I saw the most AMAZING post from LOST IN A STORY with the most AMAZING idea to help cut down my ridiculously large TBR! Thank you so much for creating this post!!
THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: (straight from original post)
- 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?
Every week I will be going through 10 books on my Goodreads TBR and purging as many as I feel comfortable with. Most likely these posts will go up on a Sunday. Currently I have 214 to go through and this number is always being added to, so hopefully this will help a lot. Here are my next ten books!
A Vow So Bold and Deadly by Brigid Kemmerer
I am so excited for this one!!
The Burning by Laura Bates
Yes! This recently arrived so I’m excited to get around to it!
Inferno by Catherine Doyle
Yep! I’m curious to continue this series at some point since I loved the first one!
The Switch by Beth O’Leary
Yes!! This sounds super cute and I’ve only heard good things!
F.O.X.E.S. by M.A. Bennett
I’m so excited for this!!
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
This is definitely going to take me a while because it’s so big and intimidating – but I would love to take on this trilogy one day!
Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell
The lovely Katherine has raved so much about this that I’m DYING to read it!
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Yes, definitely keeping this!! I’ve heard so many great things about this series that I’ll have serious FOMO if I don’t read it!
Eight Pieces of Silva by Patrice Lawrence
Patrice Lawrence is such a fantastic writer so I can’t wait until this is released!
Love, Creekwood by Becky Albertalli
I loved Simon Vs, so I genuinely can’t wait to return to his world!
So again, I got rid of zero books on my TBR. My TBR is now resting the same at 214 books. But I’ve also had a quick look through the rest of my TBR and realised that all of the books are ones that I want to read, so I’ve finally reached the end of this series! Kind of sad, but it’s definitely been a long time coming and I’m so glad of the purge of my TBR. The very first post I started with 336 books and now I’m finishing at 214! That’s what I call progress 😉
