Down the TBR Hole #117

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 1128.  I finished a few books this week, but also added a book to my wishlist.
This week’s books:

Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan – KEEP.  I loved the show on Netflix, and I would like to see how different the book is from the adaptation.

Legend by Marie Lu – KEEP.  This was my first “Mini” edition book, and I bought it because I wanted an easier way to carry a book with me around San Franciso while also lightening the amount of stuff in my bag.  I unfortunately never got around to reading it, though I think I did start it on the bus one day.  I probably got distracted by another book, so I’ll give this one a chance at some point; maybe even during this year’s #SciFiSummer.

The Saturday Night Ghost Club by Craig Davidson- KEEP.  According to GoodReads, a lot of people who read this also enjoyed books by Grady Hendrix.  Since he’s become an “auto-buy” author to me, I’m more than willing to give this book a shot.

Confession of a Buddhist Atheist by Stephen Batchelor – KEEP.  I don’t know if I’m an Atheist, but I do consider myself to be a Buddhist.  Maybe I’m more of a Buddhist Agnostic?  Regardless, I’m very interested in reading this book.

Siege and Sacrifice by Charlie N. Holmberg – KEEP.  This is the third book in the “Numina” trilogy, which I haven’t started yet, so I’ll keep this one on my wishlist until I have a better idea of whether or not I want to continue past the first book, Smoke and Summons.
My want-to-read shelf is holding steady at 1128 books. The next post will be mostly ebooks I already own.
