Random Reads: August 2014

Random Reads

Random Reads is a meme where we pick a random book from our shelf to read within the month.

Weeeee! This meme sounds like a lot of fun and is something I think I really need! My TBR mountain is out of control!! So here is what I did, I went to and chose two numbers: one e-book and one physical copy from my own-to-read shelf, and here are the random books that I got:

The E-Book:

On my shelf since Feb. 2, 2012! This was a freebie from Amazon.

Become (Desolation #1)
Become (Desolation #1) by Ali Cross

Blurb: Sixteen-year old Desolation Black wants nothing more than to stay in Hell where it’s cold and lonely and totally predictable. Instead, she’s sent back to Earth where she must face the evil she despises and the good she always feared.

When Desi is forced to embrace her inner demon, she assumes her choice has been made—that she has no hope of being anything other than what her father, Lucifer, has created her to be. What she doesn’t count on, is finding a reason to change—from something she’s never had before—a friend.

The Hardcover/Paperback:

On my shelf since Aug. 30, 2011! This signed copy was a gift from one of my friends when I couldn't make it to the signing.

Velveteen by Daniel Marks

Blurb: Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that’s not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it’s not a fiery inferno, it’s certainly no heaven. It’s gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn’t leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what’s really on her mind.


Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she’s figured out just how to do it. She’ll haunt him for the rest of his days.

It’ll be brutal... and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen’s obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she’s willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can’t help herself when it comes to breaking rules... or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

I'm so excited to start this new meme and tackle my TBR pile! I just hope I didn't bite off more than I can chew by choosing two books instead of one, LOL. Oh well ;) We'll see how it goes!


  1. Hooray! I'm so glad you decided to join in the fun! And both of these are on my tbr, so I can't wait to see your thoughts. :D

    1. Me too! I am very excited to do this! :D So thank you for introducing me to this awesome meme! :D

  2. Hmmmm, I think this would be a good feature to add to the blog now and then, to get some of those books that are overlooked otherwise!
    Hope you'll love both!

    1. Right? That's what I really liked about this feature! I'm hoping it will encourage me to FINALLY read all those books i buy but haven't read yet, lol.


Thanks for the comments! And if you'd like, leave me a link to your site so I can visit! :)
