Select Me Saturday – pick my next read!

Lately I have found myself in the mother of all slumps so I know I needed to do something about it…..so I made a list….a list of all the books I have on my tbr!

It’s an old skool written list and I am in love with it and not sure why I haven’t done this sooner…..and this is where I need your help!

Pick for me!!!

Which of the 3 books below should I read next week?

The book with the most mentions in comments is the one I will read….


 

The First Girl Child by Amy Harmon

Bayr of Saylok, bastard son of a powerful and jealous chieftain, is haunted by the curse once leveled by his dying mother. Bartered, abandoned, and rarely loved, she plagued the land with her words: From this day forward, there will be no daughters in Saylok.

Raised among the Keepers at Temple Hill, Bayr is gifted with inhuman strength. But he’s also blessed with an all-too-human heart that beats with one purpose: to protect Alba, the first girl child born in nearly two decades and the salvation for a country at risk.

Now the fate of Saylok lies with Alba and Bayr, whose bond grows deeper with every whisper of coming chaos. Charged with battling the enemies of their people, both within and without, Bayr is fueled further by the love of a girl who has defied the scourge of Saylok.

What Bayr and Alba don’t know is that they each threaten the king, a greedy man who built his throne on lies, murder, and betrayal. There is only one way to defend their land from the corruption that has overtaken it. By breaking the curse, they could defeat the king…but they could also destroy themselves.


 

Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

They were the new icons of rock and roll, fated to burn bright and not fade away.
But on 12 July 1979, it all came crashing down.

There was Daisy, rock and roll force of nature, brilliant songwriter and unapologetic drug addict, the half-feral child who rose to superstardom.

There was Camila, the frontman’s wife, too strong-willed to let the band implode – and all too aware of the electric connection between her husband and Daisy.

There was Karen, ice-cool keyboardist, a ferociously independent woman in a world that wasn’t ready for her.

And there were the men surrounding them: the feuding, egotistical Dunne brothers, the angry guitarist chafing on the sidelines, the drummer binge-drinking on his boat, the bassist trying to start a family amid a hedonistic world tour. They were creative minds striking sparks from each other, ready to go up in flames.

It’s never just about the music…


 

The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.

That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.

But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.

  1. Wow! Those are totally different from each other aren’t they? I’ve read Daisy Jones and it was amazing. I actually listened to it and the casting was perfect. Is tyat Amy Harmon book the same author who writes contemporary romance? I’ll admit, it sounds mythological and it kind of intrigues me. Lol. Not really helping am I. The crows novel is on my own TBR. I keep picking it up and putting it down again for some reason.

      1. I guess it depends on the site? My subscription is with Libro.fm because it supports my local independent bookstore. They do have a good selection but not as many as audible with Amazon. Amazon gets enough of my money and I like to spread my purchases around. Lol
