Down the TBR Hole #104

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 up again to 1144.  I finished a book, but I added a couple more to my wishlist.
This week’s books:

The League of Beastly Dreadfuls by Holly Grant – KEEP.  I love darker Middle-Grade Fantasy.

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins – KEEP.  I think I started this book several years ago, but never finished it.  I probably got distracted by other books.  I will attempt to read this one again at some point.

A College of Magics by Caroline Stevermer – KEEP.  I’m a little skeptical of this one, despite my love of Middle-Grade Fantasy, because the character and place names seem ridiculous and like the author is trying too hard to be original.  I’m willing to give it a chance, though.

Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis – KEEP. This one looks too cute to not be worth keeping.

The Man Who Laughs by Victor Hugo – GO.  The synopsis sounds far too depressing for this book to remain on my wishlist.
My want-to-read shelf is back down to 1143 books. The next post will be mostly ebooks I own and I don’t have a clue from first glance if I’ll want to keep them or not.
