My Goodreads TBR (76-80)

Lessons from a Dead GirlLessons from a Dead Girl – Jo Knowlesbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I think it’s pretty understood at this point that I don’t shy away from books with hard content. In fact, as you’re about to see with this entire post, I often seek them out. I think the stories that talk about the things that a lot of people try to sweep under the rug in day-to-day life are the most important. They are also the most difficult to read, but they’re usually worth it.

Verdict: Keep

Some BoysSome Boys – Patty Blountbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I mean, I could just repeat everything that I just said but that’s pointless. It’s about abuse and seems to be done well (at least according to reviews), so I’m definitely keeping it on my TBR.

 

Verdict: Keep

 

All the RageAll the Rage – Courtney Summersbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

Is… anyone else noticing a pattern? It seems that in December of 2017 I was trying to find some very heavy reads. Of course, they are still sitting on my TBR, because I keep rereading instead of reaching for new books, but that’s besides the point. I would probably read this no matter what it was about because Courtney Summers has absolutely never done me wrong.

Verdict: Keep

Asking For ItAsking For It – Louise O’Neillbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

On top of the sociology (abuse) aspect of this, the novel is also supposed to confront what happens when society knows what happens to people, and doesn’t seem to care. I’ve watched a few movies on Lifetime that seem really close to this premise and even though I know it will break my heart… I have to keep it.

 

Verdict: Keep

Forgive Me, Leonard PeacockForgive Me, Leonard Peacock – Matthew Quickbarnes-and-noble-iconamazon-icon-256goodreads-square-light-4-512

I have a lot of mixed emotions about whether or not I truly want to read this book. From the description and reader’s reviews, I know it’ll be a hard read and whether or not it’s worth it seems to be up in the air. I think for the time being I’m going to let this one go, but don’t hold it against me if I still decide to read it later on. I think I just need to be in a certain mindset to take something like this on.

Verdict: Remove (for now)
