Tavleen, my loveeeee just participated in this awesome-sauce book tag. And It’s a good one. Though my Goodreads TBR had only 116 books, I really need to sort through it, so that I can add more books and feel totally normal about it.
This was created by Lost in a Story!
- 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 synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
- Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!
Let’s get started 🙂
1984 by George Orwell
No one in their right mind would delete this.
The Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin (#6)
I can imagine the ambitious version of me adding this. But I haven’t yet finished the first book in the series.
Verdict: Keep (A girl can dream 😛 )
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Bookstagram made me add this. I am not entirely sure about this because I am done reading chick-lit and teenage romance.
The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddharth Mukherjee
Well, I am a biotechnologist, which means I am gonna keep this book on this shelf till I drag my ass into reading it
Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri
I have a physical copy of this book on my bookshelf for about a year now. Imma gonna read it. Someday. Soon.
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
As a kid, I really liked Gone Girl. I mean psychopath killer wife. So, I bought this dark, twisted book and I haven’t read it yet. So much for love.
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Never read a Hoover book. Heard words like ‘romantic’ and ‘touching’. This one doesn’t look like my type anymore.
The Obsession by Nora Robers
Nahh. I am gonna read all the books she has ever written. Fangirling here.
End of Watch by Stephen King
It’s the 3rd book in a trilogy, which means I’ll have to read the first 2 books. This can wait. It’s a Goodreads Choice 2016 winner. So maybe I’ll keep it
Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #42)
J.D. Robb is Nora Robert’s pen name and ‘In Death’ series is a mystery series. I haven’t read a single book in that series (yes, you can shoot me).
Those are the 10 books that I screened for this post. My screening skills are more of an emotional attachment issue. See you in my next post.
