My To-Be Read List #17: chosen book

Posted January 9, 2016 by Lola in My To-Be Read List, Mystery / 28 Comments


My To-Be Read List is a meme hosted by Because Reading is Better Than Real Life where at the beginning of the month visitors can choose which book I’ll be reading this month. On the first saturday of a month the poll will be up, then on the second saturday of the month I’ll announce the book that won and on the last saturday of the month I’ll post my review of the book.

It was an exciting vote this month! Each book got a lot of votes and it kept switfting which book was ahead till The semester of Our Discontent took the lead and stayed there, but the other two did well too. And how come every time I do one of these polls I end up wanting to read all 3 books?

Here’s the amount of votes each book got:
– Nexis (Tricksters #1) by A.L. Davroe – 8 votes/ 33,33%
– Reckless (Rescue Squad #1) by Kimberly Kincaid – 6 votes/ 25%
– The Semester of our Discontent (Lila Maclean Mystery #1) by Cynthia Kuhn – 10 votes/ 41,67%

The Winner

The Semester of our DiscontentThe Semester of our Discontent (Lila Maclean Mystery #1)
by Cynthia Kuhn

Format: e-copy

You can find The Semester of our Discontent on Goodreads

English professor Lila Maclean is thrilled about her new job at prestigious Stonedale University, until she finds one of her colleagues dead. She soon learns that everyone, from the chancellor to the detective working the case, believes Lila—or someone she is protecting—may be responsible for the horrific event, so she assigns herself the task of identifying the killer.

More attacks on professors follow, the only connection a curious symbol at each of the crime scenes. Putting her scholarly skills to the test, Lila gathers evidence, but her search is complicated by an unexpected nemesis, a suspicious investigator, and an ominous secret society. Rather than earning an “A” for effort, she receives a threat featuring the mysterious emblem and must act quickly to avoid failing her assignment…and becoming the next victim.

Come back on January 30 for my review of this book! Thanks to everyone who voted!

    • I agree that first line of the blurb is great and immediately makes me wonder what happened. I also hope it’s as good as it sounds, I’ll be starting this one as soon as I finish my current read.

    • I usually start them as soon as the vote has ended, I’ll finish my current read and then will start this one. With my slow reading I have to do that or else I won’t finish in time to review it on the last saturday. I am looking forward to this one!
