In the After Light by Alexandra Bracken

I actually just bought this book the other day. It’s high time I finish this series because I really did enjoy it and I want to know how it ends.

Verdict: Stays

In Time & Sparks Rise by Alexandra Bracken

I will remove these two just because they’re part of the novella bind-up that I also somewhere on my TBR and I don’t need them on there twice.

Verdict: Go



The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

I was a little bit disappointed by the first book, but I still want to finish this series since it’s only a duology and I did enjoy it overall.

Verdict: Stays

Girl in the Red Hood by Brittany Fichter

This sounds interesting and has some decent reviews, however it’s apparently the fourth book in the series and I didn’t even remember its existence until now, so…

Verdict: Goes

Spelled by Betsy Schow

I’ve never read a Wizard of Oz retelling and I kinda want to give it a go.

Verdict: Stays

Flunked by Jen Calonita

I feel like this has the potential to either be a great, fun middle grade, or a very cheesy and boring one. It has kind of mixed reviews though.

Verdict: Goes

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about this book and I am definitely interested in reading it.

Verdict: Stays

Curio by Evangeline Denmark

I find that I’ve really lost interest in this book.

Verdict: Goes

The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent

Meh, the cover and title are cool, but it’s a paranormal dystopian. Two genres I’m not very fussed about.

Verdict: Goes

  1. Great post!

    I personally have a few problems with Ahdieh’s writing, but each to their own. I’ll be interested to see if you think the second book gets better.

    I had Kite Runner on my TBR for so long. It is a great book though, I think it’s just something you need to be in the mood for when you pick it up though.

    If you’re interested in Wizard of Oz retellings you should have a look at Wicked as well!
