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.

But they are all different genres, one’s a contemporary romance, one a time travel book and the last one is an urban fantasy book. Looking forward to see which book get’s the most votes this month!

A Moment To Love A Moment to Love (A Whistle Stop Romance #1)
by Jennifer Faye

You can find A Moment to Love on Goodreads

Welcome to Whistle Stop…where anything can and most likely will happen.

The notorious cowboy meets his match…

Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop. She was very pretty and clearly a city girl–but with memories of his failed marriage still darkening his mind, he’s determined to steer clear! But she’s sniffing around his land–land that has been in his family for generations. There was no way he’d let it go–even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and even if selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.

Alexis Greer had one mission–close the deal on the Lawson ranch; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. What had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence? However, determination was Lexi’s middle name. She just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, to appeal somehow to his head and heart–even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.

by John A. Heldt

You can find September Sky on Goodreads

When unemployed San Francisco reporter Chuck Townsend and his college-dropout son, Justin, take a cruise to Mexico in 2016, each hopes to rebuild a relationship after years of estrangement. But they find more than common ground aboard the ship. They meet a mysterious lecturer who touts the possibilities of time travel. Within days, Chuck and Justin find themselves in 1900, riding a train to Texas, intent on preventing a distant uncle from being hanged for a crime he did not commit. Their quick trip to Galveston, however, becomes long and complicated when they wrangle with business rivals and fall for two beautiful librarians on the eve of a hurricane that will destroy the city. Filled with humor, history, romance, and heartbreak, SEPTEMBER SKY follows two directionless souls on the adventure of a lifetime as they try to make peace with the past, find new purpose, and grapple with the knowledge of things to come.

by Kristi Charish

You can find Owl and the Japanese Circus on Goodreads

Fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, and Linda Hamilton will flock to the kick-ass world of Owl, a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world.

Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief, Alix—better known now as Owl—has one rule. No supernatural jobs. Ever. Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen three thousand years ago, and makes her an offer she can’t refuse: he’ll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead. A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl’s vampire problem – and let’s face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief.

Owl retraces the steps of Mr. Kurosawa’s ancient thief from Japan to Bali with the help of her best friend, Nadya, and an attractive mercenary. As it turns out though, finding the scroll is the least of her worries. When she figures out one of Mr. Kurosawa’s trusted advisors is orchestrating a plan to use a weapon powerful enough to wipe out a city, things go to hell in a hand basket fast…and Owl has to pick sides.

    • I think I came across one of Faye her books on your blog and was so excited when she sent me a review request for this book! All 3 of these are books I am realy looking forward to!

    • Owl sounds really good, I read some good reviews of it so far, so I am really looking forward to it. The other two sound good as well though, so I am happy to have you all vote for me because I can’t choose.

    • I’ve seen it aroudn quite a lot lately as well and it sounds really good so I had to grab my copy. It also was pretty cheap. There are so little new urban fantasy series that have catched my interest lately, so I am happy to have found this one.

  1. I feel like I may be the odd-man out, but I voted for September Sky. First, the cover was pretty. Also, the time travel thing sounded really fun. Also, I love books that deal with family stuff. So even though it doesn’t look like it’ll win, I am excited for when you do read and review it 🙂

    • I just finished another book by that author, so I am curious to his other series as well. I am not a fan of time travel, but the family stuff sounds like a win, and I like how he handled the time travel in his other series. I will eventually read it, even though it might take a while and yeah changes of it winning are low, but it still got some votes!

    • Oh sad to hear you had to skip this month, but indeed if you don’t feel like you could fit in another book you shouldn’t force yourself to participate.
      At this point I am pretty sure Owl will win!
