Hello, my fellow readers!

My 6th list of the Down The TBR Edition. This time, there are some interesting books, and variety of genres – hope you enjoy!

How it works:

❤ 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 synopsis of the books.
❤ Decide: keep it or should it go

Here’s the next patch:

Which one of these have I kept, and which one have I removed?

French Kissing by Lynne Shelby

I remember adding this book back in the days when all I was reading was romance. Right not, I can’t see myself reading this book.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Go Ask Alice by Beatrice Sparks

A book I can’t miss. A horror thriller I have been wanting to get my hands on for ages!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Moby-Dick or, The Whale by Herman Melville

A classic – one I have actually been wanting to read for so long!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman

A sweet story, one I have always wanted to read.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Yesterday by Felicia Yap

After reading The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, I believe that this book will grip me with the same strength

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Emma by Jane Austen

Emma is a classic I have on my shelves. I started reading it once, and then suddenly stopped, for some reason. I need to pick it up again.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Le Morte d’Arthur by Thomas Malory

I have always been so curious about Arthur and Merlin, and the history of the knights. And this book captures it all. I have it on my shelves and need to pick it up again soon.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

It by Stephen King

I have seen the movie, and I have just finished reading Carrie, the first ever book by Stephen King that I’ve read. I can’t wait to dive into this one.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Origin (Robert Langdon Book 5) by Dan Brown

Dan Brown is one of my favourite authors. I got this book when it was published. I have to read it soon!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Again, one of those books that you need to read, and always are curious about. I think I will really enjoy this one!

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Oh dear. I only am removing one this time. My TBR is not happy.

Let me know if you have read any of these, and if you want me to keep or remove any of these books from my list! I look forward to see what you think!

    HI Ivana,
    I tried to like this posting on your website and they asked me to login to WordPress? What’s that about? My website is on wordpress but I doubt if they were looking for that login. Anyway, I hope you get this and consider me liking your TBR6 accounting. I have read some of those books but I’d never say read this or that. MY opinions of those books I’ve read are: MOby Dick – Truly a Classic. Read it twice.; It – One of my favorite of King’s (All time favorite most scary book of his was Salem’s Lot, It was a close second); Origin – I did not like as I felt all of his books were plotted the same now, only the country and the girl changed, it was him versus the church (they always were painted to look that way but the church is always proven innocent. Not a bad easy read if they weren’t so darn long.; I have Emma but have not read any of Austen’s books. It’s getting close to that time. I also have a book entitled French Kissing but by a British author, Catherine Sanderson. I have not read it. Not a Neil Gamon fan, don’t know the others.
    Currently reading one of the Ringworld books which is strongly pulling me back towards Classic SciFi. It’s been 30+ years since I read the likes of Ringworld, Foundation and Dune. Three of my all time favorites. All three authors knew how to build a world.
    Mike

      Hi Mike – thank you you the amazing feedback.

      I don’t know why the logging issue happened – it must be a wordpress setting.

      I have actually read French Kissing by Catherine Sanderson – it was a delightful read, a wonderful setting in France. I loved it. Another book similar to this is The Secret Paris Cinema Club by Nicolas Barreau – also set in France and amazing!

      I hope I will get to all these books soon. It’s a nice thing when doing this exercise, that I realise I need to read some books I have been wanting to for a while.

    It is a good book and Dan Brown is just not a good writer. His books are fast-paced but repetitive.

      Yes, I agree. I have enjoyed Dan Brown a lot, and have read a lot of books, but after a while, it does become one and the same.

    I remember reading Moby Dick in High School – you have to read that at least once

    The only one of your list I read myself is IT by Stephen King. It’s a monstrous book though. That size! I actually ended up buying the ebook because it was torture to keep holding the physical one? Felt like I was barely making any progress since I kept putting it down to rest my arms.
    There are some harsh themes / events in that book though. Some mental prep might be needed if there are things you have a harder time dealing with in books. 🙂

      I have seen the movie, and it was amazing, and I was told the book is huge, but it’s a bit of a challenge now 🙂

    I’ve never heard of this but I like it! Truthfully I need to cull my “currently reading” list, but that’s a different story. I’ve also never read any of these, except maybe Moby Dick…? As for Dan Brown, at least it’s a fast read and will come off the TBR shelf fast!

    Your 6th list of the Down The TBR Edition is a cool roundup and a testimony to the importance of writing a good synopsis.
