❤ 4. Read the synopsis of the books.
❤ 5. Time to Decide: keep it or should it go

Here’s the next patch:

The Disappearance of the Girl by Blake Verone

I am not sure how I have this on my TBR list, but it’s not a book I would pick up now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower, #1) by Spehen King

A book from Stephen King. I would love to read all his books, but the next one I will read from him is IT, so this one will go for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik

I actually think I removed this book once, and then re-added it, and now here I am, about to remove it again…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Named by Marianne Curley

It seems intriguing and interesting, but I am trying to get away from these type of fantasy mysteries right now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning

I am usually screaming after paranormal fantasies with a romance theme, but I don’t know why this one doesn’t appeal to me?

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir by Jesophine Leslie

A classic romance that I think I will keep – only because I love the old-fashioned writing styles and romance, how slow it was and not as predictable.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman

Interesting story and synopsis – but I think I will pass on this one, the only reason being I don’t think I will connect on personal level with the characters or the story.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy

Honestly, I am not sure I will enjoy this at all…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Legend (Legend, #1) by Marie Lu

Marie Lu? Yes, please.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

The Iron Tree (The Crowthistle Chronicles, #1) by Cecilia Dart-Thornton

It seems like a great story I would’ve enjoyed a few years ago. Not today.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantI removed 8 books this time. Great progress!

Here’s the next patch:

down the tbr hole romance book blog goodreads netgalley love diary of difference diaryofdifference tomi adeyemi children of blood and bone children of virtue and vengeance isabel sterling these withces don't burn

The Quaker (Duncan McCormack #1) by Liam McIlvanney

I have this as an e-ARC copy. I love the mystery around it, and I think I will enjoy reading it and finding out the entire truth.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

In a Time of Monsters: Travels Through a Middle East in Revolt by Emma Sky

I am excited about this read, as it’s out of my comfort zone, and I am wondering whether I will be bored or intrigued.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Eternal Love by Karimah Colden

The sequel of Karimah Colden’s series. I enjoyed the first book – Eternal Soul, even though I had a few issues here and there. I will read the second book as well, only to find out if it ends better…

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Days of Wonder by Keith Stuart

A beautiful synopsis, of a story I know I will adore and cry. A father-daughter relationship that I can’t help but compare to the relationship I have with my father – which is so unimaginable and precious to me. I can’t wait to read this book.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Singapore Boxer (Ash Carter #3) by Murray Bailey

Even though a third book of a series, it can be read as a standalone. A mystery (which I love) that involves a bit of martial arts (which I also love). I think this is a win-win situation.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Improvement by Joan Silber

I still don’t know what this book is about, but I was said to not read any synopsis and just dive straight into it. I would not usually pick this type of book in the shop, but I do own it and all books I own deserve a chance.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Senlin Ascends (The Books of Babel, #1) by Josiah Bancroft

This book is here today because of the one and only Melanie from MelToTheAny. I have been wanting to read this for a while now, and I still haven’t bought it. I should do that soon.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Taliesin (The Pendragon Cycle #1) by Stephen R. Lawhead

Even though it does seem interesting, I think I will pass on this one for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Sorry by Zoran Drvenkar

It seems like a mystery I might enjoy, but I already own so many mysteries and can’t justify buying more until I get my mystery TBR pile low.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Don’t Turn Out the Lights by Bernard Minier

I think the same applies here…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantI removed 3 books this time. Not great, but still a progress.

Bite Me (Bitten, #1) by C. C. Wood

I like vampire books, but I don’t own this one, and I have far too many to read that I actually own, so I will let this one go.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Cursed (Cursed Magic Series #1) by Casey Odell

I like fantasy, but I don’t think I will like this one. It’s also very hard to decide whether I want to start a whole series of something…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Children of Virtue and Vengeance (Legacy of Orïsha, #2) by Tomi Adeyemi

If you have read my review of Children of Blood and Bone, you will know how much I cherish and love this series. And yes – I cannot wait to get my hands on this one! I mean, would you just look at that cover?

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

The Bronze Horseman (The Bronze Horseman, #1) by Paullina Simons

I love romances – but not sure about this one. I don’t think I am that much into historical romances, to be honest.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling

A story about witches, in the modern world? Please let me read this 🙂
I don’t own it, so I am not too sure, but I think I will still keep it on my TBR list for now.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) by Patrick Rothfuss

I have no clue how or why this ended on my TBR. Has any of you maybe read it? I think I am letting it go…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Die of Death by Kenneth B. Andersen

The second book from the Devil’s Apprentice, a book where a very good boy goes to hell by mistake and becomes the Devil’s assistant. I loved, loved, loved the first book, and will be reading this book next month actually. It’s already on my August TBR and waiting to be read. 

Verdict: KEEP ☑

ANTimatter by David Winship

This book (and many others) were sent to me by the author, and i am planning on reading them all. 

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

could have been verse by David Winship

Same as above – I have a lot of books from David, and will be getting to them soon. I don’t like not reading a book from someone if they have sent me a copy, as you all might already know.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Chroma Crossing Chronicles: Blood Moon: Part 2 by S. Yurvati

I was a bit conflicted with the first book [SEE MY REVIEW] and gave it 3 stars, but I still want to keep reading it to know what happens in the end.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantI removed 4 books this time. Not great, but still a progress.

Lost Library (Lost Library, #1) by Kate Baray

I am not sure about this series to be honest. It’s the first time I am aware of it now, I don’t remember when or why I have put this book on my TBR.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Crush (Crush, #1) by Lacey Weatherford

I am not sure I will keep this. Seems like a great YA Romance, but I don’t own it, so no point in me keeping it if I am not planning to buy it anytime soon.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Just the Essentials by Shari L. Tapscott

Again, a YA Romance, and to be honest, this one reminds me of The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. Have you read it?

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow, #1) by Rachel Morgan

I am pretty sure I own this on my Kindle – but not sure I will read it in the near future. I will remove it…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

A Demon’s Promise (Soul Savers, #1) by Kristie Cook

Not sure how or why I have it on my TBR list – but it’s been there long enough. It’s time for this book to go away, because I don’t think I will ever read it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Forbidden (Arotas Trilogy, #1) by Amy Miles

Okay, it seems I have added all of these books in one day, while I was in a YA Romance mood.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

See Me (Zombie Love, #1) by Susan Halter

A YA Zombie Romance – talking a bit of diversity here. Not sure about this one…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Chased by Fire (The Cloud Warrior Saga, #1) by S.K. Holmberg

Not this time…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Love Undercover by Ellie Spark

The only reason I am keeping this one is because I already own it on my Kindle. It also happens to be a short read as well.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Parlez-Vous Murder?(Stranded in Provence #1) by Susan Kiernan – Lewis

I am not usually the type for chick-lit, but I will keep this one, probably only because of its title 🙂

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantI removed 8 books this time. It seems that I am getting better at recycling. This is how my TBR list looks like now.

Art of Kissing From Head to Toe – How to Kiss by Nikki Leigh

I have added this on my TBR back in 2013, so I think that explains everything…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

How He Lied to Her Husband by George Bernard Shaw

There is not even a synopsis on Goodreads, but let’s be honest – do you even need one?

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Bare Necessities by John David Harding

I am not sure about this one, but I know I have it on my Kindle. Do I keep it – probably not…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Intermediate Spanish Short Stories: 10 Captivating Short Stories to Learn Spanish & Grow Your Vocabulary the Fun Way! (Intermediate Spanish Stories Book 1) by Lingo Mastery

If you want to read a bit of Spanish – pick this one up. I added it at the time I was learning Spanish, but never got to it – I think the stories will be plain, so I will remove it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Hearts Under Fire by Antonie Scotto di Carlo

Again – I don’t think I will even enjoy this one…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Death Series: Volume One (Death, #1-3) by Tamara Rose Blodgett

This might be an interesting read – so I will keep it for now.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Magno Girl and the Beast of Brooklyn by Joe Canzano

I got this book because I read Suzy Spitfire Kills Everybody by Joe Canzano, and I did enjoy that one. Magno Girl was free at the time on Kindle, and I thought – why not.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Graveyard Shift (Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc., #1) by Angela Roquet

I love the synopsis and I think it seems promising.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Branding Her – Bundle 1 (E01 to E06) by Alex B. Porter

A lesbian romance that doesn’t seem to deliver anything else but steamy erotica? I might pass.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Blank Space: A story in concrete poetry for striving readers by Beth Bacon

I believe that this book is deep – I think I might enjoy it – maybe. I will keep it.

Verdict: KEEP ☑
