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 1133. Even though I finished 3 books, I bought some ebooks and an audiobook.
This week’s books:
Deerskin by Robin McKinley – GO. I’ve heard that this is an extremely dark story, and I’m not sure I want to read it after reading the synopsis.
Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley – KEEP. The synopsis sounds like this book will be amazing, and now I’m very much looking forward to reading it!
The Library at Night by Alberto Manguel – KEEP. This sounds like it’s in my wheelhouse, but the other two books of Manguel’s that I’ve read were only 3 stars, and I was being generous. Maybe this one will be better.
Dead Man’s Deal by Jocelynn Drake – KEEP. This is the sequel to Angel’s Ink, which I really enjoyed.
Washington’s Spies by Alexander Rose – KEEP. The Boyfriend and I loved “Turn”, the show based on this book, and I’m planning to read this over the July 4th weekend.
My want-to-read shelf is down one book to 1132. The next post will be all physical books I already own and I highly doubt I’ll be getting rid of any of them.
