Down The TBR Hole #25

down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

Hello guys! Happy Saturday!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. We actually have sun today in the UK. How cool (rare) is that? This time, there are a few books I am actually sad to say bye-bye to, but if I don’t tidy up my TBR on a weekly basis, it will be a mess, and I will have to hide in a cave and read until the end of time.

Also, have you guys noticed that my TBR images are getting darker and darker slowly? I wonder why…

How it works:

❤ 1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
❤ 2. Order on ascending date added.
❤ 3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
❤ 4. Read the synopsis of the books.
❤ 5.Time to Decide: keep it or should it go

Here’s the next patch:

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

The synopsis of Sky in the Deep seems so good, but its hype scares me. I try to avoid hype as much as I can, and I will remove this one. Have you read this book? Let me know in the comments if you enjoyed it, and I might change my mind after 🙂

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Savor You (Fusion, #5) by Kristen Proby

A hot steamy romance – sure, why not? But a fifth book in a series – I can’t read you before I’ve read your ex-books – sorry!

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon

I have always loved the mystery behind the whole Romanov family, especially Anastasia. And I have just read ”Romanov” by Nadine Brandes and really enjoyed it. This will always be a subject I am willing to read about, and I have to keep this book on my TBR. 

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Heist Society (Heist Society, #1) by Ally Carter

I like Ally Carter’s books. They always make me giggle, and they are always a nice, fast, relaxing read. I read I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You and I loved it. I am not sure whether to continue that series, or read this book instead. Okay – time for decision making. This one goes. 

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

A Japanese pulp classic, Battle Royale is a story very similar to Hunger Games. Students are thrown on a deserted island and they have to kill eachother. Only one survives. I love this topic (okay, don’t get me wrong, I completely DISAGREE that it is okay to dump people and see them kill each other. However, the twisted part of me enjoys reading these type of stories.)

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

All the Ever Afters: The Untold Story of Cinderella’s Stepmother by Danielle Teller

We all know the story of Cinderella. Or do we? A Cinderella re-telling and a delicious, chocolate fudge eatable cover – I don’t think I will ever be able to resist this book. So why haven’t I read it yet???

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet, #1) by Madeleine L’Engle

You know that time when you want to read a book so badly before it comes out, and then a movie comes out as well, and there’s the hype, and you still haven’t read said book. And then two years later, you are suddenly not so sure you wanted to read this book anyways? Why do I have this feeling with this book? I will have to let it go for now. 

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Boy and His Ribbon (The Ribbon Duet, #1) by Pepper Winters

Okay – let me tell you a little background story about this book. I requested it on Netgalley as an ARC. Then, I got approved. After that, I forgot to download it on time, and it went into archives. I still don’t have the book, but Netgalley still counts it as something I have to read. So what do I do? I wait to get it from the library, I guess… Even though, at this point, I might as well remove it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

A Queen’s Spy (The Tudor Mystery Trials #1) by Samantha Burnell

 I have received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway (WHY DO YOU NOT HAVE GIVEAWAYS IN UK ANYMORE???) I am excited to read this one, however I never really gotten my hands on it.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Clash of Empires (Clash of Empires #1) by Ben Kane

Again, a Goodreads Giveaway Book. You probably already know my rule, where I try and read every book I physically receive because I appreciate the effort of everyone involved. I also love Roman History, and it has a Macedonian history as well, with Philip The Second and Alexander The Great, so I can’t miss this.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantWe only kept 5 books and removed 5 this time around. I am getting through this, but I am starting to worry I am getting weaker, as we are getting close to my recent TBR books.

Which books would you keep or remove? Please let me know in the comments because I love reading your comments and thoughts!

  1. Happily we have another bright day today. I’ve not read any of those. I was also really peeved about Goodreads stopping UK giveaways.

  2. I’m glad you kept “I Was Anastasia” on your TBR list. I have been considering adding that book to my TBR list because of how interesting the story sounds. After you read the book, you should definitely write a review for it.

  3. Just right in time, I was looking for a book to read and I guess I would add A wrinkle in time to my list

  4. I tend to look at older books in my collections and get the urge to read them, since it’s been around 10-12 years after I last read them and I have just gotten an urge to do it 😀 but your last list does have some promising candidates that I would very much like to keep 😀

  5. Wow! that’s a very interesting list of books to read. I agree on you when chooking books to read, I do the same as well, I read the synopsis first then if clicks or their a connection with me then I’ll surely read it after.
