Down the TBR Hole #119

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 1 book to 1129.  I finished a book this week, but I also added a couple of books to my wishlist.
This week’s books:

Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver – KEEP.  The synopsis had me at “a large manor house” and “gothic.”

The Invited by Jennifer McMahon – KEEP.  Another haunted house ghost story that might be right up my alley.  

The Plague Stones and The Hollow Tree by James Brogden – KEEP.  I usually don’t buy a second book by an author I’ve never read before until I’ve finished the first one, but these were both a bit of a “cover buy,” and the synopses for both sound like Brogden might quickly become a favorite.  I hope that turns out to be true.

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix – KEEP.  I’m looking forward to finally reading this one for this year’s #RIP.

Soon by Lois Murphy – KEEP.  I’m going to give this one a try, but the reviews give me the impression that I’ll either love it or hate it.  I think a 50/50 chance is worth the 50-page test.
My want-to-read shelf is holding steady at 1129 books. The next post will be mostly physical books I own.
