**My TBR List ~ And the Winner Is...**


My To-Be Read List is a new meme hosted by Michelle @Because Reading. Michelle has been doing this for awhile and recently decided to extend the fun for us all. I thought it was a fabulous idea because it gets y'all in the game and it helps me knock off some of the many, many books on my TBR list. You're more than welcome to join in the fun! I've included the basic rules below but you can click on the graphic above to hop over to Michelle's site where you can find all the details. 

Here's how it works:
On the first Saturday of each month, I will make a post with three books from my TBR List (these books can be already on your ereader or bookshelf OR books you might want to purchase) and add your link on the linky that will be provided on Michelle's post. Y'ALL will help me choose which book I will read next. The following Saturday, I will announce which book won. Then the last Saturday of the month, I'll post my review.

Fun, right?!?


The votes have been tabulated...and the winner is: Forbidden

For those of you who didn't vote for Forbidden, rest assured I will be reading Playing Patience and The Law of soon as I can fit them in. ;)  Don't forget to enter the giveaway below. 

Forbidden (The Arotas Trilogy, #1)Roseline Enescue didn't ask to become an Immortal, to have all the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend. Willing to risk everything for a chance at a normal life, Roseline escapes to America. Terrified her husband Vladimir will find her, Roseline enrolls as a senior in Chicago's elite Rosewood Prep schoo. Mingling with humans is the last place he would look for her. But her transition into the human world isn't easy. Mortal men flock after her while cutthroat girls plot her demise. Yet Roseline remains relatively unfazed by the petty hysteria until she falters into the arms of Gabriel Marston, reluctant MVP quarterback, unwilling ladies man, and sensitive artist in hiding. Troubled by the bond that pulls her towards the mortal boy, Roseline tries to ignor him, but Gabriel is persistent. As their lives entwine, Roseline begins to realize that Gabriel is much more than he appears. His ability to toss a football the entire length of the field and grind concrete into dust pales in comparison to the glowing blue cross tattoo that mysteriously appears on his forearms. Despite the forbidden bond between them, Roseline can't help wondering what Gabriel is: He's not human. He's not immortal. So just what is he?

The ereader cover is actually a Nook cover but my Kindle Paperwhite fits in it just fine. So, it fits a Nook Glowlight, Kindle Paperwhite, and probably a Kindle. Just a few names on it: Abbi Glines, CD Reiss, CJ Roberts, Tara Sivec, Jasinda Wilder, Colleen Hoover, Mia Sheridan, those authors above, of course, and more. :) I have various swag I'm throwing in as well, some signed, some not.

This giveaway will run until the 29th, when my review of whichever book wins is posted.

  1. I hope you'll enjoy Forbidden, Brandee :) I already can't remember which book I voted for, my brain is scrambled these days...
    Have a fantastic weekend, and a great violin recital tomorrow :) *BIG HUGS*

  2. I hope I enjoy it, too, Lexxie. You voted for it! :)

    I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! *BIG HUGS*

  3. Yay!! I am keen to see what you think of Forbidden! Whoo hoo!
    Will an iPad fit in the cover??

  4. Happy Reading and how fab you are giving away the ereader cover!

  5. Thanks! And good luck in the giveaway if you entered. :)

  6. I'm excited to read it too, Naomi. No, I don't think an iPad will fit in the cover. It's too small. I don't even think a mini would fit. But if you win, you could always just display it on your bookshelf! :)

  7. I hope you enjoy it Brandee - I'm pretty sure it's the one I voted for. It's definitely one I would pick up, based off the cover alone.


Now you know what I think...what are your thoughts??
