Down the TBR Hole #4
Time for the fourth look through my TBR shelf! Isaw this tag on on Howling Libraries It was originally created by Lost in a Story and seems like a good way to go through some of my TBR on Goodreads and see what is there and what I can get rid of or push me to start reading.
Links will be on the titles for the books Goodreads page. (I am going to do ten for this round of this tag).
It works like this:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 or 15 or 20, 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 time!
Current TBR – 252
Timescape – Gregory Benfrod
I don’t remember where this one came from. I think this may be another book that was my dad’s. It seems like an interesting concept.
A Wrinkle in Time – Madeleine L’Engle
This is one of those books I have always wanted to read. I know I have it on my physical shelf so I will get to it before the summer for sure!
The Tomb of Hercules – Andy McDermott
I bought this one a long time ago. I love this adventure stories where they are looking for some object that is from legends. This still sounds interesting so I will remember it.
Prodigal Son – Dean Koontz
I heard about this a while back. I have also read a lot of mixed reviews about this one. I haven’t found myself ever thinking about it recently so I am just going to take all of them off the list.
Iron Angel – Alan Campell
I have this one on my physical shelves as well. I keep seeing it and the summary is interesting. I like the idea of the angels and demons.
Emperor (Time’s Tapestry #1) – Stephen Baxter
I have zero recollection of this one. Plot seems basic and not all that interesting.
Map of Bones and Black Order – James Rollins
I put these together because they are the same series and same author. I adore James Rollins Sigma Force series. There are the first two. I started the series part way through, for whatever reason. So one day I will go back and read these.
Fear Nothing – Dean Koontz
Again a book I know I own. Though the plot doesn’t sound interesting anymore. I’ll have to take it off my regular shelf too (more room for other books!)
The Last Templar – Raymond Khoury
I believe my mom read this and highly recommended it. I still like the adventure plot line.
The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde
I have meant to read this for ages. I have tried countless times. I just don’t think it is ever going to happen.
Current TBR – 244 (this number doesn’t quite reflect the above numbers because I removed all the Frankenstein series books, I had a few of the series listed)
