Down the TBR Hole #3

I know, I know. I’m just surprised as anyone else that I’m keeping up with a weekly tag. But here we all are.

Here are the rules:

  • 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?

(This tag was created by Lost in a Story)

Let’s see what we’ve got this week (11-15 on my TBR on GoodReads):

Sad GirlsSad Girls– Lang Leav 

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m desperate to get my hands on a Lang Leav book. I have no idea if she’s as good of a novelist as she is a poet, but I’ll happily read this book and find out.

 

Verdict: Keep 

 

Whispers: The Voices of ParanoiaWhispers: The Voices of Paranoia– Ronald K. Siegel 

My mom picked this up for me from a second-hand store one day and it looks so interesting. It’s also pretty highly rated so I don’t know why I haven’t read this yet, considering its been sitting on my shelves for at least a year. Basically, I suck.

 

Verdict: Keep 

 

99 Days99 Days– Katie Cotugno

Reading the synopsis for this book gives me the impression that I will 100% hate it. I’m not sure why I ever even added it to my TBR in the first place. I’ve read a Katie Cotugno novel before, and I didn’t mind it, but it was more about friendship than romantic relationships. Romances are just so boring to me.

Verdict: Remove 

 

All We Know of LoveAll We Know of Love– Nora Raleigh Baskin 

This looks like a cute enough story, but not one that I’d necessarily enjoy. I think Nora Baskin is known more for middle-grade novels, which I don’t mind reading, but with the provided synopsis, I think this would just be a bit too underwhelming for me. Road-trip stories are definitely fun, but funner when the character is with people they actually know.

Verdict: Remove 

 

A Map for Wrecked GirlsA Map for Wrecked Girls– Jessica Taylor 

I’m pretty positive that I added this to my list because it has a cover that I’m kind of in love with. We all know I’m a sucker for both flowers and the color yellow. And this has both. But aside from that, I actually think I’d still be interested in reading this book. I’m not sure the whole “ship-wrecked” thing would be too enjoyable to read about, but I’m definitely down to read about sister’s (VS. reading a romance).

Verdict: Keep 


Well, we are keeping 3/5! I believe that makes my total tally 4/15 for books I’m removing from my TBR list. I’m glad I’m de-cluttering, but also sad to be saying goodbye to books… anyone else ever feel that way?

  1. I feel sad when I’m finished with a book that really got me interested in the characters. When I’ve had to push through, I’m relieved. Totally depends on the book.

    1. I feel the exact same way! Some characters are so hard to say goodbye to, but others you’re ready to kick out the door 😅
