What Shall I Read This May? Giveaway

I realised the other day that I've been doing these Throwback Thursday posts inspired by Melissa at My words and pictures for nearly year now - I have posted about 46 books I own but I have hardly read any yet. So on the first Thursday of each month I will post a poll highlighting all the Throwback Thursday books I've highlighted in the last month plus one of the older Throwbacks and ask you to pick which book I should read. The most popular book after 5 days or so, will be picked up by me and actually read and (hopefully!) reviewed by the end of the month. However, in thanks I will also offer anyone who enters a copy of any book from my TBR Shelf. This way older books get a lot of love from both of us!

So to summarise -
- Pick a book you want me to read from my Throwback Thursday's posts and be in with a chance to win a book for yourself from my TBR pile for your own - check my TBR Shelf at the top for some other books that I need to get round to reading!
- I'll ship it out to from the Book Depository so it will be open internationally.
- Leave a comment for an extra entry telling my why I should read your choice!
- Open to followers only (Sorry, but I want to reward those who stop by regularly!). Also I'm not  advertising or publicising this giveaway so it's just for those who read my blog regularly!)
- Poll closes midnight on Tuesday 8th May - I will try to announce the winning book and lucky follower, by next Thursday.

Last month you choose Blood Right by Kristin Painter for me to read and I posted the review earlier this week - read my review here!

This month the books I need to give some serious love to are (you can go to the original posts to see what I said about them if you click on them!):

Which book should I read this month? Fill in the form below!


  1. I only read one book on your list, the Lisa Shearin book. It was a really nice suprise, I don't have it but it was a great book. I was quite surprised because I didn't expect this kind of story with this cover. and finally I don't often see any review about this series and I would be curious to know your opinion. And well I really need to read the second one now.

  2. I have 'Magic Lost, Trouble Found - Lisa Shearin' on my wishlist. I'd love to know what you think of it :)

  3. I haven't read this book but I think you should read SISTER. The blurb is interesting and caught my eye. It sounds like a tense story.

  4. I am all for Magic Lost, Trouble Found - Lisa Shearin cos I am so curious about it :D

  5. Go for Lisa Shearin, Mel! I've been wanting to read her books for some time now, and I hope your review will persuade me to start the series :)) *selfish? me?*

  6. I'm voting for the Thursday book. Perhaps it will encourage me to start that series back up! :D

  7. I think you should read Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin. It sounds like an excellent story and I think you'll enjoy it.

  8. Oh this is an amazing idea! :) And I'm so glad you join in on this feature. :) It's always amazing to see what we have collected to our shelves.

    I voted for Magic Lost, Trouble Found. I've heard these are such fun reads, and I think you will enjoy it from what I've heard. But on a selfish note, I want to see if you enjoy it, as then I think I will definitely love it as well (if you do)

  9. I voted for MAGIC LOST, TROUBLE FOUND. I could not pass it up. Put magic in the title & I'm sold.

  10. Go for Magic Lost, Trouble Found. I've read it and it's a pretty good fantasy book.

  11. I voted for "One Of Our Thursdays Is Missing" - Jasper Fforde... I haven't read it.. but there's a youtuber called: SableCaught... and she talked a little bit about the book... and since that moment I want so bad to read the book! ;)
