Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler

9780316051590_1681X2544

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

24921954 (1)

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

23924355

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

CoverReveals_F15_WalkOnEarth (1)

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

27414431

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

24033058

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

scythe-book-cover-neal-shusterman (1)

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

25167846

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

28114594

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!

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

FURTHERMORE-cover-final-Jan-7-2016 (1)

So I have wanted to get into some middle grade books as I’ve only ever read two and I want to read more. This book sounds like an awesome fantasy book. I actually purchased it a couple days ago with the money Mum gave me for my birthday. It’s not breaking my book buying ban if the money was a gift right? haha

Verdict: KEEP

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

sun_375w (1)

This is a diverse book that is also about family. I mainly read diverse books that focus on the LGBTQIA+ side of diversity and I want to read more. I have read a few but not enough and this one sounds really interesting as it is told in the 2 POVs at different times in their life. This book definitely sounds like something I want to try.

Verdict: KEEP

Naughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman

41yxZv3EezL.SX316

So on the front cover this book is said to be a thriller but the description shouts romance in a dystopian setting. As you may no I’m not a huge fan of romance concentrated books and this screams that it is one.

Verdict: DELETE

Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

OFAScoverR-678x1024 (1)

It’s so uncommon to find diverse characters in fantasy books. It’s happening more often but there still isn’t enough out there! This book and magic world sounds really interesting and the diversity is just a plus. I’m keen to get to this book!

Verdict: KEEP

Tattoo Atlas by Tim Floreen

tattoo-atlas-9781481432801_hr

There is a lot of diverse books in this post. This one is a Sci-Fi Mystery with a GLBT character. This book sounds really interesting and I have never read a mystery besides Agatha Christie so it would be interesting to read a mystery by another author.

Verdict: KEEP

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

17234658

So this is mainly on my TBR because of the cover. I do have a copy of this book on my Scribd app. So this book is said to be a crossover of Orphan Black & Cloud Atlas which I don’t know what either is, I have heard of the Orphan Black show but never actually watched it. So from that I don’t know what to expect from that. But the synopsis does sound really interesting. A multi dimensional hunt for a murder? I’m intrigued.

Verdict: KEEP

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Night-Circus-Cover-low-res (1)

This is such a popular book that I want to read it just for that. It does seem to have a strong romance theme but hopefully it won’t be too overpowering to the story. This is a book that I want to give a chance even though it is romance focused as there is so much praise that I want to see for myself if the hype is worth it.

Verdict: KEEP

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman

17026_413852478709121_1163712783_n (1)

So I do want to give a horror book ago and everyone has recommended Neil Gaiman for that! Also this book is really short so it seems like a good place to start in horror. I do already own a copy of this book that I purchased last year but just haven’t got to. The synopsis just makes me so curious to found out what happened to our MC when he was a kid!

Verdict: KEEP

Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

17668473 (1)

I love Historical Fiction books, especially ones set during WWII. This book’s MC is the niece of none other than Adolf Hitler and that is such an interesting POV to come from in a WWII book! There is obviously going to be a romance as a main part of this book but I still want to give this book a go because of everything else! So hopefully it won’t be too much and at least the romance seems to play a legit part in the plot of the story.

Verdict: KEEP

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

it-ends-with-us-9781471156267_hr

I honestly don’t know why this book is on my TBR at all. New Adult Contemporary Romance? Why did I put this on there?! This is so not something I want to read.

Verdict: DELETE



Well that is all for today! Deleted 2!

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Screenshot_2014-04-23-13-54-05-1

The synopsis for this definitely sounds interesting, but it is still just a romance. I know that so many people love this series and there was so much hype surrounding the last book release was a bit crazy! But this isn’t something I would actually read and it’s only on my TBR because of all they hype surrounding it.

Verdict: DELETE

Harry Potter: The Creature Vault: The Creatures and Plants of the Harry Potter Films by Jody Revenson

y450-293 (4)

I have three of these books on my TBR and I’m only going to write one description. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and I want to know everything! I have the Character Vault and it was so interesting see things for the filming side of things and I want to read all of them!

Verdict: KEEP

Verdict: KEEP

Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley

download (22)

This book sounds so interesting! Magical powers, phantoms, beasts and badass females?! This book sounds right up my alley and I will definitely be getting my hands on a copy of this book!

Verdict: KEEP

The Wangs Vs. The World by Jade Chang

28114515 (1)

This book follows a Chinese family living in America. I haven’t read a book about a Chinese main character I don’t think, so that is one reason I want to read it. Also this is meant to be a contemporary comedy book of sorts and I really want to read a book that is intended as comedy but also about a diverse topic (Immigration).

Verdict: KEEP

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

CYxltN6WAAMMdqt

So this is an Historical Fiction book about being a slave in America in the pre-Civil War Era. There is a lot of mixed reviews about this book and some people have said they didn’t connect with characters and there were also some comments about things being inaccurate. I have no idea if this will be accurate, but I still want to read this book. I don’t know a lot about slavery in America, as I’m not american I didn’t study it in school as or anything like that. But I hope this book can show me a bit of what it was like. And I’m really interested in read this. Also I haven’t read a Historical Fiction book that wasn’t set around war, so that will interesting.

Verdict; KEEP

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

13406425

So this is a book about revenge, however it is still labeled as a romance, which turns me off this book. I have a copy of this on Scribd as it sounded interesting by the synopsis, but now that I’m seeing that it is labeled as a romance I’m not interested. The main reason I was interested was because it just sounded like a revenge story and I was intrigued. But now, not so much.

Verdict: DELETE

Trutchwitch by Susan Dennard

tumblr_nmkditGhQ61snf6rko1_1280 (1)

This is a series I have wanted to start for ages, just haven’t got around to it. I am a massive fantasy fan and this world sounds so interesting! This book also seems like it doesn’t seem to be a focus on romance at all which I am loving! It’s so unique to find a book that isn’t focused on romance, so I’m keen for that!

Verdict: KEEP

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

falling-kingdoms

This is a high fantasy world and the world itself sounds really interesting. I like how in the synopsis you can choose whose side you think sounds the best. There is an implied romance, I think, in the synopsis but it doesn’t seem to be a big focus so I’m not too worried. I like how this book follows 4 different characters and I’m assuming that it will be written in Multi POV.

Verdict: KEEP



So I only deleted 2 books, but it is better than nothing haha! But oh well, that is all for todays Down the TBR Hole!

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

28763485

This book does sound interesting and it is also diverse as one of the main characters Natasha is being deported. I don’t remember what her nationality she is and it’s not in the synopsis but from memory I’m pretty sure she is from a nationality I haven’t read from the POV of before. The only thing that is putting me off this book is that it is so obviously going to be an insta love story which is something I CANNOT stand! So for that reason I will probably never read it.

Verdict: DELETE

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

18189606

Well this book sounds really interesting! I read The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson last year as I received it in The YA Chronicles subscription box and really enjoyed it. I know this book is a romance and I really hope that it won’t involve insta love!

Verdict: KEEP

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

EverythingEverythingCover 7.11.08 pm

I have heard fairly mixed reviews about this book. There was one review I saw on Goodreads that said they don’t support the trope ‘love conquers all – including a life threatening illness’ and if that is the case of this book then I kinda don’t want to read it, I will though as I own the book and it’s only 300 pages.

Verdict: KEEP

November 9 by Colleen Hoover

november-9-9781471154638_hr

So I only have this on my TBR as I have it on my iBooks app. It popped up one day as either 99c or free on iBooks so I grabbed it. This book does sound interesting, the synopsis is intriguing and I love the idea that one of the main characters is a writer. But this is also honestly sounding like those romance movies I strongly dislike, for example: The Notebook.. I don’t think I will ever read a Colleen Hoover book as I’m just not into contemporary romances.

Verdict: DELETE

Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour

03db4620601457d8_EverythingLeadsToYou_LO.xxlarge

I have read You Know Me Well which was co-authored by Nina LaCour & David Levithan and I really enjoyed it! This book sounds like it will be just as good and it will be interesting to read a book only by Nina LaCour to see if I enjoy the writing of it as much as I did You Know Me Well. Also I am also all for diverse books and this also sounds interesting by the way the main character will be introduced to a new lifestyle of sorts.

Verdict: KEEP

Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge

BSCF-hc-678x1024

This book sounds very interesting. It is very obviously a Romeo and Juliet retelling, even using the same names by the sound of it. But the fantasy world around it is whats intriguing me most of all! I have read Romeo and Juliet, as I had to for school and I neither loved nor hated it, it was just kinda eh. So I’m hoping this will be a better version for me. But also there are a love of negative reviews for this book and that average rating on Goodreads is 3.3 so it sounds like a fair few people disliked it. I’m still interested though and want to try it for myself. Also the last part of the Goodreads synopsis is what really pulled me in:

“Both pairs will find friendship where they least expect it. Both will find that Viyara holds more secrets and dangers than anyone ever expected. And outside the walls, death is waiting. . .”

Verdict: KEEP

The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

QueenofBlood_HC_FINAL

For some reason this cover just reminds me of LOTR. Anyway, first there is absolutely no mention of romance in the synopsis which I am loving! This book sounds like an action packed high fantasy adventure and I am so far all of that!

Verdict: KEEP

Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

stealing-snow-danielle-paige-book-cover

This sounds like an awesome take on a retelling of The Winter’s Tale! I haven’t read The Winter’s Tale I have just seen other people say that it is a retelling of it. I haven’t read Danielle Paige’s other series Dorothy Must Die, but it is on my TBR and I want to get to it soon! Basically everything in the synopsis sounds really interesting and like something I would enjoy! Lets hope I do.

Verdict: KEEP

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

25486998

This just sounds like the typical ‘cute contemporary’ and I don’t really care for it. I don’t think I need to explain further than that.

Verdict: DELETE

Legend by Marie Lu

Legend_Marie_Lu_Book_cover

This sounds interesting. The world sounds very different and cool and that is what is drawing me in. Also a lot of people seem to love this series and it is one that I have wanted to read for ages! Marie Lu is just a very highly praised author and I want to jump on that bandwagon.

Verdict: KEEP



I also had another book on my TBR that I skipped over and that was The Kill Order which is the prequel to The Maze Runner. I read that series a couple years ago some time and I’m just not interested in reading a prequel to it so long after reading the series.

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

tumblr_inline_n8yjpqcTCx1rcr6mq

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

16429619

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

7018200-3x4-580x773

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

Red_Queen_book_cover

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

27833800

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

Verdict: KEEP

The Wrath & the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

9780399171611_large_The_Wrath_and_the_Dawn

To be honest I have heard some very mixed feelings about this book. I have also just recently read Flame in the Mist which I did not enjoy and had issues with, so I don’t know if I want to read this book or not. I kinda don’t want to because I don’t want to waste my time but then I do want to read it because maybe I will enjoy it and not have the issues that other people have. So I will leave it on my TBR but it’s definitely not high on my priority list..

Verdict: KEEP

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

18053060

So I own third book in this series because it was a series I was interested in and it was in a pop up book store that I saw for like $5 so I couldn’t pass on that deal. I do want to read this series! I love the idea of a Wizard of Oz retelling and this book just sounds so interesting!

Verdict: KEEP

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

23299513

So this book is a snow white retelling which is interesting to begin with! I can definitely see the Snow White inspired parts in the synopsis! This book sounds so interesting! Overall this book doesn’t have high ratings, but I am curious to give it a go because the synopsis sounds interesting! It has the potential to have awesome world building and an interesting magic system so I hope it lives up to that!

Verdict: KEEP

And I Darken by Kiersten White

27190613 (1)

So I would own a copy of this book as it came in one of the YA Chronicles subscription boxes but that month I didn’t renew my subscription because I needed the money to get new glasses! So if I had got it I would have already read this! This book is another retelling, this one being a retelling based on Vlad the Impaler! I don’t know a tonne about the history of this so it would be interesting to learn about it! As well as from a fantasy and also woman perspective as our main character is a female whereas Vlad the Impaler was obviously a male. So that will be interesting to swap that perspective! I’m keen to read this one!

Verdict: KEEP

The Siren by Kiera Cass

9780062391995_p0_v3_s1200x630

Okay so I have this book on my TBR because at the time I had just read the The Watersong Quartet by Amanda Hocking which I loved so I saw a book called ‘The Siren’ and added it! However I haven’t looked at it since! Reading the synopsis I have realised that this is just a romance and I’m not interested!

Verdict: DELETE

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

The-Star-Touched-Queen-High-Res-1

This book just sounds so interesting and different! I have never read the synopsis, only seen people rave about it but never knew what it was about and now I am so much more curious about this book and want to pick it up soon!

Verdict: KEEP

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

download (20)

So this is a fairly series topic, Leukemia, and I’m curious to see how this book plays out as a comedy as well! I am also interested because this book isn’t about romance! I love a good book that isn’t entirely focused on romance! Also I want to read this partly because my childhood best friend died of Leukemia.

Verdict: KEEP

Vodka Doesn’t Freeze by Leah Giarratano

6a00d8341c93ee53ef0133f273e7a7970b

So this book is a adult mystery thriller based in Australia! It doesn’t sounds really interesting but in all honesty I will probably actually never read it. I do have a copy of this book which I got from a bookfest (which to us is where you pay $5 for a bag and fill it with as many second hand books as you can fit) So it sounded interesting when I picked it up, as did all the other books I picked up but I have yet to read any of them.

Verdict: DELETE

Rick Riordan

So I’m just adding the next 5 books in one here!

Yes I know! I haven’t got to any of Rick Riordan’s books yet but I really want to! It’s just because there is so many of them that it’s a little daunting but I do want to get to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series at least soon!

Verdict: KEEP ALL

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

cvr9781416990680_9781416990680_hr

Honestly I will probably never actually get to this book. I have read The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson and I really enjoy it, but just in all honestly I probably won’t get to this one as I’m more likely to pick up a Fantasy book than this!

Verdict: DELETE

Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston

exitcoverforreveal

This book is honestly only on my TBR list because of Hailey from Hailey in Bookland on YouTube. I know nothing about it, so here it goes to read the synopsis! So reading the synopsis this book does sound interesting and it sounds like it deals with a difficult topic (Trigger warning for RAPE). This is a book I want to read for those reasons, I just don’t know when I will get to it.

Verdict: KEEP

The Dead of Night by John Marsden

12141352

So this is the second book in the Tomorrow When the War Began series! I absolutely love the first book and really want to continue the series, just haven’t got to it yet!

Verdict: KEEP

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

5598e8ceea24e0e99bfacd73f756e785

So I just read the synopsis and this book sounds so interesting! It sounds like a book that has a awesome female main character discovering herself! A dystopian type world and magic! And also as far as I can see in the synopsis there isn’t romance which if that is the case in the book that would be awesome as I feel like most books have a main romance that is a major part and I would like to read something that chills on the romance, especially a Fantasy that does that!

Verdict: KEEP

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

LM_cover

So this book shouldn’t be read before reading both The Mortal Instruments series & The Infernal Devices series. I have only read 2 books of the TMI series, so I am a fair way away from getting to this book as I don’t really know if I want to finish that series yet!

Verdict: DELETE

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

the-winners-curse

This book sounds interesting but I also don’t really know what’s meant to happen. The synopsis doesn’t really tell much, so I don’t really know about this book actually. I hear it mentioned occasionally on BookTube but I also feel like I haven’t really seen it as anyones absolute favourite! I think this is a book I can let go of.

Verdict: DELETE

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

So I’m not actually going to read the synopsis as I want to go in knowing very little. But I want to finish the Grisha trilogy first even though people have said you can read Six of Crows with out having read Grisha. But that’s the way I want to do it! I really enjoyed the first book of the Grisha trilogy, Shadow and Bone so I do want to continue the series and then jump into the Six of Crows duology!

Verdict: KEEP

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

So this book does sound interesting but I also know that there is many people that either love or hate this book and it’s one of those books that I want to try for myself to find out which side I’m on!

Verdict: KEEP

Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

24657660 (1)

So this book is a YA Romance with a kind of fantasy vibe. But mainly just romance it seems. And this also has a slight Rapunzel retelling hint to it as well. I honestly don’t think I will read this though, if the focus was on fantasy and a bit of romance with that then yeah sure! But a book focused on romance is just not my thing!

Verdict: DELETE

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Okay so if you have been living under a rock, Rainbow Rowell has a book called fangirl which is ultimately about someone that writes fanfiction for this fantasy series that is in that world. So then she wrote the book that the fanfiction was based on.

I haven’t read Fangirl and probably won’t but I feel like this can be read without reading Fangirl. So if you have read these then let me know if this can be read without having read fangirl. I’m pretty sure it could, but I’m curious!

Verdict: KEEP


Well I deleted 4 out of 10 and I’m pretty happy with that! And that is all for this week!
