Hi folks! I hope you’re having a happy weekend. It’s time once again to have a look around my TBR!
This prompt was created by Lost in a Story to help reduce your Goodreads TBR. The end of year lists are not doing me any favours and my Goodreads TBR is now up around 1847.
How to play:
- Go to your Goodreads TBR
- Put it in descending order by date added
- Look at the first 5 (or 10) books
- Read the synopsis
- Decide whether it stays or goes.
Let’s get on it.
Thoughts: This one stays. I have a signed copy – we saw the author at the Brisbane Writers festival a few years ago, and she talked about how this book came from an incident that happened in her family (her daughter had woken up with a stranger standing over her bed). Fortunately the person left, and she wasn’t physically harmed but gosh, how terrifying!
Thoughts: This is also a keeper. I mean , it’s Eric Idle.
Thoughts: This is also a keeper. I am a mighty fan of the Zen Koan. (I also quite like a haiku!)
Thoughts: Keep! There is always room on my TBR for bell hooks .
Thoughts: There was a moment where I thought I would have to take this off my TBR – this was a limited edition run and not available through most of my usual old faithfuls. I have found copies available through Abe books though (if you aren’t familiar with Abe, they are a collection of second hand book stores world wide. If I’m having trouble finding something, I can usually find it there). So this is a keeper – and my copy should be here mid January.
Thanks for joining me in another trip down the TBR hole. What do you think of these? Have you read any?
