The basic gist of this activity is to have others help decide on which book out of three I'm selecting from my TBR pile I should read for the month via votes. Posts for voting, the winning book, and the final book review will go up on Saturdays.

So according to the masses, the book I will be reading for My TBRL this month is:
Size 14 Is Not Fat Either won with 10 out of 15 votes!
Last week, the books I had everyone vote on were:
Size 14 Is Not Fat Either by Meg Cabot -- Book 2 of Heather Wells series
Cover of Darkness by Kaylea Cross -- Book 2 of Suspense series
Almost Dead by Lisa Jackson -- Book 2 (final) of San Francisco series
So Size 14 won by a landslide and the other two couldn't even really catch up. To be honest, I was not exactly enamored with the first Heather Wells book, and while the writing was enjoyable at times and the voice was quite humorous, the main character had started getting a little irritating after a while. And the murder mystery had a ton of holes in it as well. But there was a quality to the book that made you want to keep reading.
After I read some reviews that the series DOES get better as it progresses, and as I don't completely dislike Heather Wells, I had decided to give the series another chance and continue on. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that I will enjoy this one, because, for other reasons, it's actually the book I was secretly hoping would win.
So yeah, this is the first book win wherein my personal, secret vote corroborated with the masses.
Again, thank you to everyone for voting!
