Down the TBR Hole #79

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads 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?

I will be repeating this process until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR.

My TBR pile shot up to 884 thanks to finding books on my shelves that I forgot to add to Goodreads when I brought them home.

This week’s books:

The Card Catalog by The Library of Congress – KEEP.  This is the ultimate coffee table book for library and book lovers.  I still don’t own a copy of it, but I will someday.

100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith – GO.  Meh.  The synopsis doesn’t inspire me to want to pick this book up.

The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury – GO.  The cover and title made this book seem so much more interesting than the synopsis does, which sounds like a stereotypical YA Romance in a Fantasy setting.  No, thank you.

Donny’s Brain by Rona Munro – GO.  Another non-inspiring synopsis.

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone – KEEP.  This book is about a teenage girl struggling with mental illness while trying to navigate high school and everything else that comes along with being a teenage girl.  It will probably be a difficult read, but I enjoy stories that don’t sugar coat that time of life.

My TBR pile is down to 881 books. Because of how up in the air everything in my life is right now, I don’t know if I’ll finish any books by next weekend, but next week’s post will be mostly made up of more free audiobooks I got during Audiobook SYNC.
