My TBR List | September 2014 Voting

September 6, 2014 My TBR List 28

My TBR List

My TBR List is a meme hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading where we get some help picking out what to read next. We sit for hours looking through our TBR lists wondering when we will ever get to that one book we were dying to read when we added it 3 months ago or maybe even a year. So each month we pick 3 books from our TBRs and let everyone else vote on which one to read. We announce the book the second week and by the end of the month, we review it!

I am so excited that Michelle decided to make this a meme, because I need some help getting to all these books! If this is the first you’re hearing about My TBR List, don’t feel bad – it’s the first month it’s a meme! It’s not too late to join in, either. Just make a post and open up voting πŸ™‚ And of course, go link up at Because Reading!

September 2014 Voting

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.

  1. River Road - Audible BOGORiver 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.

  2. SkinwalkerSkinwalker 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…

  3. markedMarked 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.

    I went with Nora, I enjoyed River Road, it was a quick read. I use my calendar for books I read each month (arcs) and then randomly reach from my tbr pile, but now that pubs are sending me audios it is getting a bit crazy. Some of the books I read in July/August aren’t even scheduled to appear on my blog till November!! *most are my own reads* I am going to cut back on accepting books* Well, who am I kidding ..if they look good I won’t. At least I have books for back-up if I get ill.

      I’m starting to fall into that problem too Kimba – I’m reading books right now that probably won’t get reviewed on my blog until December (I’m working on updating my calendar because of this blog break I’m taking so I’m not 100% sure). I can’t keep up with more than 3 or 4 reviews a week, but I’m reading at a much faster pace than that πŸ™‚ River Road didn’t win, but it’s still at the top of my list!

    I have read Skinwalker a long time ago and I remember really enjoying it, buying the next two books and now a few years later I still haven’t read them. So that’s why I voted for Skinnwalker.
    I also have read marked, but while I really enjoyed the first few books in the series it went a bit downards later on ans I never finished the series.
    I think it’s awesome Michelle decided to make this a meme!
