Pick It For Me Challenge: February 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!

Suzanne’s pick for Annie…

Pick It For Me Challenge: February 2018
Touch the Dark
Book Info

Released: June 6, 2006
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Series: Cassie Palmer #1
 

Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits—talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead. The ghosts of the dead aren’t usually dangerous; they just like to talk…a lot.
The undead are another matter.

Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires. But when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she’s forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

The undead senators won’t help her for nothing, and Cassie finds herself working with one of their most powerful members, a dangerously seductive master vampire—and the price he demands may be more than Cassie is willing to pay....

Francesca’s pick for Suzanne…

Pick It For Me Challenge: February 2018
Poison Princess
Book Info

Released: October 2, 2012
Genre: Young Adult
Series: Arcana Chronicles #2
 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces The Arcana Chronicles, post-apocalyptic tales filled with riveting action, the dark mysticism of Tarot cards, and breathtaking romance.

She could save the world--or destroy it.
Sixteen year old Evangeline"Evie" Greene leads a charmed life--until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, killing everyone she loves, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future--and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.

But she can't do either alone.
With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can't totally trust Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?

Who can Evie trust?
As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it's not always clear who is on which side...

In Poison Princess, New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces a dark and intriguing world, full of unspeakable danger and irresistible romance.

Annie’s pick for Francesca…

Pick It For Me Challenge: February 2018
Because of Miss Bridgerton
Book Info

Released: March 29th 2016
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: Bridgertons #9
Published by Avon
Pages: 384
 

There were Bridgertons before the eight alphabetically named siblings, and in this first of a new prequel series, New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn goes back to where it all began

Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places...
This is not one of those times.

Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband... someday.

Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should...
Or not.

There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest heir to the earldom, but he’s arrogant, annoying, and she’s absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can’t stand the sight of him, either.

But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor...

Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can’t abide is the one person they can’t live without...
