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 a couple of books to 1136. I finished a couple of audiobooks.
This week’s books:
The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso – KEEP. I have no idea when or where I got this ebook, and I’m not even sure if it was a freebie or if I bought it based on a recommendation or review. I’ll give it the 50-page test.
Big Damn Hero by Nancy Holder, The Magnificent Nine by James Lovegrove, and Generations by Tim Lebbon – KEEP. “Firefly” is one of my all-time favorite TV shows, and there is no way that I’ll get rid of these books.
The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom – GO. While I’m sure this is an amazing story, the synopsis makes it seem like it is very heavy on religion, and I’m just not interested. The Wisdom of Wolves by Jim and Jamie Dutcher – KEEP. The authors literally lived along side a pack of wolves for several years. There’s no way I’m not going to read this at some point.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber – KEEP. The synopsis reminds me a little of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, though the plots don’t seem similar at all. I’m willing to give it a try.
My want-to-read shelf is down to 1135 books. The next post will be full of physical books I already own, and I know without a doubt that (with the exception of one book), I won’t be getting rid of them.
