De-cluttering my TBR

Recently I have seen so many bloggers posting about removing books from their Goodreads “To Be Read” list and decided to do the same. So I had 2,044 books marked as TBR on Goodreads and yes I know that’s fairly absurd. So I started looking through by date, starting with the oldest I had added and sorting through them. I deleted a total of 40 books and plan on going through the rest week by week and deleting more. I looked at each book and based on reading the synopsis, looking at the overall rating and the rating that bloggers I follow gave the book, I decided to keep it on my TBR or delete it. So here are the first 30 I deleted, if one of them is a book you really loved, feel free to comment and let me know!

I remember liking the first two books in the Hush, Hush series, but it’s been so long since I have read them, I barely remember them and I just don’t really have a huge interest in that particular story line in YA fantasy. A lot of the other books, I have seen the movie adaptions several times, like Beastly, The English Patient and The Decedents, so perhaps in the future I may read them, but for now I am going to remove them. The rest I just didn’t have an interest in anymore after reading the synopsis and looking at the ratings. Please tell me someone else has thousands of books listed as TBR on Goodreads haha?
