This idea was started by Lia @ Lost in a Story. It is a great way to declutter your TBR shelf!
My to-read shelf on goodreads is not at 310! So it is up 9 from last week..
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?
Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz– I do not remember why I added this book to my TBR and the synopsis doesn’t really grab me!
Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken– I have heard so many great things about this series and Alexandra Bracken’s writing! There are a lot of great reviews as well!
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead- I have only read the first book in The Vampire Academy series so I just do not see myself getting around to reading Bloodlines anytime soon!
Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick– I loved this movie and I have heard great things about Matthew Quick and all of his books!
Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson– I have read one other book by Morgan Matson and would like to try more of her books! I also love road trip books!
It seems like every time I do a post like this I keep 3 books and get rid of 2! I am pretty happy with that!
Please let me know what you think about any of these books!

This is a really great idea, I should really start doing these. I have so many books on my TBR that need not be there. Also, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour is a really cute contemporary!
It is so helpful! I love that eventually my TBR will only be books I really want to read!
oooohhh “amy and roger’s epic detour” is on my summer tbr! i really want to read it soon, because it’s summer and road trip, hello? 😀
It seems perfect for this time of year!!
I started doing these posts too!! They are so great, and I love going through my TBR (although I find myself questioning my thought process of putting some of the books on there…)
The Darkest Minds is on my TBR too! I really want to read it, and although I have a copy, I haven’t had time to yet/I’ve been procrastinating… WHYYYY
I still need to buy a copy of The Darkest Minds!! I hope you get to it soon and love it!
I love these posts! I need to do another. They’re pretty fun. I does make you wonder what you were thinking some days… 🙃
It’s so true. I find some random books in my TBR that is for sure!
This is such a great idea!! You definietly need to read Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour! I really like that book.
Yay that is good to hear!! 😊
I enjoyed the Bloodlines series far more than Vampire Academy, but it’s understandable that you would get rid of it considering that you’ve only read the first of VA.
It is just too much of a commitment for me!!
Teeth is kind of a scary title, haha!
It is! Creeps me out!
Ah! You need to read The Darkest Minds! As far as darker dystopians go, it’s one of my favorites! Pacing can be very iffy sometimes but overall it’s great!
I really should do this…😉I really enjoyed Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour. It’s super sweet!
It so refreshing to go through your TBR! I really want to read Amy and Rogers😀
