Random Reads is a monthly meme hosted by Sarah at I’m Loving Books. This feature is to get us reading a random book within the month that is in our TBR stack.
It’s been a month or so since I’ve participated in Random Reads. This is because I haven’t been doing a lot of reading of late, and was two Random Reads picks behind, so I decided to forgo Random Reads in October in order to get the two books I’d already chosen and hadn’t read finished. In the end, I ultimately decided to DNF Her Highness, the Traitor, as I just really wasn’t feeling the story and duel narrations, and after devoting almost two months to it and only getting 100 pages in, figured it wasn’t much of a loss. I fared much better with The Smoke Thief by Shana Abe [review], which I thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely recommend, particularly to fans of historical paranormal romances.
Interested in participating in Random Reads? Here are the (super easy) directions:
- If you’re on Goodreads, enable sorting to your to-read shelf (you should see numbers next to each book now).
- Go to random.org and type in the Min as 1 and the Max as how ever many books are on your to-read shelf.
- Scroll down to the book matching the number random.org picks.
- Post and link up.
- Read and be merry.
Random.org selected #12 (out of 964) this month, which is:
I am actually really excited to give this one a read! It’s sort of a classic, particularly for lovers of fairy tales (I consider myself firmly in that camp), and has been on my to-read list since January 3, 2012, which was the day I joined Goodreads. Plus it’s short – only 240 pages – so shouldn’t take too much time to read, which is definitely a bonus considering my stupidly busy schedule!
