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.

There is a certain category of books on my shelves that I am particularly ashamed to have neglected- the giveaway wins.  Here, someone generously gave away their book, I entered the contest, and won-woohoo, but then there it sat…  I am determined to do better about this.  So, here, we’ll start with two choices.

 

Candidate #1

Elsker by S.T. Bende
#1 The Elsker Saga
New Adult Paranormal Romance

Candidate #2

Angeli by Jody Wallace
#1 Maelstrom Chronicles
Paranormal Romance

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.

Both of these are new to me so I didn’t have much to go off of! I went with #1 though, because Norse mythology!

Have a lovely week. =)

I have a weak spot when mythology is blended into a story, too.

I voted for Elsker, I read it back when it got first released and I enjoyed it. Although now that i think about it, I don’t think I’ve finished the series.

Oh neat! Glad to get a vote after you already enjoyed it. LOL, I have so many series that remain unfinished after I started them.

I almost went with book 2 because of the cover, but then I read the blurbs. Book 1. 🙂

Yeah, not a neck and neck contest here. But there could be a late sprint to bring it closer… 😉

I went with the second book but only because I like that cover more. It looks like I am in the minority though. I hope you enjoy whichever book you end up reading 🙂

Sophia Rose

I do love that cover especially since it matches the blurb which one can’t always count on. Oh yes, poor Angel needs some votes. 🙂

I like the cover for the second book so I chose that one since I haven’t heard of these authors before. I hope you enjoy whichever book you decided on doing.

Cover love is a definite factor. Thanks for voting, Renee! 🙂

Something about the title, Angeli and that cover seems to be calling me, so that was my choice. Can’t wait to see what wins! Hugs…RO
