Welcome to what is probably going to be my most “controversial” anti-TBR yet. And that’s because I don’t add only old, moldy books most people don’t care about anyway. NOPE. This is the 2018 Released Edition, so all books below have been released this year and conquered hearts everywhere. In fact, I may have to go into hiding after this goes public.
Shadow of The Fox by Julie Kagawa
I’m not in the mood for young adult lately, even fantasy. So I am not so hyped for the new and shiny and wonderfully-rated books. I have heard really good things about this book, so maybe I’ll change my mind in the future, but at this point, I don’t want to commit to this book just yet.
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I actually gave up on this series already after reading book 1. I knowww… most people love these books. But I don’t love it, and honestly don’t have any curiosity about the last 2 books of the trilogy.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
This book was so hyped, and I don’t doubt it’s pretty good. But as said, I don’t feel like young adult fantasy so much lately. Also, the plot didn’t sound too interesting for me.
Save the Date by Morgan Matson
I’ve been really into rom coms lately. But… not YA rom coms. I just don’t relate to them a lot. I loved a few others (for example, A Quiet Kind of Thunder and When Dimple met Rishi), but I don’t really crave them.
Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake
I gave up on this series a long time ago. I don’t love the author’s writing style, so I read the first two books but won’t be reading the other ones.
Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris
I loved Behind Closed Doors and was very impressed by The Breakdown. So I was very sure I’d love this book, but the more I read reviews, the less interested I became. It just seems like this book isn’t quite as good as The Breakdown, which already isn’t as good as Behind Closed Doors, so… maybe I’ll just wait for her next book and hope it’s more gripping!
From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon
I loved When Dimple Met Rishi!! It was so cute and made me giggle a lot. But as said, I’m not really into YA rom coms, and this one sounds like another one, PLUS not quite as cute as Dimple, so I wasn’t too interested.
Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand
I love Furyborn, but somehow this one didn’t spark my curiosity. It actually was on my TBR for a while, but I grew increasingly disinterested… although I heard amazing things about it! Strange, huh.
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
I loved ACOTAR so muuuuch. But this series is 7 books long, and it’s been out for a while and I keep hearing that there are quite a few books that are just fillers… and so on. In the end, the cons about reading this series were too many and I lost interest at some point.
Red Clocks by Leni Zumas
I was actually very tempted to read this sci-fi, but I’ve read so many disappointed reviews it made me much less interested… have you read it? Should I give it a chance?
Lifel1k3 by Jay Kristoff
I… did not even read Nevernight yet. I KNOW. So I’m definitely not going to commit to a new book by the author when the only thing I’ve read by Jay Kristoff so far is Illuminae, which I liked but didn’t love.
Otherworld by Jason Segel, Kirsten Miller
Uh… just sounds rather generic. I also don’t have a great experience with books by actors.
