TTT: Should I or shouldn’t I? ft. Kathy doubting whether or not to keep certain books on her TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday

Don’t we all do it? Add books to our “want to read” on Goodreads like a lunatic the moment we see one or two words that convince us it’ll be the next best thing? Then we look back after a while and wonder whether it was the right call to make. Maybe we shouldn’t have added them that quickly? Maybe we should’ve read some more reviews? Maybe, just maybe we’re a bit too impulsive when it comes to buying books?

Knowing myself, I’d be nodding at every single question I just asked which is why.. it’s time to take a look at some of the upcoming releases I’ve been adding to my list these past couple of weeks. Time to take a critical look and see which ones I’m actually not so sure about anymore. Maybe, just maybe, you guys can convince me to keep them on the TBR – or take them off it!

TTT general

So, let’s take a look at the “Upcoming Releases I’m On The Fence About” and.. help me make up my mind!

All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out!

The BeholderSlayer (Slayer, #1)Destroy All MonstersA Dress for the Wicked

I added The Beholder after coming across it during my upcoming releases-search. I absolutely love that cover – totally gives me pirate-vibes and the blurb doesn’t sound bad at all either! However, it does sound like there’s going to be a huge focus on romance while I’d rather have pirate-y action? So I’m not sure? [I also tried requesting an ARC and got denied, surprise surprise, so now it’s even more on the not sure-pile..]
As for Slayer by Kiersten White? I guess it’s weird I’m adding it to this post since I’m actually very keen on reading it – hello Buffy the Vampire Slayer-youth! But on the other hand.. I didn’t really enjoy White’s Paranormalcy-trilogy so.. help?
Destroy All Monsters by Sam J. Miller sounds like an amazing read with a focus on friendship and mental health. For some reason though, I’m still not sure about it? I can’t even pinpoint why exactly. What do you think?
I absolutely love the cover of A Dress for the Wicked. And the title intrigues me to no end as well! But.. it’s historical fiction and that’s very often a hit or miss for me personally. Goodreads speaks about historical fiction and contemporary fans flocking for this story and, even though I am a contemporary fan, I’m just not sure whether it’s something for me?

I know this is only four books and not ten, but overall I’m pretty set on not letting my Goodreads go too crazy lately so it was a challenge to already find these? In any case, I’d love to hear your thoughts on these books! Help me make up my mind – do I add them or do I leave them be?

What do you think? Which ones should I most definitely add?
Are there books on here you’d never in a million years pick up?
What books are you on the fence about?

Feel free to leave a link to your TTT so I can try helping you out as well!
