To Be or Not to Be…Read – September 2018

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 of course share my thoughts on the book itself in my review post.

I wanted a Spooky read for the season so here we are with a few that look like they might have things that go bump in the night.

Candidate #1

The Ghost Hunter by Lori Brighton
#1 The Hunter
Paranormal Romance

Blurb:

When Ashley Hunter inherits the Inn where her father mysteriously vanished years ago, she jumps at the chance to finally uncover the truth about his disappearance. But soon after taking ownership of the decrepit building, Ashley realizes she’s in for far more than she bargained. Not only has she inherited answers to many sought-after questions, she’s also inherited spirits, demons and even fallen angels! Then Cristian arrives, a gorgeous man who insists he merely needs a room to rent. She believes him, until one by one her ghosts start disappearing…

As a fallen angel destined for a life of servitude, Cristian Lucius is relegated to protecting earth from unwanted spirits. But he can’t accomplish this daunting task alone. He requires assistance from the very woman who frustrates him as much as she intrigues him. Cristian is determined to ignore his intense attraction for Ashley, and focus on his mission. If they don’t work together, they won’t have a chance in hell of defeating the demon threatening their lives. The problem is getting Ashley to trust him. No easy task, considering Cristian is the very man responsible for her father’s disappearance.

Candidate #2

The Kingdom by Amanda Stevens
#2 Graveyard Queen
Urban Fantasy

Blurb:

Deep in the shadowy foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains lies a dying town.

My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I’ve been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I’m coming to think I have another purpose here.

Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I’ve discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town, this withering kingdom, and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

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.

Yeah, no kidding. I picked up another one off the shelf and thought about it, but even the blurb was freaking me out so I pushed it back. LOL

I voted for the Ghost Hunter as I like the sound of the set-up with her inheriting the inn and the mystery. Both of them sound pretty spooky indeed.

Sophia Rose

Yes! I couldn’t choose between them so I’m glad to get everyone’s votes. 🙂 Thanks, Lola!

I voted for The Kingdom because I’ve heard how good this series is and actually have book one in my tbr. That being said, I really like the blurb from Ghost Hunter. So I don’t think you could go wrong.

I read the first book last month. You’re in for a treat, Lorna. Happy to check out book two for you if it wins. 🙂

These both sound good! I ended up voting for The Ghost Hunter, but I think you can’t go wrong with either one!

Sophia Rose

Yes, they do both sound good. Glad I have all of you to help me narrow it down. 🙂

I’ve heard wonderful things. I will probably still try to fit it in by the end of the year.
