Goodreads Update November 2018

I fear that I may have added a lot of books to my TBR this month.

The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas - This is a YA mystery. 5 years after the entire cheerleading team was wiped out by murder and accident, the younger sister of one of the dead cheerleaders decides to find out what realy happened.

Craven Manor by Darcy Coates - I mostly put this on my TBR because of the cover.
Craven Manor

Dracul by Dacre Stoker - If you have to ask why this is on my TBR, you haven't been paying attention.

Imagining Character: Six Conversations About Women Writers: Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, Willa Cather, Iris Murdoch, and Toni Morrison by A.S. Byatt - This book had me at Jane Austen, but it's also by A.S. Byatt which is also a draw.

Q's Legacy: A Delightful Account of a Lifelong Love Affair with Books by Helene Hanff - Ok. So what we have here is a book about books and reading by Helene Hanff. What's not to love.

George Eliot by Jenny Uglow - Yes, please.

South Toward Home: Travels in Southern Literature by Margeret Eby - I have a weird fascination with Southern Lit.

The Books That Changed My Life: Reflections by 100 Authors, Actors, Musicians, and Other Remarkable People by Bethanne Patrick - A book about books and reading. So, of course.

An Elegant Madness: High Society in Regency England by Venetia Murray - Jane Austen history. Thank you very much.

The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox - I honestly can't remember why I added this one.

Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield - I loved her first one. Not so much the second. We'll see.
