Down the TBR Hole #13

I know I haven’t posted much lately. I have been busy but wanted to get another post up before my monthly wrap up. Its been about a month since I did one of these so I thought I’d do another round going through my TBR shelf.

Rules:

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 – 261

The Invisible Gorilla and Other Ways Intuitions Deceive Us – Christopher Chabris , Daniel Simons – I love the invisible gorilla experiment, if you don’t know what that is, look it up on Youtube. I love learning more about the weird ways our brains works and how it can deceive us.
Decision: Keep

The Final Empire – Mistborn #1 – Brandon Sanderson – I have heard great things about this series. I just haven’t been able to dive into a dense series yet especially one that I don’t believe is finished. I will get to it eventually but it may be a little while.
Decision: Keep

The Summer that Melted Everything – Tiffany McDaniel – A book about someone being the devil? Sounds interesting to meet.
Decision: Keep

Smoke – Dan Vyleta – I like the idea of the smoke designating who is good and bad but the rest of it doesn’t sound all that interesting. Might come back to it one day but right now it doesn’t spark my interest.
Decision: Remove

A World Apart – David M. Brown – Not sure why I added this one. It sounds alright but not something I would enjoy.
Decision: Remove

The Corner of 1700 Hamilton – Vania Rheault – I think this is a short story collection? Again I have no memory of this one.
Decision: Remove

Pepper Pike – Les Roberts- I added this one because it is set in Cleveland, my hometown. Though I would like to see how Cleveland is portrayed I don’t see myself reading this anytime soon.
Decision: Remove

Don of the Dead – Casey Daniels – Love the idea of having to talk with ghosts to find their murders, kind of like Ghost Whisperer.
Decision: Keep

They Died Crawling: And Other Tales of Cleveland Woe; True Stories of the Foulest Crimes, and Worst Disasters in Cleveland History – John Stark Bellamy II – I was in a Cleveland centered roll at this point. Again sounds interesting but probably won’t get to it anytime soon.
Decision: Remove

The Devourers – Indra Das – Again no idea why I added this. It sounds alright but not really something I usually read.
Decision: Remove

Keep – 4
Remove – 5
Total TBR – 256
