My To-Be Read List ~ Lets Vote ~ July

Posted July 2, 2016 by Michelle in My TBR List / 30 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 🙂


I am feeling like I need to give more shelf love so this month once again I am going to the shelf to see what I want to read and letting you all pick it for me. 🙂

So this month I picked


The Diabolic
by S.J. Kincaid
416 pages
Expected publication: November 1st 2016 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers


Red Queen meets The Hunger Games in this epic novel about what happens when the galaxy’s most deadly weapon masquerades as a senator’s daughter and a hostage of the galactic court.

A Diabolic is ruthless. A Diabolic is powerful. A Diabolic has a single task: Kill in order to protect the person you’ve been created for.

Nemesis is a Diabolic, a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senator’s daughter, Sidonia. The two have grown up side by side, but are in no way sisters. Nemesis is expected to give her life for Sidonia, and she would do so gladly. She would also take as many lives as necessary to keep Sidonia safe.

When the power-mad Emperor learns Sidonia’s father is participating in a rebellion, he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court. She is to serve as a hostage. Now, there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia. She must become her. Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia—a killing machine masquerading in a world of corrupt politicians and two-faced senators’ children. It’s a nest of vipers with threats on every side, but Nemesis must keep her true abilities a secret or risk everything.

As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns there is something more to her than just deadly force. She finds a humanity truer than what she encounters from most humans. Amidst all the danger, action, and intrigue, her humanity just might be the thing that saves her life—and the empire.


The Neverland Wars
by Audrey Greathouse
302 pages
Published May 9th 2016 by Clean Teen Publishing (first published 2016)


Magic can do a lot—give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That’s what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn’t know this. She’s just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn’t know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though—and when she does, she’ll discover she’s in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She’ll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won’t be the only one. Peter Pan’s constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she’s going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she’s going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.


by Philip Reeve
333 pages
Published April 1st 2016 by Switch Press (first published October 1st 2015)


The Great Network is an ancient web of routes and gates, where sentient trains can take you anywhere in the galaxy in the blink of an eye.

But the Network is also a hazardous mess of twists and turns, and nothing is as it seems. So when petty thief and railhead Zen Starling is hired by the mysterious Raven, the job appears simple enough. Steal one small box from the Emperor’s train, live the rest of his days in luxury. Secrets and danger lie in wait on the rails, and that little box might just bring everything in this galaxy—and the next—to the end of the line.

  1. The Diabolic looks interesting! It occured to me I could still vote even if I wasn’t holding my own this time! Hopefully I can rejoin you all next month, I was just feeling a little over extended on what I needed to read! I just last night finished my May book! I guess I could post that one with the July reviews! lol! I’m pretty sure I ended up skipping the March one too. I’m a loser!

  2. About an hour before my post was to go up with my poll, I suddenly changed my mind and thought I should read a cozy mystery this month instead,–but then realized how much work it would be to redo my post and so will save that for next month. 🙂

    All of these sound really good, Michelle. I ended up voting by cover, which I know is not what we’re supposed to do . . . I look forward to seeing which one wins!

    Did you notice the awesome blog button I’m using? 😉 It’s perfect! Thanks so much for designing it for me!

  3. I voted for Neverland Wars because I don’t think you can go wrong with Peter Pan. My make me read it readathon is my replacement for this meme this month. I don’t know if that is something you would be okay with me putting in the linky for people to vote on.
