On Mondays I take the opportunity to clean up my TBR list. I ordered it in reverse chronological order from the date it was added. I looked at the oldest five books I’ve added on there and decided whether to keep them or delete them.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
There are so many mixed reviews for this book. I feel like this is one of those you either love or you hate. I read a sample and decided I did not care for the writing style.
Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1) by Jay Kristoff
I read a sample of this book and I loved it. The main character is so snarky, she reminds me of Caelena from Throne of Glass. I can’t wait to read it. It also sounds like a good audio book so I might listen to it instead.
Crown of Feathers by Nick Pau Preto
I think I’m just tired of sister feuds. I recently got fed up with One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake. I re-read the synopsis for this one and it no longer sounds appealing. I did not even feel like reading a sample.
I love dystopian novels. There’s something about seeing how different people react at the end of the world as they know it. I almost got lost in that sample. This book seems to be part of a series, and many on Goodreads are calling it a hidden gem. I will give it a try.
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
This sure is a beautiful cover. It’s probably what made me add this book to my TBR in the first place. I might have grown a bit tired of Chinese mythology lately. But I’m sure I will be in the mood eventually.
Just like that I got rid of two out of five books on my TBR, and I feel so free. Do you guys ever re-assess your never ending TBR? Anything you would have kept or deleted from mine?
