Mondays are when I take a look at my TBR on Goodreads and decide what I want to keep and what I want to delete. I ordered the list in reverse chronological order, I skipped the books I’ve already decided to keep in other weeks, and then I picked the next ten books to take a look at and decide whether I want to keep or delete 🙂
Autoboyography by Christina Lauren
I have a friend who I think would enjoy this book, which I believe was the main reason I added it. I think it’s not for me. The cover is so pretty though.
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
I really hope this is not one of those over hyped books in the blogging community. The synopsis looks interesting and it has great ratings. I have been hearing about it everywhere. I haven’t read a good suspense/thriller in a while. Looking forward to it.
Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson
I didn’t realize this is supposed to be a spinoff of the Remnant Chronicles series by the same author which I haven’t read. I read a sample of that first book a while ago and I did not like it. Also, some of the reviews from my Goodreads friends are not good.
Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane
I read in another blog, and sorry I don’t remember which one that was, that this book is about forgiveness. I am not a very forgiving person and have struggled with it all my life. I thought this would be an interesting book to learn from.
The Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz
A book about Disney villains trying to escape from their imprisonment on an island? Say no more, sign me up.
Educated by Tara Westover
Having come to this country at an early age from Communist Cuba, where learning is so limited and narrow minded, I struggled with the same issues the main character in this book seems to struggle with. Trying to reconcile my new eye opening education with my family’s narrow view of the world, and my struggle and failure to enlighten them in some way without becoming an outcast in their eyes. I think I will enjoy this book.
The Bookish Life of Neena Hill by Abbi Waxman
I always wanted to read about a bookish character who is forced to come out of her shell. Also, look at this adorable cover.
A Curious Beginning (Veronica Speedwell, #1) by Deanna Raybourn
This one has really great reviews and ratings on Goodreads, and it has been recommended by someone on my bookstagram (don’t remember who that was sorry).
The Black Veins (Dead Magic, #1) by Ashia Monet
I didn’t realize this book releases this week. If I was familiar with the author it would be an auto-read for me, but for now I will add it when I see more reviews on it.
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Everyone has loved A Sorcery of Thorns by this author. I will give this one a try after I see if I also like it.
I have been very bad adding books to my TBR this past week. Last week I was so proud I actually reached the bottom of the list. This week not so much.
Any opinions on any of these?

I love this idea so much! You inspired me to write myself. I’ve meaning to make one for sometime now, so thank you for the inspiration.
