Thank you to everyone that took part last week. It probably was about time I read Now That I've Found You and I'm really impressed you managed to pick me the one paperback from that selection. It's almost as though you are making me make up for lost time and read the physical books regardless!
Below is my initial theory for this feature, and then a bit further, what you are all waiting for... This weeks's vote! Enjoy!
I am also awful at deciding what book to read next, as I often have about 10 titles or authors jumping into my brain at any time, shouting at me to read them, and I tend to worry I have made the wrong decision while reading a perfectly good book. I am hoping this will save me having to make at least 1 choice a week, while possibly providing a review to the site of a book you all either love or are curious about yourselves.
So what I am proposing, is my lovely loyal readers of Rachel's Random Reads, select one book for me to read a week, and I will post the review the following week.
This week's random numbers are...
And the books these numbers correspond to are...
So the 5 choices with my gut feeling responses are:
1 - Pendulum by Adam Hamdy - This is one of those books that I keep being tempted by, but never quite picking up to start reading. Would love to know other people's thoughts on it.
4 - The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes by Anna McPartlin - Now why is I think I'd need tissues with me while reading this one? I've heard nothing but good things about it.
32 - Stay Dead (Annie Carter Book 6) by Jessie Keane - Not read any of this series, but won book 6 in a giveaway a few months back. Hoping its good!
42 - Upside Down by Lia Riley - How many times has this one now popped up and not been picked. Random.org is determined that I read this book, but no one else appears to have heard of it! I know its a romance and the first in a trilogy that I have all 3 of.
66 - Somebody to Love by Sheryl Browne - Well I love this author, really do need to read the other books I have by her!
I really like the look of this weeks picks, I suspect I'll be very happy reading whatever is picked and I do have to wonder if it is finally Upside Down's turn to be read! Whatever you feel like picking for whatever reason, please take part, its only a bit of fun, and it really does help me out with my poor ability to make decisions!
Pick your favourite or the one you most want me to review, or just the one you are curious about, and leave me a comment below, before midnight on Wednesday.
I look forward to seeing what I will be reading over the weekend, courtesy of you all.
The explanation if you haven't seen the feature before.
How is this going to work?
Every Monday, I am going to have a post like this, which is going to have some choices on it. I am planning on using random.org to select 7 random numbers, to coincide with my spreadsheet of unread books.
I will from that produce a list of hopefully 5 books, I reserve the right to veto any books, and will give reasons for them, if it occurs.
I will take screenshots and post them, of the chosen books, and also give you my instinctive reactions to the choices (without checking blurbs or any other info about them, which could be interesting as there are probably many forgotten about books on my spreadsheet!).
Your task is to post a comment on this post, with the book you would like me to read this week. At midnight on Wednesday I will take a tally of the votes and the book with the most, I will read and review for the following Monday, where you will also get a new choice post.
In the event of a tie, I will chose which one appeals most, for the Monday review, and possibly try and read and review the other to appear when I can.
I am hoping this will provide some variety to the books appearing, and will let me potentially read or discover some great authors that I have wanted to read but not got around to yet.
