Started by Lost in a Story, the most fun way to cut down that TBR!
- 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 Last Time I Wore a Dress by Dylan “Daphne” Scholinski and Jane Meredith Adams
There are lots of conflicting reviews and nobody I know has read this. Maybe I’ll end up picking it up later, but for now: REMOVE.
His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet
Not really catching my interest. REMOVE.
Bluets by Maggie Nelson
Still think this is worth trying. KEEP.
Black Swan Green by David Mitchell
Again, not really feeling any interest. REMOVE.
The Boy in the Earth by Fuminori Nakamura and translated by Allison Markin Powell
The goodreads average is under 3.5 and none of my friends have read it, but I’m intrigued. KEEP.
Perfect Chaos by Linea Johnson and Cinda Johnson
I know this is a dual memoir, but I’m not interested in reading memoirs by parents about neurodivergent children at the moment. REMOVE.
Otherwise by Jane Kenyon
Depression and New Hampshire. Okay yes. KEEP.
Ariel by Sylvia Plath
Okay yes definitely. KEEP.
Unholy Ghost edited by Nell Casey
Wow I was on a depression kick, huh? This still sounds good. KEEP.
The 57 Bus by Dashka Slater
I’ve almost read this several times and then not wanted to. I don’t know that I’m ever going to. REMOVE.
I managed to remove 5 out of 10 books today. Any decisions you would have made differently?
