I am now in year FOUR of Tackling the TBR. Slowly but surely I have made big strides in getting my TBR under control. When I first started in 2019, that list was topping out at over 5,000 books. I don't know that I will ever get below 500, but a #BookDragon can dream!
I will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month. Feel free to join in if you'd like!
***This is five weeks' worth of info, given that all Eleanor and I have really done well lately has been to read. If you've missed out, you can find out why HERE. Slowly but surely we are getting back to our normal routines.***
Previous Week's TBR Total: 2,522

Interesting that you DNF'd 'Gone Girl'...!ReplyDelete
I ended up hating it and not caring what happened to any of them! Part of it could be is that I waited too long to read it, and have read so many similar thrillers that have jumped on that band wagon since it came out. Or possibly because I knew what happened since it was all anyone could talk about for months. I just could not care about any of them.Delete
Understandable. Well worn tropes can be SO boring... plus DNFing makes time and room for better books.Delete
I do think I would have loved it, had I read it back when it first came out.Delete
making progress. i loved gone girl, but that is what makes blogging interesting, different strokes for different folks. have a super weekReplyDelete

I think part of the reason I ended up not caring about it or being surprised or anything was that I have waited so long to read it, and read so many similar thrillers in that time since it first came out. Plus I knew the ending, since it was all anyone talked about so months. But I just did not care about any of the characters and couldn't make myself power through.Delete
Rory Power! And ooh These deadly Games. I have her first one but it didn't grab me.ReplyDelete
I think you'll like Burn, it was unique the way Wilder Girls was, and unusual in the big thing that is happening. I liked it a lot. These Deadly Games was okay, and I would read a sequel is one comes out. Not my most fave, but interesting.Delete
