I’ve actually been looking forward to doing this all week. I went a little TBR happy for a few days there adding everything and anything to my list. Now every time I look at it my OCD starts getting to me. Just like last Monday I organized my Goodreads TBR list in reverse chronological order. I then chose the first ten books and decided to keep or delete it. I obviously skipped the books I decided were keepers last Monday.
Marked (Eternal Guardians, #1) by Elisabeth Naughton
I read one of Naughton’s books a long time ago, it’s called Wait for Me, and it was published in 2011. At the time I was into these romance novels, but this is not that time.
Rapture (The Elfin, #2) by Quinn Loftis and Surrender (The Elfin, #3)
I did like the first in this series, but once again that was many years ago and I don’t think I will continue on with it. The recent reviews for it are bad, and many of my friends on Goodreads also agree that this series went downhill.
Consumed (Firefighters, #1) and The Thief (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #16)
Like I said on my Guilty Pleasures post, I have to be in a certain mood to read J.R. Ward books. I have heard a lot of great things about both of these books, especially The Thief. I do love me some Brotherhood vampires every once in a while.
Glitter (Glitter, #1) and Earthbound (Earthbound, #1) by Aprilynne Pike
These books have really bad reviews from everyone on Goodreads. I remember reading a few of Pike’s books when I was a teenager, but I think I have outgrown them. It’s a shame, because the Glitter cover is so gorgeous.
Storm and Fury (The Harbinger, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I’ve been looking forward to this book which will be out in June. I really liked her Wicked series. I found it really fun and entertaining. Before that I enjoyed the Lux series.
To Best the Boys by Mary Weber
I’ve never read one of Weber’s books, but I have heard great things about this one, and that cover is gorgeous.
The Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves, #1) by Roshani Chokshi
Once again this is another one I’ve heard lots of good things about. Everyone on my Goodreads friends list agrees this is a keeper. Also, look at that cover! I am a sucker for pretty covers.
Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus
I think I added to my TBR list to recommend it to a friend who likes these type of books and then I forgot about it. I have since told said friend and deleted it.
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
I understand I’m way behind the times with this one. Everyone says it’s great. It has just been sitting there on my TBR list and I have struggled to get to it, but I will!
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh
I really liked Flame in the Mist, but I struggled to get through Smoke in the Sun and eventually DNF it. I will attempt to read it again soon. But this one I’m really excited about because I love vampires, also the cover! It’s coming out October 8, 2019.
Once again I do realize I ended up talking about thirteen books and deleted six of them, but only because they were by the same author or part of a series. My OCD is thanking me 🙂
Have you done any deleting in your TBR list lately? Do you avoid looking at it sometimes like I do?
