Goodreads Monday was hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.   It’s now hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

It’s getting hard to remember which ones I’ve done already, so I’m sorry if you see a book pop up on these more than once.  It will happen.  Probably a lot.

Down The TBR Hole #245

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go

I am going to remove sequels for books when I haven’t read book one.  They may or may not get added back later.

Since I was to all the recent books, I decided to go back to the beginning of my TBR and  remove a lot of older books I kept the first time around.

May 2022 Wrap Up

 

May was a bad month for us, so I’m not sure how I got so much reading done.  Our almost 10 year old Catahoula, Ripley, had some seizures.  They were caused by a brain tumor we didn’t know he had.  He had no symptoms before the first seizure and he was still super active. We thought we’d have a few more months with him, but he went downhill fast.  Losing him was the hardest thing.  He was definitely my soul dog.  Two days later, our 17 Shih Tzu, Dexter, passed.  He had a super long life and he passed quietly in his sleep.  It was a lot of days spent crying and stressing out.  We can never replace Ripley.  He was special and the smartest dog I’ve ever known.  But we did put down a deposit to get on a wait list for a Catahoula puppy this fall.  Fingers crossed that the litter has what we’re looking for.  I can’t get a dog that looks like Ripley, so we’re being picky.

This is a picture of Ripley from last year.
