Well hello beautiful people! It’s a beautiful day outside today and I have decided to do another TBR purge! I was inspired by Kerri McBookNerd to do this, so go check out her most recent TBR post. I currently have 255 books on my TBR according to Goodreads. I’m pretty sure that’s off by one or two books, but I’m not going to be too picky about it.
Since books on my TBR are books that I actually own, I will also be un-hauling these books as well.
On with the purge!
The Girls With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
This book is classified as a dystopian thriller and I dislike the dystopian genre. So much. I’ve tried to read this a couple of times since I bought this years ago, and never really made it past the first chapter so I’m going to purge it.
Packing for Mars by Mary Roach
This is one of those books I’m not entirely sure about. I like books about space, but I haven’t even tried to read this since I got it. I bought it on a whim (the story of my book buying life) at a thrift store, and I wasn’t really sure of it when I bought it. So yeah, purge.
The Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin
So when I bought this I thought it was the Broken Earth trilogy. I made an error. Not to say I wasn’t going to read it, but I never read it, and I’ve had it for a few years. The Hubs tried to read it and wasn’t able to get through the first book. And for some reason, this wasn’t included in my Goodreads TBR, so, yeah. Purge.
The Storied Life of A.J. Frikry by Gabrielle Zavin
I also picked this one up at a thrift story and was on the fence about it. I’ve heard mixed reviews about it and haven’t been sure about it for a while, so purge.
Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
This is the book that made me decide to do the purge today. I’ve been debating getting rid of it for a while because the plot just doesn’t interest me. I bought it on Book Outlet because they were having a sale, and I’m no longer going to be doing that…I say as she know I am totally going to do that again. But yeah, purge.
Geekerella by Ashley Poston
This story has everything I would want, but after reading the first chapter of this the other day, I decided the writing style was just wasn’t for me. So I am going to go ahead and purge this.
So here is where I leave you with this purge. You’ll see another purge post soon, as I removed way more than this from my TBR pile. Woosh.
What books would you remove from your TBR list?
