The Gnomes Have Got It Going On

Greetings Garden Party Vampires,

It’s finally here! The Garden Gnomes and Garlic Cloves Paranormal Romance Vampire Book Club reading list for the rest of 2020!

I know you’ve been waiting to sink your teeth into a good book that has nothing to do with what’s going on in the news…

I have taken that idea to heart and made a list of engrossing, vampire-loving, binge-worthy books (that are all part of a series, so have at yee if you want to go down your own #vampirebookclub hole…)

Bodice ripping, paranormal romance loving, brain candy–and a cocktail? Don’t mind if I do! Don’t drink? We will always include the mocktail version for those reading sessions where you really do want to remember every word… and yes, this is a ‘Sunday brunch cocktail’, so that means that there is a baked treat inspired by every month’s books because reading requires breakfast. Maybe even a second breakfast.

Without further ado, here is the reading schedule!

October 25th

Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer Companion book to Twilight Series GGGC Book Club meeting

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris Book 1 of the Southern Vampire Mystery Series #gardenpartyreview

November 22nd  

A Quick Bite Lynsay Sands Book 1 of The Argeneau Series GGGC Book Club meeting

Halfway to the Grave Jeaniene Frost Book 1 of The Cat and Bones Vampire Series #gardenpartyreview

December 20th 

Bite Before Christmas by Lynsay Sands, Jeanine Frost GGGC Book Club meeting

Shadow’s Claim by Kresley Cole #gardenpartyreview

This list, as well as all future GGGC announcements can be found on this page.

A note about #GGGC book club meetings: The first book listed each month (GGGC Book Club meeting) will be discussed IN DEPTH, and have SPOILERS because we’re hoping you will all have read it!

The #gardenpartyreview books will be given a spoiler-free review and is really just an excuse to have another cocktail and talk about how vampires don’t suck like 2020 does. Feel free to read one, or both! You do you. Tune in to GGGC Book Club meetings on Discord–and if you miss it, no problem, we’ll record the live stream and post it to my YouTube channel which is coming soon.

Books are available wherever books are sold but might I recommend @IndieBound Book shop and @Malaprops Local Bookstore

Support local and support indie whenever and wherever possible!

I will be posting the Midnight Sun and Dead Until Dark inspired cocktails and recipes now and leading up to the our first virtual book club meeting on October 25th. Join the Discord Server to participate in the book club meetings–it’s EASY and FREE.
