My Goodreads TBR (66-70)

All You Never WantedAll You Never Wanted – Adele Griffinbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I’ve actually read a lot of negative reviews for this, but I’m still really intrigued by it. Sibling rivalry and untrustworthy narrators sound interesting to me. What can I say? Also, it’s not uncommon for me to love a book that everyone else hated. So… I’ll give it a shot.

Verdict: Keep

 

Running with ScissorsRunning with Scissors – Augusten Burroughsbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I generally really enjoy memoirs because I think the realness of the story truly adds to the reading experience, but I fear that this one may be more than I can handle. After reading the reviews, it looks like it’s got some really tough content and while I’m sure it’s good, I don’t know if my brain is in the right mental space for something like this.

Verdict: Remove

 

What We SawWhat We Saw – Aaron Hartzlerbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I tend to get a little nervous whenever a book with a female perspective about sexual assault is written by a male. However, I think it can be done, and according to other opinions I’ve seen, Hartzler managed it well here. Books like this one always break my heart but I value them endlessly.

Verdict: Keep

 

Playlist for the DeadPlaylist for the Dead – Michelle Falkoffbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

If I’m being entirely honest with you, I only added this to my TBR because I needed something that started with a ‘P’ for my 2018 ABC Challenge. Clearly, I didn’t end up reading it for the challenge, but I do think I’m going to keep it on my TBR because the synopsis has made me very curious. I’m not sure I’ll like it… but I’m willing to find out.

Verdict: Keep

 

Just VisitingJust Visiting – Dahlia Adlerbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

Once again, I only added this novel to my TBR for the ABC Challenge. I was all but ready to go ahead and kick it to the curb but then I discovered that this has a ton of representation in it. I have been really wanting to read more diverse books (and if you have any recommendations, I’d love them!!) and I figured I might as well see how I feel about it.

Verdict: Keep

    1. Hahaha, I can completely relate! 😂 I am the WORST about adding new books to my TBR. I could carry on with these posts forever because I’ll never run out of tbr books! Which books did you decide to add to your TBR?(:
