November TBR and Goodreads Challenge

November TBR

November is a busy month with Thanksgiving and NaNoWriMo, but no worries I will still read. I hope you all had a candy filled Halloween. I’m saving some of our loot to make it through NaNo πŸ˜‰ I have an odd assortment of books this month. If I read 4 this month I will be happy.


  • The Feng Shui Detective Goes West by Nury Vittachi. Honestly, how can I not read a book with that title?
  • Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I’ve never read a book by him but this fits with the Goodreads challenge.
  • Death of a Charming Man by M.C. Beaton. This part of the Hamish Macbeth Mystery Series. New for me.
  • There Goes the Bride by M.C.Beaton. This features Agatha Raisin whom I love.
  • Scrapbook of the Dead by Mollie Cox Bryan. Love the title.


  • Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie. My first Hercule Poirot book.
  • Village Books by Craig McLay. I’m not real sure about this one. It was free.
  • Terror at Bottle Creek by Watt Key
  • After Me by Joyce Scarbrough

I’m still keeping with the cozy mystery Goodreads mini-monthly challenge. Here’s the November challenge:

1. Nov 1 is All Saint’s Day and Nov 2 is All Soul’s Day β€” Read a book with a scene set in a cemetery or graveyard, or that has a tombstone, ghost or skeleton on the cover.

2. November is National Novel Writing Month, November 5 is Book Lovers Day and November 8 Young Readers Day β€” Read a book ABOUT books. That could involve a bookstore, library, Bookmobile, restorer, collector, writer, or book group β€” or even the novel Fahrenheit 451 β€” just so long as it revolves around books.

3. Nov 10 is Forget-Me-Not Day and USMC Day (Marine Corps birthday), and Nov 11 is Veteran’s Day β€” Read a book set during a war, or that features a veteran or someone serving their country. (Suggested authors include Kate Collins, Anne Perry, Jacqueline Winspear and Jasper Fforde.)

4. Nov 17 is World Peace Day β€” Read a book set in a country other than your own.

5. Nov 28 is Red Planet Day . . . how appropriate, since Mars is in the news so frequently these days β€” Read a book with a mostly red cover, or β€” for those who like to read across genres β€” a book set on another planet or that features an alien.

This could be a hard month!
