I am crying! Man the voting was tight and I am hating it LOL. These are book series that I have started and loved but it is all fair because I really do not have the time to read everything. So sadly I am having to get rid of a lot of books on my list….. well the results are in.
See how tight it is! So in the fairness, I am looking at the top 2 because it is so tight, which means I keep one series! I mean I wanted to keep them all but I am being a good girl and if I ever get time (IF) I know where I need to pick them up from LOL
Ok, so what do I have for you this week? I may boycott the results with one book…. #justsaying. Plus must admit some of these are I want to re-read.

You wake in the dark, gagged and bound. A man visits you, feeds you. And tells you that he will kill you - just like all the rest.

Darkly Dreaming Dexter (Dexter, #1) by Jeff Lindsay
Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep's clothing.
He's handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules.
He's a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people.
And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims.
But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened-of himself or some other fiend.

"I live for you," I say sadly.
Eo kisses my cheek. "Then you must live for more."
Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations.

But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity already reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.

He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society's ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies... even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

Also by this author: UR, In the Tall Grass
In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair.
Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes.
In another part of town, months later, a retired cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the unsolved crime.
When he gets a crazed letter from someone who self-identifies as the “perk” and threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement, hell-bent on preventing another tragedy.
Brady Hartsfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the house where he was born. He loved the feel of death under the wheels of the Mercedes, and he wants that rush again. Only Bill Hodges, with two new, unusual allies, can apprehend the killer before he strikes again. And they have no time to lose, because Brady’s next mission, if it succeeds, will kill or maim thousands.
