t’s time for my July Random Read (a fun meme hosted by I’m Loving Books). The idea is to pick one random book out of your Goodreads To-Read list (using Random.org) to read within the month.
As I’ve mentioned before, I am in love with this meme! This is such a great way to make sure that you actually read some of those books that have been in your TBR list for eons.
Last month’s random pick was The New Hunger by Isaac Marion, a novella prequel to Warm Bodies. (Click on the link to read my review.) I wasn’t that enthusiastic about reading it at first, but I actually ended up liking it even more than I liked the original book. See, good thing Random.org told me to read it!
This month’s winner is…
#75 – Thorn Queen by Richelle Mead
Actually, this was my second randomly-chosen book. The first was a book that isn’t going to be published until December, so I had to try again!
When I first saw that Thorn Queen was chosen for me this month, I thought, “Hmmm… I don’t think I’ve read the first book in this series.”
But, when I checked it out further, I found that I had, indeed, read it. The first book was called Storm Born, and I honestly don’t remember all that much about it except that it was just ok for me. But, since then I’ve read quite a few books by Richelle Mead that I’ve loved, so I’m definitely willing to give this series another try.
