down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

Hello guys! Happy Saturday!

This week I have some various genres and interesting titles. Let’s see how I’ve done.

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:

#23

Unwrapping Her Perfect Match (London Legends, #3.5) by Kat Latham

Seems like a cute Christmas read, but it’s #3.5 in a series. I’d rather start from book #1.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Jay Walking (Pastime Pursuits #2) by Tracy Krimmer

A second book in a series again. I have to let it go.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Afraid of Her Shadow (Rom-Com on the Edge #3) by Carol Maloney Scott

A third book in a series – why do I even put these on my shelves if I haven’t read the first books?

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Pierced (Lucian & Lia, #1) by Sydney Landon

Romance and erotica. Not now. Not now…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Diamonds (All that Glitters, #1) by K.A. Linde

This seems like a Fifty Shades Of Gray type of thing. And you know what? I’ll keep it!

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

The Billionaire’s Need by Crystal Caswell

Contemporary Romance – this might not be the right genre for me right now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Fluent in French: The most complete study guide to learn French by Frederic Bibard

I was going to read this to improve my French, but there are so many apps out there, and the reviews for this book say it’s mostly motivational.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Love Me Tonight by Kelly Jamieson

Book #2.5, so no explanation needed.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Matilda by Roald Dahl

A British classic, a book that my friends keep telling me it’s a must read.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

J.R.R. Tolkien: A Life Inspired by Wyatt North

I love the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, but the reviews on this biography seem to be quite not what I would expect to read, so I am passing on this one for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantWe only kept 2 books and removed 8 this time. My TBR is shrinking, and I love it!

Hello guys! Happy Saturday!

Amazon Freebie Batch again – I have a long list of those. This batch though, seems to be quite close to my heart, as these are some of the very first books I downloaded on my Kindle and never got to them, so I will probably do very badly.

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

It’s only 30 pages worth of laughs, so why not keep it, right?

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

A Collection of Ghost Stories and Paranormal Short Stories(Creepy #1) by Jeff Bennington

I was actually planning to read this for Halloween last year, but never got to it. I will try to read it this year. I really enjoy creepy horror stories, especially short ones.

Perfect Crime by Jack Erickson

A short story, with a mixed set of reviews on Goodreads. I am a bit unsure on this one, but I will only keep it because it’s really short.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

A fantasy story that is written to introduce logic to kids. I have always wanted to read this, and I should get to it soon.

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

It’s Love, Dude (Jardin Bay, #1) by Jenny Schwartz

I would have loved this when I downloaded it, years ago. But now I am not sure if I will enjoy this. 

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, Complete by Leonardo da Vinci

I own the Kindle version of this book, and I love Leonardo da Vinci. I love reading about his life and work. My friends have advised me to get the paperback copy though, so I can see his mirror writings and drawings as well. I think I’ll do that. 

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

Last Train Home (Home, #1) by Megan Nugen Isbell

Again, a romance that I am not sure I’ll enjoy right now. But hey, who knows, maybe my hunger for romance will come back and I will get back to this book. For now, it goes.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Saving Grace (Katie 1): A What Doesn’t Kill You Romantic Mystery by Pamela Fagan Hutchins

This one will have to go as well.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Lose Weight Fast by Jyothi Shenoy

This is not something I would dive in, but it might be helpful to know.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Neighbor 1-3 [Box Set] by Abby Weeks

Romance and erotica, and a neighbour involved. I might actually keep this.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantI am only removing 3 books from my TBR this time. We have slowed down this week, but hopefully next week we’ll make up for it.
