Since I added 174 books to my Goodreads from July 13th through 19th, I felt like sharing some of them. This post will focus on those I added to my "maybe" shelf--the ones that sound interesting, but plan to look into further before transferring them to "to-read." I added 46 maybes on Saturday night, but I'm only sharing some of them.
(Format: [Book title linked to GR] - [Reasons why I added book]
Why maybe? [reasons why])
The Rules of Survival - Saw author name and added it without looking to see what it's about
Why maybe? I want to look further into it.
Losing Faith - Cover, had been on my to-read list once
Why maybe? It seems to have a heavy religious (Christianity*) influence to it.
Freaks Like Us - Title, mental illness
Why maybe? The combination of short length (it's 240 pages) and a 3.78 average rating makes me want to look further into it before adding it to my to-read list.
This Side of Salvation - Author, 2014 release
Why maybe? It seems to have an even heavier religious influence to it than Losing Faith does.
Red Tears - Cool cover, mental illness
Why maybe? It's only 240 pages long and the description doesn't say much about it.
*Christianity - Modern, contemporary books with Christian influences are ones I avoid the most. I just . . . don't connect to them. If it's a historical or paranormal (with angels/demons), I'm actually drawn to it.
The Winter Sea - Cover, Scottish setting, high average rating, has romance
Why maybe? I don't read much adult books, so I want to read reviews before I add it as to-read.
One Kick - Cover, 21 year old MC, it's a thriller!
Why maybe? I'm not sure. I just want to look further into it.
The Spirit Keeper - Cover, first line of description, has romance, has Native Americans in it
Why maybe? Again, I don't read many adult books. Also, while the idea of romance draws me into it, I also rarely ever read adult books with a lot of romance in it.
The Pearl That Broke Its Shell - Reminds me of Khaled Hosseini's books, cultural, title
Why maybe? While The Kite Runner was amazing, I don't pick up books like it very often. I have to be in a certain mood to read them.
The Bone Clocks - Title, looks really intriguing, very high average rating
Why maybe? I don't know . . .
Endangered - Looks interesting and really different
Why maybe? I'm not sure if it's really my type of read.
Switch - Author (who I swear I've heard of before), cover
Why maybe? I usually put a lot of research into NA titles before deciding to add them to Goodreads.
Like Gravity - Looks really intriguing
Why maybe? Again, I usually put a lot of research into NA titles before deciding to add them to Goodreads.
The Dust of 100 Dogs - Author, pirates, sounds awesome, used to be on my GR
Why maybe? I've heard more bad than good about this one.
A Trick of The Light - Cover and title
Why maybe? It's a combination of its length (189 pages) and the fact that I didn't even look at the description.
Have you read any of these? Which ones sound the most interesting? Do you have any book recommendations?
