Down the TBR Hole #3

Down the TBR Hole is a blogging meme created by Lost in a Story. You can see my previous post here, and continue reading for my latest charge at my too-long TBR list.

This is how it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order by [ascending] date added.
  • Take the first 5 books (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous)
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

In June I removed just two out of ten selected books from my TBR. This month I’m hoping to up that removal number, but let’s see how it goes.

Sorting out my Goodreads TBR Week #3

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

I will never separate this story from Jonathan Taylor Thomas unless I read it.

Verdict: Keep

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

Take this how you will, but this is just one of those books I want to read to see what the fuss is all about.

Verdict: Keep

The View From Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg

I have a copy of this book, which is special to me only because this is one of the first books I remember having on my bookshelves (as a kid, young adult, teenager). And yet I have never read it.

Verdict: Keep

Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata

I can’t remember if I stumbled upon this book at the library or if it was recommended by a book blogger, but per the summary and Goodreads book reviews, I’m still interested in reading it.

Verdict: Keep

The Children Act by Ian McEwan

Reading Saturday in college has led me to add many of Ian McEwan’s books to my TBR, all of which I still want to read.

Verdict: Keep

Sorting out my Goodreads TBR Week #3

The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

I’m a sucker for classics, so this one stays.

Verdict: Keep

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Why the heck would I remove this from my TBR?

Verdict: Keep

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Like I said, I’m a sucker for classics [I haven’t read].

Verdict: Keep

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Again…

Verdict: Keep

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

And again…

Verdict: Keep


Okay, I’m sorry if this was a dull post; I’m keeping all ten books on my TBR. Will I ever remove any? Stay tuned! 😆
