The Contestants

If I Break by Portia Moore
This is not your typical happily ever after... 

Lauren Brooks wants to do three things: Escape the small town she grew 
up in, get accepted to her dream school in Chicago, and graduate 
without drowning in debt. Now she’s working her ass off to do just 

With a full course load and a waitressing job at one of the hottest 
night clubs in Chicago, she does not have time for distractions;namely 
ones who only want to get into her pants. She’s been burned before. 
Only a fool goes for a second round... With just two semesters left 
until graduation, everything’s on track. 

Until she meets Cal. Enter distraction. 

At six-foot-two, with ebony hair, deep grey eyes, and a smile that 
could only hide an agenda, she knows he’s trouble. And for the first 
time in her life, a little trouble might be just what she needs. 

No. What she wants. 

It isn't like she’d ever marry the guy. 
Until she does. 

What she thinks will be her happily ever after, is only the beginning. 
Cal has a secret. One that makes loving him come with a price, and 
being his wife cost more than she bargained for.

Shattered Rose by Tammy L Gray 
Avery Nichols knows how to wear the mask. Perfect student, perfect daughter and perfect friend. Nobody would ever guess that inside Avery is a prisoner to her own self loathing. 

Then she meets him…and everything changes. 

Handsome, charming and self assured, Jake Matthews sweeps Avery off her feet in an effortless fashion. Avery knows that Jake is everything she needs and all she has ever wanted. 

She would destroy herself to be loved by him…until he walks away. 

Broken and lost, Avery meets Parker. His genuine, caring nature reaches past the mask and the shattered pieces of her heart slowly begin to heal. But just when Avery starts to feel whole again, she faces the impossible truth. 

Jake never really left. 

Planet Urth by Jennifer Martucci
More than two hundred years into the future, human beings are an endangered species. The planet has been battered by war, its inhabitants plagued by disease and death. Few humans survived and remained unaffected. Most changed dramatically and evolved into something else entirely. Irrevocable alterations caused by chemical warfare have created a new species. North America is in ruins and has been overtaken. Humanity has fallen at the hands of mutants known as Urthmen. 

Seventeen year-old Avery is alive and unchanged. But she has not been immune to the harshness of the new world. She has lived on the run for much of her life, in terror. 

After losing her father, Avery is the sole guardian of her eight-year-old sister, June. Avery is now charged with June’s safety as well as her own, a nearly impossible task. 

Forced to hide deep in the forest and away from the cities overrun by Urthmen, Avery and her sister are constantly hunted. Danger awaits them at every turn. They fear they are the only human beings left, that they are the last of their kind. 

But are they truly alone? 

So those are the choices. What do you think? Do you have any of them in your tbr list?

Create your own user feedback survey

Like to join the fun? Here's how it works.

Each month you will make a post with three books from your TBR List (these books can be already on your kindle or shelf or books you might want to purchase) and add your link on the linky that will be provided on Because Reading post.

Your followers and the people on the linky will help you choose which book you will read next.

The following Saturday you will announce the book that won. Then read the book.

On the last Saturday of the month post a review (with an optional giveaway, Michelle at Because Reading does this sometimes just for fun but you don’t have to).

The Rules

Ex. Lets say its September…
The first Saturday is the 6th – your post will go up with the 3 books you choose (as stated above these books can be already on your kindle or shelf or books you might want to purchase) and then link it to the linky on Because Reading blog.
     Her post will go up at 5am est. Make sure your link your post back to it in order to have your followers        visit other people’s blogs to help vote if they want.

     You can do the Polling however you would like. Survey Monkey, it has a good one and it’s free (here is        an EXAMPLE of Michelle's post). You can set it up and say whatever you would like – it’s totally up to        you. All this is asked is that you link back to Because Reading.

The second Saturday is the 13th – this is the day you announce which book won and whatever else you would like.
     (here is an EXAMPLE of Michelle's post). Her post will have a linky, so we can all easily see what                everyone will be reading.

The third Saturday is the 20th– you don’t have to post anything

The fourth (and/or last) Saturday is the 27th– this is when your review will go up regardless of how you liked the book.
     Please note even if you didn’t finished it just write a small post about how you felt about the book.                Michelle don’t write DNF reviews, but she does for this feature so followers can see what she thought          about the book they picked.

Some months have 4 weeks and some have five so a post always has to go up the First and Second Saturday and the last Saturday of the month

The final review post will also have a linky on it so you can link up your reviews and we can see what you thought of the book that was picked. This will draw some views to your blog and maybe find some new friends along the way.

*If you would like to would like to support this blog consider purchasing your books from the links provided. Thank you for stopping by. Comment, Share and Happy Reading!


  1. I like the sound of Planet Urth. I hope you enjoy which ever one wins :)
