To Be or Not to Be…Read TBR Pile Vote October

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.

Rah, rah, siss boom, bah!  Sports is where it’s at this month.  What’s your pleasure?  Swimming or Football?

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.
  • Heh… How to choose, how to choose?? Those covers are mouth-watering, Shari! I went with the second one, though, because there just seems to be more action in football than in swimming. I’d be happy to be proven wrong, though 😉

    • That’s a great reason to pick one. We shall have to see which story gets more action. 😉

  • Kitt Crescendo

    Oh, this would be an easy call for me. Love me some football.

    • This is great, Kitt! And ’tis the season for the grid iron sport. 🙂 Thanks for you vote!

  • I went with Stroked as that’s the first book in a series and I feel like I’ve seen more books about football than swimming, so I was more curious about the swimming one. Hope you enjoy whichever one wins!

    • Yes, I hadn’t read any books on swimming as a sport either so that was why I grabbed this one a while back. I’m sure I’d enjoy either book. 🙂

  • Normally I would pick the football one because I’m such a football fan, but I haven’t seen too many books that have swimmers…and that guy on the cover! <3 lol!

    • Yeah! I whistled appreciatively when I got a look at that cover. 🙂 Thanks, Julie!

  • Swimming, swimming, swimming…just because there are fewer swimmer romances out there.

    • There really are and that was why I added this one to my shelf (and then let it sit, LOL).

  • Oh no! I just tied it up. lol Yum on the covers. I’ve read Risky Game and had fun with it 😀

    • Haha, that’s okay. There was one tie before and I found the time to read both. I really don’t think that would be a hardship in this case, either. 😉

  • Ahhh! This is hard. I love sports romances… and both of those sports. *bites nails* I’ll go with… that one! *is mysterious* 😀

    Happy reading!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    • Did you just do eeny, meeny? LOL! I know, I was being brutal making people pick this one. Thanks, Alyssa!

  • oh man it’s been a long long while since I read a sport romance! enjoy 🙂

    • I don’t read them too often, but they are fun. Thanks, Lily!
