The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton


This book just sounds so interesting and so many people have recommended and love it! I honestly haven’t read that many magical realism books and I really want to. The only Magical Realism I have read was The Raven Cycle and I loved it!

Verdict: KEEP

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell


Okay so I have a couple Rainbow Rowell books on this list, I will do them all together under Fangirls pic!

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell


Landline by Rainbow Rowell


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

428050 (1)

Okay so I want to read a Rainbow Rowell book but I’m more drawn to Fangirl than Attachments, Eleanor & Park and Landline. Honestly I don’t understand the synopsis of Landline at all.. It’s not time travel but she can talk to her husband in the past to fix her marriage, sorry what?! Eleanor & Park and Attachments just sound like basic romances which I’m not a huge fan of. Fangirl is the only one that sounds like something I would actually enjoy because of all the fandom related stuff!

Eleanor & Park: DELETE
Attachments: DELETE
Landline: DELETE
Fangirl: KEEP

The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson


So I don’t know about this book! The idea and the world sounds interesting but it sounds pretty heavy on the romance side of things.. I’m honestly a little over romance heavy books, I just read the ACOTAR series and even though I enjoyed it, it was very heavy on the romance which did annoy me at times.. Why does every book have to have so much romance! So if you have read this then let me know in the comment whether the world and everything is worth it in this book. Please no spoilers!

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins


Okay so I am curious about this book and it sounds interesting and mysterious. I do own a copy of this book too and I want to try and get into more thrillers, I don’t know if jumping into an Adult thriller was the best idea but keen to give it a go.

Verdict: KEEP

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


Okay so this sounds like an intense book! There seems to be a lot going on and in an interesting confusing world with magic, well ‘powers’, whatever that implies! This is definitely a future read!

Verdict: KEEP

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

51PR5E6NCDL (2)

This book has been on my TBR for a while and I want to get to it just haven’t got a copy of it yet! Otherwise I would have read it by now! I love historical Fiction book especially World War II related books.

Verdict: KEEP

Between Worlds by Skip Brittenham


This is a Middle Grade book and sounds really interesting! It honestly sounds like something you would dream about as a kid!

Verdict: KEEP

Well I deleted 3 out of the 10, not too bad!
