It is week number two for the Down the TBR Hole and I am very excited to go through my TBR again. I really am hoping to get this to a realistic, manageable number…I know, funny…but a girl can dream right?!
This was started by Lia from Lost In A Story and instructions are:
Anyway, it works like this:
- 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?
The fact that I (you?) will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR.
My TBR Selections for this week are…
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
I have owned this book for as long as I can remember. I bought it at a book fair at school and then my brother gave me the next two in the series for Christmas that year. I feel like I have to read this. Maybe I will make it my read for the “a read that has been on your TBR for way to long” on the 2017 Reading Challenge. Verdict: it stays.
Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
Like I said before, this and Pretties were gifts to me from my brother and I’ve had these books on my shelf for a very long time. I have full intentions of reading them. It stays.
Specials by Scott Westerfeld
See above…it stays
Liar Temptress Spy by Karen Abbot
While this sounds interesting, I don’t see myself reading it anytime soon. It goes.
Graduates in Wonderland by Jessica Pan and Rachel Kapelke-Dale
This sounds so interesting. A story of two girls in their early twenties told through emails. I feel like I can learn to see things in a different light. I think this one should stay!
And that’s all for this round. This week, one is getting the boot!
Until next time!
