My March Random Reads Selection

Random Reads is a meme hosted by I'm Loving Books.  The idea is to select a book from our TBR piles - you know those stacks and/or lists that keep growing and growing, and growing.  We never seem to get to many of those books do we? - maybe a few, then something else catches our eye!!. Well, the blog author came up with a way to select a book from our TBR list (or any other list we have) on Goodreads - using

So, I did my random selection.  I currently have 659 books on my to-read list, so I entered that into the random selector and this is what I got:

On my Goodreads list, #418 is:
Unfortunately, I have not read book #1 or #2 in this series, so I am going to have to read at least #1 this month. ( It is also on my list as part of the 659.)

That means for this month, I my Random Reads Selection is:

Gone by Michael Grant
Summary:  From the co-creator of the bestselling "Animorphs" comes a gripping new series in which everyone disappears in an flash on their 14th birthday. It's a terrifying new world, and time is running out.

What will your Random Read for March be?


  1. My response to this was "Umm, K.A. Applegate wrote Animorphs. I'll just look up Michael Grant on Wikipedia. OMG he's K.A. Applegate's husband and co-author!" Haha. But the books are published under only her name, I guess 'cause she's the primary author. You learn something new every day!

    As for Gone, I have to wonder... where do the babies come from? It sounds like Logan's Run, but very YA. :P

    1. Thanks for sharing that. I find I am learning something new all the time since starting this blog. I would have missed out on so much had I not started blogging!

      Good question - where do they come from? Hopefully it comes put in the novel!

  2. I didn't know Gone was from the author of Animorphs, I remember reading the first 5 books when I was around 14, really fun. Also another thing I didn't know was that Gone had characters younger than 14 years old, I remember the story but I always thought it'd be with 16 years-old or something.
    Anyways, I hope you enjoy reading it.

  3. I have never read any of the Animorphs books. I have bought them for my students though.

    I am really looking forward to Gone!

    1. I have every single Animorphs book. The used book store owners told me I'd never accomplish it. :P

  4. I haven't read this series, but apparently is amazing!

  5. I haven't read this series either but I want to! I hope you enjoy it :)

  6. Ohh I've had my eye on this series for awhile. I hope you enjoy it! :)
