I came across this meme and thought it sounded like a lot of fun. I like the idea of YOU choosing a book for me! It’s hosted by Because Reading is better than real life and you can click on the button to get all the deets. But in a nutshell, I give you 3 books, you vote and I’ll review the book by the end of the month.
So these are my three options and I’m choosing them all from books I’m excited about but never got around to reading. So whichever wins, I’m happy!
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness:
I’ve only read one Patrick Ness book (A Monster Calls) and I want to read more. Plus this one came with a super cute badge that said ‘I am not the chosen one’! That’s nearly reason enough!
What if you aren’t the Chosen One?
The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?
What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.
Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.
Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions.
After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid:
I adored Maybe In Another Life so I snapped this one up in a kindle sale.
When Lauren and Ryan’s marriage reaches the breaking point, they come up with an unconventional plan. They decide to take a year off in the hopes of finding a way to fall in love again. One year apart, and only one rule: they cannot contact each other. Aside from that, anything goes.
Lauren embarks on a journey of self-discovery, quickly finding that her friends and family have their own ideas about the meaning of marriage. These influences, as well as her own healing process and the challenges of living apart from Ryan, begin to change Lauren’s ideas about monogamy and marriage. She starts to question: When you can have romance without loyalty and commitment without marriage, when love and lust are no longer tied together, what do you value? What are you willing to fight for?
This is a love story about what happens when the love fades. It’s about staying in love, seizing love, forsaking love, and committing to love with everything you’ve got. And above all, After I Do is the story of a couple caught up in an old game—and searching for a new road to happily ever after
Caching In by Tracy Krimmer:
I do the odd bit of cache hunting so the theme of this one appealed to me.
Can a compass lead you to love?
Broken-hearted Ally Couper has had enough with her ridiculous life. Her job at the bank is going nowhere, and her love life might as well be non-existent.
Determined to try something new, Ally becomes absorbed in the world of geocaching. The high-tech driven scavenger hunt introduces her to Seth, and she realizes the game isn’t the only thrilling part.
Ally’s bad luck may finally be changing, until the past threatens to halt her future with Seth. Can they find happiness together, or is love the one cache Ally can’t find?
Over to you, no such thing as a free ride around here, you have to do some work too! Which do you want to see me read and review before the end of July? And I’d love to hear your reasoning down in the comments too. So go vote and then talk to me!
