Scrolling down my feed, I noticed a post by The Book Prophet about reviewing and tackling TBR piles. Since, I my list on Goodreads is over 900 books, I thought joining this would be for the best ^_^
This post was created by Lia from Lost in a Story since many of us add more books in a week than we actually read and sometimes completely forget what the heck is on the list (so guilty). Since I started my Goodreads list back in 2012 — then abandoned it for a few years and then came back and started adding things without reviewing what was already on my list…. this fits me to a T.
How it works:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
Current TBR list amount: 971
Because this is my first week I’ll be doing the first 10 today.
Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare
Ummm, wow… okay, so this is the first book added to my TBR, besides any I might have already read… Considering this is on my series reading challenge this year…
Angelfire (Angelfire #1) by Courtney Allison Moulton
This one is #1 on TBR list currently because it has been on the list so long and I want to see if the series is even worth reading or if it is just taking up space. It sounds decent, but who knows. Anyhow, I currently have a hold on it at my library.
Midnight’s Daughter (Dorina Basarab #1) by Karen Chance
This is another one which I’m on the fence about… it does sound interesting. Another positive point, my library does have it, even as an e-book AND audiobook.
Sweet on You (The Cupcake Diaries #1) by Darlene Panzera
I may have gone through a ‘cooking cozy mystery’ phase and this book looks so cute and yummy!! I want to keep this one, but realistically… I don’t think I’ll ever get to it. Also, it has a 3.3 rating on Goodreads… so better safe than waste my time?
Judgement: Go (unless someone convinces me to bring it back)
Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1) by Chloe Neill
Date added to TBR: May 20th, 2012
Okay, I love vampire books, plus she is a grad school student which would make this New Adult, right? Also, available at the library so….
Night Embrace (Dark-Hunterverse #3/ Dark Hunter #2) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Date added to TBR: May 23rd, 2012
Hmm… apparently, I have read the books that came before this, but I honestly don’t remember them at all so….
Mind Games (The Disillusionists #1) by Carolyn Crane
Date added to TBR: May 23rd, 2012
Hmmm, I am very much on the fence with this one… it seems interesting, but it also has a love triangle. I also read that it is super different from other PNRs, so….
Judgement: Keep (for now)
The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1) by Kresley Cole
I’m not sure I’m into these books too much anymore. I mean I like PNR, but I don’t care so much about the massive amounts of sex, so….
Marked (Eternal Guardians #1) by Elisabeth Naughton
War with the Underworld? Interesting
Woman has to die, but man falls in love with her? Meh
Odd Thomas (Odd Thomas #1) by Dean Koontz
When I was in high school I was a huge fan of Dean Koontz. I’ve also been meaning to read this one for a long time– I have gotten it from the library, but then I never get around to reading it… I think I’ll keep it around longer and hope for the best.
I hope you liked this insider’s look at my TBR list. Hopefully I can keep it down until next week when I do this again ^_^
What do you think about my Judgements? Should I change any?
