Down the TBR Hole #85

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?

My TBR pile went up again to 1070 books. This week’s books:

Lost in Arcadia by Sean Gandert – GO.  This story seems to be an exaggeration of current events set in the near future, and I’m tired of the real world as it is.  I’ll pass on this one. The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King – GO.  An orphan who is constantly ill is picked by a tyrant to be one of his courtesans or wives if she wins in battle against his current courtesans and wives?!  Is it just me, or does that not make any sense at all?! Hannah: The Ugly Teapot by Fred Holmes – KEEP.  I’m skeptical, but it is a Middle-Grade Fantasy, and I LOVE a good Middle-Grade Fantasy.  I’ll give it a shot. Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan – KEEP. I’ve never read a WWII story from the perspective of an Italian. This one also happens to be based on a true story and isn’t just Historical Fiction. Scar Tissue by Scott Wiener – GO.  This literally has one review on Goodreads, and it’s only a star rating at that.  It is also self-published.  I’m not going to waste my time with a book that has been out in the world since 2017 and no one has been willing to review it.
My TBR pile is down to 1067 books. The next post will be made up of more Science Fiction and Fantasy ebooks that I got for free.
