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

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’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 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.

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. 😉
