As of today, my TBR is down to 63 books, because I automatically deleted the next one for the Three Dark Crowns series. I decided not to continue with the series after reading One Dark Crown and being highly disappointed. Once again, I ordered the books on my Goodreads TBR in reverse chronological order, and I took a look at the first five not counting the ones I’ve already decided to keep in other Mondays.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
I bought this one on Mother’s day, and I cannot wait to read it. The sample I read was amazing, and it has great reviews on Goodreads. A lot of friends on my bookstagram recommended it as well.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I’m so ashamed I still haven’t read this one. I’ve heard great things about it, and the sample I read was great. Now I just have to get to it.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.” (Goodreads)
With a description beginning with that how can I not be intrigued?
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
The description of this book sounds a little like a fairy tale. The whole step-mother thing reminds me of Cinderella. I do love fairy tales, but this one doesn’t sound appealing.
The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson
Let me start by saying that I hate this cover. It doesn’t have many reviews on Goodreads, which makes me think this was just another of those hyped up books. I also read the sample and it didn’t sound appealing.
Have you read any of these? Would you keep or delete them?
