Down the TBR Hole #6

Another week another down the TBR Hole. I feel like this week I’m not going to take that many books off my list.

Down the TBR Hole is a (very) bookish meme, originally created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. She has since combed through all of her TBR (very impressive) and diminished it by quite a bit, but the meme is still open to others! How to participate:

Let’s get started!

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order by 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 let it go?

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Summer 2019 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I feel like there are so many books that I want to read this summer but I’m going to narrow it down to just a few. I don’t think it’s going to be ten though because I don’t have time to read ten books this summer…

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I feel like I’ve had this book on my TBR since it came out four years ago and I still haven’t read it even though it has such great reviews. Hopefully I’ll get to it this summer.

Bad Romeo (Starcrossed, #1)

#2 Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven

I actually own the second book in this series but for some reason I don’t have this one. I do think I want to eventually read this book but for now I’m not really feeling it.

The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles, #1)

#1 The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

I actually own the whole series and I’ve wanted to read it for a while. I do want to eventually read all my unread books on my shelf and this is one of them.

Keep


A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)

#2 A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab

Another series in which I have all the books. I have heard only good things about this series and I know Schwab is a great writer so I’m definitely going to get to this eventually.

Keep


An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)

#3 An Ember in The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

This is also a series that I have heard great things about so I most likely will also want to eventually read this.

Keep


The Forbidden Wish (The Forbidden Wish, #1)

#4 The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

After reading the synopsis I don’t know if I want to read this book anymore. I do own it but I think for now I’m going to remove it and potentially maybe add it back later.

Go


The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen, #1)

#5 The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

I definitely want to read this especially after reading the synopsis. I have heard mixed reviews about the book and author but I’m willing to give it a try.

Keep

Well that’s it for today. I did end up keeping a majority of the books but that’s ok. I knew that I wasn’t going to get rid of the ones that I already own since I knew I wanted to read them when I bought them.

How many books are on your guys’ TBR?

Another sci fi series written by Amie and Jay??? Sign me the fuck up. I can’t wait for this one and hope it’s just as good as The Illuminae Files which I know it will be.

Sorcery of Thorns
June 4th 2019

This book just really appeals to me with the promise of sabotage, sorcery and most importantly libraries! There’s also the fact that the cover is absolutely gorgeous and I’m sucker for pretty covers.
