Top 5 Wednesday| Anti-TBR

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that come together to discuss that weeks topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

I'm sure most of us keep an up-to-date list of books we're really looking forward to getting to. Sometimes those books we hear some pretty shitty things about or just lose interest. This week we're sharing those books that we've crossed of our lists and hold no interest in anymore.

1. Carve the Mark
Veronica Roth

This one should really speak for itself. Mostly everyone has heard the controversy around this book. If you haven't just look it up on Goodreads and read some reviews. I was really excited about this book, like really excited - but, DAMN.

2. Passenger
Alexandra Bracken

I hard quite lukewarm things about this duology. I've heard instalove being
tossed around, that its rather boring and I'm not too fond of time travel so I thought I'd pass.

3. Zenith
Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings

This book has been so polarizing. Some love it and some said it was pure trash. I read the first few chapters and just knew it wasn't for me. 
4. The Young Elites
Marie Lu

I did read Marie Lu's other trilogy - Legend - and found it a bit underwhelming. I found the writing to be quite average and just wasn't wow'd by any part of the story. 

5. Tower of Dawn
Sarah J. Maas

This one is still sitting on the fence. I won a Waterstones exclusive edition from the wonderful Jenn @ Jenniely Its got to the point where I've been reading these books since I was fourteen, so I may as well read this one and KoA and see how it ends. I've put so much into these books! But are they really worth the approx 1400 between them?

  1. I remove Zenith, Carve the Mark, Passenger, and The 5th Wave too. It just doesn't grab my attention and they are all have mixed reviews.
