Down the TBR Hole

Mini Reviews-4

It’s time for another edition of Down the TBR Hole, which is hosted by Lia @ Lost in a Story! This meme is dedicated to uncluttering your TBR pile, going through each book and choosing which one should stay or go.


The Books:

1. The Freemason’s Daughter by Shelley Sackier

26848834

This book is described as “The Outlander series for the YA audience” on Goodreads which both worries and intrigues me. I love the Outlander series but I’ve seen this comparison made before and found myself utterly disappointed. However, I just can’t help myself. I need to read it to find out.

The Verdict: Keep

2. Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham

24382227

This book sound intensely powerful. It’s about the Race Riot in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921. Unfortunately, racism, discrimination and violence due to prejudice and hatred still happen daily across the US and the world. I don’t know very much about this particular event but want to read this book to discover more.

The Verdict: Keep

3. The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

29566060

This book sounded awesome when I added it to my TBR earlier this year. Now, not so much. I have no interest in reading it whatsoever. Goodbye!

The Verdict: Remove 

4. Summer of Blood: The Peasants’ Revolt of 1381 by Dan Jones

6435078

I LOVE DAN JONES! I just finished another book of his and he has helped reignite my love of history. I used to enjoy reading history books but university kind of killed it for me. He just has a way to make everything come to life. ❤

The Verdict: Keep

5. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

15749186

I really need to read this series! Everyone I know has recommend this book to me. I just haven’t picked it up. I do plan on reading it real soon over my summer break. I need to see what all the fuss is about!

The Verdict: Keep


I only removed 1 book this week but I’m quite happy with the ones that I have decided to keep. Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?
