It’s Sundayyyy. You already know what that means.
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?

Let’s see what we’ve got this week (31-45 on my TBR on GoodReads):
Top Ten – Katie Cotugno
I liked Fireworks by Katie Cotugno so I guess I wanted to try out something else of hers, but this looks incredibly boring to me. I can appreciate the sentimentality an adolescent might feel from high school ending but I don’t really want to read a whole book about recounting their top ten memories. /:
My Sister’s Keeper – Jodi Picoult
If you’ve seen this movie and you have a heart, you probably cried. At least, I did. I really enjoyed the story and even though I don’t generally go for books that will completely destroy me while ripping my heart out and stomping on it, I’d really like to read this. I’ll definitely have to wait until my mindset can handle it, but I am 100% keeping this one.
Cut – Patricia McCormick
I’m genuinely torn on this. I like to read books that go into the topic of mental health and illnesses and I’d really like to fit more of them in. However, it’s really saddening when a book like that doesn’t come out right (if that makes sense). All of the reviews I’ve checked out for this say that it’s very dry, short, and impersonal, which I feel like would ruin it for me…
Will Grayson, Will Grayson – John Green & David Levithan
Being that I am not really a fan of either John Green or David Levithan, I worry that this book would be a let down. I’ve only actually read one book from David Levithan, but it was definitely a disappointment (for me). I have a weird relationship with John Green because Looking for Alaska is one of my favorite books of all time but I hate his other novels. So… I think I’ll skip this one.
By the Time You Read This, I’ll Be Dead – Julie Anne Peters
This is another with mental health & illnesses rep, which is always intriguing to me. It looks like the topics are quite on the deep & dark side, but that doesn’t scare me away. I see a lot of mixed thoughts on it, but I’m willing to give it a try. I have a few of Julie Anne Peters books on my TBR so if I read something else of hers and figure out that I don’t like her writing, I can easily remove this later.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think that this is the very first time that I’ve taken three books off of my TBR in one swoop! That’s both exciting and saddening to me.
