Down the TBR Hole #89

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 a couple of books to 1117, despite me finishing several books since my last “Down the TBR Hole” post.  Of course, I keep finding more books to add to my wishlist.

This week’s books:

Labyrinth by Kate Mosse – KEEP.  I came across this book in a Half Price Books store when I was still living in Austin.  I’m a sucker for stories taking place in France, especially when they involve mythology, so I bought it without any clue as to whether or not it would be any good.

Moranifesto by Caitlin Moran – KEEP.  I love Moran and everything I’ve read of hers so far, so  buying this was a no-brainer.

The Hunger Games and Philosophy ed. by George A. Dunn and Nicolas Michaud, – KEEP.  “The Hunger Games” is one of my all-time favorite trilogies, and the 3rd book, especially, helped me process a lot of my experiences in the Army.  I don’t know if this book will do the same, but I am interested to read about the books from a philosophical perspective.

The Essential World of Darkness ed. by Stewart Wieck and Anna Branscome – KEEP. I took this book out of a box of books a friend was getting rid of, but had no idea it was an anthology of stories set in the world of a popular RPG series I have never played.  The Boyfriend says I’ll probably still enjoy it, so I’m going to give it a shot.

Revenge of the Star Survivors by Michael Mershel – KEEP.  I picked this up at the Texas Book Festival several years ago after attending one of the panel events that the author was on.  It sounded like the perfect Middle-Grade-beginning-of-the-school-year book for me.
My TBR pile is holding steady at 1117 books. After scrolling down the list a bit, I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of any of my books in the next few posts, but who knows, maybe there’s a surprise waiting for all of us somewhere in there.
