Hiya bookish people!
I have returned with another addition to my Goodreads TBR. The rules for these are explained below, but basically each post is the remaining books after the latest post of this series. This means there may be some large rating jumps as I add books to my TBR.
All relevant to the date of Feb. 1, 2020, these ratings and averages are subject to change anytime.
The top most popular book on my TBR is After You by Jojo Moyes at 266,433 + ratings and a 3.72 rating average.
I have sorted these books by popularity according to how many ratings there are (relevant to the date I wrote the post, otherwise let’s be honest, it would be super hard to keep updated) as a book can be popular for being bad not just good.
