My November TBR List Winner!

No Sunday post this weekend. It's been a very busy weekend. Mouse had her last soccer game Saturday and then we rushed across town for Girl-Derness, a Girls Scout camping event. While the older girls are able to spend the night, my young Daisies aren't quite there yet. Instead, they took part in a variety of day camp activities. It was a lot of fun for the girls, and I am sure we will all sleep well tonight!

Thank you to all who voted in my November TBR List Poll. Some days I wish I could have you all vote on every book I read. Making the decision can be so hard with so many choices. As it was, it took me two hours to settle on the three in this month's poll. If I am able, I hope to read all three.


My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Sunday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow. While I will attempt to post my review that same month, I make no promises--it may go up the following month. 



This month's choices included:


Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn



Lazaretto by Diane McKinney-Whetstone



The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

I cheated and peeked at the results throughout the week, and up until near the end, only two books had votes. Even with that, it was pretty much a landslide in terms of who would win. With one (1) vote for Lazerrato, two (2) for Here Comes the Sun, The Sun Is Also a Star came in first place with twenty (20) votes.

I am very much looking forward to diving into Nicola Yoon's novel, The Sun Is Also a Star. Thank you again to all who voted!

  9. I really enjoyed Everything Everything and I'm not a YA fan but some inspire me to read them. Enjoy

    1. Marce - I've heard great things about Everything Everything, so hopefully this one will be just as good. Admittedly, contemporary YA isn't really something I gravitate toward usually either.
