Conquer Your TBR #4

As of this post, I have 623 Books I Want To Read on goodreads.com! Now it’s time to be ruthless and figure out why 🤷‍♀️ I put it on the list and if I still want to read it. 🤔

Lia at Lost In A Story started this challenge back in 2016! If you want to play along here are the rules:

• Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf

• Sort by date added/reverse order

• Take the first 5 (or 10) books

• Read the synopsis of the books

• Decide to keep it ✅ or let it go 🚫


Date Added: April 2015

Thoughts: Lots of 4/5 star reviews. “Not sappy”, “special bond between humans and their dogs”. Don’t read if you’ve recently lost a pet.

Verdict: Keep ✅

Date Added: April 2015

Thoughts: I’m being ruthless. Sorry Jen. Open to arguments.

Verdict: Remove 🚫

Date Added: April 2015

Thoughts: Definitely keeping this one, as it’s part of the series!

Verdict: Keep ✅

Date Added: August 2015

Thoughts: Have I really never read this? I absolutely adored another book of hers, The Language of Flowers.

Verdict: Keep ✅

Date Added: August 2015

Thoughts: I enjoyed The Rosie Project and would be willing to read the sequel.

Verdict: Keep ✅

Date Added: August 2015

Thoughts: This one sounds familiar- I’m pretty sure I picked it up at the library and DNF.

Verdict: Remove 🚫

Date Added: August 2015

Thoughts: 1950s journalist makes good in male dominated industry. While I love well researched historical fiction, I’m not sure it’s for me. Arguments?

Verdict: Remove 🚫

Date Added: August 2015

Thoughts: The cover is working against this book. The foreword by Pat Conroy plus the reviews of the lyrical prose and low country descriptions keep this one on the list.

Verdict: Keep ✅

Date Added: August 2018

Thoughts: This title sounds interesting if you want to read about a character who has Aspergers or someone fascinated with death.

Verdict: Remove 🚫

Date Added: August 2018

Thoughts: This one looks very cute as the main characters keep meeting over and over, ala Harry and Sally?

Verdict: Keep ✅


I’m curious to know if you disagree with any of my choices?

Or agree?

Any of these I should give a second chance to?
