This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
So I flirted around with a couple of different ideas about how to decide which book to talk about this week. I tried looking at ratings and dates, but eventually I just decided to go with what audiobooks I have on my TBR and this ended up being a good one to choose. I have a few audiobooks that I own, that I haven’t listened to and I decided that it was a good time to whittle down this list a bit. I think this might end up being my next listen. I am getting into a mood for a good science fiction story. It is also a finished series which is good, no waiting for the next book!
This Mortal Coil by Emily Suveda
Publication Date: November 7, 2017
Summary from Goodreads:
When a lone soldier, Cole, arrives with news of Lachlan Agatta’s death, all hope seems lost for Catarina. Her father was the world’s leading geneticist, and humanity’s best hope of beating a devastating virus. Then, hidden beneath Cole’s gene-hacked enhancements she finds a message of hope: Lachlan created a vaccine.
Only she can find and decrypt it, if she can unravel the clues he left for her. The closer she gets, the more she finds herself at risk from Cartaxus, a shadowy organization with a stranglehold on the world’s genetic tech. But it’s too late to turn back.
There are three billion lives at stake, two people who can save them, and one final secret that Cat must unlock. A secret that will change everything.
