Welcome again to Down the TBR Hole! This meme came from Lost in a Story. All book descriptions taken from Goodreads.
Current TBR Total: 135
It works like this:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
The False Prince (The Ascendance Trilogy #1) by Jennifer A. Nielsen – This book certainly has a premise that feels familiar. So many YA fantasies are about a crumbling patriarchy. However, I can’t lie, it works for a reason. This book is going to sick around.
The Falconer (The Falconer #1) by Elizabeth May – Fantasy world, strong female protagonist, evil fae…yup, I’m on board. I can’t help it, some ropes work for a reason. How can I say no to a woman on a mission to avenge her mother’s death at the hands of the evil fae?
The Last Wish (Saga o Wiedźminie #1) by Andrzej Sapkowski – This book sounds interesting and it is the basis for a very popular series of video games. However, that alone is not enough to make it interesting to me. I get a vague pull from it but not enough to actually read it.
Untitled (A Court of Thorns and Roses #4) by Sarah J. Maas – So, obviously not the correct cover because it hasn’t been released yet. I wish I could find who created that one because it makes me laugh. Anyway, we all know that I am keeping this book on my TBR. Doesn’t matter how much I disliked A Court of Frost and Starlight, I’m going to keep reading.
The Queen’s Rising (The Queen’s Rising #1) by Rebecca Ross – This book is sitting around my digital library somewhere. Bought it months ago and never opened it. I’m a huge waffling mess about it. Does it have the same general premise we have all read before? Absolutely. Does it still sound good? Yes again. Screw it. Going to keep it.
The Secret of Vesalius by Jordi Llobregat – This book makes me salivate with want. I need it in my life. The problem? Getting it in the US without there being a huge overseas shipping fee on top of an already slightly more expensive than I’d like book gives me pause. One of these days…
New TBR Total: 134
Yeah. That was the most unsuccessful Down the TBR Hole I have ever done. All of the books spoke to my soul this week, though. I couldn’t just say goodbye to them, especially since I already own two of them.
