I saw that BooksandLala did this video on her channel a while ago, and recently I saw in my feed that Jean Bookishthoughts just posted a video doing this challenge. With that, I was inspired to join in and from November 1st to 8th, I will challenge myself to read the lowest rated books on my “owned and need to read” TBR on Goodreads.
It will be interesting to see if I too feel that these books fall into that rating or if I find a new favourite book/author. It also helps me clear out my TBR stack of books that have been lingering and towards my goal of completing 100 books this year (currently at 86!).
If I enjoyed this little experiment I definitely want to switch it up and read the highest rated books on my TBR or maybe read the oldest books on my TBR.
Guidelines I want to give when choosing these is the books:
- they will need to have at least 500 reviews as I feel like that’s a good amount of ratings from others for the average rating
- I’m going to pick 5 books in case I can’t get into one of these and end up DNFing it (not going to force myself to read something I’m not grooving on!)
- I’m not going to read any of the reviews as that can skew my thoughts and enjoyment
Without further adieu, let’s pull up my Goodreads app and sort this shelf into average rating from low to high.
