To Be or Not to Be…Read TBR Pile Vote September 2017

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.

For this time around, I’m picking Young Adult Dystopian for my theme.  I really need to finish up the Lunar Chronicles series, but I’ve also been meaning to read the Divergent series since I saw the movies and learned the books are better.  Dilemma, here.  Happy to let you solve it for me.  Haha!

Candidate #1

Cress by Marissa Meyer
#3 Lunar Chronicles
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13206828-cress?ac=1&from_search=true

Candidate #2

Divergent by Veronica Roth
#1 Divergent
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13335037-divergent?from_search=true

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!

LOL, Michelle! Sorry to make it so taxing.

I voted Divergent because I’ve seen the first movie.

I enjoyed the movie, too, Lorna. 🙂

I voted for Divergent as I read that one. I haven’t started the Lunar Chronicles yet, but heard good things about it.

Sophia Rose

I’ll have to check and see what you thought of it. The fairy retelling aspect is what drew me to the Lunar Chronicles, but I enjoy all the intrigue and action, too.

I haven’t read either of these books however Marissa Meyer has been on my list. Hope you enjoy the one you choose to pick up.

Sophia Rose

I need to get back to these types of books for a change up. I’m sure I’ll enjoy whichever one wins, Renee. 🙂

Melliane

Ah I can’t decide this time bacause I did read Cinder so I’m curious to know more about Cress and I have Divergent to read as well so well I’m interested for both

LOL, sorry to make it so tough, Melliane. 🙂

Cress because it’s a new one to me and it sounds pretty cool!

Sophia Rose

I’ve enjoyed the first two, so I’ll be happy to continue with Cress. Thanks for the vote. 🙂

I love the Lunar Chronicles!

Sophia Rose

Me, too, Kimberly. Though, yes, I do need to get going and finish them. LOL

Definitely Cress even thought hat wasn’t my favorite of the series. It’s still a lot of fun though.

Divergent was good but then…yeah, I wish I stopped there. lol

For What It’s Worth

Sophia Rose
Guest

Uh-oh, good to know so my expectations are right for which one I get to read, Karen. 🙂

Alyssa Susanna
Guest

Oooo, I recommend Cress, not because I’ve read it (I haven’t) bit so you can continue with a series! Reading Divergent would mean starting an entirely new series. 😀 Either way, I hope you enjoy the book you choose, Shari!

Have a wonderful day. =)
