We 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 đ
It’s all about middle grade this month. I feel like I haven’t read a good one in quite some time so I am hoping these babies that I have on my shelf will be just what I need. I am excited for all of them and can’t wait to see which one wins!
So this month I picked

Izzyâs family has just moved to the most boring town in the country. But as time goes on, strange things start to happen; odd piles of stones appear around Izzyâs house, and her little sister Hen comes home full of stories about the witch next door.
Then, Hen disappears into the woods. Sheâs been whisked away to the land of Faerie, and itâs up to Izzy to save her. Joined there by a band of outlaw Changelings, Izzy and her new friends set out on a joint search-and-rescue mission across this foreign land which is at turns alluringly magical and utterly terrifying.
The Great Shelby Holmes
by Elizabeth Eulberg
Expected publication: September 6th 2016 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Meet spunky sleuth Shelby and her sports-loving sidekick Watson as they take on a dog-napper in this fresh twist on Sherlock Holmes.
Shelby Holmes is not your average sixth grader. Sheâs nine years old, barely four feet tall, and the best detective her Harlem neighborhood has ever seenâalways using logic and a bit of pluck (which yes, some might call âbossinessâ) to solve the toughest crimes.
When eleven-year-old John Watson moves downstairs, Shelby finds something thatâs eluded her up till now: a friend. Easy-going John isnât sure of what to make of Shelby, but he soon finds himself her most-trusted (read: only) partner in a dog-napping case that’ll take both their talents to crack.
Sherlock Holmes gets a fun, sweet twist with two irresistible young heroes and black & white illustrations throughout in this middle grade debut from internationally bestselling YA author Elizabeth Eulberg.
Addison Cooke and the Treasure of the Incas
by Jonathan W. Stokes
Expected publication: October 11th 2016 by Philomel Books
Smooth-talking, refined twelve-year-old Addison Cooke loves a grand adventure, especially one that involves using his vast knowledge of history and archaeology, learned from his aunt and uncle, both world-famous researchers. If that adventure includes an expertly-knotted Windsor tie and an Arnold Palmer on the rocks, all the better.
Luckily for Addison, adventure has a way of finding the Cookes. After Addison’s uncle unearths the first ancient Incan clue needed to find a vast trove of lost treasure, he is kidnapped by members of a shadowy organization intent on stealing the riches. An expert in Incan history, Addison’s uncle is the bandits’ key to deciphering the ancient clues and looting the treasure. . . unless Addison and his friends can outsmart the kidnappers and decipher the clues first. So it’s off to Peru (business class, no less), across the Amazon, and all the way to Machu Picchu in a race for riches and history.
