Today’s a spring cleaning freebie, which came in handy because I’ve been meaning to clean up my TBR for ages. I’ve been growing my Goodreads TBR list for a few years now, but I’ve realised that after that long the list contains A LOT of books that could be removed.
Some I don’t even remember adding, some I read bad reviews for and don’t want to read anymore, but a very large part are honestly just books I’ve lost interest in. What appealed to me a few years ago doesn’t necessarily still appeal to me. And though I’m terrible at letting go of books, I’ve also learned that there are so many books out there, so why waste time on a huge and confusing TBR full of books that I’m not actually interested in anymore?
So I took a quick look and here are already nine books I decided to remove from my TBR:
This Romeo and Juliet retelling sounds intriguing, but somehow I have lost interest in reading it so off my TBR it has to go (for now).
This story about a girl who can kill with a single touch sounds interesting enough, but I’ve just lost interested and there are too many other books waiting for me.
I read some reviews about this rom-com that made me think I may not enjoy this one. And though I don’t remember exactly why, if I’m not gonna pick it up any time soon, I just need to let this book go for now
I actually started this read and stopped halfway. I wasn’t feeling it but kept the book on my TBR to maybe pick up again later. That was 2 years ago, so now it’s really time to let it go.
Even if part of me feels silly for reading THREE books in a series and then never finishing it with only one book still to go, I just… don’t care about this series anymore and I have a feeling the ending would only disappoint me anyway.
I still like the idea of an East Asian fantasy reimagining of the Evil Queen Legend but I’m just not in the mood lately for a dark villain origin story and I think my mood will not change quickly so I’m putting this one on the sideburner for now.
As you may know, I LOVE k-pop and so I was intrigued by this book about an American girl who goes to a Korean boarding school and falls for a Korean pop star. BUT I’ve read several reviews that all say the same thing: that this book does not give a real look into Korea or the kpop culture but is instead about an annoying girl who looks down on everything Korea and kpop and yet SAVES the kpop industry. Umm, no thank you.
I haven’t been feeling YA contemporary romances lately, and honestly I’m not even sure why I added this to my TBR to begin with since I’m kind of burned out on the rich girl falls for bad boy trope (If the bad boy is supernatural though, that’s a whole other story for some reason *shrugs*)
A futuristic Gossip Girl, a huge tower, a mysterious fall, spoiled rich kids. Meh. I’m getting really repetitive, but really I’m just not that interested in this story anymore.
