One way to get through the TBR shelf is to bounce off what I’m trying to read. I’ve had a couple of thuds in a row, one mystery novel (which my mom couldn’t finish either) and an epic fantasy that I…probably could have made it through…if I’d really wanted to try…but it felt very over-written to me and I was just kind of tired of it before I got to page ten. Throw in a couple graphic novels and my little debacle with the MC Beaton books last month, and hey, that’s five or six books knocked off the TBR shelf in no time! @.@
Technically my friend Carol Berg’s book DUST & LIGHT is up next, but it’s book one of a duology and the second will probably be out around August, so I may skip that for now so I can read them back to back when book 2 is available. That brings me to MR Carey’s THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, so I think I’ll go right ahead and read that.
Although possibly I should now work in one of the non-fiction books, else I fear I’ll never actually read them. I’m still undecided on whether I have to read those alphabetically or not. There aren’t nearly as many of them. :) Thoughts? :)
