👩 Down the TBR Part 23 👩

Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! I am so excited to spend the day with my son. He will be three on Tuesday and I just can’t believe how fast time is flying!

Today we’re starting the TBR at 1800. I keep adding more books! I can’t help it, they all sound so good! Hopefully we can weed some out today!

✔ What I Kept ✔

A Crack in Forever by Jeannie Brewer

This isn’t something I’d normally keep, but the MC is a doctor, and it;s written by a doctor, so I’ll give it a go.

Tending Lives by Echo Heron

I love nonfic about nursing. Love it!

✘ What I Deleted ✘

The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real by Neta Jackson

I’ve deleted the rest of this series.

Being Elizabeth by Barbara Taylor Bradford

The synopsis just didn’t grab my attention.

Fat Tuesday by Sandra Brown

Just didn’t sound like something I’d enjoy. A cop goes after who he thinks is a crooked lawyer.

The Witness by Sandra Brown

Another legal drama that just seems eh.

Leaving Normal by Stef Ann Holm

Just seems too chick lit for my tastes.

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Removing because I’ve read it already! It’s been a while, but the longer the series went on the less I liked it, so I don’t think I’ll do a reread.

Club Dead by Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse #3

We got down to 1792! It helps that I read a series I still had listed as ‘Want to Read’. We still have a long way to go but I’m so excited to weed out all these books I won’t read!

What did you think of my choices? Let me know in the comments below!

🤔 Down the TBR Part 22 🤔

Another week to clear this forever long TBR! I did go an make sure a lot of my arcs were on my TBR, so we’re starting at 1794, which is more than last week. Let’s get right into it!

✔ What I Kept ✔

French Silk by Sandra Brown

I’m kind of a sucker for stories set in New Orleans. Plus this is a woman who is falling in love and trying to prove her innocence but has secrets she has sworn to take to the grave!

The Chamber by John Grisham

I said I didn’t like legal thrillers, but this is set in MS. And I’ve read another Grisham book and liked it, so I’ll give this one a go.

A Time to Kill by John Grisham

Another legal thriller, but this is also set in MS and by Grisham so I’ll give it a try.

It’s Not Easy Being Green by Jim Henson

I got this book when I graduated nursing school as a gift. I should probably read it.

✘ What I Deleted ✘

Texas Heat by Fern Michaels

I’ve deleted the others in the series.

Pursuit by Karen Robards

The synopsis just didn’t stick out to me.

A Whole New Light by Sandra Brown

Just very chick lit romance. Eh.

The Crush by Sandra Brown

The synopsis seemed kind of convoluted, so I feel like the story may be the same way.

Unspeakable by Sandra Brown

A psychopath escapes prison and tries to kill a deaf mom and her kids. No thanks.

Smash Cut by Sandra Brown

Not a huge fan of legal thrillers, and this is like a mix of that and a normal mystery with some romance thrown in? I’m going to pass.

We are ending the TBR at 1788. Not too bad! I’m so ready to get through all these books and get a true TBR!

What did you think of my decisions? Would you have made any different ones? Let me know in the comments below!

Down the TBR Part 2!

Ok, I was super excited to do the first installment of this series. I got done, felt so accomplished, and just wanted to keep going! I feel like this is going to be a great way for me to clear out all this stuff I have clogging up my list so it can be functional!

Also, I know it isn’t Sunday. I had this post all done and ready to go, but my kid got tubes in his ear today (Thursday) and I just don’t have it in me to do another post. I’m tired, he’s tired. We’re just ready for bed. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite posts though, so you may see a lot more of them. Let’s dive right in!

Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: I’ve heard alot about Sherrilyn Kenyon. I was kind of immediately turned off by the fact the MC was 14. I feel like I’m just too old for that. The friends trying to kill him sounds great, then it just kind of goes downhill for me.
  • Keep or Delete: Delete

Face of Betrayal by Lis Wiehl

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: Crime novel. Features an FBI agent. Count me in!
  • Keep or Delete: Keep

Burning Alive by Shannon K. Butcher

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: Paranormal romance. Boy and girl come together to fight off darkness. Feels very meh.
  • Keep or Delete: Delete

I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: My mom is a huge Sophie fan, and we don’t really like the same books. Right off the bat I’m having reservations. After reading synopsis/reviews, doesn’t seem like my cup of tea.
  • Keep or Delete: Delete.

Sunny Chandler’s Return by Sandra Brown

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: I must have added this one because of my mom too. Okay, but this sounds kind of good, and steamy. So why not?
  • Keep or Delete: Keep

Tough Customer by Sandra Brown

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: Ok, another Sandra Brown. Completely different from the one above. This sounds like a crime/stalker novel so I’m all in.
  • Keep or Delete: Keep.

44 Charles Street by Danielle Steel

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: Reading the synopsis was just Eh. This was another I added because of my mom, but I think I’ll pass.
  • Keep or Delete: Delete

Love the One You’re With by Emily Giffin

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: This seems interesting. Married woman sees the one who got away and starts questioning everything.
  • Keep or Delete: Keep

Sandra Brown Compliation

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: The only one that strikes by fancy is the last book, Send No Flowers. So I’ll probably delete this, but add that one. So it’s a draw.
  • Keep or Delete: Draw.

Visions in White by Nora Roberts

  • Date Added: June 26, 2015
  • Thoughts: I wasn’t too into the idea of four parts of a wedding planning company finding love. Just seems, I don’t know. Eh?
  • Keep or Delete: Delete.

Conclusion

My TBR today started at 1981. I kept 4 books, deleted 5, and had a draw on one – deleted the compilation but added one of the 3 back. So That brings my TBR to 1978.

I wasn’t expecting to keep any of these books, really. Except the crime one. I was surprised at how good the Sandra Brown and Emily Giffin books sounded. Hopefully they will live up to their synopsis!

Can’t wait for another edition of this with you guys!

Until next time…
