Ten Books I’m on the Fence About

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is… Upcoming Releases I’m On the Fence About (these are the books you need help deciding if they’re worth adding to your TBR or not.)

So whatever reason, I’m on the fence about the below books. I either didn’t like the previous books in the series, or the blurb hasn’t completely sold me yet.

#1- Chain of Gold (The Last Hours #1) by Cassandra Clare
#2- Again, but Better by Christine Riccio

#3- The Fever King (Feverwake #1) by Victoria Lee
#4- The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees

#5- The Everlasting Rose (The Belles #2) by Dhonielle Clayton
#6- Wayward Son (Simon Snow #2) by Rainbow Rowell

#7- Deal with the Devil (The Forge Trilogy #1) by Meghan March
#8- When August Ends by Penelope Ward

#9- The Risk (Briar U #2) by Elle Kennedy
#10- 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

Have you read any of the books on this list? Should I give them a chance?

Also, I attended a Leigh Bardugo signing for King of Scars last week, I wrote all about it here, and there are pictures!

  1. I hope that if you add any of these, they turn out to be good ones for you. I have an e-ARC of 99 percent but it was long before I’ve seen all the mixed reviews and now I’m nervous! I did love The Hating Game though.


    1. I hope you like 99 Percent Mine! I still haven’t read The Hating Game, all that hype worries me lol. I’ve mostly seen good things about 99 Percent though, so I hope you love it 😀

  2. Yeah I’m still on the fence about The Belles. I know everyone was talking about it last year, but I wasn’t drawn in by any of the descriptions so….meh. Though the cover for the second one looks crazy, maybe I’ll look into it again.
    Meanwhile I’m SO EXCITED for Chain Of Gold, can’t contain it! 😂


    1. I read The Belles and I thought it was just okay. That’s why I’m hesitant on book 2, I’m not sure if it’s worth my time. Though if you ever pick it up, I hope you like it! 🙂


  3. I’ve seen 99 Percent Mine around a lot lately, I’m still not sure as to whether or not I should read the authors other book, The Hating Game? I’ve heard good things about it, but I’m not sure if it’s the kind of book I would enjoy?
    The Fever King has such a beautiful cover!!! :O
    I hope you enjoy them if you pick some of them up!
    Happy Reading! ❤


    1. Thank you! While I love romance books, I’m hesitant to pick up The Hating Game just because there’s so much hype surrounding it. I’m scared I’ll hate it 😂

  4. I’m excited for Chain of Gold! Then again, I loved the other books in the main Shadowhunter line so I’m excited to read about Will and Tess’s kids. I got a copy of The Fever King free from Amazon Prime’s first reads program (or whatever they call it), but I haven’t read it yet.


    1. Haha, the reason I’m not sure about Chain of Gold is bc I still haven’t read the Dark Artifices series also Infernal Devices is my all time fave (I don’t think anything can beat it), but for some reason reading about their kids doesn’t excite me much? 😂


    1. I adore the cover! The blurb hasn’t gotten me yet though. (But I’ll still probably read it 😂😂)


  5. I have arc’s of both Waking Forest and Again, but Better. I’m def the most nervous about reading Christine’s because I’m so picky about contemporary and I’m not sure if this is going to be anything that I’ll care for.


    1. Haha, I’m the complete opposite! I’m super picky on my fantasy, while contemporary not so much. 🙂 I hope you enjoy both though! I’m pretty sure I’m going to pick up Again, But Better eventually 😀


  6. I have Christine’s on my list this week too. I think it’s just because I don’t feel like any synopsis has really TOLD me much about the novel. Still, it’s exciting to know a book worm (booktuber) is publishing a novel she’s worked hard on. Hope we both enjoy this one – and you enjoy the rest on your list! 🙂


    1. Same! I love contemporary so I’ll probably try it. But just from the synopsis I’m not quite sold. Love the cover and title though! 🙂
