This was originally made by Lost in a Story, and is such a fantastic idea.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

The Sin Eater’s Daughter (The Sin Eater’s Daughter #1) by Melinda Salisbury

Date added: November 2, 2016

This screams fantasy Shatter Me, which if you didn’t catch my scathing review, I loathed. So no, noper, nopeeees.

Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) by Sarah Rees Brennan

Date added: November 4, 2016

Okay this sounds fun. Quirky girl with an imaginary friend…who is actually real. I am really hoping the rest of the world building has a darker feel like The Hazel Wood.

Fantasy of Frost (The Tainted Accords #1) by Kelly St. Clare

Date added: November 10, 2016

The synopsis of this is pretty cryptic. I like the idea that the character has no idea what they look like. Unfortunately, that will make it hard for me to visualize…but if the world building is sufficient I shouldn’t notice too much. This sounds like a Fire/Ice elemental story, but without the typical tropes. But, that could mostly be due to the fact that I have no idea what the book really is about besides 2 kingdoms.

Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper #1) by Kerri Maniscalco

Date added: November 12, 2016

Technically I have started this book already, I was intrigued but had to return my library book. Since then I have purchased my own copy…and just have to get around to reading it.
