Down The TBR Hole #15

Top Ten Tuesday(92)

This was “created” by Lost in a Story!

The Rules:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Check out my other editions of “Down The TBR Hole” here.

I really loved “Midwinterblood” it was the perfect kind of weird and I want to read more of Sedgwick’s books.

Once again, Marcus Sedgwick. I heard good things about this one and it’s short.

Book #142

The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent

Date Added: August 4th, 2015

This one is a dystopian with soul-sucking demons, it sounds awesome and I got a copy really cheap from Book Outlet so I’m excited to read it. Eventually.

Book #143

The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma

Date Added: August 4th, 2015

A magical realism/paranormal story that I feel will be odd but in a good kind of way, I hear Nova Ren Suma’s writing is very unique!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #144

Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

Because who doesn’t love a good circus book? Plus I have heard a lot of good things.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #145

Under A Painted Sky by Stacey Lee

Date Added: August 6th, 2015

A YA western featuring a Chinese main character, of course I want to read it! Plus I’ve heard tons of good things about it.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #146

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

Date Added: August 7th, 2015

I basically HAVE to keep any and all Brandon Sanderson books on my TBR, there is no negotiating with myself on this.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #147

Archivist Wasp by Nicole Kornher-Stace

Date Added: August 12th, 2015

This seems like a wonderfully strange book, about a girl who hunts ghosts and ventures to the underworld to hunt one and to learn more about the pre-apocalyptic world. It really does sound fantastic!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #148

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Date Added: August 13th, 2015

Image result for rebel belle book cover

Honestly I didn’t think this would be a book I’d ever want to read but it sounds like so much fun with all of the gowns and tiaras but also the badassery. Hopefully it’s as light-hearted and fun as it sounds!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #149

The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons

Date Added: August 13th, 2015

Image result for the glass arrow book cover

This sounds like it would be an okay read especially since it’s compared to “The Handmaid’s Tale” but with the mixed reviews and my lost interest I think I’m going to have to get rid of it.

The Judgement: Go

    I’m glad you’re keeping Rebel Belle, I read it last year (or the year prior) and it was adorable in a not too cringey way. The audiobook is pretty awesome cause she has a southern accent too!

    This is a great idea! I totally need to do this. I have so many books on my TBR that I need to go through.

    i absolutely love this meme! i’ve read one of simmons’ other series and cannot say that it worth reading. the other stacey lee book i read, though, was beautifully written so Under the Painted Sky is on my tbr too.

      Good to know I’m probably not missing out on much then! I’ve heard lots of great things about Under the Painted Sky and Lee’s writing in general so hopefully we both enjoy it! 🙂

    All of these sound quite interesting so I think you’ve made the right choice keeping them 🙂 A bit of an unproductive DTTH but hey, as long as you get some great reading done, it’s okay!

    The walls around us is a truly particular book but one I very much enjoyed reading. It certainly was memorable. I added archival wasp to me own ports for plunder list. It sounds fun and has an awesome title. I love these posts.

      Thanks! Yeah, I thought The Walls Around Us sounded like a bit of an odd book but so glad you loved it, I’m excited to try it! Also glad you found another book to add to your TBR! 🙂
