Down The TBR Hole #1

First, credit where credit is due: Natalie The Biblioholic and Lost In The Story have done this. With a "Want-To-Read" list of 282 books, I'm thinking I may benefit from this effort. Keeping it honest, today's impulsivity may cause me to put them back on the list at a later date.

Hey, I'm a bookaholic and admit that.

Here's how it works:
I will say - don't use the GR app. You can get to the desktop version from Safari, Bing or Chrome. It works easier to navigate.

  • Go to your Goodreads Want-To-Read Shelf
  • Order the list ascending date added
  • Take a deep breath
  • Chose the first 5 to 10 books to determine their fate
  • Decide: Keep or Banish
Ready Set...GO! 

Love Tussles and Takedowns by Violet Duke
Rating Avg: 4.91
Publication Date: June 13, 2014

I have read the others in the series. And since I usually say leave no book behind, I'll keep it!

Verdict: Keep

Find Me by Laurelin Paige
Rating Avg: 4.24
Publication Date: August 15, 2015

I have Find Me but not Free Me. Okay, appears to be an impulse click. So maybe when I add Free Me this book will return. For now...

Verdict: Banish

Power Players by Cassia Leo and Kaia Stone
Rating Avg: 3.87
Publication Date: October 30, 2014
Amazon: No Longer Available

Well, series is a commitment. And I'm already in several committed relationships at the moment. Especially with my BDB re-read. It is also not good this is no longer available.

Verdict: Banish

Stud Unleashed: Barry by Kylie Gilmore
Rating Avg: 3.51
Publication Date: February 24, 2015

Sometimes I need a giggle read. More often than not, I re-read reliables. I think I should dig deep in my TBR this month and try something new.

Verdict: Keep

Stud Unleashed: The Prequel by Kylie Gilmore Rating Avg: 3.6
Publication Date: February 15, 2015
Amazon: No Longer Available

Apparently I need to read this first before Barry. So.. that's that.

Verdict: Keep

Okay this was fun! Do you agree or disagree with any of my verdicts? 
Let's see how I do and tune in next month to work on the next five.

I love that you're taking the challenge. I haven't seen some of these books and I found a couple to add to my own never-ending TBR! I look forward to your next post!! xoxo
