I have seen Nikki over at The Night Is Dark And Full Books do this weekly post, where she looks at her TBR and decides which books to take off of it. This meme is hosted weekly by Lia over at Lost In A Story!
It seemed like I kept seeing this meme more often once I realized it was something people did and I figured I would start doing this too! My Goodreads TBR shelf currently has 73 books on it and some have been on there since August ’12! I think it’s time to evaluate some of those books and make room for more exciting books!
How this meme works is: you sort the books on your TBR by date added, starting with the ones that’ve been on there the longest and then each week you pick 5 (or more, it’s up to you) books and decide which books you want to keep and which books are going off your TBR!
Book #1: Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna And The French Kiss sounds like a fun and quick read, so I am going to keep it for the time being! I also haven’t read any Stephanie Perkins before and since I want to branch out and read more new to me authors this year, I am keeping this book!
Book #2: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
I added Shiver before I ever read any of Maggie’s other book and when I was actually interested in reading about wolves and stuff like that, but I have definitely grown out of that, so I’m sorry Maggie, but this book is going!
Book #3: Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Nope. The summary for Uglies sounds like nothing I would enjoy reading about at this current point in my life, so this book is going too!
Book #4: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I am not sure what I want to do with The Book Thief! I started reading this book in October 2013 and got about 200 pages in, before I put it down and never picked it back up again. But the summary sounds really intriguing and I definitely want to finish it someday. So… I am keeping this book for now!
Book #5: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
The summary for The Iron King sounds kind of meh to me right now and I don’t feel any need to actually pick this book up any time soon, so this book is going!
This now leaves me with a total of 70 books on my Goodreads TBR and I think that number is going to get even smaller once I continue doing this! I can’t wait to see how many books are going to be left on my TBR shelf once I am all done! Check back in next Sunday for part 2!
