Posted April 4, 2015 by Michelle in My TBR List / 23 Comments

MyTBRListWe 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 me. Use 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

I’m having a hard time picking what my next 2015 Reading Assignment book should be so I figured I would let you all pick 🙂

18806259Storm Siren (The Storm Siren Trilogy #1)
by Mary Weber

Hardcover, 320 pages
Published August 19th 2014 by Thomas Nelson / HarperCollins


“I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don’t want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you.”

In a world at war, a slave girl’s lethal curse could become one kingdom’s weapon of salvation. If the curse—and the girl—can be controlled.

As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth — meaning, she shouldn’t even exist.

Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war, or be killed.

Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the handsome trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.

But what if she doesn’t want to be the weapon they’ve all been waiting for?

Set in a beautifully eclectic world of suspicion, super abilities, and monsters, Storm Siren is a story of power. And whoever controls that power will win.

by Kelsey Macke
Paperback, 321 pages
Published October 14th 2014 by Spencer Hill Contemporary (first published 2014)


Hot girls get the fairy tales. No one cares about the stepsisters’ story. Those girls don’t get a sweet little ending; they get a lifetime of longing

Imogen Keegen has never had a happily ever after–in fact, she doesn’t think they are possible. Ever since her mother’s death seven years ago, Imogen has pulled herself in and out of therapy, struggled with an “emotionally disturbed” special ed. label, and loathed her perma-plus-sized status.

When Imogen’s new stepsister, the evil and gorgeous Ella Cinder, moves in down the hall, Imogen begins losing grip on the pieces she’s been trying to hold together. The only things that gave her solace–the theatre, cheese fries, and her best friend, Grant–aren’t enough to save her from her pain this time.

While Imogen is enjoying her moment in the spotlight after the high school musical, the journal pages containing her darkest thoughts get put on display. Now, Imogen must resign herself to be crushed under the ever-increasing weight of her pain, or finally accept the starring role in her own life story.

And maybe even find herself a happily ever after.

Enhance the experience with the companion soundtrack, Imogen Unlocked, by the author’s band, Wedding Day Rain.


Behind the Scenes (Daylight Falls #1)
by Dahlia Adler

Paperback, 328 pages
Published June 24th 2014 by Spencer Hill Press


High school senior Ally Duncan’s best friend may be the Vanessa Park – star of TV’s hottest new teen drama – but Ally’s not interested in following in her BFF’s Hollywood footsteps. In fact, the only thing Ally’s ever really wanted is to go to Columbia and study abroad in Paris. But when her father’s mounting medical bills threaten to stop her dream in its tracks, Ally nabs a position as Van’s on-set assistant to get the cash she needs.

Spending the extra time with Van turns out to be fun, and getting to know her sexy co-star Liam is an added bonus. But when the actors’ publicist arranges for Van and Liam to “date” for the tabloids just after he and Ally share their first kiss, Ally will have to decide exactly what role she’s capable of playing in their world of make believe. If she can’t play by Hollywood’s rules, she may lose her best friend, her dream future, and her first shot at love.

  1. I really like the idea of a reverse Cinderella story. Sounds completely unique for a fairy tale retelling – at least it does for me!

  2. I have a paperback for storm siren but the other two I have on my kindle and signed books, I don’t like to read books that are signed so I am happy to have them on my kindle (I found them for 99cents yay) I will be getting to them this year regardless but Distressed Damsel sounds fun too because it’s a retelling. Maybe I’ll go in order of the voting so next month I’ll read whoever got the second most votes 🙂

  3. First – I love the new graphic! Now, for the books…you’re really good at making it hard to decide, Michelle! I ended up voting for Storm Siren because I have it on my kindle so I’m eager for your thoughts on it. BUT I will be happy if either of the other books win as well because I want to read them too!! Distressed Damsel was already on my tbr list but Behind the Scenes is going on it now. 🙂

  4. I haven’t heard of either of these books, so I voted for Damsel Distressed as I like the cover and it sounds like a fun twist on the traditional fairy tale stories. I was thinking of including only reading assignment books this month as well, but went with books in series I started already, although one of those is on my list for my reading assignment.
