Fantasy, Top 5 Wednesday, Young Adult

Books I Own I Might (Most Likely) Remove From my TBR | T5W

Hello bookworms! I’m Nia and today I’m going to be talking about some books that I most likely will never read.

Now I’m not going to explain the reason why I’m not going to read most of these books. The thing is, that either I lost interest in the series, or I didn’t like the first book in the series or I completely forgot about everything that I read before, so I don’t feel like re-reading the other installments to pick these ones up.

I’m still on the fence about a couple of these, and I’m still debating whether or not I should continue with the books that are left, but I just wanted to mention in this post just in case.

If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Wednesday, it is a Goodeads group now currently run by Sam over at ToughtsOfTomes on Youtube, where each week they give you a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category. You can join the group here if you want to participate!

Without any further ado, let’s start with this week’s topic!


The Scorch Trials | James Dashner


Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end.

Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn’t done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch.

There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.

The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.

Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.

There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.


Daughter of Dusk | Livia Blackburne


After learning the truth about her bloodlines, Kyra can’t help but feel like a monster.

Though she’s formed a tentative alliance with the Palace, Kyra must keep her identity a secret or risk being hunted like the rest of her Demon Rider kin. Tristam and the imprisoned assassin James are among the few who know about her heritage, but when Tristam reveals a heartbreaking secret of his own, Kyra’s not sure she can trust him. And with James’s fate in the hands of the palace, Kyra fears that he will give her away to save himself.

As tensions rise within Forge’s Council, and vicious Demon Rider attacks continue in surrounding villages, Kyra knows she must do something to save her city. But she walks a dangerous line between opposing armies: will she be able to use her link to the Demon Riders for good, or will her Makvani blood prove to be deadly?


Eve & Adam | Michael Grant & Katherine Applegate


And girl created boy…

In the beginning, there was an apple—

And then there was a car crash, a horrible injury, and a hospital. But before Evening Spiker’s head clears a strange boy named Solo is rushing her to her mother’s research facility. There, under the best care available, Eve is left alone to heal.

Just when Eve thinks she will die—not from her injuries, but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy.

Using an amazingly detailed simulation, Eve starts building a boy from the ground up. Eve is creating Adam. And he will be just perfect… won’t he?


Tower of Dawn | Sarah J. Maas


Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.


Siren’s Song | Mary Webber


With the loss of Tulla still fresh in mind, Rasha’s fate unknown, and Lord Myles taken over by the dark ability, Nym and the few Bron soldiers rush to warn Cashlin’s queen. Only to discover it may already be too late for the monarch and her eerie kingdom. As the Luminescents are sifting through Nym’s past memories and the queen is reading into her future, Nym is given a choice of how to defeat Draewulf, but the cost may be more than she can bear. And even then there are no guarantees.

With that reality burrowing into her bones—along with the guilt of the lives she will sacrifice—Nym returns to her homeland of Faelen to raise an army of peasants through promises of freedom. But when the few friends she has left, along with the world and citizens she loves, are staring down the face of a monster and his undead army, will Nym summon every element her blood is capable of controlling . . . or surrender to a different strength—one of sacrifice?

Because in the end, death may be more merciful for them all.

  1. I like how you say ‘most likely’!!! It’s so hard to part with them isn’t it!

    Have you read the others in the Throne of Glass series? I’m just about to start Heir of Fire and am hoping my interest doesn’t wane…..

    1. I know! I feel so bad, because I don’t like DNFing books and series, but I think that’s what’s going to happen here (though I could totally change my mind😅).

      I’ve read until Empire of Storms and have a copy of Tower of Dawn wanting to be read but I don’t like where the series is going or the fact that each single character has to have a love interest 😪.

  2. I’ve given up on all of Sarah J. Maas’ books. TOG series just bothers me now. I also never made it past the first Maze Runner book.

    1. Thank you! I hardly unhaul a book, because even though if I didn’t like them I feel bad giving them away, but I admit it’s such a great way to get rid of books you disliked and finding more room for others you’re excited for!

    1. Same! I had the two other books as well because back then it was such a popular series, but seeing that I’m not interested at all in reading the rest of them and that the author is a sexual pedrator I decided to finally move on and not support him anymore.


    1. I’ve seen a lot of people do the same as you! To be honest, I’m kind of sad because I really enjoyed the first couple of books when I first read them back in the day, but I don’t like where the series is going so I think I’ll be removing them.

      1. If someone described the series to me, I would be right on board but the execution isn’t hitting home for me. I was taking three months to get through Crown of Midnight and I still didn’t manage to finish it.
        It’s always sad when a series disappoints you that you’ve been enjoying before that.

    1. Hahah no problem! The reason is mainly because I haven’t enjoyed the previous books in the series or where the path was going (expect with TMR, that I didn’t really cared about the books that much but after reading all that happened with James Dashner I decided not to support him anymore).
