- 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?
The fact that I will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR.
The Next Best Thing By Jennifer Weiner
This is a book that seems right up my alley. I studied Media Studies in school. I always thought it would be amazing to work for a movie/television company. I feel I need to give this book a chance. Plus I have a thing for books with pools on the cover.
Best Friends Forever By Jennifer Weiner
This book sounds really interesting. I really want it to be a thriller/mystery but it’s fiction. I feel like I got to give this a chance.
Then Came You By Jennifer Weiner
I am on a Jennifer Weiner roll right now. There is one more book in this Down the TBR Hole. Sadly this one doesn’t interest me as much as the other two.
Fly Away Home By Jennifer Weiner
This is another Jennifer Weiner book I don’t really have much interest in reading. Maybe I’ll get to these if I find I really enjoyed the other books.
11/22/63 By Stephen King
This book has such an interesting concept and I really want to check it out. I’m just so overwhelmed by the number of pages. I know at some point I’ll get to this. I’m trying to read bigger books.
Can You Keep a Secret? By Sophie Kinsella
Reading the reviews for this book it seems too cute to pass. I have been wanting to read a Sophie Kinsella book for a while now. Maybe this will be my first read of hers.
The Descendants By Kaui Hart Hemmings
This is a book I kept on my list because I wanted to watch the movie. I don’t see myself watching this anytime soon. Maybe I’ll add it back to my list after I watch the movie.
God Save the Queen By Kate Locke
My boyfriend got the audiobook. He really enjoyed it. I want to check it out at some point.
Wolf in White Van By John Darnielle
I tried reading this book when I first got it. I couldn’t get into it at first. I put it on my list in hopes to read it again. I think I’m going to pass on this one.
Diary By Chuck Palahniuk
In my previous posts I’ve mentioned I own a lot of Chuck’s books. I don’t want to get rid of this book from my list.
Do you guys think I made the right choice with the books I kept and got rid of? I got rid of 4 books this week. I haven’t been getting rid of too many books lately. Nice to see me making some progress.
