January TBR list – Voting!

TBRMemeMy TBR list is a meme hosted by Michelle at Because Reading which aims to help knock a few books off our TBR piles by letting everyone else vote on what we should read!

I’ve opened up my TBR for voting before, so I couldn’t resist when I saw Michelle’s TBR list Meme!  I’ve picked three books from my Reading Assignment List that I fancy at the moment.

All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a victory are grim. Kronos’s army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan’s power only grows.

While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it’s up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy’s sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

I read the first Percy Jackson book in 2013, and then this year finally got around to reading the second, third and fourth.  The Last Olympian will finish the (first) series for me, and I know I’ll enjoy reading it because the books are just great fun!

I am the perfect weapon.
I kill with a single touch.

Twylla is blessed. The Gods have chosen her to marry a prince, and rule the kingdom. But the favour of the Gods has it’s price. A deadly poison infuses her skin. Those who anger the queen must die under Twylla’s fatal touch.

Only Lief, an outspoken new guard, can see past Twylla’s chilling role to the girls she truly is.

Yet in a court as dangerous and the queen’s, some truths should not be told…

 

The Sin Eater’s Daughter seems to have been really popular, and I bought it ages ago on a kindle deal, but I just need a little extra push to actually read it, hence adding it to my Reading Assignment challenge list this year!

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”, she speaks many languages – not all of them human – and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

SO many of my friends adored this series, but I’ve still yet to start it! I’m sure I’ll eventually like it when I get round to it, I just need to actually start it!

  1. Naturally, I voted for DoS&B (as I’m sure you knew I would lol) I just adored Laini Taylor’s gorgeous, emotional prose and the characters, the world(s), THE FEELS. I did quite enjoy the Percy Jackson series too though, but I never truly fell in love with it, you know?! I found books 2 and 3 a tad too formulaic for my liking, but I still enjoyed them. My favorite of the series is #4, with #5 closely behind. I’m curious to see how you’ll make out with the rest of the series but DoS&B has a special place in my heart!

  2. This is such a difficult choice! Two of them especially appeal to me, although all three sound good. I’m going to go with Melinda Salisbury’s book. I have never heard of it before or the author, but it sure sounds good! I hope you enjoy whichever book you end up reading. 🙂
