I think it’s high time I take a gander at my TBR shelf. It’s looking a little crowded again!
Down the TBR Hole is a weekly book meme created by the wonderful Lia @ Lost in a Story that attempts to organize our ridiculously long Goodreads TBR list by choosing either to keep or eliminate the books we’ve kept on there for YEARS.
Trigger Warning | Neil Gaiman
I believe this was my attempt at adding variety to my reading list. Even though I’m really interested in reading Neil Gaiman’s works, I’m not sure this is the best place to start. I know Gaiman has more well-known works and I think it would be best if I read a novel of his rather than an anthology of short stories. Also, I’m more interested in reading American Gods, as I’ve heard many great things about it. I think for now, I can hold off on this one. The judgement:
Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels, #8) | Ilona Andrews
I’m not sure where this one came from. I mean, it’s the EIGTH book in a series I have never read. While I’m still interested in the concept of shape-shifters, and there are pretty good reviews for this particular book, I may never get around to reading this series. There’s just too many good books I need to catch up on. The judgement:
The Aeronaut’s Windlass (The Cinder Spires, #1) | Jim Butcher
I’ve read one book by Jim Butcher and really enjoyed it. But I think it was a different series of his. The Dresden Files, I think it was called. I’d prefer to continue on with that series instead of starting this one. The premise to this one sounds intriguing, but I’d rather start what I finished a year ago. The judgement:
The Buried Giant | Kazuo Ishiguro
I put this one on my list because T.C. Boyle recommended it to me after reading an excerpt from my novel. And while I’m grateful to T.C. for putting this book forth, I’m not sure it’s something I’d ever get around to reading. I know there are quite a few things about this book, but the mixed reviews have effectively scared me away from trying it out. The judgement:
Confess| Colleen Hoover
I’ve been meaning to read something by Colleen Hoover for a while now and many people have recommended Ugly Love to me. I plan on reading that one first but I also plan on reading this one. The reviews are fairly positive and the premise has my attention. The judgement:
What’d you think of my choices? Do you know any of the books I listed? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for stopping by! See ya soon ❤
