Culling the TBR Pile 14

A blogger called Lia from Lost in a Story created a kind of meme thingy called Down the TBR Hole that aims to cut your TBR pile of the books you no longer want to read and remind yourself of the ones you do want to read.

The process:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5-10 (or more if youre feeling adventurous) books.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Culling the TBR Pile This Week:

The Half Life of Molly Pierce

The Half Life of Molly Pierce by Katrina Leno

I love this title, but since it’s not easily accessible to me and I know what the great secret is, I’m not interested in reading this. Some friends reported that it was written in a really disjointed way, and that doesn’t interest me. I want beautiful prose. This one is getting culled.

Death Sworn (Death Sworn, #1)

Death Sworn by Leah Cypress

I kinda still want to give this one a go. It has mostly kinda positive reviews except from a couple of my friends who didn’t find it very engaging, but this one will stay.

My Last Kiss

My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal

Due to the bad reviews from some trusted friends I’m going to cull this.

Camelot Burning (Metal & Lace, #1)

Camelot Burning by Kathryn Rose

This one is going too, nice cover but I’m not really into steampunk.

The Last Time We Say Goodbye

The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

I initially added this because HELLO CYNTHIA HAND but I’m really not into reading about suicide especially since I’ve had to deal with a suicidal loved one and I just don’t think I want to relive any of that. This one is getting culled.
