Down the TBR Hole #93

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-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 shelf has grown quite a bit since my last post.  It currently stands at 1154.  I’ve added a lot of books to my TBR, but also to my wish list.

This week’s books:

The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma – KEEP.  Time Travel and Literary Classics?  Yes, Please!

These Restless Heads by James Branch Cabell – GO.  Goodreads doesn’t have a synopsis, but luckily the one review did. This book is a Non-Fiction account of the author’s life during the 1920s in Richmond, Virginia.  I have the ebook, but I have no idea where or why I got it.  It was probably a freebie, but regardless, I have no interest in reading it.

20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill – KEEP.  After reading Heart-Shaped Box, I’m definitely going to give this short-story collection a try.

The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy- KEEP. This is by the same author that wrote Tess of the D’Urbervilles, which I gave 4 stars, so I’m willing to give this one a chance.

A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan – KEEP.  This book is considered a Classic and involves music, so I will definitely read this one.
My want-to-read shelf and my TBR are down one to 1153 books. The next post will be all physical books that I own, and all but one look like keepers.  We’ll see.
