If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m a person that loves organizing my things.
Well, that’s probably not the one thing you should know, but it’s a thing.
Anyway, because of this, every so often I feel the need to go through my Goodreads account and sort everything out – make sure all my books have ratings (because sometimes I forget to do the starts when I add my review), adjust my favourite shelf, all that kind of stuff.
And one of the things I like to do is go through my “to-read” list and delete any that…well…that don’t belong there any more.
So here are the books that I deleted from my Goodreads TBR!
So I’ll be splitting these books into sections:
The books unhauled because I’ve lost interest
The books unhauled because I don’t want to continue the series
The books unhauled that might actually end up back on the TBR at some point
And to start off…
The books I’ve lost interest in
This is easily the largest section.
Most of the books here are simple on the list because I was interested in them once upon a time, but now…not so much. They’ve been hanging around too long, and I just don’t think I’ll ever actually go out and buy them. Even if I see them in bookstores, there’s always another book that I’m more interested in.
I know the Rainbow Rowell books (attatchments and Carry On) are popular, but I think my reading taste has strayed away from Rainbow Rowell’s sort of contemporary now. Especially now that I’ve gotten into contemporary much more, I’m even pickier than before.
As for the SciFi…I hardly ever actually read SciFi, so it has to be something really REALLY intriguing to pull me into that genre. Those books have been sat around too long.
As for this bottom bunch, I feel like I added most of them because of the “I saw them on a giveaway and they sounded interesting” situation. And that was so long ago, I’ve lost interest (as you probably guessed, since that’s why we’re here).
Books from series I won’t be continuing
And to counteract the last section, this is the smallest of the three.
It’s not very often that I don’t continue a series.
I read The Paper Magician last month, and wasn’t all that impressed with it. It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t hold my interest that well. So I took The Glass Magician and The Master Magician off my to read shelf.
As for The Last Star, this is a bit of a weird one. The first book – The 5th Wave – was one of my favourite books when I read it. Then the second book came along and I was really quite disappointed by it. I enjoyed it, but it was nowhere near as good. And now I feel like it’s been too long since I read them both to remember what I enjoyed about the first book. So I honestly don’t think I’ll end up picking this up. I might be wrong. Maybe if the film adaptations continue, I’ll end up wanting to read the last book before the last film is released? I don’t know. But for now…nah.
Books that may very well end up back on the list
I was actually in such a dilemma when considering these books.
Because I feel like I’ll really enjoy all of them…but they’ve been on my list that long, I’m wondering WHY? Will I ever get round to them?
I’m a HUGE fantasy lover, it’s my favourite genre. Which is why all of these books might end up back on my TBR at some point.
You’ll have to help me decide. If any of these are really good and you would recommend, let me know and I’ll probably re-add them!
Share your thoughts!
Are there any books here that you’re surprised about me unhauling?
Are there any books here I should reconsider? Especially in the last section!?
Have you removed any books from your TBR lately? Which ones? Why?
Or is your TBR mounting dangerously high, even on the internet? (Don’t worry, mine still is)
Let me know in the comments!
