TBR Recommendations

I saw a video back in May from booksandlala on YouTube about a subscription TBR service. You fill out a questionnaire and then within two weeks they send you a curated TBR of 3 books. If you subscribe, it happens every three months. I subscribed and want to share some of my experience with you and also how I plan on following up about it.

The first TBR picks I got were Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova, We Ride Upon Sticks by Quan Barry, and The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones. So far I’ve read only one and have done a post about it here. I enjoyed that book and am hopeful for the other two. My plan is to finish them within the coming weeks.

The next TBR I received about a week or so ago. In it I received three more books: The Price Guide to the Occult by Leslye Walton, Huntress by Melinda Lo, and Five Midnights by Ann Davila Cardinal. I’m excited and nervous about these ones, the ratings are a bit low on Goodreads, but they absolutely do meet the likes and topics I specified in my profile. My plan is to get through these by the end of October. Since they’re all surrounding creepy or magical things, I think they’ll fit in quite well with the October vibe.

I actually feel bad that I didn’t read all of my suggestions for the first one before the second one arrived, but that’s what happens when you get into a reading slump I guess haha. Anyway, I will post the reviews of the books as I read them, but I will also come back and do a round review of each TBR. Hopefully this will give you more insight to how the website works, and whether or not it’s something for you to try out.
