It’s been a while since I participated with this meme. Click here for the 1st post. Progress: I read Spelled by Betsy Schow and loved it 🙂
This meme was started by Lost in a Story (not sure why the link is odd).
Here are the rules:
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5, or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous, books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
Dishing the Dirt by M.C.Beaton*
This is book 26 in the Agatha Raisin series. That’s right 26! Now I prefer to start a series at the beginning, even when it’s not necessary. Sometimes it’s not possible because there are so many books. And then I forget which I have read. As is the case with these. I don’t think I’ve read this one. But I want to.
Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty*
It’s set in the historic Biltmore Estate…and there’s a ghost. At least I think there’s a ghost. Look at that cover. It’s gorgeous. I’ll have to get this one at the library. Reading the blurb I noticed the accent. Mixed feelings.
A Batter of Life and Death by Ellie Alexander
Book 2 in a series. Murder, baking, and chocolate mixed with a reality TV show. Sign me up.
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
I own this one and have for some time. I’ve never read one of his books. In all honesty- he scares me just a little. I shall move this to my Fall TBR. I will read it.
The Friends of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury
Giveaway. The blurb interests me but not enough to read the book
Sea Lovers: Selected Stories by Valerie Martin
I want to read this for two reasons. 1- the cover is beautiful. 2- the short stories sound fascinating.
Louisiana Saves the Library by Emily Beck Cogburn
It sounds like a quirky story but … not interesting enough and maybe a touch cliche.
*These two were recently spotted on clearence at BAM. I guess I should have bought them.
The Take Away
Goal: Read Nevermore by Febrary 1st! It’s on my Kindle I have no excuse.
I deleted 2 books from my Goodreads list.
Placed 4 books on my IGTIBID List. (I’ll get to it before I die)
I’m undecided on 1 book. I probably will not read it.
That brings my Goodreads TBR shelf to 942 books!
