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

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.

This month, I’m in the mood to cozy up with something with a bit of mystery to it.  As crisp fall nights descend earlier and the leaves rustle in the trees, yeah, I want a few shivers running up and down my spine.  Though, admittedly these are not going to be that scary.

Here they are, your candidates for vote this month:

Like Arrows by Freya Barker

Like Arrows by Freya Parker
#6 Cedar Tree

A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Gray

A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Gray
Untitled #1
Historical Romantic Suspense



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 love the retro cover for A Most Extraordinary Pursuit, so that’s what I voted for. Have a wonderful weekend, Shari!
    Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

    • Thanks for your vote, Lexxie. You have a great weekend, too.

      Oh yes, that is a lovely old-style cover to match the period mystery.

  • I didn’t know about these but I’m curious about the second too!

    • Yes, curious is how I feel about them, too, Melliane. 🙂

  • I voted for A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Gray as I thought it was very interesting to see a historical romantic suspense! Sounds like a fun combination of genres.

    • I love that combo and was eager to try this new to me author.

  • LOL, so far we all have picked the same book! Happy reading

  • I picked Juliana Gray. Enjoy it!

    • Super, Maggie! Appreciate your vote. It does look fun.

  • Oh I didn’t know the Juliana Gray one was out yet. I was sent the intro novella when it came back then never heard anything about the series again. Yay for it almost being here 😀

    • Oh yep! It was your novella review that helped this one catch my eye. 🙂 It looks like this one focuses on things several years later.

      • Yeah, I saw the hero from the novella had passed away for book one. So sad! He was an older gent, though.

        • I’m almost glad I missed the novella b/c I’d probably be sad and miss him.

  • I haven’t heard of either of these, but I definitely had a preference between the two… happy reading! 😉

    Have a fantastic weekend. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    • These were both new to me authors as well. That is tremendous. Definitely want your preference. Thanks, Alyssa! 🙂

  • RO

    It’s looking like Julianna Grey is winning, huh? (lol) I like the idea of a historical suspense novel. Sounds unique. Happy Sunday!

    • Yeah, this is the biggest margin in the vote I’ve ever had. LOL! It does look pretty good. You have a lovely Sunday, too, Ro!

  • I would say go with Julianna Grey’s one…I have heard great things about her writing.

    • I love getting your advice, Renee. I saw a review for the prequel on Anna’s blog and she was very favorable, too. Looks like I’ll get to experience her writing for the first time this month. 🙂

  • If you know me, then you know which one I chose. LOL! Though, I do hope you enjoy both.

    • Yes, I am pretty sure I know you and that handsome Native American would have a book date between the two. 😉 I do hope to squeeze in both. Sometimes these votes are more a matter of which will get read first than anything else.

  • I went to Like Arrows, I like the blurb for both of them but that cover for Like Arrows…lols 🙂

    Happy Reading Sophia!

    • Oh yep, yep! He does have a handsome, brooding face. 🙂
