This idea was started by Lia @ Lost in a Story. It is a great way to declutter your TBR shelf!
I have 289 books on my TBR- I had 262 last time I did this!! AHHH
This is how it works:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
Boy Recession by Flynn Meaney– The reviews on this book are not great, and I don’t even remember why I put this on my TBR!
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand– This book used to be all the rage, and the summary still appeals to me! The reviews on goodreads are really good. I have been wanting to read more books about angels!
The Giver by Lois Lowry– I feel like everyone has read and loved The Giver! It sounds exactly like the kind of book I would love!
It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini– This still appeals to me. It seems like mental illness is handled well, and that is something I am interested in reading!
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelina– Reviewers who I trust on goodreads did not like this book. There are so many series I still need to read that this one is not a priority for me.
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl– There are so many mixed reviews! I also watched the movie and did not like it!
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare– I really need to see what all the Wil Herondale hype is about!
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace– This is over 1000 pages… lets be real- I will never read this!
Graceling by Kristin Cashore– I own this book and still really want to read it! I have been recommended this book many times as well! I also love when I have the same name as an author!
Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea by Chelsea Handler– I don’t even like Chelsea Handler that much so I am not sure why this on my TBR! Her sense of humour just isn’t for me!
So there you have it! I am keeping 5 and getting rid of 5! I am pretty happy with that! Do you agree with my choices? I would love to know!
