Down The TBR Hole #9 // more unpopular opinions

Hey everyone! I know I just posted one of these, but I was really in the mood to make another one. So here we are. I’m excited to get started! This meme was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story. This is how it works:

  • 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?

My TBR now sits at 91 books. You can find my previous posts in this series here.

Fire Colour One by Jenny Valentine

I have absolutely no idea what this is about or how it got here. Byeeeee

VERDICT: GO


Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

This is such a well-loved classic. I know I’ll never get this assigned in school, so I would have to read it in my free time. I think that’ll happen one day, but not anytime soon.

VERDICT: GO


The Martian by Andy Weir

I have heard this is really funny and that’s the main reason I put it on my TBR. However, I have seen parts of the movie and I already know how it ends. I don’t think I’ll ever actually read this.

VERDICT: GO


Everything All at Once by Katrina Leno

I’m in doubt. I’m still interested in the blurb and it reminds me of 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson, which I used to love. However, I don’t know if I’m interested enough to buy it. I might give Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno a chance first.

VERDICT: KEEP (for now)


The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

This sounds SO interesting and I’ve heard nothing but glowing reviews. I don’t know how I’ll get access to it, but I’m not getting rid of it.

VERDICT: KEEP


DTTH 9


And I Darken by Kiersten White

What was I thinking?

VERDICT: GO


Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee

I put this on my TBR because of the asexual representation. However, I don’t particularly care about the other aspects of the book. I have never read anything by Tolstoy nor am I wanting too.

VERDICT: GO


None of the Above by I. W. Gregorio

I definitely want to pick this up. Since it’s on Scribd, I now have access to it as well.

VERDICT: KEEP


They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

I’ve almost bought this book several times, but I’ve never actually done it. I think I always want to pick it up because of the hype, but I hold back because I didn’t enjoy the first chapter. I think I’ll read What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli first, because I know I love Albertalli’s writing. Based on what I think of that book, I’ll see what I’ll do with this one.

VERDICT: GO (How scandalous!)


The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik by David Arnold

I absolutely adore Kids of Appetite by the same author and enjoyed Mosquitoland as well. I don’t even care what this book is about. It’s by David Arnold, so I’m reading it.

VERDICT: KEEP (of course)


BOOKS KEPT: 4
BOOKS GOTTEN RID OF: 6
CURRENT TBR TOTAL: 85

What do you think? Would you have chosen differently? 


I hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for reading! See you next time!

Love,

  1. Good job on your progress! I loved, loved, a long way to a small and angry planet by Becky Chambers. So fun, good feels, really diverse and nothing but good to say. I can’t wait for the next book to the trilogy (series..idk) comes out this year.
