Update Post # 2: Summer TBR Wipeout 2017


It’s time to post my update for the first leg of the Summer TBR Wipeout challenge.  So, how am I doing?  Not as great as I had hoped because I had to get some ARCs read that I hadn’t put on my list.  This time around I have managed to knock a couple off my TBR that had been on there for way too long though so I am happy about that.  Out of the twelve books I had originally put on my challenge list, I’ve managed to read 5 so far.





Of these two, Heartless was definitely my favorite.  It was just so whimsical and fun, and I think if I lived in the sexist environment that Cath did, I’d probably turn into a raging ‘Off with his head!’ kind of girl myself, haha.  Caraval, which was one of my most anticipated reads of this year, didn’t quite live up to the hype for me, although I still thought it was an entertaining read.  It just seemed to drag out the ending. I’m curious to see how that one will be turned into a series because I felt like the story was pretty well wrapped up by the time I finally reached the end.




I don’t know if I’ll make it through all 7 by the end of the challenge or not, but we’ll see how it goes!  Hope everyone else is doing great with their challenge!

    I’d like to read Cavaval at one point to it’s sad to hear that it didn’t live up to the hype. Heartless is also on my TBR, but who knows when I’ll get to it! XD
    A Monster Calls and This Savage Song are great so I hope you enjoy! I recently read The Sun is Also A Star and it was good so I’ve thought about reading Everything Everything. Lots of people tend to like it so I hope you enjoy!

      Caraval was definitely still a good read. I just went into it fully expecting a 5 star read so I think my expectations were just too high based on all of the hype.

    Considering you have all those ARCs to get to, I think you’re doing really well on this challenge! Looks like you have some good ones left, too! I would definitely put Cress at the top of the list!

      Thanks! I’m definitely taking your advice on Cress. If it’s as good as Cinder and Scarlet, I know I’ll not only read it quickly, but I’ll love it too. 🙂

    Cress was my favorite book in that series. I hope you like it! I had never heard of Fractured before but the cover intrigued me enough and I went over to goodreads to check it out. It sounds really interesting! Now I just added another book to my TBR pile. haha Happy Reading!

    I just picked up Everything, Everything on my Library visit. Considering I went in to only drop off a book and easily left with 5 books I think my TBR list has gone up in smoke.
