Down The TBR Hole #19

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 #208
Vengeful (Villains #2) by V.E. Schwab
Date Added: December 29th, 2015

I feel like I’ve been waiting forever, I mean 3 years isn’t too bad but it feels like forever! We are finally getting this book this year! FINALLY!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #209
Solutions & Other Problems by Allie Brosh
Date Added: January 8th, 2016

 I loved “Hyperbole & a Half” I was ecstatic when I heard there was going to be another book by Allie Brosh. BUT the pub date kept getting pushed back and now I think it’s been put on hold indefinitely, so basically I don’t think it’s going to happen anymore. If it does: great, but I’m done keeping this on my TBR because I don’t think it’s going to happen.

Book #210
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
Date Added: January 13th, 2016

I have a copy of this one already and still haven’t read it (shame on me). The cover is gorgeous and from what I’ve heard the writing is as well, I’m definitely keeping this one!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #211
The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude
Date Added: January 13th, 2016

I’m torn between keeping this one and getting rid of it because I’m not sure if I’d like it but I’m also not sure I wouldn’t like it. The cover is pretty and creepy and I think I’ll keep it for now…..

The Judgement: Keep


Book #212
Jackaby by William Ritter
Date Added: January 14th, 2016

I’m down for anything similar to Sherlock Holmes.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #213
Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows
Date Added: January 14th, 2016

Eh. Eh? I did want to get rid of this one but I’m always suckered back in by the promise of dragons and the fact that the main character suffers from anxiety. I think, if anything, I’d like to at least try and read this for the anxiety rep.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #214
Blood Red, Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick
Date Added: January 14th, 2016

I think I’ll get rid of this one for now, I have enough Sedgewick books on my TBR to get through so I really don’t need more.

The Judgement: Go


Book #215
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Date Added: January 14th, 2016

Well…of course I’m keeping anything by Laini Taylor.

Book #216
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Date Added: January 15th, 2016

Another keep, because I adored “Six of Crows”.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #217
Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh
Date Added: January 15th, 2016

I really, really like the idea of this book especially since it’s set in prehistoric times (which we almost never see) BUT it’s a Pride & Prejudice retelling and it’s mostly romance. I don’t like romance focused books so I don’t think this one is for me.

The Judgement: Go


Book #218
The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough
Date Added: January 18th, 2016

I ADORE the premise of this book: Love and Death picking their players throughout history and Death always wins. It sounds a lot like the movie “The Book of Life” if you’ve seen that (which is amazing).

The Judgement: Keep


Book #219
Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead
Date Added: January 18th, 2016

I thought I needed to read this but I really don’t…..Also judging by the cover I won’t like the art style.

The Judgement: Go


Book #220
This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers
Date Added: January 18th, 2016

I’ve heard good things about this book and kind of need to keep zombie books on my TBR…..I love zombie books.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #221
Black Iris by Elliot Wake
Date Added: January 18th, 2016

I’ve decided I’m not the biggest fan of NA books so I don’t really have a big interest in reading them.

The Judgement: Go


Book #222
The House by Christina Lauren
Date Added: January 26th, 2016

As I’ve said many times before I feel obligated to keep a lot of creepy YA books and this one seems like it’s slightly creepy so I’d like to at least TRY and read it.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #223
The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

I know that this book is “weird” and the writing and story aren’t for everyone just because of how hard it is to follow. Normally I would write this book off because I don’t have much patience for books that I can’t follow but it just sounds so interesting that I want to give it a shot.

Book #224
Rook by Sharon Cameron
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

Zero interest in this one anymore.

The Judgement: Go


Book #225
The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

This seems to have a ton of great reviews and I love a good YA thriller!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #226
Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

I kept a slightly creepy YA ghost story so I’ll pass on one as well, this one just seems like it won’t be as creepy as I want it.

The Judgement: Go


Book #227
Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

I adore retellings but Cinderella retellings aren’t really ones I seek out that often, and this one just seems like it would bore me.

The Judgement: Go


Book #228
After the End by Amy Plum
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

I really liked “Dreamfall” also by Amy Plum and this one is about a post apocalyptic world after WWIII left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. There are survivors though and after one member of the clan vanishes the main character sets off to find them and ends up discovering what she has been told is all a lie and there never was a war.

I love shockers like that.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #229
In The Woods by Tana French
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

I only added this because of how popular it is and I honestly don’t have an interest in it.

The Judgement: Go


Book #230
Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

I WAS going to get rid of this….but then I heard that it deals with depression and anxiety (which my boyfriend and I both have each) so I figured reading this book could help us both out, so I’ll keep it.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #231
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
Date Added: January 27th, 2016

I’ve heard mixed things on this book but I love fantasy so, so much so I think I’ll give it a shot.

The Judgement: Keep
