Down the TBR Hole 9

Hey there, fellow readers! It’s time to go through my TBR pile again, with another pst of Down the TBR Hole hosted by Lia @ Lost in a Story. This meme is dedicated to uncluttering your TBR pile, going through each book and choosing which one should stay or go. Making this post is always so much fun for me and today is no exception! So, I’ll just get right to it and introduce this week’s choices:

1.  Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid


I’m pretty sure that at this point, I’m not going to read this book. When I first heard about it, it seemed kind of interesting, but now, it seems kind of cliché to me…

The verdict: Go

2. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman


I think I’ll pass on this one as well, especially since I haven’t read the first novel. I know that This Shattered World is a companion novel, but I always like reading the first in a series, companion or not…

The verdict: Go

3. Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone


I’m definitely reading this one sometimes soon! Just forgot that it was even on my TBR pile!

The verdict: Keep

4. Royal Wedding Disaster by Meg Cabot


Upon further consideration, I’m going to keep this book on my TBR pile. I honestly thought for a moment that I should take it off, but then I realized there was a third one in the works and got really excited for that, so yeah, I’m probably going to read this book! 😉

The verdict: Keep

5. Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins


At first, I was really excited for this anthology since a lot of the authors were ones I’d admired. But I actually haven’t gotten around to it because I’m not a big fan of anthologies and I don’t think I’ll get around to it anytime soon…

The verdict: Go

Well, that’s all for now! If you have any thoughts or questions about this week’s post, feel free to leave a comment in the section below. Thanks for reading, everyone!

Down the TBR Hole 8

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a restful Sunday! I’m back with another post of Down the TBR Hole, hostedby Lia @ Lost in a Story. This meme is dedicated to uncluttering your TBR pile, going through each book and choosing which one should stay or go. Right now, my TBR pile is under 200! I’m kind of shocked, but it doesn’t mean that it can’t go back up there soon, especially with all the new books I’ve been adding lately! 😉 Anyways, here are the books I’m considering this week:

1.  Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta


This one I definitely want to keep! I know I’ve only read Saving Francesca by this author, but I really loved it! And I think that the plot summary sounds interesting enough. Plus, people have said so many good things about this book that I’m not willing to discard it off my TBR pile yet. 😉

The verdict: Keep

2. Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock


I have to keep this book since it contains one of my weaknesses: pageantry. I love reading books about pageants, so yeah, I’m keeping it!

The verdict: Keep

3. Anne & Henry by Dawn Ius


I just don’t know about this one… On the one hand, it seems interesting, and I know I’d probably read it if I had no other book at the time. That being said, I’m probably not going to give this book priority over other books, so I might as well take it off my TBR pile instead of leaving it there forever…

The verdict: Go

4. Riders by Veronica Rossi


I think this one’s going off my TBR pile, too, at least for now. I loved Veronica Rossi’s previous series, but I’m not sure I’d be into the book based on the plot summary…

The verdict: Go

5. The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan


Even though I’ve taken a break from Rick Riordan’s works, I think I’ll come back to this sooner or later!

The verdict: Keep

Well, that’s all for now! If you have any thoughts about this week’s books, let me know about them in the Comments Section below. Have a nice day, everyone!
