attention. (December 20)

Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill -- Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, a legendary bounty hunter—that is, until her father is murdered. The alleged killer is none other than Cohen Mackay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart.  (December 27)
