Hello Book Ravens!
Originally I had planned to talk about Black Panther – and why I’m obsessed with it – but then Thursday came…and for whatever reason, I really didn’t feel like writing it.
So that’s turned into the plan for next week, and instead, I’ll do another Down the TBR Hole.
Previously on Down the TBR Hole…
This tag was created by Lost in a Story – basically it helps you go through your TBR, and also gives you blog post ideas! I enjoyed reading it on Jess’s blog, so I figured I’d give it a go.
So as I go through I’ll talk about the books, why I added them to my GoodReads TBR, and decide whether to keep them or remove them.
Batman: Nightwalker – Marie Lu
I’ve heard mixed things about this book, but I really love Marie Lu, So I’m willing to give it a shot (even though, admittedly, Batman is one of my least-favorite superheroes).
Wonder Woman: Warbringer – Leigh Bardugo
I actually have this one on my shelf, and I really like Leigh Bardugo. Plus it seems like it’d have Greek Mythology references, which you know I’m here for.
So this one I’m likely to get to soon.
Catwoman: Soulstealer – Sarah J. Maas
Can you see a theme yet?
Catwoman seems like it could be amazing – especially because it has Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, and that could be a pretty badass team.
But I’m unsure whether Maas’, while a talented writer, will be able to pull this off. But I’m still intrigued.
Superman – Matt de la Pena
Last Superhero one, I promise! If I end up not liking or not finishing the other books, then I’m going to forget about this one.
I’ve never read a book by Matt de la Pena, but I do really like Superman (definitely one of my favorite DC characters) so I’m going to wait until closer to the release date to be sure.
The World of Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas
Ehhhh…I love when authors have books talking about their worlds, but I still haven’t read Heir of Fire, and I don’t plan to.
Spellslinger – Sebastien de Castell
I love books like this with magicians and magic – and a tournament, which is right up my alley?? – but I added this book early last year, and I haven’t thought about it since.
And I will probably forget about it again. So…
Lucky in Love – Kasie West
I don’t read contemporary often, but I like how easy it is to read West’s books. But this specific book, I’m not too interested in.
By Your Side – Kasie West
I’m keeping this one for the above reasons, and also Tyr Carter read and enjoyed this one.
And if Tyr likes it, I should probably try it 👍
Just A Few Inches – Tara St. Pierre
This one is interesting because it seems fun and also I love when a character learns self-confidence\body acceptance…but it also seems like it’s will 100% have tropes that I hate.
I’m just not that interested.
Fallen Grace – Katie Roman
This one sounds cool…but the cover is throwing me off and I’m not interested enough to ever pick it up.
Original TBR: 177
