It’s time for another descend into the TBR hole! We’re nearing the end of my TBR. I can only do two more of these posts before reaching zero. As always, I’m excited to write this post!
The meme was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story. This is 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. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
My TBR now sits at 71 books. You can find my previous posts in this series here.
Little and Lion by Brandy Colbert
I think I put this book on my TBR, because I heard someone rave about it. The synopsis doesn’t intrigue me anymore, though.
The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan
Oooh, this one is difficult. I normally love Rick Riordan’s books, but I’ve found I don’t enjoy the Trials of Apollo that much. I strongly dislike the main character Apollo. I don’t think I’ll add the book to my collection, but I probably will read it when it comes to the library.
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
I most definitely want to read this. I’ve heard such great things! I enjoyed A Thousand Splendid Suns by Hosseini and I’m hoping I’ll feel the same way about The Kite Runner!
An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon
Although I want to read about a black intersex main character, I don’t think I’ll ever realistically get to this. It’s a shame.
On The Come Up by Angie Thomas
Um, of course I’m reading this! It’s Angie Thomas!
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel
I’ve heard this is an adult version of the Illuminae Files. I’m up for that!
Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden
I’m definitely still interested in this! The fact that it’s banned in many places and was even burned in Kansas City makes me want to read it even more.
Here Comes The Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn
This sounds like an amazing novel that’ll be layered. I’m hoping it’ll be heart-breaking.
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
I really want to have read this. I know it won’t be my next favourite book, but it’ll be a quick and fun read!
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez
This is one of my best friend’s favourite books. I’ve promised her I’ll read it. I don’t know when it’ll realistically happen, but I’m not getting rid of it.
BOOKS KEPT: 8
BOOKS GONE: 2
CURRENT TBR TOTAL: 69
I didn’t get rid of many books this time. I suppose that is because we’re almost at the end of my TBR. I added these books relatively recently.
What do you think? Would you have chosen differently? What book should I prioritise?
That’s all for today’s post! I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading. See you next time!
