Down The TBR Hole #2

Down The TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story to help you tackle your Goodreads To-Be Read Shelf. Basically, we revisit our Goodreads TBR, select 5 or more titles chronologically and decide on whether to keep it or get rid of it. I was inspired by Melanie and Amy to start this series on my blog.

How it works:
➽ Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
➽ Order on ascending date added.
➽ Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
➽ Read the synopses of the books
➽ Decide: keep it or should it go?


So let’s get to the next 5 oldest books on my TBR.

1. Not Quite Dating (Not Quite #1) by Catherine Bybee: The blurb sounded good once upon a time. Doesn’t interest me anymore.

VERDICT: DELETE❌

2. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling: All the hype and praises make me want to give this book a try. Guess I’ll read an audio book of this before the year ends.

VERDICT: KEEP✔

3. The Selection(The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass: Just don’t feel like reading it anymore! Also, it being quite a lengthy series is not helping!

VERDICT: DELETE❌

4. Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella: Have heard such great things about this book from Somya and Damyanti and have been meaning to read this since! Seems quite fun and fluffy.

VERDICT: KEEP✔

5. Dilemmas of Desire: Teenage Girls Talk about Sexuality by Deborah L. Tolman: This book offers a look into adolescent sexuality and that very thing seems really important. I really want to read it but it’s insanely costly in my country. I guess I’ll keep it nd keep looking, if I get to buy it someday.

VERDICT: KEEP✔


So this is my list for the week. Let me know if any of it is in your TBR too or if you have already read any of these!💞

A Swoony Mysogynist Romance Tutoring Rape Culture|Review of Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting

PicsArt_11-02-08.14.42

Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting, features a hot steamy second chance romance with an eye candy of a book boyfriend.

I finished reading this a few days back and have been confused since, on how I felt about the novel and how I wanted to rate and review it. I did not like the two main characters and the narrative have been problematic a couple of times. But they were so major that I could not get over or overlook them. The more I think about it, the more angry I get.

FEMALE LEAD: LILAH

Lilah was really nagging in the second half of the story. The major complication put in the plot was that she could not get enough sleep Continue reading “A Swoony Mysogynist Romance Tutoring Rape Culture|Review of Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting”

So as Halloween’s just around the corner I thought of making a list of some of my absolute favorite books to get you ready for the spookiest day of the year.

Here I have compiled a list of 5 books, each belonging to a different sub-genre. These books are underrated but are bound to overwhelm you. And I cannot recommend them enough!

 

  1. Three Little Words by J. M. Robson: It is a Horror-Thriller novel with a solid back-story that made me fall in love with the book instantly. Here Robson, weaves an amazingly original story with the elements of horror, mystery, thrill and romance. This book is sinister and is bound to haunt you for some time.
