Down the TBR Hole #3

Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Yep! It’s that time again! Last week, my TBR list was at 768 books after completing this however I did a bit of cleaning on it (I had some duplicates on it that I removed) I’m now at just 763 which means I only need to remove three books this week to keep on track for my target of reducing it by five every week!

So, time for the books!


 

77449

Pretty sure I just added this based on the name. It’s a historical fiction novel set in Wales however it’s super long and I have no urge to read it at all.

Verdict: REMOVE

73906

So this is another Arthurian book that I added during my Arthurian phase and although it’s meant to be very good, I just don’t really have any urge to read it either. Maybe once I start reading Arthurian books again I’ll want to read more, but until then there’s no point leaving it on my list.

Verdict: REMOVE

7144

It’s a classic and I really enjoy Russian literature so this is definitely staying. I think the only reason it’s been on my TBR for so long is that I haven’t got around to buying it yet (as I know getting a good translation is super important)

Verdict: KEEP

560089

Another Arthurian one, although this is a medieval classic and so I’m torn on whether to get rid of this or not. As I’ve already gotten rid of a couple, I think I’m going to keep this for now.

Verdict: KEEP

3950967

That’s right, I’ve not actually read this despite knowing how short it is. It’s one of those “Oh yes, I should really get around to reading that” books that I never do. So, because of this I shall make it a priority to read it.

Verdict: REQUESTED FROM LIBRARY


So, after all that I’ve removed two books from my TBR which brings me down to 761 books. Because my goal is to remove five every week that means I need to either start a book today to get it off my TBR or get rid of another one from somewhere in my TBR pile. Luckily, I have Saga volume 3 on my TBR list and so not only will I be able to start that today, but I can also finish it so that will bring me down to 760!

Looking ahead at next week, it looks like there are several books I want to keep which means I’ll need to read several from my TBR list in order to hit 755 by next Monday. Fingers crossed I can keep this pace up as this is really helping me reduce my TBR pile (and helping stop me adding too many new ones to it)


Have you read any of the books from this week? Do you agree with my decisions? Let me know!

One thought on “Down the TBR Hole #3

  1. I own Tales Of Beedle the Bard, but I haven’t read it yet… It’s definitely one of those types of books that just keeps laying around but not being a priority.
