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 back up to 1138 books. I added a book to my wishlist.
This week’s books:
The Sound of Stars by Alechia Dow – KEEP. I want to read about an alien who loves pop music!
Bent Heavens by Daniel Kraus – KEEP. I’m not sure about this one. It’s Science Fiction, but it’s also Horror. I’m going to try it out next year when #SciFiSummer and #RIP overlap.
The History of The Hobbit by John D. Rateliff – KEEP. I will buy and read almost any book related to The Hobbit.
Recursion by Blake Crouch – GO. I bought this during the pandemic when the independent bookstores in my area were starting to open back up. I remember not wanting to leave the store without buying anything, but I couldn’t find anything I REALLY wanted to read. There was also a bit of a line of people waiting to come into the store. Those aren’t the best reasons to buy any book, but that’s what happened, and I can let this one go now.
The Horror Club by Mark Morris – KEEP. The original title of this book is Toady. I’m not sure why it was changed; probably for marketing purposes. I had it on my wishlist under the original title for a long time but wasn’t able to find it anywhere until I found out about the title change.
My want-to-read shelf is back down one book to 1137. The next post will be mostly Horror books I already own.
