This was originally made by Lost in a Story, and is such a fantastic idea. Here are the instructions:

Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
Order on ascending date added.
Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
Read the synopses of the books
Decide: keep it or should it go?

The Books:

21421609Book #26

Assassin’s Heart  (Assassin’s Heart #1)by Sarah Ahiers

Date added: February 20, 2016

Originally I picked this book up, then stopped reading it and marked it “finish later”. As much as I like assassin books, clearly this one didn’t actually catch my interest, otherwise I would have finished, am I right?




13226194Book # 27

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1) by Susan Ee

Date added: February 22, 2016

Dystopian. Angel Paranormal. YA. This is exactly what I would have put on my TBR list around that time. But for some reason I feel inclined to give the genre a second chance. I am going to keep this book, if only to potentially redeem the genre after Hush, Hush.




6101718Book # 28


The Magicians ( The Magicians #1) by Lev Grossman

Date added: February 22, 2016

Okay, sooo. Adult magic users in the real world. I mean, why wouldn’t I keep this? Plus, the show looks fun..but I want to read the book before I watch it.




21851568Book #29

Hidden Huntress (The Malediction Trilogy #2)  by Danielle L. Jensen

Date added: February 22, 2016

I absolutely loved the first book. I don’t know why I didn’t finish this series, but I need to get back on it. I’ll probably require a reread of the first book since it’s been two years now, but I don’t think I’d mind that.




1582996Book #30

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare

Date added: February 22, 2016

I feel like I just have to continue reading this series. It’s intriguing enough even though I didn’t jump onto the bandwagon with everyone else. I’m sure I will get to this eventually.




Starting TBR shelf total: 446

Total books kept:  4# out of 5

Not a very good week of kicking books off my list, but I did find a bunch of duplicates of other books….soooo that knocked some off.

I’m Curious  \ ^_^ /

What do you think of my decisions? Have you read any of these book
