Hey, everybody! How are you all? Today we’re back with another Down the TBR Hole post. If you don’t know what this is, basically, you just go to your Goodreads TBR shelf and decide whether or not you want to keep books on your TBR or get rid of them. So let’s get started.
1. Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King
This one is easily a keep for me because I already have this book on my physical bookshelf. I’m actually not positive about what the book is about as it has been a long time since I heard about this book. This book was recommended to me from a bookish Tumblr blog called heyteenbookshey (I’ve talked about them before) and I still haven’t read it yet. But I found it in Half Priced Books one time so I picked up because I had been wanting to read it for a while. I still can’t wait to read it and go in blind.
2. A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle
This is a classic… So what does that mean? I’m keeping it! It’s also has a movie adaptation to it now so that’s another reason to keep it. Besides it possibly being in the fantasy genre, I truthfully have no idea what this one is about either. So I’ll also go into this one blind hoping that it won’t turn into another classic I hate.
3. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
This is my eighth-grade teacher’s favorite book ever, she had a poster in her room for it and talked about it all the time. But its a classic so that’s an automatic keep. And it has a plot that I don’t see often because it is an antiwar novel. We only ever see a war in novels! Especially in classics. So I think this one is going to be very interesting to read.
4. The Lunar Chronicles
That specifically is the last three books in the series. I don’t know why Cinder isn’t with these three but I think it because I added them to my TBR a little bit after Cinder, but that means I’ve already done Cinder and just don’t remember it. These are another keep that’s easy to decide since I (probably) kept Cinder. Obviously, this could change if I somehow end up disliking Cinder but I doubt that will happen. Reading these will also add more retellings to my bookish world and I’m excited about that.
5. Across the Universe Trilogy
Again, more specifically, the last two books in the trilogy. That also means that again, I already kept Across the Universe (I think… I’m actually going to go check… Yes okay I did keep it in #5). So I’m also going to keep these two novels so that when I, hopefully, love the first novel, I’ll be able to continue on with books. I’m just so upset about the covers change because I don’t like the new covers but the third book doesn’t have the original cover at all! So that’s going to be hard when I go to buy these books.
That’s all for today, folks! I’m keeping every single one of the books on this post. I feel like its good and bad. Yay for wanting to read books but also boo for having so many books to read and being in a constant reading slump. Anyway, have you read any of these books? Did you like them? Tell me a little bit about it in the comments.
