Down the TBR Hole #131

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 at 1132 books.  Though I finished a lot of books this past week, I also added a lot to my wishlist.
This week’s books:

True Grit by Charles Portis – KEEP. I don’t usually read Westerns, but this one sounds intriguing.

The Unbound by Victoria Schwab – KEEP.  This is the 2nd book in the “Archived” series, and I will probably have to reread the 1st book to jog my memory, but I’m okay with that because the 3rd book hasn’t been published yet. I’ll probably wait until there’s a release date.

If It Bleeds by Stephen King – KEEP.  I knew this was a sequel, but I couldn’t remember to which book.  It turns out it’s the sequel to The Outsider along with 3 other unrelated short stories.

Once: A Belmouth Tale by David J. Thacker – KEEP.  This one is still on my wishlist because I’m on the fence about it.  It was recommended in a podcast that I now can’t remember, but it’s also self-published.  I know that sometimes self-published books become some of the best I’ve read, but more often than not, they end up on my DNF list.  The ebook is well under $5, so I might get it at some point, but I’m not in any hurry.

A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians by H.G. Parry – KEEP.  This is an alternate-history fantasy story, and I think I will greatly enjoy it.
My want-to-read shelf remains at 1132 books. The next post will be a mix of ebooks and physical books I already own.
