Alright, so I’m not being ENTIRElY random with my choices here – I’ve just started the Goodreads Seasonal Reading Challenge and I own a few books that could work for a challenge item. So I figured this would be the perfect place to help with my decision. So 1 – I’m choosing from books I already own. I mean, I own 500 books that I haven’t read, so why add to it, right? and 2- I narrowed that list down based on the SRC challenge.
My Three Choices
These are all audio book versions, just FYI.
- River Road by Jayne Ann Krentz
Narrated by Amanda Leigh Cobb
It’s been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she’d been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild party – by the guy she had a crush on, just to make it more embarrassing.
Obviously Mason Fletcher – only a few years older but somehow a lot more of a grown-up – was the overprotective type who thought he had to come to her rescue. Now, returning after her aunt’ s fatal car accident, Lucy is learning there was more to the story than she realized at the time. Mason had saved her from a very nasty crime that night – and soon afterward, Tristan, the cold-blooded rich kid who’d targeted her, disappeared mysteriously, his body never found.
A lot has changed in thirteen years. Lucy now works for a private investigation firm as a forensic genealogist, while Mason has quit the police force to run a successful security firm with his brother – though he still knows his way around a wrench when he fills in at his uncle’ s local hardware store. Even Summer River has changed, from a sleepy farm town into a trendy upscale spot in California’ s wine country.
But Mason is still a protector at heart, a serious (and seriously attractive) man. And when he and Lucy make a shocking discovery inside Sara’ s house, and some of Tristan’ s old friends start acting suspicious, Mason’ s quietly fierce instincts kick into gear. He saved Lucy once, and he’ ll save her again. But this time, she insists on playing a role in her own rescue.
- Skinwalker by Faith Hunter
Narrated by Khristine Hvam
Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she’s been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps…
- Marked by P.C. Cast, Kristen Cast
Narrated by Edwina Wren
The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird’s world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire–that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It’s tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school’s most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny–with a little help from her new vampyre friends.
