Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today Top Ten Tuesday is being twisted a liiitle bit to fit into my life right now. And well, because I need help! As you may know from my monthly wrap-up, my husband and I have recently bought a house and we’ll be moving in the fall. Now, I’ve collected quite a few physical books over the years (especially since I started blogging), and I urgently need to unhaul. Like, before we move, so I don’t need to unnecessarily move all these books I’m not gonna keep and don’t have room for anyway.
For the ones I’ve read, it’s a relatively easy decision: if I loved it and think I’ll re-read it some day, it’s a keeper. If I didn’t, it’s a goner. But unfortunately, I’ve also collected a lot of books I haven’t even read yet. (OH THE SHAME) So the choice is even harder for these ones, because who knows what lovely gems I could be unhauling?
So I need your help! Below are the ten books I’m in conflict over the most. Please give me your opinions if you see any books that you read and LOVED or HATED/STRONGLY DISLIKED so I can take this into account. My indecisive self will be very thankful 🙂
THAT’S WHAT I CALL STARTING THIS POST WITH A BANG!
But seriously, I’ve read so many RAVE reviews about this series by book bloggers and vloggers I trust. I started the first 100 pages or so and enjoyed it even though it did not blew my mind yet either. But then I hit a reading slump and I never picked it up again. It’s been lying on my nightstand for months and I just have no desire to continue reading. So what should I do? Try again anyway or just give up and call this series a ‘not my cup of tea’?
I got this book in a Fairyloot box but I don’t know if it’s for me. Russian folklore sounds nice, but this book also just sounds really weird so I don’t know…
I watched the movie. I liked it. I already cried my heart out. Do I really want to relive that in book format?
I’m torn because it’s Rainbow Rowell and I love all other books I’ve read by her so far. But 1) I’ve had this book on my shelf for years with no desire to pick it up and 2) I heard it’s kind of problematic?
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven holds a special place in my (broken because of this book) heart, so naturally I got her second book as soon as it came out… and then never read it. My interest has since kind of dwindled… Should I still give it a chance?
I like assassins and revenge stories, so this story got my attention. But it’s been on my shelf for about 2 years now and I read some bad reviews that made my interest lessen.
I know, I know, this is such a recent release, why am I even thinking of unhauling it already? Well, I got it in a Fairyloot box, but truthfully the plot never really intrigued me enough and I’m just not sure I’ll ever read it.
I still like the idea of this book, but I don’t have any inclination to pick it up. Should I still keep it for a time when I may be in the mood for it, or just give up already?
When this book came out, I NEEDED to get it. It was when I first started blogging and the hype was there so I got it. And I’ve never read it since and don’t really remember why I wanted to read it so badly.
Ahh this one kills me because I love Lauren Graham and I want to try her writing, but I’ve had this book for yeeaaars and haven’t picked it up. Should I just forget about it?
