TBR Pile Knockout: May's Pick


TBR Pile Knockout is hosted by Ana of Beach Bum Reads and Anna of Herding Cats & Burning Soup to tackle our HUGE and STILL GROWING TBR piles.

Here is some information about the meme copied from Anna's blog:
The 1st of each month we'll be posting our pick for the month with our goal is to make a rather nice dent in our TBR piles. So, aside from our other lovely reads, we will be making sure ONE book out of our TBR pile will be read :)
Want to join in? Check out the rules:

1. Go to your TBR pile and randomly pick one book off your list any way you want!

2. Come back here every month (or however often you'd like to join in) and link up your "TBR Pile Knockout" post in the linky below! [posts can include anything, cover, if you're excited about the pick, a review, etc]

Don't have a blog? You can still join in! Just link in your Goodreads reviews or add link the Amazon/B&N page for the book and leave your thoughts in a comment on this page :)

I came across this meme when I visited Anna's blog, and it sounds so much fun that I just had to join in!

I am a little late coming to the party this month, but I'm still hoping that I can squeeze in this month's pick.

I am so bad at reading books for MY OWN CHALLENGES! I have mountains of TBR piles, and I have hosted some of my own reading challenges as a way to motivate me to get to these books! Sadly, most of them are still unread :(

Here is my May Pick:

Blood Bound (Mercy Thompson, #2)

I have read Patricia Briggs' Alpha & Omega series and just loved it! I have hosted the Patricia Briggs Werewolf Challenge for the past couple of years because I wanted to read Briggs' sister series, Mercedes Thompson. I finally got around to listening to the first book in the series in March, and I really need to get on with the rest of the series!

Wish me luck!


If you want to join in, just click on the challenge badge at the beginning of this post to sign up at Anna's blog.


  1. Its a great series, enjoy!

  2. You're welcome, Thurman! Hope you join up as well!

  3. Ahhh I loved that series Darlene! I started with it and moved to Alpha & Omega. Still have the last 2 of that series to go. I hope you enjoy it!!

    Thanks for joining in this month :) Can't wait to hear what you think of this one!


    1. Thanks for hosting, Anna! Based only on the first book in Mercedes Thompson, I like Alpha & Omega series more but we shall see. I'll have a better opinion after I read the second book.
