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

I pulled out a couple of historicals for this month. Both have non-English settings which I thought would be fun.

Choice One:

Dreams of Lilacs by Lynn Kurland

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.
  • oh I would definitely go with Lynn Kurland. She is a wonderful author.

    • I’ve seen her books on your favorites lists so I have no doubt of that. This was the only book I had of hers already on my pile.

  • I voted!

  • I voted for Island of a Thousand Springs as I liked the title and cover. It sounds like a good one with the whole star crossed lovers thing and it sounds like the book has some fun settings.

    • Yes, the author is German and living in New Zealand, but she wrote about Caribbean historical romance. I thought that was intriguing.

  • Lynn Kurland .. hands down!!!

    • She’s pretty good? I haven’t read her yet, but Renee swears by her stuff, too. Thanks, Nelle!

  • oh both looks interesting

    • Haha! And see, that is exactly why I started this voting thing. I have trouble deciding.

  • Oh they both look nice. The one I picked…it struggles. Poor unvoted for book lol Hope you enjoy the winner.

    • Ah, yes, I love cheering on the underdog, too.

  • I liked the idea of a shipwrecked girl with amnesia and the mystery so I picked the lilac one 🙂

    • That is an intriguing blurb. I honestly can’t remember why I grabbed it, but pretty sure that played a factor. 😉
