TGIF Weekly 30

T . G. I. F.  Weekly   

Here,  YOU, the reader get to help me pick out my upcoming reads and reviews.  Vote  for  what book you want to see a review for by leaving a comment stating your desire out of the 3 choices.  Most voted on by Tuesday will be posted between Wednesday and Friday (before the next TGIF post).  I might even post more than 1 review for these depending on how many vote and on what other posts I have set up (especially other reviews).  Also past books (if not reviewed) may come up in future TGIFs. 

 Also I have a poll up on the right column to vote for my upcoming reads.   Last chance to vote before I change it over for March.  The more votes the higher the chances of that book being read sooner and the higher the chances of a review soon. I will change the books listed for the polls every couple weeks so be on the lookout for changes to the list.  Old books may remain until read but this way I can hopefully better cater to reader's interest. :) 

The last pick:

Prep School Confidential (Prep School Confidential, #1)In this breathtaking debut that reads like Gossip Girl crossed with Twin Peaks, a Queen Bee at a blue-blooded New England prep school stumbles into a murder mystery.

Anne Dowling practically runs her exclusive academy on New York’s Upper East Side—that is, until she accidentally burns part of it down and gets sent to a prestigious boarding school outside of Boston. Determined to make it back to New York, Anne couldn't care less about making friends at the preppy Wheatley School. That is, until her roommate Isabella’s body is found in the woods behind the school.

When everyone else is oddly silent, Anne becomes determined to uncover the truth no matter how many rules she has to break to do it. With the help of Isabella’s twin brother Anthony, and a cute classmate named Brent, Anne discovers that Isabella wasn’t quite the innocent nerdy girl she pretended to be. But someone will do anything to stop Anne’s snooping in this fast-paced, unputdownable read—even if it means framing her for Isabella’s murder.
