My To-Be Read List ~ Lets Vote ~ October

Posted October 3, 2015 by Michelle in Uncategorized / 15 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 monthly MEME and you are more than welcome to join me. Just create a blog post with your three books and link the post below. Need the full rules? No problem you can find them all right HERE. Don’t forget to stop by the blogs on the linky below to help the other bloggers by voting on their next read!

I thought we can keep up with each list with the hashtag #MyTBRL so add that to the end of your post so if you can’t get to the linky we can still find you ๐Ÿ™‚

So after last month’s reading slump and not being able to finish the book I was very undecided when it came to this month’s My TBR. Usually a little Middle Grade gets me in the mood so this month is going to be all about the Middle Grade books ๐Ÿ™‚

So this month I picked

Of Giants and Ice (The Ever Afters #1)
by Shelby Bach, Cory Loftis
Paperback, 346 pages
Published May 7th 2013 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Goodreads

Rory Landon has spent her whole life being known as the daughter of a famous movie star mom and director dad. So when she begins a new after-school program and no one knows who her family is, Rory realizes something is different. After she ends up fighting a fire-breathing dragon on her first day, she realizes the situation is more unusual than she could have imagined. It turns out the only fame that matters at Ever After School is the kind of fame earned from stories Rory thought were fictional. But as Rory soon learns, fairy tales are very realโ€”and she is destined to star in one of her own.

This first installment of The Ever Afters series reimagines classic fairy tale characters in a modern context, merging familiar fantasy with the everyday realities of middle-grade existence.

It is the near future, and the earth has entered a new ice age. Eleanor Perry lives in Tucson, one of the most popular destinations for refugees of the Freeze. She is the daughter of a climatologist who is trying to find new ways to preserve human life on the planet. Dr. Perry believes that a series of oil deposits she has found in the Arctic may hold the key to our survival. That’s when she disappearsโ€”but not before sending Eleanor a series of cryptic messages that point to a significant and mysterious discovery. Now it’s up to Eleanor to go find her.

This search will launch Eleanor on a breathless race to unlock the mysteries of what has happened to our planet, solving the riddle of the cold that could be humanity’s endโ€”and uncovering a threat to the earth that may not be of this world.

A Curious Tale of the In-Between (Pram #1)
by Lauren DeStefano
Hardcover, 240 pages
Published September 1st 2015 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Goodreads

Pram Bellamy is special–she can talk to ghosts. She doesn’t have too many friends amongst the living, but that’s all right. She has her books, she has her aunts, and she has her best friend, the ghostly Felix.

Then Pram meets Clarence, a boy from school who has also lost a parent and is looking for answers. Together they arrive at the door of the mysterious Lady Savant, who promises to help. But this spiritualist knows the true nature of Pram’s power, and what she has planned is more terrifying than any ghost.

New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano is beloved by critics and readers alike, and her middle grade debut is lyrical, evocative and not to be missed.

  1. I voted for Of Giants and Ice. I like the cover and it sounded really interesting. I am skipping this month, since I just finished last month’s pick Friday. I hope to rejoin you in November!

  2. A MG is always pretty good for breaking out of a slump. Hopefully this works for you. I had a hard time picking between #1 and #3 but since it’s October I had to go with the ghosts!

  3. That was a tough vote, I like the sound of all of them! I picked the Curious Tale of the In-Between though, because I’m on a ghost kick, and it is October! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. I read the first synopsis and thought “yes”. Then I read the second and thought “Oh, but…” And then I read the third. Geez, Michelle. Way to make it ‘easy’ on us. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I ended up going with A Curious Tale of the In-Between. But honestly, they all sound good. I hope you enjoy whichever one is chosen…and it helps you with your slump! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. All three of these sound really good! I voted for the Artic Code as I really like the sound of the pot with the new ice age and the mystery. And I like the cover. I hope you’ll enjoy whichever book get’s chosen!
