When in Rome by Sarah Adams: The Fable Reading Guide
Sep 27 2022
Welcome to another month of reading and tabbing; we’ve got another exciting book for October! After spinning the wheel – as we always do to choose our book – I can gladly announce that we’ll be reading a recently released rom-com for October! I know, I know, it would have been pretty fitting to read something spooky or dark academia-esque, but I like to defy expectations and boundaries. So, The Tabbies Annotating Bookclub will be reading “When In Rome” by Sarah Adams!
Why you should read When in RomeSarah is the author of numerous romance novels with cute cartoon covers, but don’t let those fool you (iykyk).One of her most popular books would be “The Cheat Sheet” – a book I’ve wanted to read for ages, but with my ever-growing TBR [To Be Read] shelves, I’ve had to control myself – so when the wheel generator chose her most recent book, we were all pretty ecstatic!“When In Rome” is the perfect book to make you feel all cozy during a cold, rainy night. Encompassing some of my personal favorite tropes – small-town romance, opposites attract, grumpy/sunshine, and forced proximity – I would be lying if I said I wasn’t squealing my lungs out when I saw the little arrow land on the title. Our FMC [Female Main Character], Amelia Rose, is this super well-known pop star who has basically hit a wall of exhaustion, and the girl just Needs. A. Break. So, she drives off to Rome in the middle of the night. No, not Rome, Italy. Rome, Kentucky. When she gets there, though, some unfortunate events leave her on the front lawn of the town grump – who also happens to be trying to run the pie shop his grandmother left him. He obviously has zero patience to deal with a famous pop star, but he lets her stay with him until her car is fixed… but we all know there’ll be more than that.
