I started playing along with this meme after I saw it on Amanda’s blog Literary Weaponry. Time for part five!
The idea is:
- You go on to your Goodreads want to read shelf.
- Order the books so the date ascends.
- Take the first 5 or however many you want books. If you’re already doing this you start where you left off last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Then decide whether it stays or goes!
I’ve decided to do six books at a time from now otherwise I’ll still be doing this in years to come!
Current TBR: 228
I Remember You by Harriet Evans – Tess moves back to her home town reuniting with her childhood friend, Adam. This one seems to have quite a few one star reviews. Not feeling the need to read it. DELETE
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella – There was a time when I devoured and constantly reread books by Kinsella which is why I’m guessing this is on my tbr as it’s one I haven’t read. Poppy loses her engagement ring and on searching finds an abandoned mobile phone. The owner wants it back though. From the sounds of it some of this novel may be written in the form of texts and emails? I may be wrong. It does sound quite interesting if it is. KEEP
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot – Another one I should have read when I was younger which is why I think it’s on my list. I did enjoy the film but not sure if I want to read it. If I see it in the library I might pick it up so for now KEEP
Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot – Apparently I added a few of her books at the same time. From the reviews it seems that people find this a standard chick-lit, nothing exciting, mainly just okay. Lizzie can’t keep secrets and her blabbing causes trouble. Seems to be the general gist. DELETE
From Notting Hill With Love…Actually by Ali McNamara – Scarlett loves movies and gets a chance to house sit in Notting Hill, one of her favourite film locations. She finds her life is starting to resemble a romantic comedy itself. Lots of people seem to like this for the film references. Lots of other people didn’t like it as it was too full of clichés. DELETE
Midnight by Jacqueline Wilson – I think I’d realised there were a lot of Jacqueline Wilson books I hadn’t read so there seems to be a few on my tbr list. This one focuses on Violet who, from the reviews, seems to have quite a dangerous and unsafe relationship with her brother. A new girl, Jasmine, befriends Violet, seemingly changing her life for the better. But is she a true friend? Lots of reviews suggest this is definitely not a children’s book and more young adult from the themes. It does sound quite interesting. KEEP
New TBR: 226 (should be 225 but I added one in the middle of writing this!)
