Books I want to give a second chance.

Hello and happy Friday!

So, one of my reading related goals for this year is to unhaul some books. I’ve been collecting books for over three years now and so … there’s a fair few.

I’ve made a slow start on the unhauling process. I’ve picked the ones I know are defnitly getting the boot and I’ve also given away 2 to a friend to read with 2 more on standby for when he finishes. So I’m not doing bad.

But there are four books which I’m going to need to re-read before I decide their fate.

  • Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson – Ever since reading this I’ve felt bad about not liking it as much as everyone else seems too. This one isn’t so much to see if I should unhaul it but more to see if I should bother buying the second book. I don’t want to force myself into continuing on with a series but the hype makes me want to try again.
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – I read this a few years ago and … wasn’t a fan. I think it was the very beautiful and descriptive writing style that threw me off though. I was new to reading so I think it was past my skill level. I’m hoping now that I’ll be able to love this book and the rest of the series which I own but have not read!
  • Silence of Six by E.C Myers- This book is about hacking and I love watching things about that. My problem when originally reading this was that I don’t think I paid enough attention and ended up lost and confused. I’m hoping the second time around I’ll be able to understand and follow along better.
  • This is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp- I’ll probably still give this away after but I do want to reread before saying adios and I don’t know why.

  1. I definitely recommend giving Daughter of Smoke and Bone another chance! I had some issues with the first book as well, but it gets a lot better!
