Top 10 Tuesday: Books I’m No Longer Interested in Reading

This is part of Top 10 Tuesday, which is run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today’s Top 10 Tuesday calls for some books you’re not interested in reading. So, I’m going to team my answers up with another bookish meme – the Down The TBR Hole.

This is a challenge started by Lia from Lost in a Story. The aim is to cull ten books from your Goodreads TBR and free yourself up for the books you actually do want to read.

So, the rules are:

  • Go to your Goodreads TBR shelf.
  • List it in ascending order.
  • Pick the first five/ten books and decide whether you want them to stay or go.

2018 Reading Challenge

The years are definitely passing a lot faster these days because I swear I wrote last year’s reading challenge just yesterday. I have just closed off that challenge from 2017, and let’s be real it did have a little bit of room for improvement. Thankfully, there’s a whole new year stretching out in front of me with some brand new prompts to tick off.

This year, I’m going to do my very best to make sure I don’t fall behind. I’ll be keeping track of the challenges in my reading journal, so I can be certain I have checked a prompt off.

With so many books out there that I really want to read, and a whole 365 days in which to read them, I am really hoping that this year, I’ll be finishing up with a majority of books ticked off from the two prompt challenges, and again have surpassed my Goodreads challenge. Do we be realistic, or head out with dreams of glory? Time to find out what’s in store.

Books I read in a day

I am, by my own admission, not a very fast reader. It can take me up to a week to read your average 300 page novel. But, every so often, inspiration springs forth from god knows where and I manage to beast through a whole book in just a day. It doesn’t happen quite as much as I’d like it to, but I think its rarity is what makes it all that more special.

Sometimes, I do find that magic lengthy book that I just cannot put down, but more often than not the books that I manage it through within 24 hours are quite short. It still counts though, as every second spent reading matters.

Down the TBR Hole #1

I’ve made a very startling discovery. I have quite a lot of books on my Goodreads TBR. So, I’ve decided it needs a bit of a cull. Thankfully, the lovely Lia from Lost in a Story has put together a little challenge to help make your TBR a little bit shorter. Down the TBR Hole is a simple way to get rid of some of the books that you will never read on your TBR and maybe lessen the load a little.

At the moment, my TBR has 317 books on it, which is kind of a lot. So, time to get a little harsh with the ones that are on it.
