TBR Challenge September 2022 – Animals

This month’s TBR prompt, “Animals”, was a bit of a head scratcher. We both love animals, but that doesn’t necessarily translate to animal-centered romances. Lynn found a cozy romance between a cat lover and a dog lover, while Caz found herself a m/m romantic suspense featuring a cat-owning lead. So, what do you think about…

TBR Challenge August 2022 – Blue Collar

If you are one of the romance readers who are pretty much over reading about billionaires, this month’s TBR prompt is right up your alley. Since the prompt was “blue collar”, I started by digging into my stash of category romances. I tend to like stories about everyday, non-billionaire people, so I figured this would…

TBR Challenge May 2022 – Tales of Old

For someone who started out their romance reading career with historicals, a prompt like “Tales of Old” is the perfect catnip. Lynn and Caz took this prompt in rather different directions, with Lynn heading way back into the past with a tale of ninth century Vikings carving out a living in what is now Scotland,…

TBR Challenge April 2022 – Location, Location, Location

When your prompt is simply “Location, location, location,” the TBR Challenge can go all kinds of places (I know, I know…) Caz took this prompt and went for a romance set in a faraway corner of the world. Lynn went for romantic suspense featuring a code and an old house where the setting is practically…

TBR Challenge March 2022 – Grumpy

This month’s TBR challenge prompt of “grumpy” yielded almost an embarrassment of riches. After all, grouchy heroes aren’t exactly a rare find in Romlandia. And grumpy/sunshine romances are having a bit of a moment now, too. Lynn read a recent release that she had been longing to try. That one turns the trope on its…

TBR Challenge February 2022 – Fairy Tale

Fairy tale romance – now there’s a TBR prompt that can go in all kinds of different directions. When we talk about romance, we often talk about “fairytale romances.”  Lynn and Caz took this one to very different places this month. Caz picked a m/m paranormal with a spin on the Rumpelstiltskin story, while Lynn…

November 2021 TBR Challenge – Competition

Healing Her Emergency Doc by Caroline Anderson This theme was a little bit of a headscratcher for me. Off the top of my head, I couldn’t come up with anything in my TBR that might involve competition of any kind. I went combing through my category books, and spotted a medical romance centering on two…

October 2021 TBR Challenge – Gothic

October is the perfect month for reading gothics. Halloween is just around the corner, and who doesn’t want a deliciously shivery book? This month’s TBR Challenge was great fun, and coincidentally, both of us found ourselves venturing to the north of England for brooding, gothic-tinged reads. What books do you like for this time of…
