Another Week, Another Cleanse! This weeks Book Tag post is a TBR clean up!
The book tag was originally created by Lia, formerly @ Lost in a Story.
For those of you who haven’t taken a look or participated, here’s the breakdown:
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
This is a process that we (I) will be doing every week meaning that we (I) have to keep track of where we (I) ended and where we (I) will move forward from. From what I’ve seen many book bloggers have chosen their own intervals but many have done it in intervals of 5. For example Week 1 we (I) will do book/s 1-5 on the TBR list. Then Week 2 will be 6-10 and so on.
This will continue until the whole TBR list is filtered through, leaving only the books you (I) actually plan to read.
1. For the Love of a Vampire by Michelle Leighton
I don’t remember adding this to my TBR list….but reading the excerpt again, It was definitely during my Vampire craze. Honestly, I don’t see myself reading it.
2. Defiance by C.J. Redwine
Defiance is a book I’ve kept in mind for a very long time. There is something about it that kept me thinking that maybe one day I would get to it. However, that isn’t the case. My tastes are far different from they once were with YA novels. I know I won’t be reading it.
3. Across The Universe by Beth Revis
I absolutely love the cover of this book. I know for a fact that I added it to my TBR because of it. I’m not really sold with the excerpt so even my love for the cover wont make me keep it.
4. Timeless by Alexandra Monir
The concept of time traveling interests me but I don’t see myself picking this up anytime soon.
5. Dark Mirror by M.J Putney
I’m a big fan of historical fiction and magic, especially when I see books that are both. I’ll definitely be giving this one a shot. 🙂
Overall Verdict: 1/5 books will be kept
How many books did you end up keeping from your TBR cleanup? Discarded? Did you re-discover any?
