I am terrible at sticking to TBR’s (t e r r i b l e) so when I was thinking about making one for this month I decided to check out last years just to see if I’ve read any of the books from it since. I read one. To be fair there were only four books on it and one of them would have been a reread but still! One book isn’t very good.
For the craic, I’m going to revive 2019s TBR and give it another whirl. Since the book I read was part of a series I’ll add the next one to my TBR now and I’ll include the reread again. I never actually reread it and it’s a good book for this time of the year.
Last year I read Penny Reid’s Grin and Beard It from the list so I’ll continue the series with Dr. Strange Beard and Interview With The Vampire will be my reread.
What are you reading in November?
The first rule of this book club:
You don’t talk about book club.
Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott’s marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.
Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.
Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville’s top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it’ll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife.

A separate memorandum book has been set aside for his various whims, including extravagant financial needs. Heedless of numerous warnings to comply with these strange demands the managers shrug it all of as a practical joke taken too far. Then a sequence of eerie coincidences and tragic events follow, culminating in the sudden disappearance of the beautiful Prima Donna Christine Daae in the middle of a performance.
Tortured by pangs of unrequited love, the mysterious figure living beneath the Opera House has been awaiting his chance to strike- and once he does, he is deadly…
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Anne Rice, this sensuously written spellbinding classic remains ‘the most successful vampire story since Bram Stoker’s Dracula‘ (The Times)
In a darkened room a young man sits telling the macabre and eerie story of his life – the story of a vampire, gifted with eternal life, cursed with an exquisite craving for human blood. Anne Rice’s compulsively readable novel is arguably the most celebrated work of vampire fiction since Bram Stoker’s Dracula was published in 1897.
When Interview with the Vampire was originally published the Washington Post said it was: called Interview with the Vampire a ‘thrilling, strikingly original work of the imagination . . . sometimes horrible, sometimes beautiful, always unforgettable’. Now, more than forty years since its release, Anne Rice’s masterpiece is more beloved than ever.
Hunches, horse races, and heartbreak
Ten years after Simone Payton broke his heart, all Roscoe Winston wants is a doughnut. He’d also like to forget her entirely, but that’s never going to happen. Roscoe remembers everything—every look, every word, every single unrequited second—and the last thing he needs is another memory of Simone.
Unfortunately, after one chance encounter, Simone keeps popping up everywhere he happens to be . . .
Ten years after Roscoe Winston dropped out of her life, all Simone Payton wants is to exploit him. She’d also like some answers from her former best friend about why he ghosted her, but if she never gets those answers, that’s a-okay. Simone let go of the past a long time ago. Seriously, she has. She totally, totally has. She is definitely not still thinking about Roscoe. Nope. She’s more than happy to forget he exists.
But first, she needs just one teeny-tiny favor . . .
