Books I need some persuasion on

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is Books On My Fall 2019 TBR. I could only list seven as there are really not that many books I'm looking forward to. Some of these I'm not certain of yet but if you've read these, let me know if I should read them or not.

Hunting of the Last Dragon by Sherryl Jordan
01/ Hunting of the Last Dragon by Sherryl Jordan > link
I really like the premise and it sounds like a book I would enjoy. I'm definitely going to read this. Maybe. Someday.


Gap Year in Ghost Town by Michael Pryor

Sounds like it would be a fun read and I do like to read books that makes me laugh but I read reviews where they said the protagonist/narrator is annoying but I don't know. And it's a series which means I would be spending a lot of time with this protagonist so I really want to like him and not be rolling my eyes while reading which would not be a good way to read a book. (Author's website is a bit wacky at the moment but the link above takes you there.)


The Way Past Winter- Kiran Millwood Hargrave

I'm not even sure what this is about but I like Hargrave's books but I'm sensing a disappointment coming for this one but I'll probably read it anyway.


One Damn Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor

One reviewer convinced me it would be fun to start on this series but now I'm thinking maybe not but I'll keep this on my 'check it out later if I'm bored' list, plus this series is long which kind of make me not want to start on this.


The house with chicken legs by Sophie Anderson

Even though I feel like I have read this story before, I still kind of want to read it because of the fairytale-like elements.


The looking glass by Janet McNally

I can't remember the particular reason I have this on my 'check it out' list but it seems to hame magical elements that I like but it seems like more a contemporary and one reviewers said it's a road trip book which puts me off but the magical elements sort of keeps my interest but I don't know.


A curse so dark and lonely by Brigid Kemmere

A Beauty & the Beast retelling: I'm in. Don't know about the sequel. I've never found any sequel to these singularity-like books worth reading but I'll see.

  2. I haven't read any of them, and some look like they WOULD float my boat. Thank you.

  3. One Damn Thing After Another looks interesting to me, I like stories where people travel around in history. I haven't read any of these books, nor even heard of them, so I say just jump right in and read, you never know what will surprise you.

    1. Sometimes I do just jump right in and sometimes I'm just unable to decide.

      Thanks for visiting & have a lovely day.

  5. Oh, I'm curious about how you will like "One Damned Thing after another". I have to admit I liked the idea but I DNFd and recently decided to donate it. Maybe you might like it better. :)

    1. I think every book has its audience, just sometimes the book finds the wrong audience. If I ever read this, I'll probably post a review here.

      Thanks for visiting & have a lovely day.
