My late fall TBR list

by | Nov 3, 2018 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

IMG_5779I could call this my winter To Be Read List, but knowing me I’ll have it completed before winter begins. I love completing a goal and beginning a new one. I have some beloved authors here and some new ones. A couple of Christmas treats are included that I can’t wait to give my hours.


I’ll start with A Tale of Two Hearts (Once Upon a Dickens Christmas Book Two) by Michelle Griep. London 1855, an innkeeper’s daughter and a gentleman’s son.

Then, probably the total opposite: The Haunting of Thores-Cross by Karen Perkins. This one involves a young girl, thought to be a witch, in the Yorkshire Moors. Scary? I hope not too much.


An all-time favorite author, Terri Blackstock, has written a Christmas novel, Catching Christmas. I attended a workshop with Terri about twenty years ago, and I taught her daughter French.  Good memories.

To Win Her Favor by Tamera Alexander takes me back to Nashville and Belle Meade Plantation, 1869. An Irishman, thoroughbreds, and racing. I love everything Tamera writes.

IMG_5784Seven authors (Michelle Griep, Nancy Moser, Erica Vetsch, MaryLu Tyndall, Amanda Barratt, Angela Bell, and Susanne Dietze) have combined their talents in The Regency Brides Collection. I look forward to roaming Jane Austen’s England.


Back to a time period I enjoy, A Heart Set Free by Janet Grunst places the characters in 1770 Virginia where conflict is brewing. Janet is a new author to me.

Another favorite author has made the list with Dawn Crandall’s latest addition to the Everstone Chronicles, Enchanting Nicholette. I’ve read all of Dawn’s books and will continue to be a fan.

You might want to pick up a few of these for your November reading. Share what you are reading now.

    What a colorful list, filled with history adventure and mystery: just your style! I just finished Jesmyn Ward’s “Sing, Unburied, Sing” which takes place in present-day and 1900’s Mississippi. My next is “The Clockmaker’s Daughter” by Kate Morton and the “A Year By The Sea” by Joan Anderson.
