Down the TBR Hole #22 || Book Meme

Hello beautiful people!

Two weeks in a row … I feel almighty! Seriously though, I’ve been adding SO MANY BOOKS to my Goodreads want to read list that these posts are borderline a MUST!

Well, let’s just jump right in!

The Creator and the Rules

This was created by Lia @ Lost in a Story — she has a new blog though called Sunflowers and Wonder!

  1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  2. Order on ascending date added.
  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
  4. Read the synopses of the books.
  5. Decide: keep it or should it go?
  6. Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Book #176 | Note to Self by Connor Franta

Date Added: May 10, 2017

Synopsis: In his New York Times bestselling memoir, A Work in Progress, Connor Franta shared his journey from small-town Midwestern boy to full-fledged Internet sensation. Exploring his past with humor and astounding insight, Connor reminded his fans of why they first fell in love with him on YouTube—and revealed to newcomers how he relates to his millions of dedicated followers.

Now, two years later, Connor is ready to bring to light a side of himself he’s rarely shown on or off camera […]

Verdict: KEEP

To be frank, I can’t even remember how I discovered this book … I’m going to assume through you lot or Instagram. But I still REALLY want to pick this up … I just apparently forgot.


Book #177 | Finding Nevo by Nevo Zisin

Date Added: May 10, 2017

Synopsis: Meet Nevo: girl, boy, he, she, him, her, they, them, daughter, son, teacher, student, friend, gay, bi, lesbian, trans, homo, Jew, dyke, masculine, feminine, androgynous, queer. Nevo was not born in the wrong body. Nevo just wants everyone to catch up with all that Nevo is. Personal, political and passionate, Finding Nevo is an autobiography about gender and everything that comes with it.

Verdict: KEEP

Oh my gooooooosh! WHY HAVE I NOT PICKED THIS UP?! I remember SO many of you saying I needed to read it ASAP and I still haven’t … okay … adding this to the 2020 TBR list.


Book #178 | The Cruel Prince (Book #1) by Holly Black

Date Added: May 11, 2017

Synopsis: Jude was seven when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him—and face the consequences […]

Verdict: KEEP

Another book I deliberately didn’t read because the series was incomplete. However, I’m pretty sure it’s either done or almost done … thinking this should be on my Spring or Summer reading list for this year.


Book #179 | The Magical Worlds of Harry Potter by David Colbert

Date Added: May 11, 2017

Synopsis: J.K. Rowling fills her books with references to history, myths, legends and literature. This text presents the stories behind the stories. It includes encounters with wizards like Circe and Merlin, and real-life alchemists of the middle ages. Adding to the experience are writers as varied as William Shakespeare, Gustave Flaubert, Charles Dickens, Ovid, John Donne, J.R.R. Tolkien and Ursula K. Le Guin.

Verdict: GO

Don’t get me wrong … I love Harry Potter! But I’ve just had enough with all these additional books to compliment the series and such … I feel like it’s slowly taking away from the beauty of the original series, you know?


Book #180 | Spellslinger (Book #1) by Sebastien de Castell

Date Added: May 12, 2017

Synopsis: Kellen is moments away from facing his first mage’s duel and the start of four trials that will make him a spellcaster. There’s just one problem: his magic is gone. As his sixteenth birthday approaches, Kellen falls back on his cunning in a bid to avoid total disgrace. But when a daring stranger arrives in town, she challenges Kellen to take a different path. Ferius Parfax is one of the mysterious Argosi – a traveller who lives by her wits and the three decks of cards she carries. She’s difficult and unpredictable, but she may be Kellen’s only hope…

Verdict: KEEP

I’m still not wanting to read this just yet, but I have a feeling I’m going to really enjoy this once I start!
