Library Haul & Trash/Treasure My TBR| Dec. 7

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. 

  • All the Pieces Matter: The Inside Story of The Wire, by Jonathan Abrams
  • Imbeciles: The Supreme Court, American Eugenics, and the Sterilization of Carrie Buck, by Adam Cohen
  • Well-Read Black Girl : Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves, by Glory Edim
  • Marley & Me, by John Grogan
  • Homegoing, by Yaa Gyasi
  • How Long Til Black Future Month?, by NK Jemison
  • There There by Tommy Orange
  • Purple Hibiscus, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Exit West, by Mohsin Hamid
  • Red Clocks, by Leni Zumas
  • Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman
  • Severance, by Ling Ma

Trash it or treasure it! Let’s chat in the comments!

Time to shuffle the shelves | November Book Haul

When I started drafting this post, I thought I had a pretty good month as far as hauling went. I had skipped my Book of the Month because none of the books interested me, and I hadn’t found any books in Little Free Libraries. But when I got down to tallying, I realized I must’ve been in a brain fog all month because I still have quite a list here.

My shelves hate me | October Book Haul

Hello, bookworms. Time for my monthly book haul. I wasn’t planning on this many books coming into my life and onto my shelves this month, but things happen (all the fall library sales) and you deal with it (I have no self-control when the books are $1).

So, without further ado, let’s jump into the books!
