For the second time, I decided that I’d venture into my Goodreads TBR to see what wonders lay there waiting for me to sort through. Created by Lia over at Lost in a Story, here’s what needs to be done…
- Go to your to-read shelf on Goodreads
- Order as ascending date added
- Take the first five or ten books
- Read the synopsis of each
- Decide: should I keep it or should it go?
Marianne Dreams by Catherine Storr
I remember adding this book several years ago when in a moment I had a recollection of reading a book about a girl was transported into her own illustrations during her dreams. It was at some point in middle school that I read this, and I spent so long trying to find the title of it because I knew how much I’d enjoyed it when I was just beginning to fall in love with reading. I doubt that I will be re-reading this book any time soon, but you can bet that because of how long it took me to find, it will be staying on my TBR.
Alone on a Wide Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo
This is another one that I read during middle school and absolutely adored (clearly Bex of the past was having a very nostalgic day when she added all of these). From what I remember of this book, there were lots of maps, lots of sailing and lots of powerful messages. I’d definitely like to pick this up again.
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
How. Many. Times. Have. I. Said. I. Need. To. Read. This. Book.? On pretty much every post I’ve ever made about the books I need to get to, this book has featured. I love the premise of it and I adore the cover – 2018 is the year that I will finally read it!
The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2) by Rick Yancey
I’m not too sure why this book is on here. I did not enjoy The Fifth Wave whatsoever, but I think some part of me thought that if I continued giving the series a shot it might get better. Three and a half years after adding the sequel, and I still have absolutely no desire or intention of reading it.
John Winchester’s Journal by Alex Irvine
It seems like I was destined to never have a Supernatural-free blog. A few years ago, I was absolutely obsessed with the show after having watched all eight-or-so seasons that were out at that point within the space of a few months. Fast-forward to the present, and I still love the show, but I’m just not at the point where almost my whole life revolves around it anymore. Due to that, I don’t think I’ll ever read this entire journal cover to cover, but I’ll probably have a flick through the illustrations every now and then.
And slowly, very slowly, the TBR list begins to shrink… I definitely plan on doing these posts every so often, and look forward to seeing a manageable list of books that I want to read eventually emerge (if that’s ever possible!)
