Being lazy about doing such blog posts is nothing new for me. But every once in a while, I try to kick off the laziness by realising how fun such posts can be. Now that I’ve decided to do one, I’m very excited for me. When I was sorting through my goodreads TBR, I found that there are so many good books I’ve totally forgotten about. I feel great now, knowing that great books await in my TBR for me.
‘Down through the TBR hole is created by Lost in a story
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
- Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!
My books are (I’m not sure they are in any order at all):
1. IT by Stephen king
I mean, c’mon! How can I not read it? This year I was so hard on myself for completing the goodreads challenge that I didn’t pick up big books in the second half of the year. But next year, I’ll reduce the number of books to read so that I can pick up big books and classics.
2. Where the red fern grows
Seems like I’ve had this book on my TBR shelf forever. I don’t think I’m going to read it in near future. Well, I may decide to pick it up 30 years later, but I’ll discard the thought of reading it for now!
4. Here be dragons
5. Keys to success
Self-help books are something I don’t read much: I believe it is all so subjective that one may even get confused. I think even I can write a self-help book myself. But I’ll keep it as I want to know what the fuss is about.
6. The guide
Mr, Narayan, I’ll get to you real soon!!
7. The secret history
There’s no point discarding such a brilliant novel. It’s in my priority list of books.
8. The locket
Again, great reviews and I couldn’t bring myself to discard it.
9. You can win
Another self-help book! A good friend of mine recommended it and I want to know why it is a bestseller.
10. Mrs. Dalloway
One of my most anticipated reads in classics. I won’t let it go, no matter what.
11. The heart is a lonely hunter
Again, great reviews. So I decided to Keep it. Lol, I wasn’t even aware such a book exists.
12. The book Thief
13. The second sex
14. The princess bride
Interesting synoposis and great reviews. And it’s staying in my TBR!!
15. The mist
Well, there are better SK books. So, I’ll remove it for now.
Even though I could discard only 2 out of 15 books, I’m so happy to go through them. I feel like I’ve discovered 13 Amazing books and I can’t wait to read them.
P.S: I’ve college exams next month and it’s all so boring. I won’t be able to read much. I feel exams waste so much of my time. I mean, I can read 20 books in this time and all I get to do is study for exams. Anything to cheer me up?
