I’ve just spotted this meme and think it’s a GREAT idea and one that’s going to help me finally read some of the books on #MyTBRL (to be read list). This will hopefully curb my lack of will power when walking past bookshops but there are worse vices to have! So I am going to join in with Berl and Michelle over at My To Be Read List Meme @Because Reading.
I’m new, and you might be to, so here is the information you might need.
• On the First Saturday of the Month you simply pick 3 books from you ever increasing #TBRL and write a post inviting your readers to vote for which book they think you should read.
• On the second Saturday of the month you announce which book has won the vote and then you get reading.
• On the third Saturday you don’t need to do anything.
• On the last Saturday in the month you write your book review so everyone can see what you thought.
1.Watch Me – Angela Clarke
You have six seconds to read this message… The body of a 15-year-old is found hours after she sends a desperate message to her friends. It looks like suicide, until a second girl disappears. This time the message is sent directly to the Metropolitan Police – and an officer’s younger sister is missing. DS Nasreen Cudmore and journalist Frieddie Venton will stop at nothing to find her. But whoever’s behind the notes is playing a deadly game of hide and seek – the clock is ticking… You have 24 hours to save the girl’s life. Make them count.
2. The Five People You Meet In Heaven – Mitch Alborn
All endings are also beginnings, We just don’t know it at the time ….
On his eighty-third birthday, Eddie, a lonely war veteran, dies in a tragic accident trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. With his final breath, he feels two small hands in his – and then nothing. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people who were in it. These people have been loved ones or distant strangers. Yet each of them changed your path forever.
3. Ready Player One – Ernest Cline
It’s the year 2044, and the real world has become an ugly place. We’re out of oil. We’ve wrecked the climate. Famine, poverty, and disease are widespread.
Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes this depressing reality by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia where you can be anything you want to be, where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. And like most of humanity, Wade is obsessed by the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this alternate reality: OASIS founder James Halliday, who dies with no heir, has promised that control of the OASIS – and his massive fortune – will go to the person who can solve the riddles he has left scattered throughout his creation.
For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that the riddles are based in the culture of the late twentieth century. And then Wade stumbles onto the key to the first puzzle.
Suddenly, he finds himself pitted against thousands of competitors in a desperate race to claim the ultimate prize, a chase that soon takes on terrifying real-world dimensions – and that will leave both Wade and his world profoundly changed.
So…which of these books do you think I should finally read?
