  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Blog Titles (16)

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler


This book is only on my TBR because it was a possible read for a ReadAThon but I never actually chose to read it. It’s also nowhere near what I would choose to read myself. Contemporary, Chick Lit, Romance?? No thanks

Verdict: DELETE

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

This book looks like it has excessive romance in it as it’s mentioned with more than one character in the synopsis. Even though everything else about this book does intrigue me, I’m not a fan of all the romance references. This book has a gorgeous cover though.

Verdict: DELETE

Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh


Another romance.. This book is also a fantasy historical fiction and sounds really interesting. If you have read this book then please let me know how excessive the romance is in this book. I will keep it on my TBR for now as everything else sounds awesome, but the romance is pushing me away.

Verdict: KEEP

Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

I have a lot of Historical in this list. This one, however, shows no romance, and also sounds awesome! This is a fantasy historical fiction which are both genres I love. This also has a fair bit of high praise and a lot of people love Rae Carson. So I’m keen to get to this book at some point!

Verdict: KEEP

Nemesis by Anna Banks


So this book is being labeled as a ‘two enemies falling in love’ book and I’m not exactly keen on that. However the rest of this book sounds really interesting and I want to give it a go for that reason. I managed to ignore the general romance in the ACOTAR series, so if the rest of the book is good enough then I will be able to do that with this one too.

Verdict: KEEP

Glitter by Aprilynne Pike


Pretty sure this book is only on here because if the cover, as it is gorgeous. But this is another historical fantasy book. This book does sound really interesting but there is a lot of negative reviews and some of them are from people I trust the opinions of. People have said there is crappy characters, bad world development, and a shitty romance, so for that reason, I think I will leave it.

Verdict: DELETE

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

I have been wanting to give a Neal Shusterman book a go for a while, just haven’t got to it. This book sounds awesome and extremely interesting. Apprentices to a scythe in a world with nothing to kill people except scythes. Yep, I’m intrigued!

Verdict: KEEP

Iron Cast by Destiny Soria

28818313 (1)

I must have been looking for historical fantasy books for a reason because this is yet another. This book sounds really fascinating and it has a lot of praise for it!

Verdict: KEEP

Beast by Brie Spangler


A Beauty and the Beast retelling with a transgender love interest? I’m interested in this book, it sounds really cool and I’m yet to read about a transgender character.

Verdict: KEEP

Speed of Life by J.M. Kelly


I have no idea why this is on my TBR, maybe because of the Mustang on the front cover? I don’t know. But this is a YA contemporary and I’m just not interested.

Verdict: DELETE

Deleting 4 books this week and I’m happy with that!
