My TBR List, April 2018 – Week 1

Today is my first day participating in a meme called My TBR List, which I was introduced to during one of the Bloggiesta Twitter chats. It works like this:

  • 1st Saturday of the month – Make a post with three books from your TBR list for people to vote on.
  • 2nd Saturday of the month – Announce what book wins.
  • 3rd Saturday of the month – Nothing (reading the book).
  • 4th Saturday of the month – Review the book.

This seems like a really fun and social way to start attacking my massive TBR pile.

The three books that I’ve chosen for this month’s options have all been sitting on my shelf for a long time, and I’ve heard great things about all of them. Here are descriptions courtesy of Goodreads. Please vote below!

  • “The Ship Who Sang” by Anne McCaffrey – Helva had been born human, but only her brain had been saved and implanted into the titanium body of an intergalactic scout ship. But first she had to choose a human partner, to soar with her through the daring adventures and exhilarating escapades in space.
  • “Our Lady of the Ice” by Cassandra Rose Clarke – Hope City, Antarctica. The southernmost city in the world, with only a glass dome and a faltering infrastructure to protect its citizens from the freezing, ceaseless winds of the Antarctic wilderness. Within this bell jar four people–some human, some not–will shape the future of the city forever.
  • “Ancillary Justice” by Ann Leckie – On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest. Once, she was the Justice of Toren– a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy. Now, an act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with one fragile human body, unanswered questions, and a burning desire for vengeance.

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

  1. Ooo I haven’t read any of these books but they all sound brilliant! I vote for the Ship Who Sang 🙂 I hope you enjoy the winner! ox

  2. Anne McCaffrey! I keep wanting to read more by her. I haven’t read much of of her work. I really liked Ancillary Justice. I’m not familiar with Our Lady of the Ice, but that sounds great too. I hope you enjoy whichever wins! Have a great week!

  3. I voted for the Ship that Sang, but I seem to be the only one lol! It sounds fascinating. I hope you enjoy whichever book wins.

    Side note – what are you using for your voting? I just love the way it looks and works and totally want to use it!!

    1. Poll, survey, quiz, slideshow, & form builder by Opinionstage. 🙂

      And I’ll probably end up reading The Ship Who Sang at some point soon anyway, because Anne McCaffrey is one of my favorite sf writers.
