Down The TBR Hole #7

Down the TBR Hole is a weekly feature involving going through my TBR on Goodreads and sorting out the keep from the ditch.

Down The TBR Hole

This weekly meme was created by Lia @ ImaginaryPlacesOnPaper and the rules are simple:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books.
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

1. All These Things I’ve Done

Author: Gabriella Zevin

Date Added: 9th January 2016

Synopsis Link: Here

Decision: Yes, I’d forgotten all about this book buried deep within a long list of books I want to read.

2. The Falconer

Author: Elizabeth May

Date Added: January 9th 2016

Synopsis Link: Here

Decision:  Yes, not a top priority but I’d like to think I’ll get around to reading it at some point. When I was younger I loved historical fiction and this actually sounds similar to a writing project I had a few years back, so it would be interesting to see what it was like.

3. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Author: Lisa See

Date Added: January 9th 2016

Synopsis Link: Here

Decision: No, although it does seem interesting with quite a high rating, so I may come back to it later.

4. A Court of Thorns and Roses

Author: Sarah J Maas

Date Added: January 9th 2016

Synopsis Link: Here

Decision:  Yes, although I’m not too sure whether I’ll enjoy ito r not. I don’t find Maas’ worth the great amount of hype around them, and I’d like to give the series time to be published so that if I do become addicted, I’m not waiting for years in between each book.

5. Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires #1)

Author: Rachael Caine

Date Added: January 9th 2016

Synopsis Link: Here

Decision: Yes! I’d completely forgotten all about this series! It was recommended to me years ago and I’ve never gotten around to it. Maybe it’s one for my Beat the Backlist 2017 challenge.

  1. Elizabeth May’s series is very good! Not perfect, but VERY enjoyable. Also, ACOTAR is (so far, obviously haven’t read the last book yet) an awesome read! The first book is not anywhere near as good as the second, mostly because….er…not sure how to say without spoilers, so. But if you decide to read it, I’d definitely read the first AND the second before deciding if it’s good or not. I was iffy until I read book 2.

  2. I remember reading the first book in the morganville vampires’ series and I liked it back then, I should give it a reread and see if I still want to commit to it since it’s a long series.

    I have been meaning to add a court or torns and roses to my tbr but I keep hearing mixed reviews about it so I think I’m letting the hype die down a bit so I can forget and go into it with no expectations at all.

    • Same here – I keep wanting to start ACOTAR but when I read the first couple of pages I wasn’t super interested. I’m a regular reader of adult fantasy (Robin Hobb, GRRM, etc) so I find YA fantasy isn’t as readable as it’s hyped up to be.
