To Be or Not To Be…Read January TBR Pile Vote


Sophia's To Read or Not

First vote of the New Year! Woots, Yays, and Huzzahs! This reader’s choice vote has worked out really well for me over the last several months so it is definitely a Going Forward thing. I pondered what theme to give this vote for my February TBR Pile read and decided to go with a natural theme of the month…

Oh! You want to know what that is? Kissing, of course! Shari’s had authors scrambling to send us Great Pick Up Lines and those are so fun and romantic. Well we can’t do without that smoochy stuff either. So here’s you go, peeps! My Kissy Kandidates (see what I did there, huh? Clever, right?)

A Single Kiss by Grace Burrowes

First up, we have Grace Burrowes’ A Single Kiss CR and first book in her Sweetest Kisses series.

Here’s the link if you want to check it out:

After the Rain by Renee Carlino

And in the other corner as a not so obvious choice (kiss is on the cover) we’ve got, Renee Carlino’s After the Rain NA-CR.

Here’s the link:

Vote me a book to read, guys, and then let me know in the comments why you picked it. Whether your reason is researched out or just a whim, totally fine. I’m just nosey. As always, muah! I appreciate your help.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
  • I don’t know anything about either of these titles, Sophia! But, I’m going to vote all the same just because I can. LOL! I’m going to go with #2 because I like the cover more, and it looks like the chick is wearing a cowboy hat which is good enough for me. Ooh, and it fits the theme better I think.

    • Now that’s what I like to see, an intrepid voter. I love that second cover too. Ye haw!

  • Brittany Strickland

    I voted for After the Rain because it looked like the better book for February.

    • Hopefully it just gives a lovely story and not a rainy February. Haha! Thanks for voting, Brittany!

  • I went with After the Rain because I liked the cover and the name of the book better!

    • It is absolutely a lovely cover, Lorna. When I only found the one book with a kiss in the title on my pile, I started sorting covers and saw that one. Oo la la!

  • I started rearing A Single Kiss now, totally worth adding to your TBR.

    • Oh yay! I have book one and book two that the lovely Morgan from Sourcebooks sent me. 😉 She’s one of my besties b/c she keeps me supplied.

  • I love both but I had to vote for Burrowes since that is such a sweet and flirty cover.. I just love it. I am interested to see how she does with contemps, she writes fantastic historical’s.

    • Oh, I am with you there on the curiosity. I’ve read three of her HR series and loved them too.

  • LOL I love that you have a theme 😀 I went with book two. I don’t know why. I just…kinda like that one. 😀

    • Hey! Books that call out to us is a totally viable reason. It’s how I ended up with such a huge TBR pile in the first place. Haha!

  • I voted for Grace Burrowes. That seems like a book that would be a good read.

    • I’ve looked up the blurb on it and it definitely has strong potential. Thanks, Mary!
