I don’t know if I’ll ever actually get around to reading this but I’ll keep it for now since I own it. Plus I really loved “The Shining”!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #121

The Gift by James Patterson

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

I did enjoy “Witch and Wizard” when I read it AGES ago but I don’t really think I want to continue with the series anymore.

Book #122

Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

Are you guys seeing a pattern here in this patch of my TBR? Series I started and won’t be finishing because I just didn’t really think “Divergent” was that great.

The Judgement: Go


Book #125

The Name of Stars by Maureen Johnson

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

Image result for the name of the stars book

A sort of retelling of Jack the Ripper including a girl who can essentially see ghosts, at least that’s what it sounds like! It sounds interesting and I own a copy so I’d like to see if it’s any good.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #126

Death Troopers by Joe Schreiber

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

Image result for death troopers book

I love Star Wars and I love zombies but I just don’t know about this one anymore. Maybe I’ll read it eventually or maybe not but for now meh.

The Judgement: Go


Book #127

I, Iago by Nicole Galland

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

Image result for i iago

I freaking love “Othello” it is by far my favorite Shakespeare play and Iago is one of my absolute favorite villains. So of course I’d love to read anything related to the play!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #128

Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance by Oliver Bowden

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

Image result for assassin's creed renaissance book

I really love the Assassin’s Creed games especially the Ezio ones and so I kind of wanted the book but I just don’t think I’ll read it. I’d rather go play the game!

The Judgement: Go


Book #129

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

Image result for the coldest girl in coldtown

I tried reading this a really long time ago and just wasn’t very intrigued by it, I just don’t think Holly Black’s writing is for me. Although I will be trying “The Cruel Prince” because the hype is ridiculous.

      That’s good to hear about Doctor Sleep, no one ever mentions it really so I’ve just been completely in the dark on that one. I did like “The Shining” a lot though so hopefully one day I’ll continue! 🙂

    I definitely agree with Insurgent, as for the others I can’t really say because I haven’t read them. Some of them I’ve never even heard of.

      Glad I got rid of Insurgent then, quite a few other people have said the same thing on here. It would seem that I made a good choice there, haha! 🙂

        Yeah, it really wasn’t the greatest series.

    You’re saving yourself by not reading the next Divergent book. The last book in the trilogy was a total mess 😛

    More purging! I also Name of the Star as one I still want to read; that Jack the Ripper story never gets old.

    I agree SO MUCH with you removing Insurgent. I honestly thought Divergent was fine, but I HATED books 2 and 3. I thought they were just awful, and Veronica Roth butchered Tris’ character. 😦 I was a little sad to see the Holly Black book go, but I do hope you enjoy The Cruel Prince! I literally just finished it a few hours ago and loved it. I love all of the authentic lore she weaves into her stories, though I could see how her writing voice wouldn’t be for everyone!

      Almost everyone has been saying that about Insurgent so I must have made the right choice, haha, and I thought Divergent was okay as well but if the books get worse I definitely don’t want to continue! I really want to read The Cruel Prince with all of the hype and I have a feeling I’ll like it more because it’s fairies and not vampires like with Coldest Girl in Coldtown. 🙂

    Your definitely not missing much with Insurgent; I literally had to force myself to finish the series, it really wasn’t good! I really liked the movies though and thought they were way better 😊

      I’m saved then, haha! It’s actually really funny because everyone has commented on this post saying the same thing so now I’m REALLY glad I’m not going to read it! I did watch the first movie and liked it so if the movies are better I might just stick with those! 🙂

        Yay – I really think it is something that will be right up your alley, but the movies are a great second choice 🌸

    I also didn’t enjoy The Coldest Girl in Coldtown as much, but I loved The Cruel Prince!! Holly Black’s writing personally isn’t for me either, but her world-building for The Cruel Prince was AMAZING (plus the intriguing storyline, with a bunch of plot twists you don’t see coming!!) If you ever decide to pick it up, I hope TCP lives up to the hype ❤

      Thank goodness! I’ve honestly been pretty worried about trying The Cruel Prince because I couldn’t get into her other books so that’s such a relief you felt the same way and still enjoyed it! I’m a sucker for great world building so I’m sold! Thank you! 🙂
