Goodreads Update November 2019

This might be interesting. I have been at home for most of the month. I don't remember adding a bunch of stuff to my list, but I don't remember much from the first two weeks of the month. Only the big things. Let's explore together.

Currently, my Goodreads TBR has 611 books on it. Here are the new ones:


Unfollow: A Journey from Hatred to Hope by Megan Phelps-Roper - The author was raised in the Westboro Baptist Church. She left when she was 26 years old. This is her story.

Jacob's Room

Jacob's Room is Full of Books: A Year of Reading by Susan Hill - Ya girl loves a book about books. This book chronicles a year in the reading life of the author. Imagine my excitement!

Bread and Wine

Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table by Shauna Niequist - I can't remember why I put this specific book on my list, but I've been interested in Niequist's work for awhile. One day I'll probably actually read one.


The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams - This is a new concept in romance writing; at least, it is to me. In this one, this guy's wife is going to leave him because he isn't romantic. He gets into a book club with a bunch of guys who read romance books to figure out what women want them to be like. So instead of a couple finding love, this is a couple staying together.

Ruthless Gods

Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan - This is the sequel to Wicked Saints that I read last spring. It's a fantasy book about a combat between a country that does blood magic and a country that does a different kind of magic.

Start Here

Start Here, Vol.2: Read Your Way Into 25 Amazing Authors edited by Jeff O'Neal and Rebecca Schinsky - Not only is this a book about books and reading, it's also edited by the CEO and Directing Editor at Book Riot. BR is one of the best websites out there for book info. Rebecca Schinsky is one of my two favorite podcasters.

Santa 365

Santa 365 by Spencer Quinn - Before I had surgery I went a little bananas putting things on my kindle. This is one of the things. It's a novella that comes after the 3rd Chet and Bernie mystery. I just need to read that third one.

Tail of Vengeance

Tail of Vengeance by Spencer Quinn - This is another Chet and Bernie novella, but it doesn't matter when you read this one. Woohoo!

Cat was Involved

A Cat Was Involved by Spencer Quinn - And this is the very first extra novella from the series.

Talking to Strangers

Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don't Know by Malcolm Gladwell - I love Malcolm Gladwell. I saw an interview with him where he talked about this book.

Vanderbilt Women

The Vanderbilt Women: Dynasty of Wealth, Glamour, and Tragedy by Clarice Stasz - I am interested in reading about this family from the perspective of a woman.


When the Astors Owned New York: Blue Bloods and Grand Hotels in the Gilded Age by Justin Kaplan - The Astors came a bit before the Vanderbilts and controlled the society that the Vanderbilts wanted to break into.

Frannie Langton

The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins - I had been kind of ignoring this book until I heard it is a Jane Eyre retelling. Then I added it to my list toute suite.

That's everything. Not too shabby.
