Down the TBR Hole #86

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 shot up to 1098 books.  I finished the first book in a series, Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor, and added the rest of the series to my wishlist. This week’s books:

Hemingway Didn’t Say That by Garson O’Toole – KEEP.  This was a freebie, as many of my ebooks are, and I’m going to keep it because it sounds interesting, though it might end up being a dud as a lot of free and/or clearance Non-Fiction books tend to be. Extracted by R.R. Haywood – GO.  Time-Travel books are usually in my wheelhouse, but I’m just not feelin’ this one. Enemy by K. Eason – GO.  I’m not feelin’ this Fantasy novel, either. Golden Age by James Maxwell – GO. The synopsis for this book sounds like this is a Fantasy world ripped off from Ancient cultures. While a lot of Fantasy borrows elements from the real world, both past and present, this one sounds wholly unoriginal. Fan Phenomena: Doctor Who ed. by Paul Booth – KEEP.  I won a physical copy of this book, along with another one I’ll be taking a look at in the next post, from a blog giveaway years ago.  I’m still very much interested in reading it, and it will probably inspire me to re-watch “Doctor Who” for the third time.
My TBR pile is down a smidge to 1095 books. In the next post, I’ll start getting into a lot of the physical books I own that I had finally added to Goodreads after several years of saying I would get around to it eventually.
