my lady jane.jpg1.│My Lady Jane│The Lady Janies #1│Nov 2016│
I added this because…
This sounds like some nice light fluff and sometimes that’s all you really need.
Stay or Go? Stay!

2.│This is Our Story│Ashley Elston│Nov 2016│
I added this because…
I’m really digging the mystery thrillers lately and am thanking my past self for adding them, at least occasionally, to my TBR in the past.
Stay or Go? Go! Unfortunately this one doesn’t like that it’s as good as I would probably go in hoping it would be.

3.│The Arsonist│Stephanie Oakes│Nov 2016│
I added this because…
I was in it for the mystery thriller and that cover.
Stay or Go? Go! I was out of it for basically everything else.

I added this because…
“You’re in a cult, call your dad!”Oh wait. What do you do when your dad is in the cult????
Stay or Go? Stay!

5.│Little Peach│Peggy Kern│Nov 2016│🌹
I added this because…
My mum’s ideal career would be helping kids escape sex slavery/prostitution so I feel like I definitely need to read this so that if it’s good I can recommend it to her, especially since she only ever reads books I tell her to read now.
Stay or Go? Stay!

6.│All the Light We Cannot See│Anthony Doerr│Nov 2016│
I added this because…
Everybody has read and loved it and I probably should too. But am I actually ever going to? No, probably not.
Stay or Go? Go!

7.│You in Five Acts│Una LaMarche│Nov 2016│
I added this because…
Sounded like a call new spin on contemporary.
Stay or Go? Go! Yeah, I’m never gonna get around to it.

8.│Soulmates│Holly Bourne│Nov 2016│
I added this because…
I love Holly Bourne’s books and I will get to this one. Probably.
Stay or Go? Go! Listen, I have loved all of her other books but there’s clearly a reason why I still haven’t picked this one up and it’s probably because it’s the one I’m least likely to enjoy and it focuses on romance more than the others and blah. I’m sorry I gotta be strict with myself.

9.│All American Boys│Jason Reynolds│Nov 2016│🔆│
I added this because…
This sounds interesting and like a good critique on racial profiling.
Stay or Go? Go! Look, I have a lot of books on my TBR and a very shitty memory and yet I can remember just about everyone, they stay on my radar for the most part. This one has not, like at all. When I clicked on the title and couldn’t remember adding, and thought it was about something wildly different. I don’t even know how i came across it because although I have friends who have read and reviewed it, they’re none of the people who usually sway me to pick up a book, so I think I’m just gonna give this one a miss.

10.│What We Saw│Aaron Hartzler│
I added this because…
Its another rape narrative, this time told from the friends POV which I think will be interesting. And it’s based on a real life case.
Stay or Go? Stay!

11.│Dreamland Burning│Jennifer Latham│🔆│
I added this because…
I go through history phases and this was one of them.
Stay or Go? Go!

12.│One│Sarah Crossan│
I added this because…
I have a lot of twins in my family! There’s 3 sets just in my generation and I have aunts who are twins as well. My mum believes she would have had twins if she hadn’t stopped at 2 kids (She was hoping to have twins the first time round so she could do pregnancy just the once). But we don’t have any conjoined twins so I was curious to read about them.
Stay or Go? Go! I’m not really too interested anymore.

13.│Even this Page is White│Vivek Shraya│🏳️‍🌈🔆│
I added this because…
I really love poetry and I love the title of this one!
Stay or Go? Moved to my Poetry shelf.

14.│A Monster Calls│Patrick Ness│
I added this because…
Basically everyone has read this and almost everyone has loved it and I really should get around to it soon!
Stay or Go? Stay!

16.│I Hunt Killers│Jasper Dent #1│Barry Lyga│
I added this because…
Um!!!! This is about the son of an infamous serial killer, who used to bring his son to work with him! That sounds bloody brilliant (I am not ashamed of the word play, not even a little)!!!
Stay or Go? Stay!

17.│Split│Swati Avasthi│🌹
I added this because…
As someone who has lived through different kinds of abuse throughout my life, I tend to pick up abuse narratives because it makes me feel less alone.
Stay or Go? Go! This one is too hard for me to get a hold of.

18.│Sabriel│Abhorsen #1│Garth Nix│
I added this because…
This is a well loved and read book!
Stay or Go? Go! If I am honest with myself, I’m never going to get around to picking this up. Also I just listened to talk Garth Nix did and was so bored I could cry.

21.│The Secret Science of Magic│Melissa Keil│

25.│The Pain Eater│Beth Goobie│🌹
I added this because…
This is another rape narrative that sounds really interesting.
Stay or Go? Stay!

26.│Eliza and Her Monsters│🧠│
I added this because…It’s about fandom, anxiety and being a child of the internet.
Stay or Go? Stay!

27.│Made You Up│Francesca Zappia│🧠│
I added this because…
My mum has helped several people with schizophrenia in the past, and I think it’s something close to her heart because my great uncle had schizophrenia and committed suicide. It’s a deep fear of mine that I’ll start showing the symptoms. It’s an even deeper fear of mine that it will start presenting itself in my brother after a life of heavy drug use because he’s already a very paranoid person and I’m worried about whether it’s something he could live with. So when I saw this book on Goodreads, I was drawn to it. I still am.
Stay or Go? Stay!

28.│Allegedly│Tiffany D. Jackson│🔆🌹
I added this because…

I added this because…
It sounded interesting enough. Bit like ACOTAR?
Stay or Go? Go!

32.│Not a Drop to Drink│Not a Drop to Drink #1│Mindy McGinnis│
I added this because…
This sounded like a new spin on the dystopian genre.
Stay or Go? Go!

33.│Good Me, Bad Me│Ali Land│
I added this because…
This sounds like the mother/daughter equivalent of I Hunt Killers.
Stay or Go? Stay!

So I managed to dump 26, keep 22 and move 3 books!

I seemed to go on a full adding binge in November and December of 2016! Jesus, there were still 33 books that had survived past TBR purges. They weren’t so lucky this time!

Do you have any of these books or your TBR?
Anything I should get to reading ASAP?
