Kayla:

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

 

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

This one I actually already own as an audiobook and will probably be a March TBR book for me.  It has wonderful reviews and curious to see what I gain from it. KEEP!

 

Sometimes You Win--Sometimes You Learn: Life's Greatest Lessons Are Gained from Our Losses

Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Learn by John C. Maxwell

I’ve read a few of his books before and I’ve seen him speak live, I’ve really enjoyed both and take a lot out of his books.  I feel like the title of this book is something we all need to be reminded of sometimes.  This is another keeper for me.

 

Good Leaders Ask Great Questions: Your Foundation for Successful Leadership

Good Leaders Ask Great Questions by John C. Maxwell

Another John Maxwell book and another I own, it’s actually sitting in a stack of books I leave at the office to read when I have downtime (which lately is never).  I love how this book is organized, it’s very off the norm and looks like something you’d read in small chunks.  Keep.

 

Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet

Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet by Time Gunn, Ada Calhoun

Ugh.  Terrible/wonderful week for me.  I can’t remove this book either. It sounds great and it’s Tim Gunn! No idea when I’ll get to this but I’m curious to see what’s inside.  Keep.

Oh No She Didn't: The Top 100 Style Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them

Oh No She Didn’t: The Top 100 Style Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them By Clinton Kelly

Did anyone else watch What Not To Wear?  I miss that show so much. The new shows that exist just aren’t the same but are okay on occasion. I am curious to see how relevant this book still is, if the tips in here are more classic or more regarding trends.  Plus Clinton just cracks me up. Keep.

 

Total Kept 5; Total Dropped 0.  I’m totally okay with this.  It’s all nonfiction and I rarely pick a book that I don’t eventually read.

 

Neko:

The Left Hand of God (The Left Hand of God, #1)

 

Assassin’s Creed Renaissance (Assassin’s Creed #1) by Oliver Bowden

Loved the Ezio triology games, loved the movie. Kinda feel like I have to give book format a go just to cover all my basses. Keep

 

 

StarCrossed (Thief Errant, #1)

 

StarCrossed (Thief Errant #1) by Elizabeth C. Bunce

Torn on this one… It sounds interesting but also like a lot of other things. I have so much I am dying to read so… Toss

 

 

Shibumi

Shibumi (Nicholai Hel #1) by Trevanian

This actually sounds so horribly trite that I have to read it! The perfect lover, the perfect assassin, the genius, the millionaire… Bruce Wayne meets paired with Casanova, oh dis gon be gud! Keep

 

 

Dark Hunters (omnibus edition)

 

Dark Hunters I-III by Angelo Tsanatelis

Okay this sounds awesome! I love historical and adore dark anything! Throw in a bit of romance (hopefully not too much) and vampires and we have ourselves a date! Keeep

 

 

Keep: 4 Toss: 1 (Ooh look at that I tossed one! I am so unpredictable!)

what do you guys think? What books did you drop and which did you keep?
