I started playing along with this meme after I saw it on Amanda’s blog Literary Weaponry. Time for part eight!
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!
Current TBR: 218

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han – This is the third book in the series, I added this after seeing the first film on Netflix. I have the whole series on my wishlist on Book Depository so this is a KEEP
Herding Cats by Sarah Anderson – I added this after seeing Sarah’s Scribbles everywhere on social media. I love her comics so this is a KEEP
Am I There Yet by Mari Andrew – This is similar to the previous book in that I was familiar with her art through social media and so when I discovered her book it went on my tbr! All the bad reviews seem to be from people who have no experience of her work. I, however, love her work and so it’s a KEEP
Vox by Christina Dalcher – This has been all over bookstagram recently. A dystopian where the government has decided women are not allowed to speak more than 100 words a day. This has got mixed reviews on Goodreads but I’ve only heard positive things about it on Instagram. I love dystopian so it’s a KEEP
New TBR: 217. I don’t think I’ll get under 200 as I have so many unread books on my Kindle!
