Down the TBR Hole #123

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 skyrocketed to 1141 books.  I bought a Humble Bundle ebook bundle of Seanan McGuire’s “October Daye” and “InCryptid” series.
This week’s books:

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire – KEEP.  This is the first book in yet another series, “Wayward Children,” by McGuire that I want to read.

Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdes – KEEP.  I was hoping to get to this book for this year’s #SciFiSummer, but with less than 3 weeks to go, I doubt that will happen.  I’ll have to make it a priority for next year.

Artificial Condition by Martha Wells – KEEP.  This is another book I want to read for the Sci-Fi Summer reading challenge this year, and it’s short enough that I might get to it.

Inconspicious Consumption by Tatiana Schlossberg – GO.  I don’t know why, but I originally thought this was a book more about how to be a Minimalist than anything else, but its focus is on the horrible consequences of consumerism, which I already know more than enough about.

No Man’s Land by Simon Tolkien – GO.  If I remember correctly, the author is J.R.R. Tolkien’s grandson, so, of course, I was immediately intrigued; however, I don’t think I can take on such a dark and heart-breaking story as the synopsis makes this book out to be.
My want-to-read shelf is back down a couple of books to 1139. The next post will be mostly ebooks I already own.
