Down the TBR Hole #120

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 books.  I finished a couple of books this week but added a couple of books to my wishlist.
This week’s books:

The Thief Knot by Kate Milford – KEEP.  I absolutely love the “Greenglass House” series.  This is the 4th book in the series, and I’m looking forward to reading it this Winter.

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater – KEEP.  Stiefvater is an auto-buy author for me, especially anything related to “The Raven Cycle” series.

The Brightfount Diaries by Brian W. Aldiss – KEEP.  I’m not sure I’ll enjoy this as much as I hope, but it’s about life working in a bookshop, which is in my wheelhouse house so I’ll keep it on my wishlist for now.

A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit – KEEP.  I have a couple of Solnit’s other books that I also haven’t read yet, so I’m not sure why I bought this one beyond the title piquing my interest.  I’ll keep it for now.

I Am a Cat by Sōseki Natsume – KEEP.  I will try this one again at some point, but it’s less about the cat than about Japanese society.  I didn’t pay attention to that part of the book blurb when I bought it, which is not surprising, given the title and my love of cats.
My want-to-read shelf remains at 1129 books. The next post will again be mostly books I already own.
