Down the TBR Hole 1.10 // Unreleased – Part 1/4 End of 2018

Down the TBR Hole - Explination

Today we’re looking at all the books I’ve had on my Unreleased shelf for what feels like ages that come out this year!

Now, I expect my unreleased books are going to be harder to purge since they’re not out yet!

Most likely these books will have little to no reviews and some won’t have all that much information on their Goodreads pages.

I’m someone who depends quite heavily on other people’s reviews to help me decide if I want to read a book or not.

I just hate buying into the hype of a book and then wasting my money on buying a copy or wasting my time reading a book (bought or borrowed) so I tend to steer clear of books until they’ve been out for a while and the reviews have well and truly come in!

I’m picky and I know what I do and don’t like and sometimes the only way to figure out which books I’ll like is to read through reviews first!

So this time around, and the next few Down the TBR Hole posts will have very little books being dumped.

I won’t be including books from my auto-buy authors because I’ve decided to give them their own shelf and there’s very little that can deter me from reading my auto-buy authors’ books. Mind you, it’s not like I have that many!

Let’s not delay any longer and get right into it!

I added this because…
This sounds weird and I think I might be into it?
Stay or Go? Stay! Moving to the Unreleased Undecided shelf!

2.│(Don’t) Call Me Crazy│Kelly Jensen│October 2 2018│🧠│
I added this because…It’s an anthology on mental health and Victoria Schwab is part of it so I have to read it.
Stay or Go? Stay!

3.│Broken Things│Lauren Oliver│October 2 2018│➕│
I added this because…Honestly? It was the cover.
Stay or Go? Go! Apparently, the fat rep is really bad and I don’t want to put myself through that.

4.│Shadow of the Fox│Shadow of the Fox #1│Julie Kagawa│October 2 2018│
I added this because…Listen, I see fox and I’m going to add it to my TBR. I don’t make the rules. They just are.
Stay or Go? Stay!

5.│Blanca & Roja│Anna-Marie McLemore│October 9 2018│🏳️‍🌈│
I added this because…I always really enjoy McLemore’s short stories whenever I find them anthologies and this sounds really good!
Stay or Go? Stay!

6.│Odd One Out│Nic Stone│October 9 2018│🏳️‍🌈🔆│
I added this because…This sounds like it may have the possibility of some poly rep which I would love to read!
Stay or Go? Stay!

7.│Beneath the Citadel│Destiny Soria│October 9 2018│🏳️‍🌈➕│
I added this because…Apparently, his has bi boys and plus-sized ace girls so I’m sold.
Stay or Go? Stay!

8.│Sawkill Girls│Claire Legrand│October 16 2018│🏳️‍🌈│
I added this because…I’m at a point in my life where I’ll basically pick up any book with girls in the title, especially when it’s shelved on Goodreads as LBGT.
Stay or Go? Stay!

9.│Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)│Lev AC Rosen│October 30 2018│🏳️‍🌈│

Stay or Go? Stay!

10.│Salt│Hannah Moskowitz│October 30 2018│

11.│Pulp│Robin Talley│November 13 2018│🏳️‍🌈│
I added this because…Queer historical fiction will always get me.
Stay or Go? Stay!

*I included October & November in this post because
1. I wrote this post waaaaaaaaay ahead of time and wasn’t sure when I’d officially come back from hiatus and estimated wrong!
2. If I didn’t then there would only be 1 book in this post and too much in the previous one and that feels like a waste.
3. If I was to try and reorganize it so that Octobers & Novembers books were on the last post and moved the next two books onto the next post it would take a lot of fucking around, math, and hitting my head against the desk, and since I can’t afford to have a concussion it’s like this instead!

12.│Dear Heartbreak: YA Authors and Teens on the Dark Side of Love│Heather Demetrios│December 18 2018│🏳️‍🌈│
I added this because…So this sounds like it’ll look at the abusive side of romantic relationships so I’m interested to see where exactly each author takes us.
Stay or Go? Stay!

Cloud & Lightning Separation

So I’m keeping 10,  getting rid of 2 & moving 1 to my Unreleased Undecided shelf to reassess later on. I wouldn’t call that too bad!

What books are you excited for?
Who are your auto-buy authors?
Do wait for the reviews to come in before dedicating yourself too hyped up books?
Or can you not fight off the temptation?
