Should I Stay or Should I Go? 16th March 2019 #Goodreadsclearout

Posted March 16, 2019 by Zoé in Blog, Reviews and Stuff, Should I Stay or Should I Go / 10 Comments

Thank you to everyone who commented last week, you were super! And the fab thing is, is that I did listen to you!

So the results are in from last week! The 3 books I am keeping are as followed…..

Which means I have kicked these 3 to the curb….sorry!!

Wow, that was hard to say bye to these books! I mean I love the Tom Clancy films! Bit gutted about the Harlan Coben one but the majority won out and I listened! This is all the fun! I mean in 1 week you have cleared 42 books off my shelf!! Some good going there!

So what offerings do we have this week???

Until it’s Over by Nicci French


Astrid Bell has known most of her housemates for years, but while they have a tangled history together—romantic pairings, one-night stands, friendships—each of them also has a past.

Astrid is on her way home one day when her neighbor accidentally knocks her off her bike. Bruised but not broken, her roommates help her home. The next day, they learn that same neighbor was beaten to death only hours after the accident. Each of them tells the police what little they know and are dismissed—until Astrid stumbles over another body. Two brutal murders in less than a week is more than just bad luck.

As the difference between friend and stranger grows harder to judge, and as the line between attraction and danger thins, the housemates—unsure if there’s a killer in their midst—guard against becoming his next victim in this steamy and suspenseful thriller from internationally bestselling author Nicci French.

I definitely have gone on a clicking stage with this duo! So another offering from this duo, what do we think?

So over to you…what is your verdict?

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass Book 1)


After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined

This has been on my list for years and there has been so much hype about this book series! Is it worth the hype? You tell me!

So over to you…what is your verdict?

I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore (Lorien Legacies Book 1)


Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books–but we are real.

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.

I remember the film of this being ok and wondering if they would ever complete the series in the movie world, but it has seemed to die its death. Now I am not sure if I am over this book series already before I have started.

So over to you…what is your verdict?

Heartless by Marissa Meyer


Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

Who does not love a good fairytale retelling! I have adored the whole of the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer that I may have to overrule any verdit which is to get rid of this book as I want to read it….is that allowed?! lol

So over to you…what is your verdict?

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (Red Queen Book 1)


This is a world divided by blood – red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power. Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

This is another book series that piqued my interest with all the hype about it! This book won the Goodreads Choice 2015, so it has to be good right?!

So over to you…what is your verdict?

Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare. (Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy book 1)


After living as a Mundane and a Vampire, Simon never thought he would become a Shadowhunter, but today he begins his training at Shadowhunter Academy

I have adored the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices and this series focuses on Simon who was my favourite character in the series so it should be a no brainer really shouldn’t it!?

So over to you…what is your verdict?

What is the verdict then from this weeks options? It is a tough call on some of the books I think! Results will be unveiled next week, and in some weeks there maybe me more than 3 books that go, could be a complete wipe out!

Until next time xxx
