Happy Friday, bookworms!
So, I have a problem. AKA the problem I have every day of the year. I have a dozen audiobooks out from the library just waiting. Now normally what I do in this situation is prioritize listening to the books that are due soonest and by culling the list whenever I realize I’m not in the mood for a book/don’t foresee being in the mood before time runs out. With the end of the year coming up, I wanted to be more intentional about what I’m reading. I don’t want to waste the end of the year reading mediocre books!
So here’s what I have checked out. I want to know what you think about any of these books, and either trash it or treasure it. I want to know which books to prioritize and which I should ditch.
I have moderate to high interest in most of these. Others I only checked out because they were on my physical TBR and I wanted to prioritize those books.
