Random Reads: September 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!! I had a lot of fun with this meme last month so I decided to join in again.

Here are the books I read for the month of August:

Become (Desolation #1) Velveteen

Become was a little bit of a miss for me... I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would =/ Velveteen, on the other hand, pretty darn awesome! :D [Reviews to come]

So for my Random Reads, I decided to choose 2 books: A hardcover/paperback book, and an e-book. I went to and chose two numbers for each book, both from my own-to-read shelf, and here are the random books that I got:

The E-Book:

On my shelf since Feb. 2012! This one was an Amazon freebie!

Intrigue (Night Muse #1)
Intrigue (Night Muse #1) by Stacey Rychener

Blurb: Amid the 80,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit, a battle shrouded in secrecy is brewing. The Greek Olympian, Ares, runs the city as his own personal Coliseum while Apollo and Hermes struggle to shield teens from his deadly hobbies. Ares endless supply of gladiators is all the more accessible because the abandoned buildings of Detroit have become the flame for moths of ravers, vandals, scavengers, and urban explorers. The key to the entire conflict, Calliope, is just hoping for a fresh start now that her lifelong crush has finally noticed her. Although hoping for a fresh start in Detroit, is like saying you’re going to Las Vegas in search of true love. She soon catches the notice of one of the Immortals that recognizes her for what she is: a Night Muse. A Muse is a human that carries the soul of an Olympian within her, which gives the god immense power. Until Calliope reaches adulthood and awakens as a Bright Muse, there is no way to determine who her soul mate is. The Immortals start to draw Calliope and the people she loves into a deadly chess match. With her best friend’s life at stake, Calliope must seize control of her destiny and eliminate the deadly threat herself.

Funny thing about these random picks... they are both Greek mythology! YAY! :D I've had the Percy Jackson book for a while now, and I've leafed through it a couple of times and it looks like a lot of fun! It has a couple of puzzles and games PLUS short stories! Yes please! Anyway, can't wait to get a start on both of these!

Let me know if you are joining this meme and/or if you have read any of these books! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
