Posted August 1, 2015 by Stormi in Memes / 15 Comments

MyTBRList-1024x661My TBR List is a meme hosted by Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to make yourself read a book each month off of your TBR pile. The first Saturday we vote on a book out of three listed, the second Saturday we reveal the winner and on the Last Saturday of the month we post our review. So come on and join the fun and for more information about it head on over to Michelle’s blog!

My Picks for this Month

I made me a cool little TBR jar and put some of my books print and ebook, review and nonreview in the jar. I pulled out three and those will be what you are voting on. Whichever gets picked I read the other two go back in the jar. I have a kind of dark mix here and it’s kind of funny that these all got pulled out.

What Alice Knew

“Under Certain Circumstances, No One Is More Suited to Solving a Crime than a Woman Confined to Her Bed”

An invalid for most her life, Alice James is quite used to people underestimating her. And she generally doesn’t mind. But this time she is not about to let things alone. Yes, her brother Henry may be a famous author, and her other brother William a rising star in the new field of psychology. But when they all find themselves quite unusually involved in the chase for a most vile new murderer-one who goes by the chilling name of Jack the Ripper-Alice is certain of two things:

No one could be more suited to gather evidence about the nature of the killer than her brothers. But if anyone is going to correctly examine the evidence and solve the case, it will have to be up to her.


It could happen tomorrow . . .
An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device, wiping out every computerized system, and killing billions.
Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom—a young soldier—and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP.

For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it’s now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

Author Ilsa J. Bick crafts a terrifying and thrilling novel about a world that could be ours at any moment, where those left standing must learn what it means not just to survive, but to live amidst the devastation.

the sister

The Sister is a fast-paced epic story. Suspenseful, and thrilling, it is a mystery that unravels over time, following the lives of a group of seemingly unconnected people, as they struggle to bring an unusually talented serial killer to justice.

CORNWALL, ENGLAND. In the summer of love, 1967, two children witness a murder. One, a seven-year old boy, views it from fifty yards – the other, a young Irish girl, from miles away…

LONDON, 2006. With retirement looming, DCI John F Kennedy reopens the only unresolved case in his career, the disappearance of a young nurse, Kathy, twenty-three years earlier. The broadcast appeal for information on the missing teenage runaway, Eilise; is followed by a cold-case reconstruction of Kathy’s last known movements. A new witness comes forward, and Kennedy – now set on the trail of a serial killer – unwittingly sparks a sequence of events that lead back to himself, threatening his own, very private existence.

As the investigation unfolds, it becomes apparent that the murderer is no ordinary adversary. Resourceful and cunning, he has been operating undetected for over forty years, and it seems that only the original witnesses from 1967 can stop him.

But they have yet to meet…

The Sister is much more than just an ordinary thriller. It is the story of a lifetime…The book is a two part pilot episode with resolution, but left open to a series of planned spin-off self-contained episodes involving a selection of characters from the original story, the first of which is due for release in late spring.

Help me pick my first read out of my new TBR jar!

      Oh, come on! LOL I think What Alice Knew is the least scary you might be able to do that one..hehe. I am a bit curious about them all. 🙂

      I am really not sure why I have this series as I have never been a big zombie fan but it needs to be read. 🙂

  1. What Alice knew because I love Jack the Ripper (not him personally since we don’t know who he really is). It’s so hard to do retelling of Jack and I haven’t found one I liked so I would be interested in seeing what you thought.
