The Great TBR Purge of 2019: Part 2

The Great TBR Purge of 2019 – Part 2

It’s interesting to see how my reading tastes have changed over the years. There have been times when it felt like I was reading the same books and genres over and over again, but as I look back on the books I added to my TBR when I was in middle school and high school, I can see the difference time has had.

Continuing with last week, I’m rounding out my TBR purge with nine more books. Who will survive, and who gets cut? Make sure you’re all caught up on Part 1, then read on for more!

The Great TBR Purge of 2019: Part 1

The Great TBR Purge of 2019 – Part 1

Two years ago, I took a look at my “To-be-read” (TBR) list on GoodReads and decided it needed some cleaning up. I picked out a handful of books from the list (well, a little more than that, since I split it into two posts) and decided to give them another look. Of those 14 books, only 5 survived the purge, and I ended up reading 3 of those 5 shortly after.

I looked at my TBR list again this year, and realized it might be time for another purge. There’s a lot of books still on there that I added nearly 6 (!) years ago, and I’m different person now than I was when I was 14-15.

Without further ado, The Great TBR Purge of 2019 (Part 1, because I have a lot of books to cover this time)

Week In Review – March 17

Welcome to Friday! I hope that everyone had a good week this week. Me? I’ve been enjoying Spring Break at home (though it’s more like winter break here with all the snow we got this week).

This week, I wrote a tutorial for how I make the title images for my blog posts, so if you’re a fellow blogger, check it out! Of course, you can deviate from my methods – I just wanted to use it as a starting point.

And as for the rest of the week…

The Great TBR Purge of 2017 – Part 2

Welcome back to another round of the Great TBR Purge of 2017! In case you missed it, last week I wrote about how since it’s my goal to read 40 books this year, I want to spend my time reading books I actually enjoy. With that in mind, I’m clearing out my to-be-read list on Goodreads and only keeping the books I’m actually interested in reading.

Last week, I wrote about 7 books that I found on the list, and this week I have 7 more! If you missed last week’s post, be sure to check it out first (or if you just want a recap. The second half of the list is below the cut!

The Great TBR Purge of 2017 – Part 1

Or, “Books on my TBR, why they’re still there, and if they’re going to stay.”

I was looking at my “To-be-read” list – a.k.a. my TBR – on GoodReads the other day, and I realized there are quite a lot of books on it. Many of them I don’t even remember putting on the list in the first place. Since it’s one of my goals to read 40 books this year and I want to spend time reading books I actually enjoy, I decided that it would be a good time to clean out – purge – my TBR.

I’m removing a lot of books, but I picked 14 to share with you, 7 this week and 7 next week. Without further ado, the first have of the The Great TBR Purge of 2017!
