Hi friends! I know it’s been forever since I last did one of these but when your memory fails there’s not much you can do*. BUT I’m back now!
*hush I know phone reminders exist and lists in general
- Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
- Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
- Find 5-10 (or more, if you feel ambitious!) titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”)
- Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation of why you removed it
- Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending
- List the last 5 (or more!) books you added to your TBR, with a synopsis or your brief summary of why you added it (the “highs”)
All the Walls of Belfast by Sarah Carlson | I know NOTHING about this time in history. Like, right now if you ask me what the Troubles are I will probably be inclined to say that it’s something Willy Wonka made up to rid the earth of bratty kids. But if I do read this I will probably learn while being swept away by a (hopefully) cute romance.
The Starless Sea by Erin Mogenstern | A new book from the author of The Night Circus that actually has a real publication date! Tbh I though we were getting a book called The Owl King at some point but whatever I like this title and synopsis* better. Libraries and gorgeous writing are my JAM.
*yes I did just spell synopsis so bad it auto-corrected to “poppinwings”. I’m not exaggerating.
Stolen by Lucy Christopher | Okay, is it just me or are there few decent YA mystery/thriller books??? I’m always looking for new ones that aren’t obsessed with romance. Anyway, I heard about this one from Naya @ Naya Reads and Smiles and I’m excited for this!
Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend | I JUST read the first one and really enjoyed it! So obviously I need more magic middle-grade in my life???
Coral by Sara Ella | A Little Mermaid retelling that seems to have great female friendships???And a cool new twist??? Even though I haven’t really read the summary properly??? I DON’T EVEN KNOW.
Love, Life, and The List by Kasie West | What kind of mood was I in when I thought that moody teenage contemporary romance was my thing??? I’m officially fixing this mess. Starting now.
Here, There, Everywhere by Julia Durango and Tyler Terrones | This still sounds good but I mean, let’s be real: I don’t do contemporary usually.
Prince in Disguise by Stephanie Kate Strohm | I don’t know anything about this book. Nothing.
The Book Jumper by Mechthild Gläser | Again, this still sounds good but I honestly doubt I’ll get to it soon. As in the next five years.
The Truth Beneath the Lies | This seems to be about running from dead-beat jobs and rules. I don’t like running.
So that’s it! Tell me if I should prioritize any of these!
