Offloading the TBR #13

For this fortnight I have 100 books which were added between January and August 2015. This time, I have retained about half the books, though some of them are just because they were galleys and I do intend to read my galleys—-some day!

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.
