Down The TBR Hole #29

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 #447
Midnight at the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Date Added: December 14th, 2016

Definitely a keeper, I enjoy Anderson’s writing style and this seems like a really unique story with three alternating timelines and POVs!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #448
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
Date Added: December 24th, 2016

This reminds me a lot of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ which I think it’s inspired by but the cover is super gorgeous and I hear Mafi’s writing is too.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #449
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Date Added: December 14th, 2016

I just really don’t think the older YA dystopians are for me, even if they are super hyped and popular.

The Judgement: Go


Book #450
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Date Added: December 14th, 2016

Yeah, I’m not big on paranormal romances so I don’t know why I ever even added this.

The Judgement: Go


Book #451
The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
Date Added: December 14th, 2016

I hear so many good things about Chima’s books and being a fantasy fan I pretty much NEED to read this. (I also need to read “The Demon King”)

The Judgement: Keep


Book #452
Sabriel by Garth Nix
Date Added: December 14th, 2016

Another fantasy book I really need to read, it’s fantasy sooooo yeah.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #453
The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
Date Added: December 14th, 2016

Not interested anymore.

The Judgement: Go


Book #454
In Real Life by Cory Doctorow
Date Added: December 15th, 2016

This seems like a really cute graphic novel and it’s about video games so I’m sold.

The Judgement: Keep


Untitled design(66)


Book #455
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
Date Added: December 15th, 2016

I’m not big on contemporaries but I really would like to give Silvera’s books a try regardless.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #456
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Date Added: December 15th, 2016

Yeah, I love the TV show so I want to give the books a try.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #457
The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld
Date Added: December 15th, 2016

I hear so many good things about this and it seems like a really beautiful book. I’ll probably cry though….

The Judgement: Keep


Book #458
The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks
Date Added: December 23rd, 2016

One of the few fantasy books on my TBR that I just don’t think I’ll read anymore.

The Judgement: Go


Book #459
The School For Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
Date Added: December 25th, 2016

This seems really cute but also really neat, it’s about a school (as the title implies) that teaches heroes and villains essentially and the two main characters get swapped into the wrong schools.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #460
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Date Added: December 25th, 2016

This seems like another really beautiful yet emotional book, it’s about a woman who is convicted of two murders and must await her execution at a farm in northern Iceland.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #461
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
Date Added: December 25th, 2016

Another book with great reviews that seems like a slow but worthwhile read. It’s about a man who is reborn after every death with the knowledge of each life he lived previously.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #462
Wytches: Volume 1 by Scott Snyder
Date Added: December 25th, 2016

I mean, it’s a graphic novel about witches.

The Judgement: Keep


Untitled design(67)


Book #463
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Date Added: December 25th, 2016

Another book that’s on here because of all the recommendations and stellar reviews. It’s a sort of post-apocalyptic setting but not the type we are used to, and tells the story of a nomadic troupe of actors.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #464
Little Peach by Peggy Kern
Date Added: December 26th, 2016

This will be a tough book to read since it’s about child prostitution, but with all the great reviews I think it would be a book worth reading.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #465
Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas
Date Added: December 26th, 2016

Keeping this one because I have a feeling I’m going to love “Dangerous Girls”.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #466
Saint Death by Marcus Sedgwick
Date Added: December 26th, 2016

I like Sedgwick’s writing but I think this one can go for now.

The Judgement: Go


Book #467
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of of Ava Lavender
Date Added: December 26th, 2016

Zero interest in reading this one.

The Judgement: Go


Book #468
We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
Date Added: December 26th, 2016

I know a lot of people really loved this but I just don’t think it’s for me.

The Judgement: Go


Book #469
All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders
Date Added: December 26th, 2016

Pretty much the same feelings on this one as the previous book: I just don’t think it’s for me.

The Judgement: Go


Book #470
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
Date Added: December 26th, 2016

This seems like it has a very fairy tale-esque feel to it, I think I’ll borrow it from the library though because it also seems like it may be a bit slow. We shall see!
