Welcome again to Down the TBR Hole! This meme came from Lost in a Story. All book descriptions taken from Goodreads.
Current TBR Total: 151
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?
Iron Gold (Red Rising Saga #4) by Pierce Brown – This one is a no brainer. I absolutely loved the first three books in this series and bought Iron Gold on release day. Unfortunately, since then it has sat on my shelf with a tiny little bookmark sticking out of the top after just a couple of chapters. I will definitely finish this book…someday.
Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon – I like the idea of a reimagined Oliver Twist. Granted, it is not one of my favorite classics but it has good and relevant points. It would be fun to give this story a try through the eyes of a young lady instead of a young boy. I think I own a digital copy of this anyway so it is going to stay.
Vengeful (Villains #2) by V.E. Schwab – Oh please, do we even need to talk about this? I don’t think I’ll ever delete a Schwab book. That woman stole my literary heart the moment I read, “Kell had a very peculiar coat,” and I have never looked back. Granted, I was not the biggest fan of Vicious but I think that was because of my method of reading. I’ll still read Vengeful, just probably not as audio.
The Anatomist’s Wife (Lady Darby Mystery #1) by Anna Lee Huber – Have you read the description for this book? It sounds like an epic period murder mystery with (obviously) murder, intrigue, scandal, and just a peppering a romance. I’m such a sucker for a good mystery, especially one based in that time period. Sold!
The Bone Curse (Benjamin Oris #1) by Carrie Rubin – Well, perhaps once upon a time the premise of this one would have caught me. A man gets cut by an old bone in the Paris catacombs and he now is cursed for the people around him to die. While it could be entertaining it also feels a little shallow. I’d probably never end up picking this one up.
A Time of Dread (Of Blood and Bone #1) by John Gwynne – I am really on the fence about this one. According to the description it is an epic fantasy which usually isn’t up my alley. At the same time it sounds a little interesting. I think what is going to clinch this one is that the race and place names makes me think of World of Warcraft and I just don’t think I could separate them in my mind enough to get caught up in the story.
