GOODREADS CLEAN UP CHALLENGE (3)

A new year brings a good reason to start cleaning up my Goodread's shelves again. As you know, my Goodread's TBR has gotten very much out of hand over the last year. So, I started this new blog series to encourage myself to go through all of the titles on my lists and get rid of the books that no longer interest me. It's been a great tool. This is my third post in the series. Right now, I have over 800 books on my TBR list.





Without further or do... let's get to it:
Starting off from where I left off on my last post... The amount of books on my tbr is never-ending it feels like.



1. Never Never by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher

I am keeping this one only because it's a Colleen Hoover book and I cannot resist. The premise seems kind of weird though. Maybe, one day I will get to it. KEEP













2. One True Thing by Anna Quindlen
I am not in the mood to read another cancer story. Cancer stories hit too close to home for me right now. I am not in the right mindset at all to read them. DELETE














3. All Fall Down by Ally Carter
Yeah, I think I kind of outgrew this book concept. Not looking for an action book anymore. I don't care to read a new book series about a young girl trying to hunt down her mother's killer. Too many other books have this same plot. DELETE











4. Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder
I love a good ghost story and this one looks so good. I completely forgot about this book up until now. Just because someone dies doesn't mean they ever truly leave you. Reading books that explore this message are always some of my favorites. KEEP











5. The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson
Yeah, this book just doesn't seem like my kind of story. I don't even know why it was on my tbr in the first place? DELETE














6. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
I have heard amazing things about this book. Jodi Picoult is an amazing author. This is one of her highest rated books that she has written. I would still like to give this one a try. KEEP













7. The List by Siobhan Vivian
I love the concept of this book. Showing how bullying can affect someone so profoundly while in high school. I think it's a very important topic to write and discuss. Despite the lower ratings, I would still like to give this one a try. KEEP











8. Impossible by Nancy Werlin
A book about a family curse? I am just not in the mood, to be honest, and I need to clean up my shelves a lot. So, I have decided to just get rid of this one. DELETE













9. Cipher by Cindi Madsen
Being able to see the way people die before they do sounds like a super cool premise for a book. Like I said before, I love paranormal books. KEEP













10. Before The Fall by Noah Hawley
I am also a sucker for a good mystery. This one seems pretty interesting. I love it when social media is brought into a thriller too. It always makes for a good story. The suspense in this book seems like it is going to be pretty intense. KEEP















I think that is another pretty good start in going through the titles on all of my book lists. It is always interesting to go through old titles that you used to be interested in. I love seeing how my reading tastes have changed over the years.

  1. You can do it, girl! I cleaned up my tbr list last year and it felt SO good! I think I ended up getting rid of over 200 books I was never going to read 😬
