Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!
This week’s (February 5th, 2019) topic is: Upcoming Releases We Are On the Fence About.
Since there are two of us running this blog (Melanie and Mireille), we’re going to break these memes up between us and each pick five!
My TBR is out-of-control. I easily have 500+ unread books on my shelves right now, so I’m going to try and be a little pickier with the books I pick up and series I start (wish my luck!). There are actually quite a few books this year that I’m still debating if I care enough to read.
Enchantée by Gita Trelease
I have no idea why this one isn’t piquing my interest the way it seems to be others but I’m really on the fence about if I care to read it or not.
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus
I was in the minority and really disliked this author’s debut novel, One of Us is Lying. I found it basic and frustrating. I am still debating whether I want to give the another another shot.
You Owe Me a Murder by Eileen Cook
I read With Malice by this author and was left feeling very unsatisfied. It’s strange because I couldn’t put the book down and then after it ended, I just felt “meh” about it.
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
I’m probably being judgy of this one because the title reminds me too much of Three Dark Crowsn, which I haven’t read yet. I don’t know, I’ll wait to see what people are saying about it and might eventually pick it up – it does sound like something I’d like.
The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston
I really didn’t like Geekerella – I kept getting bored. There wasn’t really anything wrong with it, it just wasn’t for me. However, this one features a female/female relationship – which is something I am always looking out for, so we’ll see.
This was pretty hard cause there are so many amazing books coming out this year but here are the fives that didn’t really grab my attention for some reason or another. I’m sorry if any are on your most anticipated list, it’s nothing personal, I still might end up buying some of these.
The Afterwards by EK Johnston
I don’t know if it’s because the synopsis or the cover but this one isn’t calling to me at all. I’ve never read anything by this author so it’s nothing about her writing or whatnot, it just doesn’t really grab my interest right now.
Sherwood by Meagan Spooner
I am so conflicted about this one. On one hand I love Robin Hood and am absolutely here for this gender bent retelling but on the other I read Hunted by her and didn’t care for it. So I think that for now I will leave it be and maybe, and it’s a very loose maybe, check it out eventually.
Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I know a lot of readers out there love this author, I have never read anything by her but I always read the synopsis and they never seemed to pique my interest. So maybe one day, I don’t know.
The Red Scroll of Magic by Cassandra Clare & Wesley Chu
Ok this one is mainly because there are too many books in the Shadowhunter universe that I don’t know if I want to read them or not.
Stolen Time by Danielle Rollins
I love a good time travelling story but I don’t know this one isn’t grabbing my attention at all. Plus the cover is a little bland. Might end up getting it, who knows.
Do you feel like us about any of these? What are books you are on the fence about?
