Read or skip #12

READ OR SKIP

Inspired by book blogger Davida, at The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog, herself inspired by a couple of other bloggers (see here for instance). I plan to post about it on Saturdays, except the 1st Sat of the month, when I usually feature another meme.

The rules are simple:

  1. Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf from oldest to new
  2. Pick the first 5 or 10 (or whatever number you choose, depending on how large your list is) books you see
  3. Decide whether to keep them or get rid of them.

RESULTS FOR PREVIOUS READ OR SKIP

147) The Museum of Literary Souls

  • It’s Fantasy, that I don’t often read
  • BUT it’s about books, and how fiction can enter real life,
    and it’s a short story
    READ

148) Vies minuscules

  • I still haven’t read anything by Michon.
  • BUT the synopsis no longer grab me. Funny, I added so many French books at one point, and now I’m not sure why
    SKIP

149) L’héritage de tata Lucie

  • Another French title that illustrates my last point
  • Plus, this is humor, not my cup of tea
    SKIP

150) The Map Thief

  • I rarely read true crime
  • BUT this topic sounds fascinating, with history and geography
    READ

151) Lost For Words

  • A book about books
  • BUT a satire. Not sure it’s worth it
    SKIP

152) I Remember

  • Biography/Memoir of an author who fascinates me more and more
  • And it’s short
    READ

153) The Bilingual Brain

  • Ben évidemment que j’veux lire ce livre !!
  • Well, of course I want to read this one !!
    READ

154) The Poisoning Angel

  • I have read and enjoyed several books by this quirky author
