Down The TBR Hole #16

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!

Book #150

Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Date Added: August 13th, 2015

I actually thought about getting rid of this one but I heard it’s a “Hades & Persephone” retelling and I NEED all of them that I can get so I’ll give this one ago. I actually got a signed copy off of Book Outlet so that’s neat!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #152

The Child Thief by Brom

Date Added: August 13th, 2015

Definitely keeping because I need all the Peter Pan retellings and especially if they’re dark and twisted versions!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #153

The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette de Bodard

Date Added: August 13th, 2015

The premise still sounds interesting if not a little confusing, but it’s got fallen angels I believe. However, I just don’t have any interest in trying to read it anymore.

The Judgement: Go

Book #154

Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith

Date Added: August 27th, 2015

I’m a little on the fence with this one but I’ll keep it for now because it seems like a good Halloween read!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #155

The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy

Date Added: August 31st, 2015

I already own a copy and I do like the sound of a book called “The Creeping”, I believe it’s a mystery thriller but I’m also hoping (as the title implies) that it is a little creepy as well!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #156

Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

Date Added: September 3rd, 2015

I absolutely loved “Anna Dressed in Blood” it’s really an amazing book so I’m excited to eventually read the sequel.

The Judgement: Keep

Book #157

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

Date Added: September 4th, 2015

I don’t really remember why I ever added this but I’m removing it now.

The Judgement: Go

Book #158

Blood & Salt by Kim Liggett

Date Added: September 24th, 2015

I’m so torn on this one because I love creepy books but it didn’t get the best reviews and I’m not sure if I really want to bother. I hate being disappointed so I think I’ll just get rid of it.

The Judgement: Go

Book #159

The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie

Date Added: September 24th, 2015

I don’t know if this one will disappoint me or not but I really cling to YA horror books on my TBR so I let one go this round and I’m keeping this one. I’m hoping it’s worth it!

    I love the cover of The House of Shattered Wings and was curious about it too a while back but, yeah, fallen angels and such don’t work for me either.

      Yep, I was suckered in by the cover but I feel like fallen angels were overdone back during the paranormal romance phase in YA so I just don’t need any more on my TBR!

      I don’t know why but for some reason I really love making people add books from my Down the TBR Hole posts because it’s all about getting rid of books and I think that’s funny. Glad you found a new one though and I’m down for any and all buddy reads because then I’ll ACTUALLY read them haha! 🙂

    I loved Pretty Girls, it was really good and I think it might be something that you’ll enjoy, Heather 🌸
