November 2021 TBR

October was a bit of a lackluster reading month for me, but I’m hoping I can make up for it in November, especially I’m not traveling for Thanksgiving. I’m also so close to hitting my reading goal for the year so let’s see if we can hit it in November!

I feel like I’ll continue to be a bit of a moody reader this month, but a lot of these books fit with the current reading mood. Here’s what’s on my to be read list:

March 2021 Recap

I cannot believe we’re already at the end of March – this month feels like it’s flown by! This was my first full month back to blogging and I have to say I am loving it! Not only did I relaunch my blog this month, but I also launched my bookstagram @overflowingshelf and I’ve been having so much fun.

My whole reason for my blog and Instagram was to connect with other readers as I missed talking about books with people as passionate about them as I am. Thank you to everyone who has followed and come along on this journey so far – it’s been a blast and I’m hoping to keep it up for as long as I can!

With that out of the way, let’s dive into the March recap!

This is a tough review for me to write as I really love Joanna Shupe’s books, but I did not enjoy this one. 

Pitched as the Bachelor in the Gilded Age Newport, I thought this would be right up my alley as there tends to be a lot of heart aches and feelings in books of this type. As I was reading, though, I’d say this book is only very loosely Bachelor related. The story follows Harrison Archer, the black sheep of his family, who has returned back to New York from Paris after he was disinherited 3 years ago. Having amassed a fortune while he was away, he returns home to destroy his family, who are now broke and need him to marry an heiress to restore the family finances. When he finds his childhood friend who he was in love with, Maddie Webster, is still unmarried he decides to play along with his family’s scheme. Harrison asks Maddie to host a party in Newport to bring together all the eligible heiresses, though he only intends to win over one – Maddie.
