To Be Read List ~ November Poll

This TBR Poll meme is hosted by Because Reading is Better Than Real Life.

Here's How it Works:

On the first Saturday of each month, I will post three books from my TBR List. You all will help me choose which book I will read next, through the poll listed. On the second Saturday of the month I will announce the book that won. Then, I'll read the book and on the last Saturday of the month I'll post a review.

So, in October, my poll had a TIE and I decided to read and review BOTH books, Running on Empty by Christy Reece and The Shepherd by Ethan Cross. They were both great, 4 star reads. I'm a huge Reece fan, I've read everything she's ever written, and I highly recommend her for romantic suspense fans. The Cross one was different, and definitely kept my attention. I look forward to trying the next in the series.

Now we're on to November, and I selected 3 very different books for you all to choose from. One is a suspense, one is time travel and the final one is Middle Grade/YA fantasy. I look forward to seeing what you all pick for me to read. On with the books.

The Books:

The Blurb:

Christmas is coming. One body at a time.

Three weeks before Christmas: Sunday, one a.m. A woman is drowned in her bathtub.

One week later: Sunday, one a.m. A woman is beaten savagely to death, every bone in her body broken.

Another week brings another victim.

As panic spreads across London, DCI Antonia Hawkins, leading her first murder investigation, must stop a cold, careful killer whose twisted motives can only be guessed at, before the next body is found. On Sunday.

When the clock strikes one . . .

The Blurb:

When Brian and Gregory receive an invitation to stay at a distant relative's strange manse . . . well, they should know better than to go, but since this is a middle-grade adventure novel, they go anyway. Why not? Once there, they stumble upon The Game of Sunken Places, a board game that mirrors a greater game for which they have suddenly became players. Soon the boys are dealing with attitudinal trolls, warring kingdoms, and some very starchy britches. Luckily, they have wit, deadpan observation, and a keen sense of adventure on their side.

Voting closes on 10/7 at 11:59pm EST.


  1. Time travel and fantasy generally aren't my thing, so I went with The Advent Killer.

  2. I am a christmas crazy person so tis the season for some good christmas books :)

  3. The Advent Killer sounds really creepy! I got chills just reading that blurb. I voted for Butterman Time Travel Inc, I've seen the book around a few times and I like the concept even though I am not a fan of time travel in general.

  4. Even though the Advent Killer sounds really good and is Christmas Themed (in a creepy way) I'm a sucker for time travel, so I had to go with Butterfat Time Travel Inc. Excited to see what wins!

  5. I love Christmas books and suspense so I had to go with the first one. :)

  6. I think The Advent Killer sound creepy-good and it's perfectly time. :) I hope you enjoy whichever book wins.
