My To-Be Read List #32: poll

Posted April 1, 2017 by Lola in My To-Be Read List / 30 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.

For this month I went with different genres! We have one urban fantasy, a romantic comedy and a scfi-fi dystopian book! Two of them are first books in a series and one is a standalone. All three books are by new to me authors and all books are written by an indie author. And I really want to read all three of them, so that’s where you come in and help me decide 🙂

The candidates

 Empowered Agent Empowered: Agent (Empowered #1)
by Dale Ivan Smith

The world says those with superpowers are either heroes or villains. But what if you’re both?

Mathilda Brandt isn’t the angry, out-of-control teenager she was before she got out of jail. She’s hungry for a chance at a normal life, but when a gang threatens her sisters, she has no choice but to use her illegal superpower to protect them.

A secretive government agency gives her a choice: go back to prison for life, or infiltrate a notorious super-villain group in order to stop a psychotic Empowered. To save her city, her family, and herself, Mat must become the last thing she ever wanted to be again: a criminal.

Playing HousePlaying House
by Laura Chapman

She’s a work in progress . . .

Bailey Meredith has had it. As an assistant at a prestigious interior design firm, she’s tired of making coffee and filing invoices. She’ll do just about anything to get out from under the paperwork and into the field for real experience. Then she sees an ad for a job that seems too good to be true.

He’s a fixer upper . . .

Wilder Aldrich knew she would be perfect for the crew the moment he saw her. His hit home improvement show only hired the best, and Bailey had potential written all over her. It isn’t just her imaginative creativity and unmatched work ethic that grabs his attention. There’s just something about her.

With chemistry on screen, it’s only a matter of time before sparks fly behind the scenes as well. But with Bailey’s jaded views on romance and a big secret that could destroy Wilder and everyone he cares about, are either of them willing to risk it all for love?

The RetreatThe Retreat (The After Trilogy #1)
by Kelly St. Clare

Earth is ruined. Humankind destroyed. And it’s old news.

Romy’s life is simple—for a genetically enhanced space soldier; pick up space junk with her four friends, and stave off the invaders fixated on stealing Planet Earth.

It isn’t much. But it’s temporary—only another 850 years to go, give or take.

When her crew tangles with a gulp-worthy alien mothership, Romy’s return to Earth is brought forwards at hurtling pace.

Strength comes from the unlikeliest of quarters.

As does leadership.

…As does betrayal.

Now it’s time to vote!

    Hi, Lola. It’s author B Truly.
    I voted for The Retreat. The cover looked interesting & the blurb sounded good as well as different. Although, Playing House’s blurb sounded pretty good, too.
    Let me know which one you decide & how it turns out.

    • Hi B truly! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am really curious about The Retreat, it does sound good and the cover is so pretty!

      Next Saturday I announce which book got the most votes and then the last Saturday of the month I review that one :).

    • It’s a great cover for a sci-fi book. The cover for book 2 is just as lovely. I am hoping to read it before book 2 releases.
