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 later that month my review will follow.
Okay below are are the 3 books on which you can vote this month, all 3 are first books in a series and sci-fi books or a sci-fi subgenre, to get into the spirit for sci-fi month 🙂
Brew (Salem’s Revenge #1)
by David Estes
You can find Brew on Goodreads
“The Walking Dead for teens where the zombies are witches.” –Katie Reed, agent at Andrea Hurst & Associates
Salem’s Revenge strikes without warning or mercy, ravaging the powerless human race under the forces of united gangs of witches, wizards, and warlocks. During the slaughter, Rhett Carter’s foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead. Rhett’s sword-wielding neighbor with a dark past saves Rhett from becoming another casualty of the massacre and teaches him the skills he needs to survive in this new world.
Rhett is broken, his normal high school life of book blogging and football playing shoved in a witch-apocalyptic blender. The only thing he has left is his burning desire for revenge. Armed with his new witch hunting skills and a loyal, magic powered dog named Hex, he sets out into the unknown with one mission: hunt and destroy those who took away everyone he ever loved.
But Rhett isn’t just a witch hunter; he has secrets of his own that he has yet to discover, secrets that his enemies will stop at nothing to keep him from.
And discovering the truth about himself is the human race’s only hope.
True Calling (True Calling #1)
by Siobhan Davis

Planet Novo, nestled in space twelve hundred miles above the surface of the Earth, is the new home of 17 year old Cadet Ariana Skyee. Confused by the government-sanctioned memory erase and distressed at her impending forced marriage and motherhood, Ariana’s plans for the future are thrown into complete disarray.
As the traumatic events within her family life enfold, Ariana grows increasingly alarmed at the authorities apparent pre-occupation with her and feels progressively more isolated and alone.
Her growing feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify as the recently announced pageant, ‘The Calling’, gets underway. Struggling to comprehend the continuous, inexplicable dreams of the mysterious Zane, discovering the past helps shape her future, with devastating personal consequences.
Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X #1)
by Richelle Mead
You can find Gameboard of the Gods on Goodreads
In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military’s most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills.
When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.
Gameboard of the Gods, the first installment of Richelle Mead’s Age of X series, will have all the elements that have made her YA Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such megasuccesses: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense.

Thanks Michelle :). I am really curious which one will win, so far I’ve always been able to make a guess, but this month i have no idea which one will win.
Lola recently posted…My To-Be Read List #3
Hard choice this time. I’ve read Gameboard of the Gods and really enjoyed it, but I chose True Calling. A friend of mine read it and LOVED it and I’ve thought about reading it, so I’d like to see another opinion. 🙂
Karsyn @ KaKiJoKoJa recently posted…October Reading Log & Monthly Wrap-Up
I haven’t heard as much about Gameboard of the Gods yet, but as Richelle Mead has written it I am hoping it will be good. I really like the sound of True Calling and it has such a pretty cover!
Gameboard of the Gods is the only one of these I’ve heard of, but I went with Brew because it sounds more interesting to me.
Jenna @ Rather Be Reading YA recently posted…My To-Be Read List: November 2014
David Estes certainly has a knack for writing interesting blurbs. I have both Brew and the sequel Boil for review and feel a bit bad I haven’t read them yet as I love David his books so far!
Brew, hands down. Loved it!
Marni J recently posted…Review: Until I Die Again (Our Souls To Keep #2) by Gary A Caruso
Glad to hear you enjoyed Brew :). I am looking forward to reading it. Thanks for stopping by and voting!
Oh my all three choices look SO GOOD! I had a hard time picking, but I’m going with True Calling. Something about that forced motherhood has me very interested!
Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun recently posted…My TBR List | November 2014 Voting
I am touring True calling with Lola’s Blog Tours and I was very happy when the author asked if I wanted a review copy as well. I really like the sound of the blurb and that cover looks great. Thanks for voting :D.
I’m going with True Calling, only because the cover is so pretty! Swayed by yet another well-designed space scene 😛 The synopsis sounds pretty interesting as well.
Kayla @ The Thousand Lives recently posted…Sci-Fi November: It Begins!
I wanted to read True Calling the moment I saw that pretty cover! The blurb sounds really good as well, I really hope I can get it read this month even if it doesn’t get chosen.
Only heard of one of these titles..had to go with Brew because it got me at zombie witches…lol. 🙂
Stormi recently posted…My TBR Pile~November 2014 Let’s Vote!
I am not a fan of zombies, but Brew sounds really good 🙂
Oh man, definitely read Gameboard of the Gods! It’s seriously fabulous. Although Richelle Mead does have a habit of ending books with cliffhangers, so you might want to have the next one on hand. And that being said, the second book in that series ends on an even bigger cliffhanger! You just can’t win haha
Nara recently posted…Review: Corruption by Jessica Shirvington
I usually don’t mind cliffhangers too much, although Richelle Mead certainly has a way of ending her books in such a way you want the next one. I am happy the next book is already released, so I can order it after I read the first book. Or maybe I should just wait till the third book is released, so I can read them back to back.
I am glad to hear it’s good though!
I voted Game Board of Gods because my friend actually leant me that one and it’s glaring at me from my endless TBR and I have noooo idea what it’s like or if it’s good and AH! I need a second opinion, lol. SO yes. That’s what I vote for!
Cait @ Notebook Sisters recently posted…My Hero Monday: Maggie Stiefvater
I have no idea whether it’s good or not, I haven’t read that many reviews of it yet, but it is written by Richelle Mead and I have enjoyed her books so far!
I picked Gameboard of the Gods because it’s one I really want to read. 🙂

Thanks for voting Brandee, I pre-ordered Gameboard of the Gods before it was released. And I feel a bit bad I still haven’t read it. And it’s even by one of my favourite authors.
