April Random Reads

April 8, 2013 Random Reads 5

I found this fun idea on I’m Loving Books. Sarah came up with the idea of picking one random book out of your Goodreads To-Read list (using Random.org) to read within the month. Check out her site for more details…Random Reads Meme – Hosted by ImLovingBooks.com

This sounded like a fun way to pick my next book, so I decided to go for it. Random.org chose book #38 for me, which happened to be The Power by L.J. Smith.  The only problem is that The Power is book #3 in The Secret Circle series and I haven’t read the first two books.  So, I decided to bend the rules just a little bit and read The Initiation (the first book in the series) instead.

The Initiation (The Secret Circle, #1)


I actually added this book to my To-Read list on April 1, 2012 because I was watching the TV Series on The CW. This peaked my curiosity about the books (since the books are always better than the shows, right?).  I obviously didn’t pay much attention when I added the books to my list, though, because it took me by surprise when I saw my Random.org choice and saw that The Secret Circle series was written in 1992!  Just take a look at the cheesy 90’s cover and it becomes pretty obvious, but I had no idea. But, don’t you worry – I’m never one to back down on a challenge.  After all, it’s all part of the fun of choosing a book at random. I’ll let you know how the book compares to the show. And I just might have to read the Vampire Diaries books too.  (Once again, I had NO idea they were so old!  But I LOVE The Vampire Diaries!).  So, stay tuned…

      I loved the show too, Sarah! Check out my review of the series – I really enjoyed it. It was different from the series in some ways, but still exceeded my expectations.

    The cover of “The Secret Circle” makes it look like it would have been a big hit in middle schools back in the day!
