Which Book From Mt TBR Should I Read Next Poll

Hi Guys

Im having difficulty picking my next book to read from Mt TBR so I thought I would throw the selection over to you AND have a crack at running a poll on my blog!

I have selected four books for you to pick from and you can (In theory I ticked the box) vote as many times as you like. The poll is located at the top of the right hand column (Look right you cant miss it!)

The contenders are:

Nobody's Princess by Esther Friesner
"She is beautiful, she is a princess, and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess, but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for more out of life. Not one to count on the gods—or her looks—to take care of her, Helen sets out to get what she wants with steely determination and a sassy attitude. That same attitude makes Helen a few enemies—such as the self-proclaimed "son of Zeus" Theseus—but it also intrigues, charms, and amuses those who become her friends, from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of Delphi.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
“They say that the cure for love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them.
 Until now.
 Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.”

Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich
“Turn on all the lights and check under your bed. Things are about to get spooky in Trenton, New Jersey.

According to legend, the Jersey Devil prowls the Pine Barrens and soars above the treetops in the dark of night. As eerie as this might seem, there are things in the Barrens that are even more frightening and dangerous. And there are monkeys. Lots of monkeys.
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has Munch on her most-wanted list for failure to appear in court. Plum is the all-American girl stuck in an uncomfortable job, succeeding on luck and tenacity. Usually she gets her man. This time she gets a monkey. She also gets a big guy named Diesel.

Diesel and Plum hunt down Munch and Grimoire, following them into the Barrens, surviving cranberry bogs, the Jersey Devil, a hair-raising experience, sand in their underwear, and, of course . . . monkeys.”

Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harknass
"Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell."


  1. I loved Discovery of Witches so I would suggest that book!

  2. Love these type of polls, fun.
    I voted for Nobody's Princess because currently right now I am very much into greek mythology based (re-tellings, etc) stories. Hope it wins. :D Regardless, have fun reading which ever book does indeed win.

  3. I only voted for Plum Spooky because it's quick and fun. Then I'd read about the witches :)

  4. Thanks to everyone who has voted.

    Looks like Plum Spooky and Nobody's Princess are neck and neck.

    I do actually like your idea Stacy of Plum Spooky first cos its quick. But suppose should stick to the rules I have imposed on myself hehe.

    Either way any of these books will be good which is why I thought I would run the poll to help with the decision making process :)

  5. I loved Delirium so voted for that one but I do like the sound of Discovery of Witches.
    Happy reading whichever book gets the vote :)
