To Be or Not to Be…Read TBR Pile Vote August 2017

Sophia's To Read or Not

Each month, I will post up a pair (or more) of books.  I would like you to vote on a choice.  Yes!  You will have the job of telling me what to read from my pile each month.  I welcome your vote no matter what reason you choose (frivolous, serious or otherwise) that particular book and do share your reason in the comments just because I’m nosy.  I will update everyone at the end of the month in my reading update and will of course share my thoughts on the book itself in my review.

Going for the mechanisms and gears with Steampunk as my theme this month.  Both are new to me authors so I’m eager to try either of the books.

Candidate #1

Steel Lily by Megan Curd
#1 Periodic

Candidate #2

#1 The Iron Seas

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

I am currently listening to The Iron Duke…need to get back to it. I think I am only half way but for some reason I haven’t been in the audiobook mood lately. But I think you would really enjoy it.

What a coincidence. LOL Well, hopefully, you’ll be able to return to it as the mood comes back (I know how that works). But good that you think I’ll enjoy it, Renee.

The Iron Duke was a lot of fun!

Super news, Karen! I think most steampunk is fun even with more serious thematic elements just for the gadgets, but a lighter fun element is always welcome, too.

I haven’t read either one but I voted for Steel Lily.

They both had some appeal to me just for the genre so I think either way it will be good. Thanks so much for tossing in your vote, Mary. 🙂

I actually haven’t heard of either of these so I went by cover alone. haha!! I chose Steel Lily. I hope you end up enjoying whichever one you choose!

Cover appeal works for me, Julie! 🙂 Thank you!

I voted for Steel Lily as I like that cover the best from these two. Both they both look good and I like how the steampunk genre is obvious from the cover. I hope you’ll enjoy whichever one wins!

Sophia Rose

If done right, a cover can set the tone for the story inside so I’m all for that method of choice, Lola. They both have good ratings so I should be safe, either way. 🙂

I voted for The Iron Duke because I am pretty sure that one in on my TBR list.

And I’ll be happy to be your guinea pig, Carole! Buahaha!

Iron Duke due to the quote from Nalini Singh on the cover

Sophia Rose

Now say… that’s a good way of picking. I do that too when I spot an author I love as the cover quoter.

Candy @ So little time...

Both sound good to me, but for some reason, I’m leaning toward Steel Lily. I hope you enjoy whichever you read!

Sophia Rose

Go with your gut, right, Candy? Thanks so much for your vote!

I don’t know about the first one but I have the second to read so I would be curious for you to review it

Sophia Rose

Sounds good! I’ll test drive it for you if it wins, Melliane. 🙂

It does sound pretty good in the blurb. Thanks, Geybie!
