Book #150

Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Date Added: August 13th, 2015

Image result for everneath book cover

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

Image result for the child thief

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

Image result for lockdown book cover

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

Image result for the creeping book cover

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.

Book #158

Blood & Salt by Kim Liggett

Date Added: September 24th, 2015

Image result for blood and salt book cover

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!

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.

The Judgement: Keep


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

Date Added: August 5th, 2015

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

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

Image result for archivist wasp book cover

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.

I bought this when it first came out when I was wondering around Target looking for a book to buy, I really regret blindly buying it now of course. I have zero interest in even reading it. Plus I don’t hear good things about the author…..

Book #131

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

Date Added: July 29th, 2015

Image result for girl with the dragon tattoo book cover

I’m on the fence with this one because I think I will read it eventually (especially since my grandpa has been asking me if I’ve read it yet, forever) but just not soon. I have other books I’d rather get to.

A sort of retelling of Jack the Ripper including a girl who can essentially see ghosts, at least that’s what it sounds like! It sounds interesting and I own a copy so I’d like to see if it’s any good.
