Down the TBR #108

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-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?

My shelf is down one book to 1131.  I finished a book this week.
This week’s books:

The Rain Watcher by Tatiana De Rosnay – KEEP.  I don’t remember where I got this book, but the story is set in Paris, and I’m pretty sure I read a review from one of the many blogs I used to read during that time and decided it was for me.  I still think that, so I have no problem with keeping it.

We Are All Completely Fine by Daryl Gregory – KEEP.  This sounds like it will be just as awesome as Spoonbenders.

Kill the Farm Boy by Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne – KEEP.  I tend to love comical Fantasy stories, and they usually end up on my list of all-time favorites.  They’re fun, light, and don’t take themselves too seriously.  I’m looking forward to reading this one, especially since it’s the first in a series.

The Radium Girls by Kate Moore – GO. This is one of those books that is probably really good, but I only got it because I felt I *should* read it, and that is never a good thing for me when it comes to books, especially if it’s a sad Non-Fiction story.

Willa of the Wood by Robert Beatty – KEEP.  I loved Beatty’s “Serafina” series, so I immediately bought this when it came out.  Now that I’ve finished the “Serafina” series, I will probably start this one sooner rather than later.
My want-to-read shelf is down one more book to 1130 books. The next post will be a mix of physical, audio, and ebooks I already own, along with a book that has been on my wishlist for quite some time.
