Down the TBR Hole #4

This meme was originally created over at Lia @ Lost in a Story! It is incredibly fun while being productive and making me feel better about my TBR shelf since there are so many books, and not enough time to read them in! Honestly, life is too short to have books that you’re likely not going to read. Let’s do it.

Books 16-20

16: We Can Be Mended (Divergent, #3.5)by Veronica Roth

At this point, I just really don’t care about the Divergent series, and like everyone else in the world, I HATED Allegiant. Why bother?

Final Verdict:

17: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Hey look, it’s another YA dystopian that I don’t even care about! (That was harsh, I’m sorry), but at this point in my life, I’m burnt out from dystopian as a whole and pretty burnt out from sci-fi in general too).

Final Verdict:

18: Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher

I’m pretty sure I added this because of ReadbyZoe back in 2016, but I literally have never thought about this book since then. I do not have a single cell in this body that actively wants to read this one.

Final Verdict:

19: The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Yes, I really liked the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series, but that doesn’t mean I have to read this one. I don’t really care much about it, but I’m still mediocrely interested. Let me know in the comments whether you think it’s worth it, though.

Final Verdict:

20: The Rose and the Dagger by Reneé Ahdieh

Wow, I must’ve been really confident that I would like this series enough to dive into the second book straight after. This is definitely going to be an easy remove for me since I haven’t even read the Wrath and the Dawn yet.

This round was really brutal, even for me. But honestly, I’m so happy to have them cleared off the shelf and focus on books I genuinely am dying to release (shoutout to all the cute Asian 2019 rom-coms, yay!)

What do you guys think of this meme thus far? For my fellow bloggers, have you tried this meme yet? What books from this list do you think I should add back to my TBR, and which ones do you think I was right to remove?

  1. i can feel the salt in this post and im living for it. honestly you’ve done yourself a favour by removing delirium, it was one of the most painstakingly boring dystopian books and gosh, each book gets more drawn out

    dude, i got spoiled for the divergent trilogy and since then i had no desire to read it so agreeeeee. im side eyeing you for the rose and the dagger but we shall not bring that up or ill cry.

    great postttt ❤

    1. Aww thank you! ❤ I’m even more sure of my decision to remove Delirium, I’m so over dystopians right now. Allegiant was terrible and honestly, I don’t think you should bother with Divergent at all now. I MAY read the Wrath and the Dawn at some point soooo we’ll see!

  2. Wow that was harsh haha, but at least you can focus on books you’re excited about so yay for that! I personally love Delirium so, so much, but I get your removal here if you’re not into it anymore 🙂 I also really loved The Wrath and The Dawn series, but yeah, best to remove the sequel if you haven’t tried out the first book just yet, you never know if you’ll enjoy it or not 🙂
    Happy reading!! 🙂

    1. Happy reading to you too Marie! I’m glad that you liked Delirium and the Wrath and the Dawn, and I really hope I can try the latter some day and love it as much as everyone else does. I’ll definitely be removing less books as the meme goes on though, so hopefully I won’t be as harsh, haha!

  3. The Summer I Turned Pretty is definitely very different from TATBILB, so I’d say you could take it or leave it. I liked it, but Belly is a fairly annoying character at times. So you probably wouldn’t be missing too much by skipping that one.
