“Read it or Ditch it” is a new weekly feature I’ll be doing each Monday on the blog. The goal is to force myself into making a decision regarding some titles on my TBR pile. Each week I’ll select a book that has sat unread on my shelves for longer than a year and ask the question “Read it or Ditch it?”. If I still want to read it, then by posting it here I’m claiming that I’ll read it by the end of the year. If I’m no longer interested in the book, then this is a send off to the title since I’ll either be donating or selling it.
At the end of the year, I’ll do a round-up post to see how I did. If there are any titles that I said I’d read, but still didn’t, then I’ll either donate or sell those. Hopefully, doing this will help me reach my goal of only 100 books sitting unread on my TBR pile by the end of 2016.
The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green
Genre: Young Adult
Length of Time on TBR Pile: Since it’s original pub date, so about 4-ish years.
Read it or Ditch it?: Ditch it
I know, I know. This one is supposed to be really great. But tear-jerkers just aren’t my thing. So, even though I’ve had this one since the year it was published, I’m going to donate it. I’ve got some other books by Green on my shelves that I’ll read instead.
In case you’re interested in the summary:
“Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.”
