This is my second installment of Down the TBR Hole, which was created by Lost In A Story. I have actually picked up three of the books from last week’s post. (Even though I was on a self-imposed book-buying ban… OOOOOOOPS!). I hope to read them soon.
A lot of us end up with large unwieldy lists of books we have added as to-read on Goodreads. This is the solution!
It works like this:
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
- Order on ascending date added
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if feeling adventurous!) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: Keep or Go?
So, let’s have a look what we have…
1. The Sun Also Rises (Ernest Hemingway)
Definitely one I still want to read!
2. Raven Son (Nicholas Kotar)
This supposed to be based on Russian folklore. I was so going to get rid of this, as I did not remember saving it to my to-read, but it sounds good.
3. The Wisdom of the Myths (Luc Ferry)
This is about Greek myths. The stories themselves and what we can learn from them. It sounds interesting, but for now…
4. Conflicted (M M Koenig)
I do not recall this book at all and the synopsis does not look THAT interesting. Easy decision!
5. A Monster Calls (Patrick Ness)
I heard so many good things about this book and I really want to read it!
Two books gone! I am quite happy with that.
I think I will be definitely be continuing with this cleansing of my Goodreads TBR. The good thing is that it reminds me what I actually have on my TBR, so I can actually start picking up all these books at some point, so they do not remain on there forever!
