Down The TBR Hole #32

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!

(I hit a patch of good books here in this post today! I own a majority of these so I probably won’t be getting rid of as many as I’d want to!)

Book #519
Survive The Night by Danielle Vega
Date Added: February 8th, 2017

I really like Vega’s Merciless series (only read the first 2 so far though) and this was a bargain book so I picked it up. Hopefully it will be a decent read, the cover is pretty so it will always have that going for it at least!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #520
Amity by Micol Ostow
Date Added: February 8th, 2017

I originally added this because it’s an Amityville retelling in YA form, but I just don’t think it’s going to end up being all that great of a read for me.

The Judgement: Go


Book #521
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Date Added: February 8th, 2017

Yeah, I’m definitely keeping this! Norse mythology AND Neil Gaiman? It’s like the perfect book for me!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #522
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
Date Added: February 11th, 2017

I actually went back and forth on this one a little bit since a lot of people didn’t like this one but it’s still Maggie Stiefvater so I’ll give it a shot. I’ll probably just borrow it from the library to be safe…

The Judgement: Keep


Book #523
My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, & Brodi Ashton
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I loved the first book “My Lady Jane” so I’m definitely going to continue with the series.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #523
My Calamity Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, & Brodi Ashton
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

Same as the above book, but I’m even more excited for this one since it’s about Calamity Jane!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #524
Origin by Jessica Khoury
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I loved Khoury’s “The Forbidden Wish” so much that I wanted to give one of her other books a try and one that takes place in the Amazon rain forest seemed like a good place to start!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #525
Tarnish by Katherine Longshore
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I have this because it’s Tudor related YA historical fiction, I don’t know why but I can’t stop adding Tudor YA books!

Book #526
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I’m so wary of this book and series, I have no clue if I’ll love it or hate it since that seems to be the case for everyone: loving it or hating it. I’ll at least give it a try and see where I weigh in.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #527
I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

This is a book about two friends and a webcomic, it seems like a cute and fun read.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #528
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

Another book that has mixed reviews but I’m a sucker for a sci-fi with a pretty cover.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #529
The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I’m not big on historical fiction, especially one that’s 600+ pages long.

The Judgement: Go


Book #530
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

A definite keeper, I’ve heard so many great things about it and it’s a book I’m sure I’ll love when I get to it.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #531
Mirage by Somaiya Daud
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

This is a diverse fantasy/sci-fi about a girl who must act as a cruel princess’s body double. Sounds amazing and I can’t wait for this to release!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #532
Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I’m here for the glittery cover and pirates.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #533
Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I got this when one of my local bookstore’s went out of business and I’m not quite sure what this book is supposed to be about since the synopsis seems purposefully vague. Still seems like a good read though!

Book #534
Wild Beauty Anna-Marie McLemore
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

Gorgeous cover and I hear gorgeous writing, I’m very excited to read McLemore’s books especially this one!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #535
The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

It’s quite literally about a library of fate but if I’m being honest I just like library themed books in general.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #535
Invictus by Ryan Graudin
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

The main character is the son of a time traveler and a gladiator, how can it not be awesome?! Also they’re sort of like time traveling pirates, which is even cooler!

The Judgement: Keep


Book #536
Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I just don’t think I’d enjoy this book a whole lot anymore.

The Judgement: Go


Book #537
The Unbinding of Mary Reade by Miriam McNamara
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I’m keeping this only because I have a copy on my Kindle and it’s about pirates, even though I’m not sure how good the story will be….

The Judgement: Keep


Book #538
First We Were IV by Alexandra Sirowy
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

Another book that the synopsis has me slightly confused, but in a good way. There’s mention of a blood moon, dancing, a meteorite, secrets, and finding a dead girl. So yeah, confusing but intriguing.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #539
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

Dragons! That is all.

The Judgement: Keep


Book #540
Game of Secrets by Kim Foster
Date Added: February 14th, 2017

I just don’t really have any interest in this one anymore.

The Judgement: Go
