Down the TBR Hole #113

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 still holding steady at 1129.  I finished a couple of books but also added a couple of books.
This week’s books:

Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin – KEEP.  I have no idea if I’m going to like this book, but it’s a classic Horror novel and I feel like I must at least give it a chance.

Dark Harvest by Norman Partridge – KEEP.  I tried to start this during last year’s 24-Hour Readathon, but I couldn’t get into it.  I’m not sure if it was because I was tired or if it was the story, so I’m going to try again this year during #RIP, but not during the readathon.

Suspicious Minds by Gwenda Bond- KEEP.  I’m a huge “Stranger Things” fan, and I know the show isn’t going to last forever, but at least there’s this book along with five others.

The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud – KEEP.  Another book blogger recommended this several years ago, and it was available to check out through Prime Reading on Amazon.  It’s been sitting in my Kindle library ever since, mostly because it’s a fairly long book (nearly 500 pages).  Maybe I’ll finally read it sometime this year or next, now that my annual reading goal is more relaxed.

Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire – KEEP.  I really enjoyed Rosemary and Rue, the first book in the “October Daye” series, and I bought a couple of the author’s other books along with this one, mostly because I love the titles (is it weird to buy a book based on the title?).
My want-to-read shelf remains at 1129 books. The next post will be a hodgepodge of books from different genres.
