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 one book to 1131. I got this month’s Nightmares from Nowhere bookclub book.
This week’s books:
Sarah’s Quilt and The Star Garden by Nancy E. Turner – KEEP. I absolutely loved These Is My Words and I really need to read the sequel, which has been sitting on my bookshelf for far too long.
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett – GO. I don’t know why I have this book, but I think I picked it up from a Little Free Library near my apartment when I lived in California. I’ll find one near where I live now so that someone who wants to read it can have it.
Murder in the Mystery Suite by Ellery Adams – KEEP. I have the audiobook, and I’ve enjoyed Adam’s other series, “Secret, Book, and Scone Society” so far.
Abarat: Absolute Midnight by Clive Barker – KEEP. This is the last book in the “Abarat” series, and I’m planning on reading it during RIP this year.
A War in Crimson Embers by Alex Marshall – KEEP. The first book of “The Crimson Empire” series, A Crown for Cold Silver was awesome, and I have the 2nd book, A Blade of Black Steel. The only problem is that each book is around 600 pages long, and I tend to put them aside for shorter books.
My want-to-read shelf is back down to 1130 books. The next post will be mostly physical books I already own and, at first glance, they all look like keepers.
