This meme is hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading. By the first Saturday of the month, I’ll pick three books from my massive TBR pile and then you will vote which one I read. Majority vote wins and I’ll post the winner on the second Saturday of the month. Then I will read the book and on the last Saturday of the month I’ll share what I thought about the book you picked for me to read. Fun right 😀 I’ve tweaked this meme just a little and will also share with you what I plan to read for the month. Voting is at the bottom.
Happy September (and Friday) y’all! How is it a new month already?! This year is going so fast. Last month I didn’t do so well with my TBR reads. I only read 4 out of the 11 on my list, so a few of these are repeats from August. I’ll list the new ones first 😉
Forget Tomorrow, Remember Yesterday, and Seize Today by Pintip Dunn: I’m really excited to dive into this dystopian series. Each book is a standalone but tie together to tell an entire story. Love books like this! Planning to start these today!
Never Apart by Romily Bernard: The blurb hooked me! This particular book is about a girl who relives the same five days over and over again, watching her boyfriend be killed and not being able to stop it. Sounds like a haunting Groundhog’s Day so I’m in!
The Strategist by Gerrard Cowan: I LOVED the first book of this series, The Machinist. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever read and when the author emailed asking if I’d like to review this one, I jumped on it. And the timing couldn’t have been more perfect as my husband and I were just talking about the book. I made him read the first one 😉
The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle: “Inspired by the Goblin Market” that’s all I need to know!
Satellite by Nick Lake: First, the cover is gorgeous! Second that blurb ? And Third, I cannot wait to read this. I love scifi and this is an interesting twist. A boy raised on a space station going to Earth for the first time?! Yep I need to read this ASAP.
Books Unread from Last Month on this Month’s TBR:
Time to Vote!
So I’ve narrowed down three books that are currently sitting on my shelves that I’d like to read. I’ve listed them below with their blurbs. Poll is at the bottom.
“THE RULES OF WAR HAD BEEN CHANGED. QUEEN ELEANOR WANTED TO KNOW WHY.”
Eleanor, the young queen of Aemogen, is confronted with the greatest threat her country has ever faced: surrender Aemogen’s sovereignty to the treacherous Imirillion Empire or endure a devastating and impossible war. Now she must decide if she will forfeit her people’s liberty or fight.
When Wil Traveler, the disenchanted Imirillion soldier, wanders into her country, Eleanor takes the gamble of asking him to train her ill-prepared men for war, despite suspecting he may be a spy.
Battling questions of war and conquest, Eleanor fights to protect her people as Wil challenges her way of life, all the while keeping the secrets of his violent past a mystery.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.
Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.
Now, a sixteen year old Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic — the Red Church. Treachery and trials await her with the Church’s halls, and to fail is to die. But if she survives to initiation, Mia will be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the only thing she desires.
