Down the TBR Hole, #2

DowntheTBRHole

I’ve seen this floating around the internet, so I wanted to give it a try. It was created by Lost in the Story, and it looks like a lot of fun. I’ll be using my personal GoodReads account for this, so we’ll see how this goes.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (added Jul 7, 2012)

I’ve been wanting to read this forever, and I really want to by a copy of it. But there’s this part of me that is putting it off simply because I know it will be unsettling.

Eragon by Christopher Paolini (added Sep 22, 2013)

Yeah, I tried to the synopsis and I zoned out. Besides, it’s aimed at children and I’m not a child anymore.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Gree (added Sep 22, 2013)

When I was a kid, we had A Walk to Remember, and I guess this generation has The Fault in Our Stars. After reading the synopsis, I decided it really isn’t something I’d enjoy. I’m not crazy about realistic romance (at least in YA).

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (added Sep 22, 2013)

Ugh, it was a pain in the butt just to find a synopsis for this thing. Annoyance aside, I’m not entirely sure if I would enjoy this. What I read didn’t really give me much to go off,  and I’m not a huge fan of that. I feel like I’d either really like this, or I’d be bored out of my mind. There might not be an in-between.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy (added Sep 22, 2013)

I actually just bought this, so my answer’s going to be obvious. But I’ll still talk it out. This is a post apocalyptic novel about a father and son walking through a burned America. It sounds pretty dark and depressing, so I’d probably like it.
