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.

Started with : 1670 books in TBR

Ended with : 1604 books in TBR

  1. These types of posts are so damn satisfying to me. Congrats on the progress! I respect Green’s books but found Paper Towns (and An Abundance of Katherines) to be dull and dry. So no love lost imo.

    Happy reading 💕

  2. There’s a few books you’re offloading that I’ve read and honestly they’re not worth keeping so you made the right choice! There’s not enough time for mediocre books.
