You know you’re a bookworm when your TBR just keeps on growing. There are always those books that you added because you thought you’d like them, but by the time you get around to possibly reading it, you decide that it’s no longer one you want to read.
There’s no shame in that. I love to read a lot of secular YA and it’s getting harder and harder to recommend a lot of them anymore. Most of them have content or heavy topics that aren’t quite appropriate for the age group is geared for or the descriptions are completely misleading.
Here are some of the most recent ones that I’ve taken off my list of books to read.
- Wild Beauty by Ann-Marie McLemore
- Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills
- Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp
These three are all books that I added simply because of the covers. I thought they were pretty. The first two books descriptions sounded like they’d be girl-boy romances, but they aren’t. They’re romances between two girls. The third book, I added because it sounded like a book on friendship. Unfortunately, it’s an “I’m a female in love with another female” kind of read. As a believer, these aren’t books I can endorse or have an interest in reading. Honestly, I think the descriptions should be clearer so readers who aren’t interested in these reads won’t pick them up.
Today’s list is super short because it’s rare when I take a book off my TBR. These were the main ones I’ve taken off recently.
Do you have any books that you added to your TBR, but decided you were no longer interested in reading? What were your reasons? Let me know in the comments below.
