How Well Does Goodreads Know Me?

Hi readers!

So I saw this very fun meme at Fuzzy Bookworm, and I decided to do it too! The idea is to get 5 books that Goodreads recommends to me and then deciding if I will add them to my TBR or not! As a small twist to the meme, I will give Goodreads a grade from 1-5 of how good the recommendation was!

Goodreads says: Because you are currently reading Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians #1):

8709527

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Hummmm… I am not quite excited for another Richelle Mead book. I didn’t love Vampire Academy, and this seems to be in the same universe, so I will pass on it… (also, what is the connection to Crazy Rich Asians?)

Grade: 2

Goodreads says: Because you are currently reading Unseemly Science (The Fall of the Gas-Lit Empire, Book 2):

428042

Airborn by Kenneth Oppel

This sounds just up my alley! A steampunk novel with airships and fantasy, and Tamora Pierce gave it 5 stars. It reminds me of Airman by Eoin Colfer, which has been a favorite for over 10 years!! Adding immediately to my TBR!

Grade: 5

Goodreads says: Because you are currently reading White Teeth:

395182

Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis

I am not a big fan of satires… also, this has nothing to do with White Teeth at all.

Grade: 1

Goodreads says: Because you are currently reading Unseemly Science (The Fall of the Gas-Lit Empire, Book 2):

788331

He, She and It by Marge Piercy

This novel has a 3.98 rating, so it’s probably good, but the plot didn’t interest me much… it’s a regular dystopia with the world separated by zones (depending on your religion, it seems) and there’s a killer cyborg… Not too interested.

Grade: 2

Goodreads says: Because you are currently reading Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians #1):

16045137

The Adventuress by N. D. Coleridge

I love the cover of this! How fun! But the synopsis put me off completely: it’s about the girl on the cover, called Cathy Fox and I think her goal in life is to have adventures and such? It’s supposed to be funny, which, when it’s the first thing that can be said about a book, normally put me off. Still I would be more or less interested, but it’s actually not supposed to be a good book from the reviews I saw…

Grade: 3

Blog DividerSo, in the end Goodreads didn’t do too well, but that’s okay – I was very happy with the Steampunk recommendation!

Have you read any of those??
