Whatโ€™s Nextย is a weekly feature hosted by IceyBooksย to help us a bloggers decide what to read next. Every Thursday, post three-five books you want/need to read but can’t decide which to read first.

Good Morning Readers!! Today I thought I’d join IceyBooks and let you choose my next read ๐Ÿ˜€ I really am having a hard time picking it out. My review TBR has grown to a large amount but so has my want/need to read pile ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are two need to reads and one want to read. Which should I read first?

Book Cover for Melt by Selene Castrovilla

Based on true events, MELT is both a chilling tale of abuse, and a timeless romance. MELT will hit you like a punch in the face, and also seep through the cracks in your soul.

MELT is a brutal love story set against the metaphorical backdrop of The Wizard of Oz (not a retelling). When sixteen year old Dorothy moves to the small town of Highland Park, she meets, and falls for Joey โ€“ a โ€œbad boyโ€ who tells no one about the catastrophic domestic violence he witnesses at home. Can these two lovers survive peer pressure, Joeyโ€™s reputation, and his alcoholism?

Told in dual first person, Joeyโ€™s words are scattered on the page โ€“ reflecting his broken state. Dorothy is the voice of reason โ€“ until something so shattering happens that she, too, may lose her grip. Can their love endure, or will it melt away?

Book Cover for Ice Country by David Estes

Dazz, a hard-edged, fun-loving Icer, likes fighting, particularly while at his favorite watering hole. However, while recovering from a particularly bad break up, his decision to engage in a brutal pubroom brawl leads to a series of events that thrust him into a dark and mysterious scandal involving King Goff, the ice country ruler.

When his sister is abducted in the dark of night, Dazz pledges to do whatever it takes to get her back, embarking on a quest that threatens to rip apart the very fabric that’s barely holding his shattered family together.

Along the way he meets a group of unlikely allies in the form of a travelling group of fire country natives. Can Dazz, when joined with his best friend, Buff, and new tan-skinned friends, defeat the King and his guards before it’s too late for his sister?


Book Cover for Black Venom by Tamara A Lowery


Mere Venoma Noir, the fourth Sister of Power, proves to be the most challenging yet for Viktor Brandewyne. She sets him to retrieve an amulet stolen by a notorious slave trader with a reputation for ruthlessness to rival Viktorโ€™s and a talent for black magic. She also possesses the power to turn the siren, Belladonna, against him, and the Sister will use every tool and opportunity she can to kill the pirate-turned-vampire before he can complete his quest.
