My TBR List: ~Let’s Vote! ~January

January 2, 2021 Memes 6

My TBR List is a meme hosted by Michelle and Berls 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 and Berl’s blog!

My Picks for this Month

I haven’t done one of these in a long time but decided I will let you guys pick which series book I am going to pick up this month because I am wanting to finish more of my series and sometimes it’s just hard to decide. 🙂

Librarian Lucy Richardson unearths a mysterious map dating back to the Civil War. But if she can’t crack its code, she may end up read and buried.

The Bodie Island Lighthouse Library Classic Novel Book Club is reading Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne while workers dig into the earth to repair the Lighthouse Library’s foundations. The digging halts when Lucy pulls a battered tin box containing a Civil War-era diary from the pit. Tucked inside is a hand-drawn map of the Outer Banks accompanied by a page written in an indecipherable code.

The library is overrun by people clamoring to see the artifact. Later that night, Lucy and Connor McNeil find the body of historical society member Jeremy Hughes inside the library. Clearly Jeremy was not the only one who broke into the library–the map and the coded page are missing.

Lucy’s nemesis, Louise Jane McKaughnan, confesses to entering the library after closing to sneak a peek but denies seeing Jeremy–or his killer. When Lucy discovers that fellow-librarian Charlene had a past with Jeremy, she’s forced to do what she vowed not to do–get involved in the case. Meanwhile, the entire library staff and community become obsessed with trying to decode the page. But when the library has a second break in, it becomes clear that someone is determined to solve that code.

This is book #6 in the Lighthouse Library series and I have a way overdue eARC!

While Merry is distracted by her quickly planned marriage to Virgil Grace and a blissful honeymoon in New York, her friend Pish invites the ghost-hunting crew from the TV show Haunt Hunt to investigate Merry’s home, Wynter Castle. Merry soon discovers that not only is the crew out of sync, there are so many feuds and squabbles, it’s a miracle they get a show produced at all.

It all goes from bad to worse when the show’s psychics claim to have contact with people murdered on Merry’s property. When two cast members are found dead, Merry and Virgil must figure out who’s picking off the Haunt Hunt team before their hard-earned happily ever after is cut short.

Okay, so this one I think I might have actually listened to and forgot to review it so it wasn’t marked! It kind of sounds familiar but then kind of doesn’t…lol. So if I it’s picked and it one I read last year and all comes flooding back to me I will just move on to the next book in the series. 🙂 This is book #5 in the Merry Muffin series.

There’s a new witch-hunt in Salem, Massachusetts . . .

When Lee Barrett joins a former student’s bridal party as maid of honor, she expects cake tastings and dress fittings. But wedding planning becomes more peculiar than Lee’s scrying talents could ever predict. There’s a magical baker, a best man with a checkered past, and a talking crow named Poe as the ring bearer. There’s also a kindly old man dead under his apple tree—one of a series of unexplained deaths hanging over the Wiccan community . . .

With witches dropping dead before they even come out of the proverbial broom closet, Lee’s best friend, River, fears she might have somehow unleashed a terrible curse on the city. Now, aided by Poe and her clairvoyant cat, Lee sets out to investigate. Are lives being claimed by vengeful supernatural forces—or by something more shocking? She soon discovers, casting light on the wicked truth can be one killer commitment . . .

I use to keep up with this one then I got way behind! This is book #6 in the Witch City series.

Okay so that is the next book in three cozy mystery series that I need to read. I need you to pick out which one I should read/listen too.

    This is a tough choice. I’ve been wanting to try Eva Gates’ series and I really enjoyed the one book by Perry I read in the series (not It Takes a Coven). So both of those choices are ones I definitely want to read. Muffin to Fear looks cute too! I hope you enjoy whichever wins!

    • Stormi

      Yeah, I wouldn’t mind reading any of these, so I am cool with whichever wins. 🙂

  2. Berls

    I went with it takes a coven since that’s the one I’d most want to read. But they all sound good. I laughed at you feeling like maybe you read the one – been there! I hope you enjoy whichever wins.

    I don’t think you can lose with this list! I picked It Takes a Coven because I just finished listening to it (last audio of 2020) and really liked it. The witch history is a bit more front and center in this one which I really liked.

  4. Michelle

    This was hard but Takes a Coven has the best cover so I went with that one! lol
    I hope you love whichever is picked! 🙂
