This will the most random way of finding new exciting reads. Each week I’ll choose some random word and I’ll try to find books with this word in the title that I find interesting. This might result in my TBR growing exponentially. Each week though, I’ll first look if there’s a book that I already read that has this word in the title.
- Prepare a list of books with this week’s word in the title that:
- You’ve read (you can export your Goodreads library to Excel file, it will be easier to find words in the titles this way)
- You want to read (look in your TBR and search Goodreads or other places where you find books for new titles)
- You do not want to read (up to you if you want to include this)
- It’s up to you how many books you include in each category
- Both singular and popular version of the word counts
- If the word is a root of another word (like ‘snow’ in ‘snowman’) it also counts
- Tag OlaReadsBooks in your post
This week’s word is: RIGHT(s)
– Books I’ve read –
I haven’t read any book with the word ‘rights’ in the title. Seriously, I must be choosing all the wrong words. All the 400 books on my read shelf on Goodreads, and I again cannot find one that has the word of the week in the title!
– Books I want to read –
- I Have the Right To: A High School Survivor’s Story of Sexual Assault, Justice, and Hope by Chessy Prout – memoir of sexual assault survivor, about healing and justice
- The Boundaries of Her Body: A Shocking History of Women’s Rights in America by Debran Rowland – history of women’s rights in America, it’s a massive book (788 pages) so I’m not sure I’ll ever decide to actually read it.
– Books I do not want to read –
The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun by Gretchen Rubin – kind of self-help book about author’s adventures on a quest to be happy. Sounds good, but doesn’t seem like something I would really enjoy, and actually read the whole book. Also, a lot of reviews mention that authors writes a lot about marriage and parenting, and I just won’t be able to relate to that.
Words for next weeks:
5th February – I
12th February – love
19th February – you
26th February – winter
