Hey everybody! I am back way sooner than I expected with another Down the TBR Hole post. I wanted to get the two in for February so I’m doing this much sooner than expected. If you don’t know what this blog series is here are the rules: You go to your Goodreads TBR shelf, choose 5+ books, read the synopsis, and decide whether or not you’re going to keep it on your TBR or get rid of it. So let’s get started.
#16 Vampire Academy (Vampire academy #1) by Richelle Mead
I think this one is going to mainly stay because there’s a movie. I will always read a book if I find the movie even slightly interesting (and my mom hates me for it). I had a friend tell me she didn’t like it but for other people its their guilty pleasure because at this point, vampire books are corny. I think the idea that friends are protector and protectee is really interesting and really new, so I like the plot too.
#17 Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
I am behind once again. And once again I am keeping the book on my TBR because of the hype. I mean, I can’t be left the only book lover in the world that hasn’t read it so… Also, I need to read more retellings and a Cinderella one where she is a cyborg is the perfect place to start. Another trope that I like: when someone is able to used against others because of a… secret gift. So I’m all in.
#18 Delirium (Delirium #1) by Oliver Lauren
This one I don’t know immediately about but I obviously added it for a reason. I think it’s the one that’s like Nerve though so let’s read the synopsis. Oop just kidding no it’s not, this sounds much more interesting. Something I’ve never really heard of where love is basically forbidden. And yet another lovable trope: Forbidden lovers. I would love to see how this turns out so I’m actually keeping this one for the plot.
#19 Unwind (Unwind #1) by Neal Shusterman
This is one from that bookish Tumblr that I loved a few years back. I haven’t read a Neal Shusterman book yet but he is loved by many. And yes I want to keep and read this because holy crap, it actually kind of sounds scary. Parents wanting to give up their children and literally kill them? Freaking crazy and I want to read it now because honestly, I believe some parents would love to do that, hahaha.
#20 I Was Here by Gayle Forman
I loved Gayle Forman’s If I Stay duology so that was obviously my main reason for adding this book when I first knew it came out. This sounds super interesting because mysterious backgrounds are a favorite of mine after reading The Good Daughter last year. And throwing death into that mix makes it that much for interesting. So yes I think I will keep this one just for the sake of the mystery even though it isn’t stated in the genres.
That’s all for today folks! You know the drill, answer these questions: Have you read any of these books? Tell me in the comments what you think about them.
