This week’s topic is: books you’ve removed from your TBR. I usually have trouble coming up with five books for each topic (which is why I don’t participate on a regular basis 😆 ) but I had absolutely no issues for this one 🙂 !
Most of the books on this list is here simply because I lost interest, but some are here for a specific reason.
Anyway, onto the books:
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth When this was first coming out, I was really looking forward to reading this. I enjoyed the Divergent series (except Allegiant) and wanted to see what she did next. But then the book was released and there was this big controversy surrounding it, specifically with how it dealt with chronic pain. As I personally deal with chronic pain, I decided that I didn’t want to read it.
The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia This one was never really one that had me anxiously wanting to read it. I have never read anything by Kami Garcia before, but I went to one of her Author Talks because Sam from ThoughtsonTomes was moderating it. And it’s common courtesy to buy an author’s work if you go to one of their events, so I did. Don’t get me wrong, I was interested in it after hearing her talk about it, but I didn’t read it as soon as I got it home. So the longer it sat on my shelf, the less I wanted to read it
Dark Water by Tricia Rayburn I’m actually very disappointed that this is on this list. This is the third book in a trilogy and I absolutely loved the first one. I couldn’t get my hands on the other books fast enough…But then I read the second book and I felt like nothing happened. Like there was no need for it to even exist, and by the time I finished it, I just didn’t have the energy to read this one anymore 😦
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner I read The Maze Runner, the first book in this series on audio. I enjoyed it but felt as though the writing style didn’t quite meet the age of the characters portrayed in the movies. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it and everything I just think that this is a series that I prefer in movie form than book form.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber This one I might actually read one day, but since I didn’t read it as soon as it was released, I just don’t reach for it right now as I have so many other books ahead of it on my TBR.
So that’s all I have for this post! What are some books that you have taken off of your TBR pile?
Thanks for reading!
