I’m back to another instalment of peeking at my Goodreads Want to Read shelf and seeing if I can get it down to a, well, more realistic level! And looks like once more, we’re back to zombies. Why was 2013-Me adding so many zombie books to her TBR?? Seriously, I have no idea what I was thinking, but that’s not to say I haven’t found some so far that I still want to read, so there is hope!
Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
Order on ascending date added.
Take the first 5/10/however many books. If done again, start from where you left off.
Read the synopses of the books
Decide: should it stay or should it go?
Hm, this does sound a little interesting on the face of it. It’s got some of the tropes I’ve discarded others because of, but this one does seem like it might be a bit more to my taste than some others. I think I still want to give this one a go.
Ooo okay this sounds like it might be right up my ally. A messy protagonist who makes wrong choices and has to work through dark shit, in an Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance? Yes please!
A reviewer who I really respect (Laurie, I’d honestly read anything she suggested) notes in her review she’s pretty sure she’s one of the last people to read this book. And nope, Laurie, I still haven’t got to it. I’ve read some of Burke’s work, mainly in short story form, and he’s always come across fairly well – I’m definitely still keen to check this one out.
Wow this hits the “macho fantasy” hard, doesn’t it? A man hunts down a zombie in vengeance for his family. This just doesn’t sound interesting to me at all. I’m sure it has its fans, but the whole “some things a man has to do” just…totally not for me. At all.
This is one of those instances where if it had been a male author, the reaction would be hell no, gone. But this…I’ve heard of Tiptree, and I may have read some of her stuff in anthologies, this could be an interesting story, though I wouldn’t expect too much considering it was originally released in 1976. I still want to check this one out.
So there we have it. Only one book gone this time, but that’s how it goes sometimes. Have you read any of these? Agree or disagree with these comments? Please do let me know!
