Booktag: Unhaul #5

It's been 6 months since I did an unhaul. Since I keep adding books to my TBR, but never remove any, I decided to do another unhaul.
My TBR is so big, that it sometimes scares me. I decided to visit my own Goodreads shelves and to TRY and unhaul 10 books.

Please feel free to participate and unhaul some of your books. I'd love to know what books you decided to unhaul!


Welcome To Temptation by Jennifer Crusie
If I have to trust on reviews and friend-reviews for this book, I don't really know. Only 3 friends have rated it, but not reviewed it. There are some pretty low reviews but also high reviews... I decided to read the synopsis and it makes me so curious! I can't let this book go.
Keep or Go?
Keep!

Rip Tide by Kat Falls
I don't even know why this book is still on my list. I have to be more critical when scrolling through! I've tried to read the first book in this series more than 4 times. When I finally read it, I actually skipped through and I NEVER do that. It was just hard to imagine everything that was happening. I will not read this book, the 2nd one  in the series.
Keep or Go?
Go!

Inhuman by Kat Falls
Please don't think I'm starting something against Kat Falls, lol. It's just coincidence I picked this book. I actually saw now that it's the same author as the previous book. This synopsis and the reviews don't convince me to keep this book. Since I have enough to read already, I'm skipping this one.
Keep or Go?
Go!

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Okay, so I wasn't all that convinced by the synopsis. But... Look at that COVER. It's so beautiful. And I'm a sucker for a nice cover. Then I went on to reviews from my friends and I just kept scrolling through 4 and 5 stars, with maybe one or two negative reviews. I'm trusting my friends!
Keep or Go?
Keep!

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Vampire books are something that I have come to love. I wasn't a big fan of Twilight, but I did like various other books that were about vampires. Again; after the synopsis I wasn't convinced yet. Started scrolling through my friends' reviews... SO POSITIVE! Only 4 and 5?! Gotta read this.
Keep or Go?
Keep!

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
It's really hard to be excited about a book if even the synopsis is cluttered. I had to read it twice and it didn't make me curious at all... I also checked the reviews, because the book itself gets good ratings. Only one 5-rating from my friends and loads of 3/2 stars. I'm just not sure about this, and doubt means go...
Keep or Go?
Go!


Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
This book gave me loads of insta-love vibes and also some Twilight vibes and that was not a good match for me. I'm not convinced and today, doubt = go.
Keep or Go?
Go!

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
The synopsis for this book made me really curious! Then I saw my friends ratings, and they were pretty good, I also read 2 positive reviews from my friends, but then I got to the community reviews and the shit-show started. Loads of 2/1 ratings... I'm still in doubt, but I'd love to see for myself since the synopsis sounds so good!
Keep or Go?
Keep!

Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
This book has been on my TBR for AGES. I keep scrolling past it, never picking it up, so I decided to throw it into my unhaul. And, oh boy... Loads of good reviews, but what I want from this book is a badass re-written Alice in Wonderland with zombies! Everywhere I scroll I see the words "teen drama" "high-school drama" "insta-love" "love triangle"... Huge nope for me.
Keep or Go?
Go!

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Another one of those books that is on my TBR for ages. I've heard so many good things about this book. The synopsis makes me really curious. Maybe reminds me a bit of the movie A Quiet Place? Which was really good. A huge amount of my friends is raving about this book, so I can't let it go.
Keep or Go?
Keep!

I was able to let go 5 out of 10 books.
That leaves 780 books on my TBR.
Please let me know what you think of this unhaul.
Did I make some mistakes or do you agree?
