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!
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!
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!
