To Be or Not to Be…Read TBR Pile Vote August 2018

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 of course share my thoughts on the book itself in my review post.

For a change up, I thought I’d put a few words in a basket, pull one out, and then pick a couple titles with that word in them.  Our key word is ‘NIGHT’.  Oh how delicious!  Here you go:

 

Candidate #1

Night Keepers by Jessica Andersen
#1 The Night Keepers
Paranormal Romance

Blurb:

The exciting debut of a new paranormal romance seriesAs a Miami narcotics detective, Leah Daniels never knows how her day will turn out. But she certainly never expected to be strapped to a stone altar, the human sacrifice in an ancient Mayan ritual meant to coax up a demon from the underworld. Or that she?d be saved by a handsome warrior-priest king who claims to recognize her from his visions…Jaguar Strike wishes he hadn’t made the mistake of reuniting his fellow warrior priests, or broken the law by saving their chosen human sacrifice. Now, he has no choice but to join forces with Leah and invoke dangerous magic in a death-defying race against the end of time.

Candidate #2

Shackled to the Night by Carly Fall
#1 Dark Forces
Paranormal Romance

Blurb:

Emily’s son vanished out of thin air, and she will do anything to get him back. That is how she finds herself in standing in the middle of a living room brandishing a gun. The house belongs to one of the local pedophiles, and she is desperately trying to scare information out of him on the whereabouts of her son.

When the front door busts in off its hinges, a large blonde man who calls himself Thaddeus takes control of the situation. He tells her that she is also looking for some missing children. What he doesn’t tell her is that he is of the Vampire Nation.

As the passion between them escalates while they search for Emily’s son and the missing children, Thaddeus quickly realizes their worlds are not going to just briefly intertwine, but collide with a force that could get them both killed. Will Emily be able to accept Thaddeus and his world, or will her life depend on how fast she can run away?

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.

Since Jessica Anderson is JR Ward’s writing partner, and she gave her such a great review I figured I couldn’t go wrong with my vote for Night Keepers. It looks like a good one! Hugs and Happy Saturday! RO

I did not know that. I like your reasoning, Ro. 🙂

I picked the Carly Fall one because I’ve read a series by her that I really liked. However, passion rising while she is looking for her son? That kinda bothers me. Wouldn’t that be all you have on your mind-finding him? Oh well, I think too much sometimes!

Sophia Rose
Guest

She’s new to me so I’m glad that you’ve already enjoyed her writing.

You don’t think too much. I’ve had similar thoughts when reading action plots (those who are running for their lives and stop for a quickie- eyeroll!). 🙂

Exactly!

I read the first book in the final prophecy series and really liked the world building, so I voted for that one.

Sophia Rose

Love seeing your endorsement for it, Renee. Both are new to me so I’m wide open to persuasion. 🙂

Sharonda
Guest

went with the first book 😉

Sophia Rose

Top of the pile sounds like a good method. Thanks, Sharonda!

Stephanie Jane

Don’t know anything about either of these two, so I went for the prettier coloured cover 🙂

Sophia Rose
Guest

Cover worship is a worthy way. LOL Thanks, Stephanie!

Oo I’d not heard of either of them.

Sophia Rose

Oldies from the pile. I’m hoping to like either since I have others by them. 🙂

I voted for Night Keeper as it sounded quite unique with the whole Mayan ritual thing the blurb mentions. I hadn’t heard of either of these before.

Sophia Rose
Guest

Yeah, the Mayan element definitely grabs the attention. 🙂

Melliane
Guest

oh difficult to say because they’re both new to me

Sophia Rose
Guest

Me, too! So I’m glad to have others pick. Hehe!

I really enjoyed the Nightkeepers series so this was a no-brainer 🙂

Sophia Rose

Oh hey… that’s great to get your endorsement.

I haven’t heard of either of these books but Nightkeepers looks really good!

Sophia Rose

Yeah, that blurb really pulls one in.

I voted for Shackled to the Night. I’m not a huge fan of the cover, but the premise sounds interesting.

It’s not bad for an indie cover, but yeah…
It definitely has a good premise. Thanks, Lauren!
