TBR Pile Knockout #1

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

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

We will be posting EVERY Monday for the rest of the year. 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!
We'll be using random.org to pick our reads.
Type in the number of books in your TBR pile where it says "MAX"
Then click generate and it will give you your randomly selected book!
NOTE: If the book chosen via random.org is part of a series, you can go ahead and read the first book in said series.
2. Come back here each week (or however often you'd like to join in) and link up your "TBR Pile Knockout" post in the linky @ either of our lovely Hosts sites.

Don't know what to write in your post? You can Add the cover for your book, the book summary and details (author, publisher, etc.), you can leave a line or two on how long that book was sitting in your TBR Pile, or just tell us what you think about starting this one! You can always add in a review for your last pick too!

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 back at either of the host sites.

My pick was *drum roll please*

Dorina Basarab is a dhampir-half human, half vampire. Subject to uncontrollable rages, most dhampirs live very short, very violent lives. So far Dory has managed to maintain her sanity by unleashing her anger on those demons and vampires who deserve killing.

Now Dory's vampire father has come back into her life. Her Uncle Dracula (yes, the Dracula), infamous even among vampires for his cruelty and murderous ways, has escaped his prison. And her father wants Dory to work with gorgeous master vampire Louis-Cesare to put him back there.

Vampires and dhampirs are mortal enemies, and Dory prefers to work alone. But Dracula is the only thing on Earth that truly scares her, so when Dory has to go up against him, she'll take all the help she can get…

Now, I picked this book up a while ago, but because I didn't know how to say no to review request at that time, I never finish it. BUT is was not be it wasn't good, it really was. So, I'm really excited to start it again!

Let's get it started!



  1. Oh snaaap. Check you out! haha Thanks for joining in, Sharonda :) EEEKKK.. That book is on my shelf too! But, I was told to read another series first, so I won't be reading that baby :( I hope it's good, I heard some good things about it :)

  2. lol! I need to get some items off my Goodreads TBR list & I still have more to add as the ones there are mainly my paperbacks (I'm scared to look at my NOOK...lmbo!)

    Happy New Year Ana!

  3. LOL Sharonda I'm scared to look at my NOOK too!!! I never added those into my Goodreads and it's scary in there! ;) Hadn't heard of this one before but it sounds really interesting. Hope it's a good one! And thank ya for joining in!!!
