Offloading the TBR #8

For this fortnight I have 100 books which were added between June 2013 and July  2014. Why did I have so many adds in two months????

Previously on “Offloading the TBR” -> #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5 | #6 | #7

And now, it’s Culling time!

If you see any books you loved on the cull list and think I should read them, I AM SO SORRY but I can’t! I read through a hundred synopses for this post, and depending on various factors like availability of book, intent to commit to long series, etc – I know I don’t want to read them anymore.
