Welcome back to a snapshot of my TBR 🙂
- Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
- Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
- Find 5-10 (or more, if you feel ambitious!) titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”)
- ALTERNATIVE OPTION: Find 5+ titles that are at the BOTTOM of your TBR—books you want to read someday, just not right now!
- Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation
- Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending
- List the last 5 (or more!) books you added to your TBR, with a synopsis or your brief summary of why you added it (the “highs”)

- Out of the Blues by Trudy Nan Boyce
I read a few pages of this, thanks to Amazon’s Look Inside feature. It…. isn’t bad, but I’m just not interested. I’ve been keeping it for the time I want to read a cop book, but those times don’t come up often, so I’ll drop this one.
- Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
This is one I read years ago and remember liking, but I never continued the series. I still want to give this one a try sooner or later.
- Rend the Dark by Mark Gelineau & Joe King
This one is actually on my Monthly TBR!
- The Glass Gargoyle by Marie Andreas
This one isn’t at any of my libraries, so I gotta remove it. I need to be more strict this time through the TBR.
- Depravity by M.J. Haag
Intrigued from the first page! I put a hold on it to read soon — it is short, so it won’t get in the way of my weekly & monthly TBRs too much. I’m so ready for this gritty The Beauty & The Beast retelling
❌ 2 removed!
✔ 2 to be read soon!

fewbooks I added from those lists.

Okay, four adds because of GR lists isn’t too bad. Plus, these four are all ones I’ve seen around before and have thought of adding.
Total: 702 — 21 up from last week. Just… ugh… my poor TBR will never recover haha.
If you made it this far: Thank you so much for sticking around! I’m sorry this post ended up so long! I’ll try to do better 🙂
