Pick It For Me Challenge: January 2018

If you’ve been following us for some time, you may remember our monthly Pick It for Me challenges on our GoodReads group.  We always had a lot of fun doing them but had to stop them some time ago.  Recently, we were trying to push books on each other and decided to bring this back in a modified way.  Each month one of us girls at UTC will pick a random book for another one to read.  The next month, we will do a mini review and give you guys the opportunity to win one of those three books.  Check out the giveaway at the end of this post!  Feel free to follow along and read one of these three as well this month!

1814 promises to be another eventful season, but not, This Author believes, for Anthony Bridgerton, London's most elusive bachelor, who has shown no indication that he plans to marry. And in all truth, why should he? When it comes to playing the consummate rake, nobody does it better...

--Lady Whistledown's Society Papers, April 1814

But this time the gossip columnists have it wrong. Anthony Bridgerton hasn't just decided to marry--he's even chosen a wife! The only obstacle is his intended's older sister, Kate Sheffield--the most meddlesome woman ever to grace a London ballroom. The spirited schemer is driving Anthony mad with her determination to stop the betrothal, but when he closes his eyes at night, Kate's the woman haunting his increasingly erotic dreams...

Contrary to popular belief, Kate is quite sure that reformed rakes to not make the best husbands--and Anthony Bridgerton is the most wicked rogue of them all. Kate's determined to protect her sister--but she fears her own heart is vulnerable. And when Anthony's lips touch hers, she's suddenly afraid she might not be able to resist the reprehensible rake herself...

Nemesis (n.)
1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome;
2) A person’s undoing;
3) Joshua Templeman.
Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.

HARRY DRESDEN — WIZARD

Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he's the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the "everyday" world is actually full of strange and magical things—and most don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a—well, whatever. There's just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks.

So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry's seeing dollar signs. But where there's black magic, there's a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry's name. And that's when things start to get interesting.

Magic - it can get a guy killed.

Definitely Year One by Nora Roberts

Sophia Rose

Oh, not bad. You all came away with at least like for your December reads. I’ve only read the Maria Harte, but was iffy on the heroine, too. I’ve got the Nora Roberts and can’t wait. You sounds properly creepy and different so I’d give that one a go, too. Nice line-up for January and I look forward to getting your thoughts on those.

Love when I see more people reading Butcher. He is one of my all time favorite authors. I have all the books in Dresden Files (including the hard to find Backup) on my keeper shelf. If you like him you need to try Kevin Hearne.

Ohhh I’ve been meaning to read Hearne since hearing him speak at a panel at NY Comic Con. His series sounded so interesting! And then I keep pushing it back and not reading it. I may have to rectify that.
