My Goodreads TBR (71-75)
This is seriously my kind of book. I am always on the look out for a good YA mystery book and frankly they are really hard to come by, so how in the world could I possibly get rid of this? Actually, I’m really excited that I’ve now been reminded of it’s existence.
I will admit that I get a little cautious when it comes to science fiction novels. Sometimes I absolutely love them, but often they bore me a lot. However, this is rated pretty highly and I’ve seen a lot of positive reviews on it. Also, I already own it and can’t get myself to throw a book I own off of my TBR.
The film adaption of this still creeps me out to this day. Ever since I found out that the movie was adapted from a book, I’ve wanted to read it. Is my TBR too long? Yes. Am I going to keep this anyways? Yes.
To be entirely honest, I’m very picky about poetry. Most often when I get a book of poetry collections, I end up liking a bit and disliking a bit. It’s pretty rare that I enjoy the whole thing, but I think that’s to be expected. Since I am a bit familiar with this author’s work, I’m going to keep this. I know that she’s written some really beautiful work before, so I’m interested to see what this has to offer.
To say I am conflicted about this one is an understatement. The synopsis isn’t very telling, so I went to the reviews, and after learning what this book is truly about and how it’s played out… I think I’m going to pass. It could possibly be handled well but for such an important topic, I’m scared to go into it and it not been done right. So, I’m just gonna avoid it altogether.
