Pick It For Me : Intro and March 2015

So a common feature of many booktuber's is something called the TBR jar. This is a jar in which you place little strips of paper that have an unread book title on it and at the start of each month you pull out one of the pieces of paper and whatever book is written on it you read. I love this idea but having tried it before, I realised that as an impulse reader it's quite hard to do. After a while, you have accumulated a lot of little pieces of paper with book titles you have already read written on them.

Instead, I have decided to do a virtual one. Ish. At the start of each month, I'm going to post one of these and give three books from which you can choice one of my reads for the month. This will mean they are still valid, and will mean I get to read a book recommended to me by you.

So, without further ado here is the March choices.

In March, I would like to read one of these mystery novels.

Elise is dead.
And someone must pay.

Anna, her boyfriend Tate, best friend Elise and a group of close friends set off on a debaucherous Spring Break trip to Aruba. But paradise soon turns into a living nightmare when Elise is brutally murdered.

Soon Anna finds herself trapped in a foreign country and fighting for her freedom. As she awaits the judge's decree, it becomes clear that everyone is questioning her innocence. To the rest of the world, Anna isn't just guilty, but dangerous. As the court case unfolds the truth is about to come out, and it's more shocking than you could ever imagine...

Deepdean School for Girls, 1934. When Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong set up their very own deadly secret detective agency, they struggle to find any truly exciting mysteries to investigate. (Unless you count the case of Lavinia's missing tie. Which they don't, really.) But then Hazel discovers the Science Mistress, Miss Bell, lying dead in the Gym. She thinks it must all have been a terrible accident - but when she and Daisy return five minutes later, the body has disappeared. Now the girls know a murder must have taken place . . . and there's more than one person at Deepdean with a motive. Now Hazel and Daisy not only have a murder to solve: they have to prove a murder happened in the first place. Determined to get to the bottom of the crime before the killer strikes again (and before the police can get there first, naturally), Hazel and Daisy must hunt for evidence, spy on their suspects and use all the cunning, scheming and intuition they can muster. But will they succeed? And can their friendship stand the test?

An outrageous plot of villainy starring seven brilliant young girls.

At Prickwillow Place, Disgraceful Mary Jane, Smooth Kitty and their fellow students are keeping a deadly secret.

When the headmistress of St Etheldreda's School for Young Ladies drops dead at Sunday dinner, her seven pupils agree on a clever scheme: to bury their teacher in the vegetable garden, dress up Stout Alice in her place, and educate themselves. This is tricky enough in a small Victorian community, but when the girls deduce that their teacher was poisoned - (it was the veal!) - they realise there is also a murderer on the prowl . . .

So those are the books. Comment to vote for which book I should read. I'll check again in a week's time to see what I will be reading next. I know two of these are written for a slightly younger audience but I like the sound of all three. I hope you like this idea and I'll see you next week sometime!
