**My TBR List ~ January ~ The Mythology 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?!?


Wow ~ I had a lot of voters this month! Thanks for that. And apparently, quite a few of y'all are JLA fans. ;) 

The winner is:

Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)Half-Blood
Covenant #1

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals -- well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1: Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

Thanks for voting, y'all. And don't worry. I'll be reading both The Scorpio Races and Troy High at some point this year. :)


  1. The Scorpio Races is one of the best YA books written this century, seriously! I can't wait for you to read it and let me know what you think. (I'll bet you'll like it more than Half-Blood, lol) :P

  2. I keep hearing great things about the Covenant series so enjoy :) The Scorpio Races was unique, but a bit slow heh.

  3. I hope you'll enjoy this one! I still have to catch up on this series, but I enjoyed the first few book.

  4. I think I have this one on my kindle, Brandee.. Maybe I'll start reading it soon, too? I hope you're having a great weekend, my dear. Only 121 days and 7 hours!!!
    *BIG HUGS*

  5. That would be great, Lexxie! It's something I've always meant to read since I love her Lux series so much. :) My weekend was pretty good - spent getting ready to take Sky on our trip this week. We're touring 3 colleges in the Pacific Northwest. I hope your weekend was fabulous!

    120 days, 12 hours!!

    **BIG HUGS**

  6. I'm glad to know you liked the first few, Lola. I think I'm going to like it!

  7. Thanks, Julie. I'm hoping I'll like it - I've heard good things as well. And I'll let you know what I think of The Scorpio Races when I get to it. ;)

  8. I can't wait to get to it then, Ramona. I adore Maggie's writing! Maybe next month. :)

  9. YES!! I am keen to see what you think of this series! I am waiting for the final book.... before the spinoff comes next month! I am excited!

  10. Ooh, I'm so glad you're reading Half -Blood. Can't wait to see what you think of it. Hope you enjoy the whole series.

  11. Jennifer Armentrout is one of my new favorites. I haven't read this one and look forward to what you think :)

  12. I love her Lux series, Lorna. So I've been meaning to read her other work. :)

  13. Thanks, Marilyn. I'm thinking I might need to start with Daimon? Is that correct? I don't want to read things out of order. I'm really excited to get started though!

  14. I'm really excited, Naomi. I've had Half-Blood for a really long time. :)

  15. JLA is so freaking awesome. I loooved this series so much and actually just finished it since I've been putting it off. Sadly it is over, but now I can reread the series lol. The Scorpio Races was amazing, I had hoped for a sequel, sadly no dice. I haven't heard of Troy High so I'll wait for your review on that one. Good luck on this challenge.


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