Each month you will make a post with three books from your TBR List (these books can be already on your kindle or shelf or books you might want to purchase) and add your link on the linky that will be provided on my post. Your followers and the people on the linky will help you choose which book you will read next. The following Saturday you will announce the book that won. Then read the book and on the last Saturday of the month post a review. MY TBR List is hosted by Michelle (Because Reading) so be sure to stop by her post to link up and vote for everyone!

For 2021, my goal is to read 12 free/nearly free books that I’ve purchased over the years. And I’m letting y’all pick them by returning to My TBR List. I haven’t done this since 2017 and I’m excited to return.

My TBR List Choices: January 2021

This month’s choices are all books that fit the first #COYER read-a-thon: Read From a Friend’s Book List. It runs January 10 – 24 , which is perfect, since I’ll announce the winning book on the 9th! And maybe I’ll convince them to do a buddy read while we’re at it 😉

My first pick I found on several shelves – Anne, Lillian and Brandee, to name a few – and was so excited when I saw it because I’ve been planning to read this book for YEARS. And it’s on my nearly free shelf, meaning I paid money, just less than $2.

My TBR List Choices: January 2021These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner
Series: Starbound #1
Published by Disney Hyperion on December 10, 2013
Genres: Science Fiction, Young Adult
Pages: 384
Format: eBook

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.
Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.
Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?
Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

This second book was a pure cover love purchase – and Brandee has it on her TBR too. I’m expecting this one to get steamy.

My TBR List Choices: January 2021In Flight by R.K. Lilley
Published by R.K. Lilley on October 20, 2012
Genres: Erotica
Pages: 330
Format: eBook

When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.
Bianca is accustomed to dealing with supermodels and movie stars in her job as a first class flight attendant, but James Cavendish puts them all to shame in the looks department. If only it were just his looks that she found so irresistible about the intimidating man, Bianca could have ignored his attentions. But what tempts her like never before is the dominant pull he seems to have over her from the moment they meet, and the promise of pleasure, and pain, that she reads in his eyes.

The third book I saw on Anne’s TBR as well. I think I got this book as a recommendation from the Read Me Romance Podcast, after unexpectedly LOVING a similar book. So we’ll see.

My TBR List Choices: January 2021Prison Planet Barbarian by Ruby Dixon
on May 7, 2017
Genres: Science Fiction, Erotica
Pages: 135
Format: eBook

Being kidnapped by aliens is one thing.
Being kidnapped by aliens and then sent to a prison planet is something infinitely worse.
Here in Haven's prison system, I'm stranded among strangers, enemies, and the most ruthless criminals in the galaxy. There's no safety for a human woman here, especially not one branded as a murderer. I'm doomed to a fate worse than death. 
Then...he decides I should be his. His name's Jutari. He's seven feet tall, blue, and horned. He's an assassin and one of the most dangerous prisoners here. He's like no one I've ever met before...and he might be my only chance.
This story stands completely alone and is only marginally connected to the Ice Planet Barbarians or Corsairs series. You do not need to read those books in order to follow this one.

  1. So it’s not something I would probably read but heard good things about Ruby Dixon from Books Like Whoa (booktuber) and it has the smallest page count so helping you out…lol. 🙂

  2. I went with These Broken Stars since that’s one I have on my TBR shelf. You have to read it so I k ow if I need to movie it up! 😊 I hope you enjoy whichever wins! Wishing you a Happy New Year, Berls!
