It’s been a while and my TBR keeps piling up. So, I guess it’s that time again. Got some end of summer cleaning up to do. And because I will probably forget to do this post next week, I’m doing 10 books this time! I’m hoping I’ll have a few “easy pickings” on this list.
Down the TBR Hole is a weekly book meme created by the wonderful Lia @ Lost in a Story that attempts to organize our ridiculously long Goodreads TBR list by choosing either to keep or eliminate the books we’ve saved on there.
End of Days (Penryn & the End of Days, #3) | Susan Ee
Ah yes. “Easy pickings.” I read this book last year and enjoyed it quite a bit. I’d have to say that it was my least favorite of the three, but it was still a pretty good conclusion to the trilogy. You can read my review for it here, if you’d like.
Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3) | Morgan Rhodes
This one is also “easy pickings” because I haven’t finished the first book and I don’t like to add sequels before I know whether or not I’d like to continue on with the series. So, for now, I can keep this one off the TBR.
I really would like to finish the Percy Jackson series before starting any other series by Riordan, but only because I fear they’re all connected. Still, this is the first in a series and I’m looking for fantasty books my student might be interested in reading. So, I don’t think it’d hurt to keep this one on.
The Last Ever After (The School of Good and Evil, #3) | Soman Chainani
I’ve heard some good things about this middle grade series and I’ve been meaning to start it. Also, it might be a potentially good read for my student. But he and I won’t be starting with the third book. This one can go for now.
Dorothy Must Die | Danielle Paige
I’ve actually been meaning to read this one in the past few weeks. I’ve seen it at my local library but I keep getting distracted by the newer releases. Once I’ve finished my current reading load, I’m pretty sure I’ll get around to this one by next month!
When We Collided | Emery Lord
I think I was confusing this one for another book. The premise sounds pretty generic but still something I’d enjoy reading. Plus, I could always use a break from my fantasy binges with an interesting contemporary!
Ruin and Rising (Shadow and Bone, #3) | Leigh Bardugo
This is the third and final book in the Grisha trilogy that I still have NOT read. I feel so ashamed. I LOVE Leigh Bardugo, but I have yet to finish her original series. I plan to do so soon, hopefully before Language of Thorns comes out!
Through the Dark ( The Darkest Minds novella collection) | Alexandra Bracken
There I go again, adding books just because of the cover. I haven’t read the Darkest Minds trilogy just yet, and I’m not even sure if I will. Until I decide, I think these little novellas can wait.
Looking for Alaska | John Green
I recently bought this book at the bookstore in my little library for 50 cents! I’ve heard so many good things about this one and I thought I’d give John Green another try. I didn’t like TFIOS or An Abundance of Katherines, but I did like Paper Towns. So, this book will be my 4th attempt in trying to decide if I actually like John Green or not.
The 100 | Kass Morgan
I’m a huge fan of this show and I’ve always wondered about the book. Many people have told me it’s not as good as the show and that I might be wasting my time reading it, but I’m still really curious to see what the differences are between the TV series and the original story! So, I think I’ll still try it out one day.
Keep – 6
Go – 4
KK, that’s all for now! What’d you think of my choices? Do you know any of the books I listed? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for stopping by! See ya soon ❤
