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 decreased a bit to 1094, thanks to finishing several books over the past couple of weeks since my last post. This week’s books: On Beauty by Zadie Smith – GO. I remember getting this book years ago in one of the first subscription boxes I ever signed up for, but I don’t remember what it was called. I do know that I cancelled that subscription not too long into it because all of the books were Literary Fiction. I’ve rarely ever enjoyed that genre, and as much as I would love to be the kind of person who reads Zadie Smith and discuss it intelligently, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I am just not that person.
Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, and The Dark Tower by Stephen King – KEEP. Considering it is my goal to eventually (finally) finish this series, there is no way I will be getting rid of these books until they’ve been read. Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey – KEEP. This is a “must read” series for lovers of Fantasy, so I will at the very least read the first book to see if it’s a series I want to continue. The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller- KEEP. This is yet another book I got for free from a friend getting rid of a bunch of his old books. The synopsis is a little vague, but I’m going to give it a try. The Diviners by Libba Bray – KEEP. I’ve enjoyed Bray’s “Gemma Doyle” series so far, so I picked this book up several years back when I was at the Texas Book Festival. It’s a 1920’s New York Supernatural Murder Mystery and that appeals to me.
My TBR pile is down one to 1093 books. The next post will be yet more physical books I own, but there’s a random ebook in there, so we’ll see if anything shakes loose.
