I know what you're thinking "Jesus Becky ANOTHER feature?" but I really enjoy getting involved with the book blogging community and I think that the features are one of the best ways to! So, this feature was created by Icey Books in order to help book bloggers to chose what books that they read next by getting their readers to vote on it! So, that is exactly what I am going to do! Obviously, I don't expect loads of votes because I'm a fairly new blog but I just wanted to get you readers more involved in what you wanted to see! So, I have just started reading two new ones, one that has been sent for review and one that was one of my birthday gifts (haul coming soon) and I wanted to get this up now so that I had at least one vote when I had finished! These books are all part of the Bookish Bingo reading challenge hosted by Great Imaginations that I have decided to take part in, so go check that out too!

Option 1: An Abundance of Katherines by John Green


Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart 
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun--but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.


Option 2: Burial Rites by Hannah Kent



A brilliant literary debut, inspired by a true story: the final days of a young woman accused of murder in Iceland in 1829. 

Set against Iceland's stark landscape, Hannah Kent brings to vivid life the story of Agnes, who, charged with the brutal murder of her former master, is sent to an isolated farm to await execution. 

Horrified at the prospect of housing a convicted murderer, the family at first avoids Agnes. Only Tóti, a priest Agnes has mysteriously chosen to be her spiritual guardian, seeks to understand her. But as Agnes's death looms, the farmer's wife and their daughters learn there is another side to the sensational story they've heard. 


Option 3: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak



It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery.

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids - as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.

This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.

  2. I'm a firm believer that you can never have too many features. They're so much fun! But man do I feel you. I'm constantly creating new features or participating in new ones so I understand. And I suggest reading The Book Thief because it is FANTASTIC. Wasn't too big a fan of Abundance of Katherines honestly but I know a lot of people enjoyed it so don't take my word for it! But yeah... read The Book Thief.
