Decluttering My Goodreads TBR #7

Part 7 of my process of trying to delete some books off of my Goodreads TBR continues!

Click on the covers to read the synopsis each of book.


The Vacationers by Emma Straub

This seems like it’ll be a great summer read and I already own it! I know its about rich people and their first world, upper-class problems (which honestly isn’t a favorite subject of mine). The cover is simply stylish though.

VERDICT: KEEP

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

eleanor & park cover

I DNF’d this one years ago when I first bought it and read some of it. I haven’t touched it in a long while and I honestly don’t plan on picking it back up again. This book has gotten criticism over its harmful depiction of racial stereotypes and racism towards one of its MCs, Park who is half-Korean and half-Irish-American.

VERDICT: DELETE

Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher

This book seems interesting but I have so many other books I’d rather read before I ever get to this one. So I’m deleting it for now.

VERDICT: DELETE

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
the perks of being a wallflower

Sad fact: I’ve already seen the movie. I liked the movie a lot and I’m not really sure whether it would benefit me to read this book. I know there’s a chance that there were differences but I mean….the movie has Ezra Miller in it, so that’s a plus towards the movie. Maybe if I find this out a thrift store or Goodwill for a cheap price, I may read it but for now it’s a delete.

VERDICT: DELETE

Rules by Cynthia Lord

I vaguely remember reading this in middle school and I liked that it was about a girl whose brother has autism. But I also never finished and since then I have never seen it anywhere. Knowing that this a middle grade read, I’ll probably never read it again, but maybe one day I’ll just find it and decide if I want to add it to be my TBR again.

VERDICT: DELETE

Flipped by Wendelin van Draanen

So this book I’ve read once before, but I guess I placed it back on because I wanted to re-read it at that time. But now, I barely remember the plot and characters and quite frankly I don’t care lol.

VERDICT: DELETE

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
just listen sarah dessen

Ahh Sarah Dessen, one of the earliest YA contemporary romance authors I remember getting into. I barely read this one and then put it down and eventually sold my copy of it. Over time I’ve realized YA romance is something I have a love it or hate it relationship with.

VERDICT: DELETE

Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

I’ve always remembered enjoying Speak, also by Laurie Halse Anderson, which was about rape. However I don’t remember how well it was handled. So this book, which is about eating disorders, is one that I’m very hesistant to read about considering it’s not going to be an #OWNVoices read.

VERDICT: DELETE

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
all the bright places

All the Bright Places has its critics and its fans. There are people who love the romance and characters, but also those who hate the way that mental illness is represented in this and also the fact that it apparently uses the “love cures all” cliche. I’m just not in ~in the mood~ for reading a poorly handled mental illness book :/

VERDICT: DELETE

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
ill give you the sun

I still have zero idea what this about after the reading the synopsis because it’s pretty vague but this has a lot of great reviews and it’s pretty hyped.

VERDICT: KEEP
