Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Added to My TBR and Forgot Why

A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Oh my gosh, what a topic! I mean, how guilty are we all for adding books to our TBR piles and then completely forgot why?! Either forgot why or simply forgot about and then BAM! So many books releasing each month… 🤪

For this, I’m going waaaaaay back into my “want-to-read” shelf on Goodreads. The fun thing about this particular shelf is that it tells you the date you added the book to that particular shelf.

This prompt must be designed to make me go back and read the synopses of all these books and then go, “Wow, that still sounds good!” and then keep it on my TBR. The cycle continues until I die apparently, LOL. I added all of these books back in 2016! Four years later… Oops!! 🤣

Sometimes I add books by authors whose previous books I read and didn’t enjoy. I try to give them a second chance. That’s the case with These Rebel Waves. I managed to get through Snow Like Ashes, but DNFed the sequel.

Now I reread the synopsis of Have a Little Faith in Me and like ??????? I added the book to my TBR in 2018. I think because To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a comp title. I’m just gonna…remove it now.

I added all these books back in 2019 and again, I remember nothing about them until I read the synopses but at the same time, I’m like ??????? I guess this means my TBR needs to be purged of some books. Of these four, the only ones that really catch my eye again is The Beast’s Heart which is a Beauty and the Beast retelling and Splinters of Scarlet which has Downton Abbey as a comp title.

Me, after writing this post:

Because I remember nothing…and am confused.

What a fun yet back-to-reality post about books I add to my TBR and then just…forgot. Hehe.

Please leave your T10T posts in the comments and I’ll be sure to check them out. I hope my post doesn’t make you add any books to your TBR, lol.
