Angelfall by Susan Ee
I’m pretty conflicted about this one. On the one hand, I don’t have any particular desire to pick it up anytime soon because I’m rarely in the mood for paranormal. On the other hand, sometimes I am in the mood for paranormal and one of my friends read it and said it was good and we generally have similar taste in books.
Verdict: Stays for now
The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
I keep hearing amazing things about this series, so I kinda want to read it.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
This one of those books that I really want to read, but somehow never get to. Maybe if I get my TBR to a manageable size (as if), I’ll actually get to the books I want to read?
Out of My Later Years: The Scientist, Philosopher, and Man Portrayed Through His Own Words by Albert Einstein
I do want to read this, but I want to get rid of books on my TBR list and I feel like this is going to be one of those books that I see in a store one time and just buy it, so I don’t see the point of having it on my TBR list.
Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
I’m going to tell you a secret. I have no idea what this book is about (I’m trying not to read the synopses. If I can’t remember what it’s about, I probably don’t want to read it badly enough). I don’t think I ever knew what this book was about, but I know exactly why I added it. And it’s a pretty stupid reason. I added it because there is one episode in Buffy the Vampire Slayer where this book is mentioned and I love that show. Yeah… I know.
Hamlet by William Shakespeare
I really need to read this. It’s a play, for goodness’ sake. It would take me like half an hour.
C. S. Lewis: A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet by Alister McGrath
I love C.S. Lewis and I do want to know more about him, but… I don’t see myself picking this up anytime soon. I still have a lot of his books to read and I feel like his own thoughts and writings are a far superior way of learning about him than some biography.
Split by Swati Avasti
This book has the potential to be so good and every time I see it, I’m scared that it won’t be so i end up not picking it up. But I have to get over this irrationality and pick it up, because it sounds really good.
Poemele Luminii (Poems of Light) by Lucian Blaga
This guy is one of the Romanian poets that I enjoyed studying. I’m really curious to read more of his poetry, but at the same time, I don’t think it’s necessary to have this on my TBR. Especially that I’m pretty sure my family owns this book, so I can just pick it up at some point when I’m in the mood for poetry and read from it. I don’t need a reminder.
Trilogia Culturii (The Trilogy of Culture) by Lucian Blaga
So, this guy was also a philosopher. I studied a little bit of his philosophy and I like the way he thinks. I would like to read more of his writings, but I don’t see myself doing so in the near future. So I think I’ll get rid of these for now.
Trilogia Cunoasterii (The Trilogy of Knowledge) by Lucian Blaga
One thought on “Down the TBR Hole #15”
