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?
