down the TBR hole

Down The TBR Hole #15

Since I am pretty much at the end of my TBR and am determined to read all the books yet to come I am just going to do a shout-out to 5 books on my TBR. (You all should definitely keep slashing down your TBRs, but right now there is no slashing to do for me :P).

I am simply going to continue with the books that I ended with last week:

The Books

This book has been nominated for several awards and it reminded me of The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night-Time by Mark Haddon, which I loved. The story is about Harri and his friend Dean who are trying to solve the murder of one of their classmates. It is said to be a story of wonder, mystery and danger and sounds great! I already own a copy of this book.

Dividing Eden by Joelle CharbonneauAfbeeldingsresultaat voor dividing eden joelle charbonneau

By the writer of The Testing trilogy, this book will come out this year. It sounds like a story of intrigue and betrayal, a brother and sister who are twins race for the crown. It sounds really good and the cover is very beautiful.

If you don’t know it yet, I’m a little obsessed with Sherlock Holmes and this is a book about Sherlock Holmes, so obviously I have to read it. It is set in the same era as the original stories and is said to have the same brilliance as the Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories.

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

I have removed this and put it then back on my tbr, I have heard very mixed things about it but it is so well-known that it must be good. I’ll just have to try and see, I guess.

The next novel by the brilliant writer of The Wrath & The Dawn, can’t be anything but good! I’m just waiting for it to come out so I can delve into another amazing world. It sounds like it is a Mulan retelling but I’m not sure and it is set in Japan I believe.

 

Are any of these books on your tbr? Or have you read them?

      1. When I didn’t do this challenge for a while, I had a major cull. I still have over 100 books on my tbr but at least they are books I do want to read, especially at this moment in time. Having and sticking to a monthly tbr is actually helping me as well so it is getting more under control.

    1. I’ll do that, I’ve heard a lot of positive things about To Kill a Mockingbird, so I’ll read that one day.
      I’m excited too!

      1. Well, we always add to it so I’m sure it’ll get long again and in need of some cuts. I need to do it, but I’m thinking of just going through and setting fire to the damn thing, it’s so long!

      2. Haha setting fire to it will definitely help cutting it down πŸ˜‚
        I’m sure it’ll get long and I’ll have to start all over, but it’s fun so I don’t mind
