I started playing along with this meme after I saw it on Amanda’s blog Literary Weaponry. I still can’t find the original. Time for part thirteen!
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!
So I did go through my list and get rid of all those that I’ve paid for on my Kindle. Which was apparently a lot! My tbr has gone done considerably!
Current TBR: 81

House Of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas – I only discovered Maas this year and have since read six books in the Throne of Glass series (Tower of Dawn is next). I really want to read A Court of Thorns and Roses next as everyone says this is much better than Throne of Glass, Cresent City is her new adult fantasy and has so many mixed reviews. Some people hate it, others love it. I guess I’ll make up my own mind. KEEP
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater – This series has been on my radar for a while and lots of people count Stiefvater as one of their favourite authors. But again this seems to have either hate it or love it reviews on Goodreads. A girl who watches a pack of wolves and a boy who is part of that pack in winter but shifts back to a human in summer. KEEP
The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe – I added this after reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz. I did enjoy that so it would be interesting to read another book inspired by an actual person. KEEP
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas – Well I’ve already said I want to read this series after I finish Throne of Glass. Everyone on Bookstagram seems to prefer this series to ToG and I can’t wait to start it! KEEP
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson – I read the first Mistborn book about 6 years ago and this sequel has been on my tbr since then. I’ve actually been lent this book so will do a reread of the first Mistborn then read this one. KEEP
New TBR: 81 I think I’ll have to stop this series soon as the rest on my tbr are ones I’ve added in the last few months. I’ll have to think of a different feature to do on a Sunday!
