This was originally made by Lost in a Story, and is such a fantastic idea. Here are the instructions:

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?

The Books:

And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich

Date added: October 25, 2016

What was I thinking? This book sounds creepy AF! A man in the basement with no eyes? What is this Pans Labyrinth with a cursed house and an encroaching forest?



18401393Book # 112

The Martian by Andy Weir

Date added: October 25, 2016

I read Artemis, and I like Weir’s humor. I also enjoyed what portion of the movie that I saw. Will most likely enjoy this via audiobook, but still want to get the book in.

Fate of Flames (Effigies #1) by

Date added: October 25, 2016

Something about this synopsis made me think of Captain Planet and that made me not take it seriously. Plus, I am a little burnt out on elemental books.



29008738Book #114

The Bird and the Sword (The Bird and the Sword Chronicles #1) by Amy Harmon

Date added: October 31, 2016

Oh I love that this is about someone who’s powers were repressed and just maybe they rise to the occasion after all. I am intrigued.

Assassin’s Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy #1) by Robin Hobb

Date added: November 1, 2016

I have never read a Hobb book (shields herself from the rotten tomatoes) but I really want to! This one sounds super fun, because ya know your girl likes assassin books. But I mean, magical kinship with animals? I’m here for it.



Starting TBR shelf total: 418

Total books kept: 3 of 5

I’m Curious  \ ^_^ /

What do you think of my decisions? Have you read any of these books?
