I first saw this meme on Amanda’s blog Literary Weaponry but the original is on Lost in a Story blog (can’t find it to link to though.)
The idea is:
- You go on to your Goodreads want to read shelf.
- order the books so the date ascends
- Take the first five or however many you want. If you’re already doing this you start from where you left off last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide whether to keep it or delete it!
Currently I have 237 books on my Goodreads want to read shelf. Apparently I first started adding to this back in 2011! I don’t think I’ve looked at it since! Hence the need to organise it.
The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares – We watched this film a lot at uni so I obviously wanted to read the book too. I don’t think I want to buy this one but I’ll definitely look out for it at the library! KEEP
In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner – Same as before. I loved this film, hadn’t realised it was a book and so wanted to read it. It’s not quite my taste any more but again if I saw it in the library I might pick this up. KEEP
Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot – I think I remember realising that I hadn’t read any Meg Cabot books so went searching for some. I’ve just read the blurb of this and don’t think it’s my cup of tea any more so it is gone! DELETE
Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger – I think I’d read one of her books before which is why I added it but I just don’t feel interested any more. There are too many fantasy/young adult/dystopian books out there now! DELETE
The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot – I had to look at the description of this one to decide and I actually really like the idea of the story being told through email. KEEP
TBR new total: 235
How many books have you got on your tbr Goodreads?
