The post I have for you today is super simple, except that it requires participation from you! I saw this idea/series on Wish Fulfillment, but the idea was created by Drinking By My Shelf, so please check both of them out. The point of this post is to convince me not to read these books. There is only so much time in a persons life time, and sadly no one can read all of the books. If things work out this will be a series.
The point of this is usually to clear of your Goodreads TBR, but I’ve decided that I would also like to extend this to my physical TBR, as there are probably some books there that I’m not interested in reading anymore, or are even problematic, and I don’t really want to buy many more books until some of those are cleared of. So, today I’ll be sharing some of my Physical TBR, and you are going to help me unhaul some of them, I have about 200 books on my Physical TBR, I won’t go through them all in this post, as I have a lot of series or sequels. Once I get through these one’s, I’ll move on the Goodreads Books, which I have 254 books listed on there. I have cleared out and removed a lot of books this year, this number used to be in the 2000’s, but this is still overwhelming for me. I need your help to tell me which ones to get rid of.
Okay, so let’s get on with it, shall we! I want you to tell me anything and everything wrong with these books. Whether you hated the book because it perpetuated hateful ideals. So basically any reason you can think of that would make someone not want to read a book.
Also, if you really want to, you can try to convince me to pick up one of these books sooner. The power is all yours so have fun with it.
Tell me which of these books NOT to read. Let me know if:
- There are problematic elements to the book. Occasionally I can look past that, but that’s a very rare occurrence for me, so I’d rather just avoid them entirely.
- The Authors of any of these books have expressed ignorance in some way, such as racism, Ableism, Homophobia/Queerphobia, etc.
- You rated the book one, two, or even three stars. And please do include three stars as well. This one is super simple. I just don’t want to read bad books. I know some people definitely consider three stars to be a good rating, and while I don’t entirely disagree, it’s not an amazing rating. There aren’t too many books that I’ve given 5 or even 4 star ratings to and this definitely needs to change.
- And please let me know if you hated the writing style of any of these books, writing style is very important to me, if I don’t like the writing style, I probably won’t like the book much.
And that’s it! Please comment and participate. I appreciate every single one of you. But it will be slightly easier to appreciate you if you leave a comment down below. 😉 It doesn’t even have to be cohesive sentences! Lists are perfectly acceptable too. I adore lists.

That is a long list. This is most of the books on my Physical TBR, and if you guys enjoy this post, I will do a part two. Next up will be the TBR books from my Goodreads shelf! I hope you saw some books you recognized! If you haven’t disliked any of these books, It’s okay for you to leave a comment about which ones I should prioritize instead. But it’s highly recommended that you trash the heck out of my TBR. If you guys like this post I’ll make it a series! Would you like me to continue with this?
Also, I will have my October TBR up by Tomorrow, sorry for the lateness of it, I have been so busy with my Etsy Shop, and I’ve been creating a lot of new products lately, that I’ve been neglecting my Blog! I am going to have Bath Bombs/Fizzers available soon, and I’m hoping to Launch a Book Subscription box in January next year!
I’m also looking for anyone from Australia that is interested in reviewing any of my products, or my Subscription box, please email me here: Drinkcoffeeandreadbooks18@gmail.com or if you would like to get updates on these products, please subscribe to my mailing list here: https://mailchi.mp/136635d70181/subscription. Sorry, I’m rambling, but If you’re interested in any of this, please subscribe. It’ll make my day. Thank You!
Once things settle down a lot, I will be back to regularly blogging and posting reviews again. Hopefully Soon! Thank you for sticking around! Happy Reading!
