Goodreads TBR Cleanout: The Remaining TBR

Yesterday, I cleaned out my Goodreads TBR, removing all books I no longer had any interest in and leaving myself with a TBR of under 100 books (~1 year of reading). Today, I want to share the books that made the cut.

There are definitely books I’m more excited about than others and some that very nearly were removed but I’m just not ready to give up on them yet. So I put the list in alphabetical order to easily pull from Goodreads but I have coded it. Books shown in Bold are either owned or currently on loan from the library (I typically have about 20 books out and return about a third unread so no guarantees). Books with a * afterwards are on my 23 Books for 2023 List. Books in italics are not yet released. And finally, books with a ? afterwards are the ones I almost removed and will probably be removed if not read in the next year.

Without further ado, here’s the list:
