Down the TBR Hole #11

Hey, all! As previously mentioned, I’ve moved Down the TBR Hole posts to every other Sunday. I know I’m posting this on Monday… I forgot to post my draft ): But I still wanted to remind you all that this will be posted biweekly now.

Here are the rules:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

(This tag was created by Lost in a Story)

Let’s see what we’ve got this week (51-55 on my TBR on GoodReads):

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children, #1)Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggsbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

At this point, it’s honestly ridiculous that I haven’t read this book. I’ve owned it for at least a year yet it just sits on my shelf, untouched and unread. It looks like such a fun read to me so I have no idea why I keep putting it off. To anyone who has read it: is it good? Is it worth finally diving into?? I guess since I bought it, I may as well plan to read it some time. I’ll keep it for now.

Verdict: Keep 

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, #1)Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sáenz barnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

First things first: the cover is so beautiful. I’ve honestly only ever heard positive things about this story. Review after review has promised me that the hype is in fact worth it (and trust me when I tell you that the hype is rarely ever worth it). So how can I take it off my TBR when it’s supposed to be such a magnificent story? I’m always down for a great LGBTQ+ love story.

Verdict: Keep 

Me and Earl and the Dying GirlMe and Earl and the Dying Girl – Jesse Andrewsbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I was actually just looking into purchasing this one the other day, so it’d be pretty silly to take it off my list. I haven’t watched the movie so I’m going to be going into it without expectations. From reviews I gather that it tends to be a hit or miss for everyone. Either you enjoyed it a lot or you didn’t care for it much at all. We’ll see which one I fall under!

Verdict: Keep

 

The Good DaughterThe Good Daughter – Karin Slaughterbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I was all but ready to remove this one because I’m entirely over being let down by poorly written and loosely planned thrillers (it’s my favorite genre but I’m so nitpick-y). However, I took a chance and checked out the reviews and everyone seems to love this. Every one of my GR friends who had reviewed it were raving about it. So basically… I must read it.

Verdict: Keep

 

All the Truth That's in MeAll the Truth That’s in Me – Julie Berrybarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

The synopsis looks interesting enough but here’s why I’m going to take this off my TBR: 1) it’s been marked as historical fiction by a lot of readers. I didn’t pick up on that while reading about the book, but I’ll trust that the people who have actually read it know what they are talking about. We all know here that I don’t particularly enjoy historical fiction. 2) It’s apparently second POV and that already annoys me.

Verdict: Remove 


We are slowly but surely organizing my TBR list! Maybe one day I can actually have all of these reads (*laughs at self in disbelief*).

    1. I don’t know why it’s such an easy book to put off??? Yet we continue to do it 😂 I’m SO excited to read Ari and Dante now because I got a lot of feedback about them from this post and everyone swears that their amazing! Now I’m pumped for it.
