What's Next #1

If you’re anything like me, you’ll know its very hard to choose your next read – particularly when you have a review/reading pile as big as your bed… or head.
With that thought in mind, What’s Next was born. What’s Next will be a weekly feature here on IceyBooks, and you can participate!
Here’s how it works (for those of you who want to participate):
-Every Thursday, starting tomorrow, select three-five books (not too many, not too little!) that you want to read but can’t decide which one to read first.
-Post the cover, and if you want, the synopsis or even a random line from the book, for each of your selections.
-At the end of your post, ask readers to vote on which one you should read next!


 These are all review books that i am trying to get through!

Anybody but him - Claire Baxter
A deliciously funny rom com from Random Romance. What happens when you fall in love with the man you hate?

Nicola Doyle's dating record is a disaster, and it doesn't improve when she returns to Redgum Valley, after an absence of twelve years, to look after her increasingly eccentric parents. There, she's thrown into regular contact with Blair Morrissey – the very reason she couldn't wait to leave town in the first place.

The decade-old scars are still raw from that humiliating day in high school – when Blair went from the boy she loved to the boy she hated.

Except Blair doesn't seem to be a ‘bad boy' any more – in fact, he's charming, infuriatingly helpful and extremely attractive.

If only Nicola could forgive and forget . 

Thoughts
This has been on my tbr forever, i even started it once its a netgalley book and i really am toying with the idea of reading it.

Vegas was her name - Jonathan Sturak

At the world's largest technology convention in Las Vegas, Michael Harris, CEO of a top engineering company, debuts Venus, a humanized computer brain that can predict human behavior. He attracts international attention, including the attention of Rachel, a steamy seducer who cons Michael by concealing a secret of her own. Melissa, Michael's wife, flies to Las Vegas to save her husband and her marriage as the events unfold in the shadows of the Las Vegas Strip

Thoughts
I was intially drawn to this, but the longer it has sat on my tbr pile, the less i have wanted to read it.




The Mine - John A Heldt
In May 2000, Joel Smith is a cocky, adventurous young man who sees the world as his playground. But when the college senior, days from graduation, enters an abandoned Montana mine, he discovers the price of reckless curiosity. He emerges in May 1941 with a cell phone he can't use, money he can't spend, and little but his wits to guide his way. Stuck in the age of Whirlaway, swing dancing, and a peacetime draft, Joel begins a new life as the nation drifts toward war. With the help of his 21-year-old trailblazing grandmother and her friends, he finds his place in a world he knew only from movies and books. But when an opportunity comes to return to the present, Joel must decide whether to leave his new love in the past or choose a course that will alter their lives forever. THE MINE follows a humbled man through a critical time in history as he adjusts to new surroundings and wrestles with the knowledge of things to come
