Honestly, I don’t have any favorite bookmarks. I’m sure I could search online for some, but that seems like wasting some time. Instead, I’m going with
Ten Books I Recently Took Off My TBR and Why
The first 3 books were on the Huffington Post’s Oh, You Little Heartbreaker! The Ultimate List of Ugly Novels back in 2017. I had planned to read every book on the list. I got through most of them. Recently, I decided that I didn’t need to finish the list. The remaining books were ones that sounded good, but I just didn’t have interest in reading them. Plus, they weren’t available from my library.
1. Fighting Redemption
2. Against All Odds
3. 120 Days…
Number 4 is a book a might decide to go back an read at some time. I think it’s still on my Kindle. I have loved this author’s books that I have read, but I just see myself picking it up anytime soon.
I’m a fan of Claire Contreras’ books and wanted to read her entire back list. When I looked at reviews for this book/series, I realized that maybe I should stick to her newer releases.
5. The Devil’s Contract
Don’t yell at me too much for this one, friends. I’m not big into historical fiction, so I took this book off my TBR. That doesn’t mean I won’t eventually read it if in the mood. I just didn’t want to feel pressure to read it. I know that Amy Harmon can do no wrong.
6. From Sand and Ash
This is probably considered more of a DNF than a taking off the TBR, but I just couldn’t get into this book no matter how much I love Maggie Stiefvater’s writing. Off the TBR it goes. I do own it, so maybe someday? *Shrugs*
7. All Crooked Saints
I just don’t have a desire to read this one anymore. I’m not sure why.
I just decided that I am probably never going to get these books because they’re so long and there are so many of them. I’ve been avoiding them forever, so it was time to give up.
Another don’t hate me one… I took THUG off my TBR so I wouldn’t feel pressure to read it. I own a physical copy, so I will most likely read it someday. I just felt pressure to read it every time I looked at it and that made me not want to read it. Maybe I’m scared of the hype or something. I feel like I need to love it.
So… are there any of these you think I just HAVE to put back on my TBR? Tell me why!
