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 two books to 1129. I read a couple of books, DNF’d another book, removed a couple of books from my wish list after realizing I didn’t want to read them, and added another book to my wish list.
This week’s books:
The Perfection Detox by Petra Kolber – KEEP. I completed one of Kolber’s workshops during the pandemic, and that inspired me to buy the book, but it’s sat on my shelves ever since. I don’t know why, but I tend to do that with Self-Help books. I’ll get around to reading this one at some point, though I have no idea when.
Exploring J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit by Corey Olsen – KEEP. I love all things having to do with Hobbits.
Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist- KEEP. This one is a Swedish vampire story, and it sounds like it will be very interesting and perfect for the Readers Imbibing Peril challenge.
Among the Shadows by L.M. Montgomery – KEEP. I remember reading and loving this when I was a kid. When I found it online through a used bookstore, I immediately bought it.
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – KEEP. I enjoyed Heart-Shaped Box, and I have several other books of Hill’s that I’ve bought because they sound like they’re right up my Horror alley. This is one of them, and the only reason I haven’t read it yet is because I can’t decide if I should read it during #RIP or during the Christmas season.
My want-to-read shelf is holding steady at 1129 books. The next post will be mostly books I already own that are #RIP worthy.
