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.
