#MyTBRL Choices and Linky: January 2023

Posted January 7, 2023 by Berls in My TBR List / 4 Comments

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. 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 now co-hosted by Michelle and Berls (Because Reading) so be sure to link up your post below and vote for others on the linky too!

For 2023, Michelle and I will buddy reading for My TBR List. But since we are both painfully slow readers these days, the book you pick this month we will review on the last Saturday of next month.  So the book you picked last month we will be reviewing the last Saturday of this month.

My TBR List Choices: January 2023

#MyTBRL Choices and Linky: January 2023The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
Published by Sourcebooks Landmark on May 7, 2019
Pages: 458

"Pop your favorite Agatha Christie whodunnit into a blender with a scoop of Downton Abbey, a dash of Quantum Leap, and a liberal sprinkling of Groundhog Day and you'll get this unique murder mystery." ―Harper's Bazaar
Aiden Bishop knows the rules. Evelyn Hardcastle will die every day until he can identify her killer and break the cycle. But every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes up in the body of a different guest at Blackheath Manor. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others. With a locked-room mystery that Agatha Christie would envy, Stuart Turton unfurls a breakneck novel of intrigue and suspense.
International bestselling author Stuart Turton delivers inventive twists in a thriller of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page.

#MyTBRL Choices and Linky: January 2023Gallant by V.E. Schwab, Victoria Schwab, Manuel Sumberac
Published by Greenwillow Books on March 1, 2022
Pages: 334

Everything casts a shadow. Even the world we live in. And as with every shadow, there is a place where it must touch. A seam, where the shadow meets its source.
Olivia Prior has grown up in Merilance School for girls, and all she has of her past is her mother’s journal—which seems to unravel into madness. Then, a letter invites Olivia to come home—to Gallant. Yet when Olivia arrives, no one is expecting her. But Olivia is not about to leave the first place that feels like home, it doesn’t matter if her cousin Matthew is hostile or if she sees half-formed ghouls haunting the hallways.
Olivia knows that Gallant is hiding secrets, and she is determined to uncover them. When she crosses a ruined wall at just the right moment, Olivia finds herself in a place that is Gallant—but not. The manor is crumbling, the ghouls are solid, and a mysterious figure rules over all. Now Olivia sees what has unraveled generations of her family, and where her father may have come from.
Olivia has always wanted to belong somewhere, but will she take her place as a Prior, protecting our world against the Master of the House? Or will she take her place beside him?

#MyTBRL Choices and Linky: January 2023Ledge (The Glacian Trilogy, #1) by Stacey McEwan
Published by Angry Robot on September 13, 2022
Pages: 271

After being randomly selected as a human sacrifice, instead of death, Dawsyn finds herself on a quest to save her people from their icy prison...---
In a place known as the Ledge, a civilization is trapped by a vast chasm and sheer mountain face. There is no way for anyone to escape the frozen wasteland without befalling a deathly drop. They know nothing of the outside world except that it is where the Glacians reside – mystical and vicious winged creatures who bring meagre rations in exchange for a periodic human sacrifice.
Dawsyn, ax wielder and only remaining member of her family, has so far avoided the annual culling, but her luck has run out. She is chosen and ripped from her icy home, the only world she knows. No one knows what will happen to her on the other side, least of all Dawsyn. Murdered? Enslaved? Worse?
Fortunately, a half-Glacian called Ryon offers to help them both escape, but how can she trust one of the very creatures that plagued her life? Dawsyn is a survivor, and she is not afraid to cut anyone down to live.
With a slow-burning romance, high stakes and even higher rewards, this richly created new fantasy series by popular TikToker Stacey McEwan will keep you gripped to the very end.

  1. I’m glad to hear things are going well at work. You’ll do well demoing the Kitchen App, I’m sure. And I’m glad Dante is doing so well, too!

    Divvying up your weekly tasks throughout the weekdays sounds like a great plan. I should do that for basic housecleaning chores (which I hate doing, and always end up putting off.)
