While I’m still in the throws of PitchWars, I am making myself clip the TBR pile because it’s currently overwhelming…
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
To be honest this sounds so strange – a Peter Pan retelling-ish that’s dark and twisty, and I’ve heard little of “Brom” but enough to know their name and… yeah I’ll keep this.
Let’s be honest – the cover isn’t the best. It doesn’t really give a sense of what the story is about BUT – I never try to judge a book by its cover, and the synopsis sounds cool (witch and knight and power and CRUSADES) as well as the reviews, so I’ll give this one a go.
I’ve heard SO MUCH about this book and most of my friends love it so I’m not getting rid of this at all. I can only hope someone buys it for my birthday or something because I never seem to have it top of my list :S
There’s been some half and half reviews on this and to be honest my heart isn’t into the story premise… though I know I should read books I don’t think I’ll like, I’m not sure this is one I want to keep immeditely.
This sounds intriguing – phantoms, darkness, fantasy – but also according to reviews, confusing. A very tentative keep…
The consensus with is… as well as what I’ve actually heard from friends – is that the romance gets in the way of plot with this one. And right now I’m not in the mood. The author is absolutely lovely but I’ll check out her other works instead.
Two of my favourite authors have waxed lyrical over this magical book and so I’M KEEPING IT.
DECISION: KEEP DAMNIT
Zoraida Cordova is an author I’ve yet to read – I know, bad Jade – but I remember putting this one on my list ages ago and then recognising her name because her premises always sound amazing. So I’ll..
DECISION: KEEPITY KEEP KEEP
I am such a sucker for an Arthurian tale, and this centers on young Merlin and – while I’m not 100% sure that this will be a book for me I’ll give it a go.
I AM SUPPOSED TO BE GETTING RID OF BOOKS NOT KEEPING THEM ALL BUT THIS SOUNDS SO COOL I AM KEEPING.
Honestly…. I will continue doing this exercise because I need to narrow this down but it’s not working as much as I hoped because I want to read ALL THE THINGS.
