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 KrausKEEP.  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.
