Hello everyone and welcome to the second installment of my journey in decluttering my goodreads TBR shelf. I am excited to give this another go and I am hoping to get rid of quite a lot this go. Fingers crossed and onto the sorting!
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) 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?
Snow & Rose by Emily Winfield Martin
Added on Dec 22, 2017. While this fairy tale graphic novel looks very adorable and it seems to have the possibility of going dark like a traditional fairytale, I am not feeling this one anymore so I am going to be removing this book from my TBR.
Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It by Gary Taubes
Added on Dec 28, 2017. At the time I was really looking into weight-loss books, right now I am not really interested in this topic so I am going to be removing it from my TBR, but if you are interested in this topic I have heard good things about it.
The Girl Who Cried Wolf by Bella James
Added on Jan 03, 2018. This novel looks like it is a very powerful story the revolves around a young women who may have realized a huge life lesson too late. While this does sound interesting and I may in the future look back on this post and re-add it to my TBR, but right now I am going to be removing it because I have not been in the mood for stories such as these.
The Butcher’s Hook by Janet Ellis
Added on Jan 03, 2018. After reading the desciption for this book, I can say that I am very interested in finding out what the line “he shows no fear or hesitation. Even if it means getting a little blood on her hands” means (source). I am going to be keeping this on my TBR.
Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict
Added on Jan 03, 2018. While this does seem interesting, I am not really drawn to reading about how a women going missing turned a man around. I am going to be removing it from my TBR.
Crooked House by Agatha Christie
Added on Jan 03, 2018. Alright, I am just going to make this simple for myself. This was written by Agatha Christie, so I am keeping it. I love her work.
The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World by Peter Wohlleben
Added on Jan 07, 2018. The first thing I saw when I opened this goodreads page was that this was a series. I will be honest I am not in the mood to start a series so I am going ot be removing this from my TBR.
The Night Guest by Fiona McFarlane
Added on Jan 31, 2018. This description seems like it might be a mix of a thriller and maybe magical realism? At this point in time I am not interested in reading this book due to the fact that I really was not make me feel like I needed to read it ASAP. I am going to be removing it from my TBR.
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Added on Feb 03, 2018. I actually have this in my shopping cart waiting for me to buy this. While it is a trilogy I am really in the mood to read this because it would be perfect to read once the weather turns cold. I am going to be keeping this book on my TBR.
Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World by Mackenzi Lee and Petra Eriksson
Added on Feb 08, 2018. While this book sounds amazing. I know I am not going to be reading this book or picking it up. The main reason being is I already have a book that is very similar to this and I do not want to buy a book that shares a lot of its content with one I already own. I am sad to say I will be removing this book at this time, but it sounds amazing!
