My To-Be Read List ~ Lets Vote ~ July

Posted July 5, 2014 by Michelle in My TBR List / 12 Comments


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. 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. My personal TBR list has so many books I am dying to read that I just don’t know when I will ever really read them. So I had this great idea, each month I will randomly (using pick 3 books from my To-Be Read List on Goodreads to showcase to you but that’s not all  instead of just showcasing them why not have you vote on which book you think I should read and then at the end of the month I will review the book and  in the same post why not give one of the three books picked away (in ebook format). This will help me not only share some awesome books with you but also help me read some books that are on my TBR list. (Need more details? No problem click HERE for the rules)

This week I figured with COYER in full swing (what you don’t know COYER check out the details HERE) why not pick 3 books that have been on My TBR list and in My Kindle for a very long time now. These are 3 Amazon Freebies that I downloaded and added to My List. (not sure if they are free now) So I figured why not help me Clean out MY E-Reader….

So this month I picked

The Bagman (The Abigail Cobble Trilogy #1)
by Rachael Rippon

Kindle Edition, 312 pages
Published June 25th 2013 by Kindle

In the midst of the Second World War, Abigail is deposited at St Winifred’s Orphanage for Willful, Wayward and Wicked Children. As soon as she arrives, Abigail is warned of the Bagman and what will happen if she misbehaves. But Abigail is too busy trying to escape to listen. Her estranged twin, Tabitha, is close by and Abigail has to find her before their 16th birthdays. Besides, she doesn’t believe in the Bagman.

He believes in her though. Appearing when she least expects it; he asks her to play his Game. He will give her seven wishes to be used in seven days. But the Game is not as easy as Abigail supposes, and the wishes not as nice…

Soon, Abigail is getting exactly what she wished for. And the effects are catastrophic.
If you loved ‘Coraline’ or ‘Alice in Wonderland’, then you’re sure to love ‘The Bagman’

18910286 Insanity
by Cameron Jace (Goodreads Author)

Paperback, 254 pages
Published December 19th 2013 by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
After accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder is now a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. No one doubts her insanity. Only a hookah-smoking professor believes otherwise; that he can prove her sanity by decoding Lewis Carroll’s paintings, photographs, and find Wonderland’s real whereabouts. Professor Caterpillar persuades the asylum that Alice can save lives and catch the wonderland monsters now reincarnated in modern day criminals. In order to do so, Alice leads a double life: an Oxford university student by day, a mad girl in an asylum by night.

The line between sanity and insanity thins when she meets Jack Diamond, an arrogant college student who believes that nonsense is an actual science.


Chasing the Star Garden (The Airship Racing Chronicles #1)
by Melanie Karsak (Goodreads Author)

Paperback, 325 pages
Published December 4th 2013 by Clockpunk Press (first published November 14th 2013)

An opium-addicted beauty.
An infamous poet living in self-imposed exile.
An ancient treasure about to fall into the wrong hands.

Melanie Karsak’s Chasing the Star Garden takes readers on a thrilling adventure from the gritty opium dens of gaslamp London to the gem-colored waters of the ancient world. Lily Stargazer, a loveable but reckless airship racer with a famous lover and shattered past, reluctantly plunges into a centuries-old mystery in a romantic adventure best described as Dan Brown meets Mary Shelley.

It all begins on one of the worst days of Lily’s life. She just lost the London leg of the 1823 Airship Grand Prix. To top it off, a harlequin fleeing from constables shoved a kaleidoscope down her pants, told her to fly to Venice, then threw himself from her airship tower. What’s a girl to do? For Lily, the answer is easy: drink absinthe and smoke opium.

Lily’s lover, Lord Byron, encourages her to make the trip to Venice. Lily soon finds herself at the heart of an ancient mystery which has her running from her past and chasing true love and the stars along the way.

*Due to steamy scenes and depictions of drug use, this novel is intended for mature readers.
