MTBRLWe 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. As our piles get bigger we realize there is just not enough time in a day to read all the books that we wanted to read. So I had a great idea, pick 3 books from my TBR Pile and have you all pick which one I should read next. This is a month MEME and you are more than welcome to join be my posting your voting post in the linky below. Need the rules? No problem you can find them all right HERE. Don’t forget to stop by the blogs on the linky below to help them vote on there next read!

So this month I picked

21996359 Fairy Tale Reform School: Flunked
by Jen Calonita

Hardcover, 256 pages
Expected publication: March 3rd 2015 by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky

Would you send a villain to do a hero’s job? An exciting new twisted fairy tale series from award-winning author Jen Calonita.

Full of regret, Cinderella’s wicked stepmother, Flora, has founded the Fairy Tale Reform School with the mission of turning the wicked and criminally mischievous into upstanding members of Enchantasia.

Impish, sassy 12-year-old Gilly has a history of petty theft and she’s not too sorry about it. When she lifts a hair clip, she gets tossed in reform school-for at least three months. But when she meets fellow students Jax and Kayla, she learns there’s more to this school than its sweet mission. There’s a battle brewing and she starts to wonder: can a villian really change?


 

13608989The Iron Trial (Magisterium #1)
by Holly Black, Cassandra Clare

Trade Paperback, 295 pages
Published September 9th 2014 by Doubleday Children’s Books (first published 2014)

Most kids would do anything to pass the Iron Trial.

Not Callum Hunt. He wants to fail.

All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him.

So he tries his best to do his worst – and fails at failing.

Now the Magisterium awaits him. It’s a place that’s both sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future.

The Iron Trial is just the beginning, for the biggest test is still to come . . .


 

17560444Arrow of the Mist (Arrow of the Mist #1)
by Christina Mercer

Kindle Edition, 257 pages
Published March 21st 2013 (first published March 6th 2013)

Award-Winning Middle Grade Fantasy; YA Fantasy
Terror strikes the Celtic inspired kingdom of Nemetona when barbed roots breach the veil of a forbidden land and poison woodsmen, including 15-year-old Lia’s beloved father. Lia and three others embark on a quest to the forbidden land of Brume to gather ingredients for the cure. But after her elder kinsman is attacked and poisoned, she and her cousin, Wynn, are forced to finish the quest on their own.

Lia relies on her powerful herbal wisdom and the memorized pages of her late grandmother’s Grimoire for guidance through a land of soul-hungry shades, trickster creatures, and uncovered truths about the origin of Brume and her family’s unexpected ties to it. The deeper they trek into the land, the stronger Lia’s untapped gift as a tree mage unfolds. When she discovers the enchanted root’s maker, it forces her to question everything about who she is and what is her destiny. Ultimately she must make a terrible choice: keep fighting to save her father and the people of the lands or join with the power behind the deadly roots to help nature start anew.

  1. They all sound good, Michelle – I’m sure you’ll enjoy whichever one is chosen. 🙂 I voted for Flunked though. It sounds fun!

    I had to skip this month’s My TBR List because I didn’t think I could add one more book to my schedule. 🙁 I’ll be back at it next month though. I hope you’re having a great week!

  2. They all look good but I have read The Iron Trails and I really liked it so I curious to see if you will like it too. 🙂

      • I did see how it had HP similarities but I thought it was different enough that it didn’t bother me..some people just seen a kid, magic and boom HP remake..and don’t give it a chance. The ending totally rocked..I was like..what! LOL 🙂

        • I agree! I loved it because of the similarities, but the ending was totally unexpected. I can’t wait until September and hopefully they will actually do eARCs of the next one and we will not have to wait that long.

    • So glad you are joining 🙂 I will stop by to vote on your book later today! Thanks for voting, I have heard mixed reviews about this book but I’m looking forward to reading it if it wins

  3. I voted for Flunked as it sounds original and fun. And I didn’t hear of it before. I have read Arrow of the Mist, so I am also curious what you would think of that one. It was a 3 star read for me, but still enjoyable. I have heard of the Iron Trail and read a few reviews of it.
