I posted part one to this series a couple months ago, and I have been so distracted by other things that I haven’t continued on with it. My Goodreads TBR list continues to be much too long, so I am happy to remove a few more books I am no longer interested in. Of course, I could be convinced to leave them on if you think any of these are worth reading!
I started this journey with over 1000 books on my Goodreads TBR, so I will be curious to see how low I can get that number. The thing is, I am constantly adding new titles to that list! It will just be nice to know that every book on that shelf is one I actually want to read.
Leviathan sounds interesting but it is over ten years old at this point and I have probably had it on my TBR for that long. I have had all of Scott Westerfeld’s books on my TBR at some point, but I have never actually read anything by him.
The premise of The Book Jumper intrigues me, but I have read so many mixed reviews. Something about it reminds me of the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, which is a series I love and I will just stick with that one.
I have discovered that I am very particular about the kind of fantasy I enjoy, so I just do not think that The Winner’s Curse would work for me.
I love books set in Italy, but contemporary YA romance isn’t really my thing anymore, so that is why I removed Hot Italian Summer from my list.
Roar got a lot of buzz when it first came out, but I do not see anyone talk about it anymore. I have so much YA fantasy on my list that this one is not a priority for me.
I loved The Martian and I am excited for Andy Weir’s new book to come out next year, but I am going to pass on Artemis. There are too many mixed reviews and I just not compelled to pick it up.
I read the first book in the DC Icon series and thought it was fun, but I am just not invested enough in the DC universe to want to continue on with it.
Phantom Limbs is one I could probably be persuaded to keep on my list. I honestly don’t know much about it!
I was extremely interested in Red Clocks when it first came out, but I have had a few friends tell me it is not worth reading.
Emergency Contact sounds like a sweet read, but it takes a lot for me to be interesting in a YA romance!
I tried to read Toil & Trouble and I just was not connecting with any of the stories. I loved the idea of the collection, but it wasn’t working for me.
There are so many of these historical fiction novels that have these same covers of women’s backs! The Atomic City Girls has mixed reviews and I have read so much WWII historical fiction at this point that I am more selective about the ones I read.
Let me know your thoughts on these books and whether or not I made a mistake removing them from my TBR!
