 💫 Hi guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day! Today I bring you another part of our series, the book meme “Down the TBR Hole”, which I’m doing hoping that it will help me to reduce the number of books that are in my current TBR. 
My plan is to upload this meme every week where I’ll show you 5 books of which I’ll choose which one I’ll keep or get rid of. I want to make this weekly meme as interactive as possible, so I’ll be consulting a lot with you, to decide what to do. There will be those books which I’ll be interested in (Keep), those which I’ll not be interested in anymore (GO) and those which I’ll not be sure about, and with those, I’ll need your help. So please, let me know all your thoughts in the comments and I’ll be able to take my decision and let you know in the next post. 💫

I’m very happy because I’ve seen that you have participated a lot in the previous post, leaving me your comments, so I’m super excited to continue with this weekly meme.
If you’re doing the same meme right now, let me know so I can check your post out and leave my thoughts there 💖

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

|| Goodreads ||

Well as you know this is the book that the previous week was a “Maybe” for me, so I decided to ask you for help and after reading the comments and thinking about it, I made a decision.
I’ve been wanting to venture myself into the historical fiction genre for a while, but I never know what book to pick, so this sounds like the perfect option to try soon, plus, I’ve only seen positive comments and its rating in Goodreads is very good. so I think you already know what my decision will be then!…

☕️ #1 – The Wrath & the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn #1) by Renée Ahdieh

|| Goodreads ||

I’ve already read a book by Renée Ahdieh, Flame in the Mist, and although as I told you in THIS post, I’ll not continue with that duology, I enjoyed it a lot when I read it and that’s why I really want to try with this duology.
I love the blurb of this book, I think it’s engaging and it sounds like the kind of reading I used to enjoy a couple of years ago and, although I think my tastes have changed, I could still enjoy this one. It’s a story of revenge, passion, and treason and I’m on board just knowing that. Plus: I LOVE THESE NEW COVERS!

☕️ #2 – The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

|| Goodreads ||

Before I read The Cruel Prince, I was almost sure that I would let this book go, now, I know I want to read everything I find by the author.
The blurb already begins INCREDIBLE with the first paragraph. I love stories about evil fairies and knowing how Holly writes about them, I’m absolutely interested.

 💫 KEEP 💫

☕️ #3 – A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle #1) by Libba Bray

|| Goodreads ||

Honestly, it’s time to admit that I’m not interested in reading this book, not anymore. At the beginning there was a lot of hype around it and everybody talked about it, so I added it, but now that I read the blurb again, I feel that the only thing that I find interesting about it, is the visions thing, but beyond that, there’s not much more. I’ve also read average and even bad reviews of people I trust in, so I think it’s a fact
I still want to read something by Libba Bray and for that, I have another one of her works, so I’m fine with it

 💫 GO 💫

☕️ #4 – Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

|| Goodreads ||

Well, with this one, is like same thing as the previous book, a part of me feels so sorry to not to read it because it’s a Maggie Stiefvater’s book, and I love her, in fact The Raven Cycle is one of my favorite series, but I have to be honest with myself, I think I’ll never read this book. I’ve had it forever, seriously, and I’ve never really wanted to pick it up so that tells you something. I have other books by the author that I’m more interested in, so I think it’s time to let this go. I’m sorry if you love this series, don’t kill me lol

 💫 GO 💫

☕️ #5 – Pivot Point (Pivot Point #1) by Kasie West

|| Goodreads ||

Two Words: Alternative Realities. I’m SUCH a fan of the concept that this book presents, and the fact that the main character can see several timelines towards the future sounds really good. I’m already excited to read this book.
I’ve never read a book by Kasie West, I know she’s known for her adorable contemporary romances, but this one sounds so good, I want to give it a chance soon

 💫 KEEP 💫


Removed: 2 Books!

  1. I really liked Pivot Point by Kasie West! It’s definitely not the best book, but I liked how original and different it was. Also, I definitely think you aren’t missing out on anything by removing Shiver from your TBR, it was incredibly dull. Amazing post 🙂

  2. The Darkest Part of the Forest is sooo good and some of the characters from Darkest Part of the Forest makes an appearance in Cruel Prince. I also loved Shiver, it’s a different take on werewolves and Maggie knows how to write a good story.

    1. OMG had no idea that characters crossed from one book to another! That’s so cool Now I’m excited because if I like Darkest Part of the Forest, that detail makes it even more amazing 😄
      I’m so glad you enjoyed Shiver, I know it’s one of those series that a lot of people love, and I agree, Maggie knows how to write captivatingly 😊

  3. I love that you’re doing Down the TBR Hole! I want to get to Between Shades of Gray eventually, even more so since there’s a movie already out. So, if you want to maybe buddy read it during the summer (from May onward), I would love to pick it up with you! Maybe that will give me more motivation to read it AT LAST 😂

    1. I had no idea that there was a movie, that makes it even more exciting! 😄
      It’s autumn where I live in May, but that’s fine because it’s the perfect weather for me to read it, so I LOVED to buddy read Between Shades of Gray with you, just choose the month, whatever you want, and let me know! ❤️

  4. I’ve had the same conflict with A Great and Terrible Beauty. I knew someone who loved those books, so they’ve kinda been on my radar, but I feel like they’re so dated now. I’d pass, too. Shiver’s actually turned me off from reading more from that author, which is a shame because I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Raven Boys. But I’m afraid because Shiver was so…needlessly melodramatic and ridiculous, the prose so exaggerated, that TRB is the same way. Did her style and storytelling mature with TRB? The Darkest Part of the Forest, tho? Pretty great. I think you’ll enjoy that one.

    1. Well, I think it’s a good decision if you feel that you’re not going to read it anymore, I know it can be difficult if you know someone who loves books, but I think we made the right decision, hopefully 💪🏻
      The only thing I’ve read about Maggie is The Raven Cycle series, so I can’t know if her writing mature in some way, you know?, but I personally LOVE these books, they’re extremely complex and the story only improves with each book, besides the characters are very diverse and transform themselves all the time. So, Would I recommend that you give it a try? Yes, I think they’re for everyone? Probably NOT, so I think it’s 50/50 with them. I know people who loved them as much as I do, and those people that believe it’s a messy plotline and they can’t understand, and I kind of get that as well, because they’re very unique books, so if you read them I hope you love them and that it will be a positive experience for you, honey 💕

  5. Before you read The Darkest Part of the Forest, I really recommend you read Tithe, Valiant and Ironside. All Holly’s faerie books have crossover characters and events in one book influence the others. It’s all really fascinating!!

  6. Between Shades Of Gray is excellent and The Wrath & The Dawn is good as well so I would definitely keep those! Shiver and the other books didn’t really impress me though. The Darkest Part Of The Forest and Pivot Point are also on my TBR.

  7. Hi,
    I discovered your blog by searching a review of “Radio Silence” and yours was really great! I really want to read that book, but I was hoping for it to be published in my mother language. Now I gave up with wating and I think I’ll read it in English.
    Anyways, I really liked the concept of this post and I agree with your choice for “Shiver”. I read it last year and was very disappointed, the story itself was nothing special, I didn’t like the characters and some things about the representation of werewolves. If you haven’t already read it, I recommend “The Scorpio Races” by Maggie Stiefvater, it’s way better than “Shiver”.

    1. Aw, it makes me so happy that you came across with my Radio Silence review and you liked it, it means a lot to me 💕 . I LOVE that book with all my heart!. Oh I get it, I’m not sure if it has been published in my mother language either, what is your mother language?, Mine is Spanish
      Oh, it’s a relief to know that you agree with my decision of Shiver, it’s difficult to decide but honestly, I feel that I like I’m not going to like it, I have Scorpio Races, so it will surely be the next one I’ll read by the author! 😊

      1. I hope I’ll love that book too! But I think I will.

        Oh wow, Spanish! Can I ask you a question? Why aren’t you writing the posts for your blog in Spanish?My mother language is Italian and I have been learning English in school for 10 years now. My level is acceptable, but I think that there is always something to adjust.

        I know that it is difficult, but you’ve made the right decision. I’ll love to hear your opinion about that book!

      2. You aren’t the first to ask me that, from the first moment I thought about having my own blog, I knew that I wanted it to be in English, for me it’s a way to learn the language daily and also it has given me the possibility of knowing a lot of people around the world and I love that. I read in English as well, so it made sense to me. Even so, I have some reviews in Spanish and I also like to write in my language 😊
