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).
It was a tight race this week. I had a three way tie up until Friday night, when I sent out a plea for a tie breaker. With nine votes to the other two at eight votes each, Peter Swanson's The Girl with a Clock For a Heart wins my August TBR poll. I think that was my closest poll yet! Thank you to all who voted!
It just so happens I just finished reading Julia Alvarez's In the Time of the Butterflies and am ready to jump right into Peter Swanson's novel.
What are you reading this weekend?

Looks like it was a close race between the 3 choices. I am reading a Biography of Ernest Hemingway and some memoirs.ReplyDelete
Ellen - It was close! This month's choices were all popular. :-)Delete
It's been ages since I read anything by Hemingway. How are you enjoying the biography about him?

So far I am, Bunnita! Thank you for voting for it. :-)Delete
I voted for the book that won, but what strikes me is how incredibly close all of them were in the running! Wendy, do you ever remember that happening before on your blog?ReplyDelete
Donna Marie - I know I've had close polls before, but I don't think quite that close, especially not right up until the last minute.Delete
