‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’ Part 5

I got this idea from Jessica Robinson at Mrs. Robinson’s Library and I thought it was everything.

My TBR list is standing at 1072. And with the new year coming, I’m going to post this series a few times a week til the end of the year. My goal is to clean up my TBR list for the new year and continue to do so in 2018.

*Disclaimer: As I am on Goodreads on a regular basis, my TBR list will fluctuate a bit throughout this series.

So here is how it goes:

  • 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
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go


  1. Delirium by Lauren Oliver

11614718.jpgThis one was added after I saw a couple friends reading the series. It was at the time where dystopian novels were very popular. I’m not going to get around to reading them, it’s not really a number 1 genre with me any more

Verdict: Toss





2. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

9593911.jpgBook 2 of Delirium. Same as above.

Verdict: Toss





3. Requiem by Lauren Oliver

9593913.jpgBook 3 of Delirium. Same as above.

Verdict: Toss 




4. Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke

46199.jpgNo clue how this one got one the list. Definitely not something that I can easily pick up and read.

Verdict: Toss




5. Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

11447921.jpgThis one was in the same bunch as The Vacationers. And the cover is just beautiful. It is sitting on my shelf waiting to be read.

Verdict: Keep





6. Death Wears a Beauty Mask by MHC

24613096.jpgMy husband got this one for me. His motto is when in doubt, Mary Higgins Clark! Since it is a shelf book, it will remain on my list.

Verdict: Keep




7. The Beginning of Everything by Robin Schneider

13522285.jpgAnother Goodreads popular a few years ago. I’m not going to get around to reading it. My reading tastes have changed as I’ve grown out of life phases, and I’m going to leave this one behind.

Verdict: Toss



8. Extraordinary Means by Robin Schneider

23149128.jpgSame as above.

Verdict: Toss






9. Better than Yesterday by Robin Schneider

88021.jpgSame as above.

Verdict: Toss



10. The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

18798983.jpgThis one, though more Young Adult, looked really interesting to me. I do plan to read it eventually.

Verdict: Keep





Final count: 1065
