TBR Lows and Highs #15

TBR Lows and Highs


  • 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 – Books to be Purged

  1. Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6) by Sarah J. Maas  –  This is only temporary, I will readd it when I get closer to reading it.
  2. The Prince (A Wicked Trilogy, #3.5; 1001 Dark Nights, #85) by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
  3. Neverwake (Dreamfall #2) by Amy Plum. I will decide whether to re-add this one after I read book #1.
  4. Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda. I read a different biography on Alexander Hamilton. I don’t know that I will pick up another.
  5. When Day Breaks (KGI, #9) by Maya Banks. I haven’t read books 1-8, so I don’t need this one on my TBR.
