I was motivated by this past Top Ten Tuesday’s topic of, “Books I’ve Added To My TBR & I’ve Forgotten Why” and decided to clean up my Amazon Wish List today! Here is a list of books that I have cut from my TBR…
The Last Stage by Louise Voss
At the peak of her career as lead singer of a legendary 1980s indie band, Meredith Vincent was driven off the international stage by a horrific incident. Now living a quiet existence in a cottage on the grounds of an old stately home, she has put her past behind her and come to terms with her new life.
When a body is found in the manicured gardens of her home, and a series of inexplicable and unsettling events begins to occur, it becomes clear that someone is watching, someone who knows who she is … Someone who wants vengeance.
And this is only the beginning…
Why? It just doesn’t sound appealing to me…a former rockstar living out their life and then has someone seeking revenge? I’m sure it’s a decent book, but I have sooooo many more on my shelf to read before this one!
Changeling (Six Stories, #3) by Matt Wesolowski
On Christmas Eve in 1988, seven-year-old Alfie Marsden vanished in the Wentshire Forest Pass, when a burst tyre forced his father, Sorrel, to stop the car. Leaving the car to summon the emergency services, Sorrel returned to find his son gone. No trace of the child, nor his remains, have ever been found. Alfie Marsden was declared officially dead in 1995.
Elusive online journalist, Scott King, whose ‘Six Stories’ podcasts have become an internet sensation, investigates the disappearance, interviewing six witnesses, including Sorrel, his son and his ex-partner, to try to find out what really happened that fateful night. He takes a journey through the trees of the Wentshire Forest – a place synonymous with strange sightings, and tales of hidden folk who dwell there. He talks to a company that tried and failed to build a development in the forest, and a psychic who claims to know where Alfie is…
Intensely dark, deeply chilling and searingly thought provoking, Changeling is an up-to-the-minute, startling thriller, taking you to places you will never, ever forget.
Why? Hear me out, this one sounds absolutely amazing, but I just don’t feel like starting a series right now. I have a closet full of Baldacci books from my Dad I haven’t touched in a year and have other book series in my possession I need to get through first!
Anything For Her by Jack Jordan
Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.
Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.
Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began?
If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.
Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.
From the global number one bestselling author Jack Jordan, comes this terrifying novel about the secrets we keep, and how the past can only be buried for so long.
Why? Honestly…the cover. Laugh, go ahead…but if I look at all the other books I have on my very, very, VERY long wish list, this would ultimately go to the bottom of the pile. Put it this way, if I were to get this book today, I probably would never read it…there would always be a book ahead of it!
That’s it for now. Maybe next week I’ll take a stab at my Goodreads Want To Read list…I could certainly use a good purge there!!! Have you been cleaning out your TBR lists or do you just let them pile all the way up??
