TBR Lows and Highs #6

TBR Lows and Highs

TBR Lows and Highs is a weekly meme hosted by Howling Libraries.

Rules:

  • Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
  • Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
  • Find 5-10 (or more, if you feel ambitious!) titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”)
    • ALTERNATIVE OPTION: Find 5+ titles that are at the BOTTOM of your TBR—books you want to read someday, just not right now!
  • Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation
  • Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending
  • List the last 5 (or more!) books you added to your TBR, with a synopsis or your brief summary of why you added it (the “highs”)

The Lows

  1. Virtue by Amanda Hocking – I can’t seem to track down a copy.
  2. The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire, #6) by George R. R. Martin. I just don’t think these are ever going to be published.
  3. A Dream of Spring (A Song of Ice and Fire, #7) by George R. R. Martin
  4. Untitled (A Song of Ice and Fire, #8) by George R. R. Martin
  5. Every Exquisite Thing(Ghosts of the Shadow Market #3) by Cassandra Clare. I am only taking this one off because I am going to wait until the bind-up of all the novellas comes out. 
  6. Thomas’s First Memory of the Flare (The Maze Runner, #2.5) by James Dashner.  I can’t seem to find this anywhere.
  7. The Queen’s Army(The Lunar Chronicles, #1.5) by Marissa Meyer. I believe this is included in Stars Above which I own and have already read.
  8. The Color War by Jodi Picoult. Unable to find.

 

The Highs

I only added one book this week. This probably means I’ll be adding about 50 next week.

The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived Our Holiday Spirits

The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived Our Holiday Spirits by Les Standiford

 

Goodreads TBR count: 827 <– Not bad, it’s getting better!

  1. I can’t blame you for removing the GRRM books. 😦 I’ve DNFed the first book a few times and swore for years that I would finish it and continue the series but I’ve reached the point now where I don’t know if I’ll ever bother unless he magically releases those last few books.
