Do or Die (Reluctant Heroes #1)

I’m still VERY interested in this book!! It’s definitely a keeper!!!

Verdict: Stay

Since You've Been Gone

I don’t know what it is about Morgan Matson that I just can’t pick up one of her books. It’s so strange and something I can’t explain. I’ve heard this book is amazing and a must read….it’s just not the right time for me to read this particular one.

Verdict: Go

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)

Here’s another book I just can’t start. I’ve checked it out numerous times from my library but I never read it. I’ll keep it on my list since a friend just gave me a pb copy.

Verdict: Stay

Starflight (Starflight, #1)

I really enjoyed Melissa’s Alienated series and I ADORE this cover but…..I think I’m going to skip this one. At least for the time being. This is so hard :(( I feel like I’m doing something so horrible by deleting books off my TBR lol!!

Verdict: Go

Rebel Queen

I found this randomly at my library’s book sale years ago…..I still haven’t read it. Not sure I still want to at this point :((

I saw this feature floating around the Blogsphere and just had to jump aboard! This feature was created by Lia at Lost in a Story . The goal of this is to organize your TBR pile. I currently have 730 books on my Goodreads TBR. I don’t know about you, but that’s quite a large number of books to read. Surely I don’t want to read every single book on that list right?!?! Hopefully this will help me cut down my pile and help me make some tough decisions.


The Rules:

  1. Go to your Goodreads To-Read shelf.
  2. Order on ascending date added.
  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  4. Read the synopses of the books
  5. Decide: keep it or should it go?
  6. Repeat every week until the entire list has been filtered.

The Books:

Uglies (Uglies, #1)

Uglies by Scott Westerfield

I’m still really interested in this series. It sounds pretty unique and a friend just gifted me the books. I will at least try book one and see what I think.

Verdict: Stay

Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)

Graceling by Kristin Cashore

I really want to just skip this series but have had several friends tell me it’s AMAZING. I feel I need to give this a chance. It sounds VERY similar to Throne of Glass which is a series I love so fingers crossed that I love this series too.

Verdict: Stay

American Rebel: The Life of Clint Eastwood

American Rebel: The life of Clint Eastwood

I still want to read this one. I’ve heard too many interesting facts about Clint Eastwood to not read about his life at this point.

Verdict: Stay

Second Chance Summer

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

Here’s another book I’m told is a must read. I feel if I were to try any book of Morgan Matson’s, it would be this one.

Verdict: Stay

I've Got Your Number

I’ve got your number by Sophie Kinsella

Sigh, I really don’t think I would enjoy this book. I tried reading another book by this author and wasn’t impressed. Not sure if it was a bad time to try a new author or if she’s just not a good fit for me.

Verdict: Go

The Stats:

Total number of books removed: 1

Books on TBR: 729


1 book down and several more to go I hope!! Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what you thought of them. No spoilers please.
