TO READ OR NOT TO READ #2

Hey guys, I’m back with another To Read or Not To Read post. I really enjoyed writing my last one so I thought I would continue it as a series, much in the way Down The TBR Hole has been, though less frequently I’m sure.

Today I will be talking about a more diverse range of books than I did last month: with some YA as well as some Adult and Fem Fiction!

TERMS:

ON HOLD I’m still keeping it on my tbr, but I think I’ll wait to read it for a while.

NEXT UP This is going on the top of my next reads pile.

TO READ IMMEDIATELYThis will be one of the next three books I pick up.

UNDETERMINED – I’m still not sure if I’ll read this one and appreciate your guys’ opinions.

The Rook (The Checquy Files, #1)

THE ROOK – DANIEL O’MALLEY

GOODREADS LINK

“The body you are wearing used to be mine.” So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her.

VERDICT: NEXT UP

Unearthed (Unearthed, #1)

UNEARTHED – AMIE KAUFMAN & MEAGAN SPOONER

GOODREADS LINK

When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.

For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study… as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don’t loot everything first. Mia and Jules’ different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.

VERDICT: NEXT UP

This Is Where I Leave You

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU – JONATHON TROPPER

GOODREADS LINK

A riotously funny, emotionally raw novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind—whether we like it or not.

The death of Judd Foxman’s father marks the first time that the entire Foxman family—including Judd’s mother, brothers, and sister—have been together in years. Conspicuously absent: Judd’s wife, Jen, whose fourteen-month affair with Judd’s radio-shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public.

Simultaneously mourning the death of his father and the demise of his marriage, Judd joins the rest of the Foxmans as they reluctantly submit to their patriarch’s dying request: to spend the seven days following the funeral together. In the same house. Like a family.

VERDICT: ON HOLD

Meddling Kids

MEDDLING KIDS – EDGAR CANTERO

GOODREADS LINK

1990. The teen detectives once known as the Blyton Summer Detective Club (of Blyton Hills, a small mining town in the Zoinx River Valley in Oregon) are all grown up and haven’t seen each other since their fateful, final case in 1977. Andy, the tomboy, is twenty-five and on the run, wanted in at least two states. Kerri, one-time kid genius and budding biologist, is bartending in New York, working on a serious drinking problem. At least she’s got Tim, an excitable Weimaraner descended from the original canine member of the team. Nate, the horror nerd, has spent the last thirteen years in and out of mental health institutions, and currently resides in an asylum in Arhkam, Massachusetts. The only friend he still sees is Peter, the handsome jock turned movie star. The problem is, Peter’s been dead for years.

The time has come to uncover the source of their nightmares and return to where it all began in 1977. This time, it better not be a man in a mask. The real monsters are waiting.

VERDICT: ON HOLD

The Power

THE POWER – NAOMI ALDERMAN

GOODREADS LINK

In THE POWER, the world is a recognizable place: there’s a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power–they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets.

VERDICT: ON HOLD

    1. I’m really hoping to get to them soon this year, but I’m not sure if it’s going to happen this month or next because I’ve recently been taken over by the need to read all the Stephen King books.
