Freeze Frame by Heidi Ayarbe

I’d forgotten about this book or what it’s about. But it sounds really cool and it has really high ratings.

Verdict:  Stays

Last Night I Sang to the Monster by Benjamin Alire Sanez

First of all, this book has such a cool title! Secondly, once again, it sounds really interesting and it has really high ratings.

Verdict: Stays

Life as I know It by Melanie Rose

It sounds like a fun, quirky contemp. But I just don’t see myself picking it up anytime soon.

Verdict: Goes

The Legend of Sigurd and Gurdun by J. R. R. Tolkien

To be perfectly honest, I don’t know when and if I will read this book. However, it’s Tolkien and I own it and I just can’t bring myself to remove it.

Verdict: Stays

Jumanji by Chris van Allsburg

This sounds like a fun little book. But I’ve seen the film and I don’t have any particular desire to read the book.

Verdict: Goes

A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar

I really loved the film and I would like to read the book as well.

Verdict: Stays

The Pursuit of Happiness by Chris Gardner

I’ve seen the film many times and I really love it. However, I’ve heard that the book itself is not that well written and I feel like I know the story, I know the struggles that this man went through. So I don’t think I will be picking it up anytime soon.

Verdict: Goes

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris

I certainly want to read this. Though it is the second book in the series. I should probably read the first one first.

Verdict: Stays

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

I’ve seen the film. And I liked it. It was good, but I did have some problems with it. I’ve read one Nicholas Sparks book before and it was okay, but I’m not a huge fan. So, I don’t think I’ll be reading this.

Verdict: Goes

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I’ve also seen the film for this and really enjoyed it. Plus, I really liked The Great Gatsby, so I want to give this a try as well.

Verdict: Stays
