June's TBR List Poll Winner

Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:


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 Saturday 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 (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).




Thank you to everyone who voted in my monthly TBR List Poll. Behind the scenes, this was one of the most exciting polls to watch as one book would seem to be ahead, and then all three tied, and then another came out on top until all three tied again. At least, that was until the eventual winner took the lead to cross the finish line with 44.6% (16) of the votes. Christopher Brookmyre's Dead Girl Walking and Marion Pauw's Girl in the Dark each settled in with 27.8% (10) of the votes, tying for second place.

June's winner is:


The Lost Girls of Rome by Donato Carrisi, Howard Curtis (translator) ~ A forensic analyst with the Rome police recently lost her husband. The authorities believe it was a suicide, but his wife isn't convinced. She begins her own investigation into his death, which leads her into dangerous territory, including a possible centuries-old secret society.

I am looking forward to reading The Lost Girls of Rome. A suspicious death and a possible secret society . . . Sounds exciting!

Thank you again to all who voted! Enjoy your weekend and this coming week. Happy Reading!
