Down the TBR Hole #5


Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 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?laurelsfloweers_0008_vectorsmartobject

The Books:

Anglefall by Susan Ee\\ I’m not a huge fan of this cover anymore. I think I added it to my TBR because I saw an advertisement on my kindle one day. I enjoy books about angles  but I don’t think I’ll end up picking this book up, sadly. VerdictGo

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick\\ I think I added this book because of the cover, but again, it does not sound interesting. I think I’ll have to let this one go…. VerdictGo

The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove\\ I think I added this because Regan from the Peruse Project enjoyed it and because the cover is gorgeous. However, I’m not a fan of historical fiction in the slightest. I think I’ll have to pass on this one. Verdict: Go

Red Rising by Pierce Brown\\ This is like my number one book I want to read. I think I bought it on my kindle, but honestly, I can’t remember for the life of me. It sounds so good and I’ve heard amazing things about it. I also really enjoy the cover! It’s so pretty and simple and UGH. I need to buy this book ASAP. Verdict: Keep

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco\\ This is another one that doesn’t sound like something I would really enjoy. I think the cover is really neat and creepy. I think it would make a great Halloween story, but I don’t think i’d pick it up. I’m taking it off. Verdict: Go

Thoughts on the books I read
I think the Pivot Point duology by Kasie West was by far my favorite books I read this month. The books were cute and freaking hilarious. I needed more Trevor Heartless was probably my least favorite read simply because I was so disappointed. I was disappointed because I freaking adore the Lunar Chronicles. Paranormalcy was an okay read. It was fun but just…weird. There wasn’t much to the story. The Raven Boys was also a weird freaking book. I don’t know what I was expecting from the book, but it sure wasn’t what happened in it. Lastly, I read the first two books in the Firewalker trilogy by Josephine Angelini. This trilogy so far is also disappointing because I loved her Starcrossed trilogy so much. ❤

Personal favorite things that happened

  • My boyfriend gave me the best Valentine’s Day. He made a fantastic fish and salad dinner.
  • Awhile ago, I was complaining to my boyfriend that I bought the old cover to the last Percy Jackson book off of Book Depository but they sent me the new cover instead. I was upset that it didn’t match my covers. So what did my boyfriend do? He bought me the last Percy Jackson book in the old cover. He bought the hardback though and my series in paperback so it still doesn’t match, but it’s the thought that counts 🙂
  • I started second shift again. I work 3pm-11pm and so far I like it!
