Priority List

The purpose of my priority list is to avoid impulse buying and, consequently, reduce my TBR pile. It works as follows. First I make a list of the fifteen books I’d like to read next. Then, whenever I am tempted to buy a new book, I’ll look into my list. I can only buy books from that list. To include a new book in the priority list, I’ll have either to buy or delete another one.

As of today my priority list is as follows (in no particular order):

  • The Terrorists, Maj Sjöwall & Per Walhöö
  • The Drop, Michael Connelly
  • The Cold Cold Ground, Adrian McKinty
  • Winter’s Bone, Daniel Woodrell
  • The End of the Wasp Season, Denise Mina
  • A Dark Redemption, Stav Sherez
  • The Unlucky Lottery, Hakan Nesser
  • The Caller, Karin Fossum
  • Until thy Wrath be Past, Åsa Larsson
  • Phantom, Jo Nesbo
  • Máscaras, Leonardo Padura (English title: Havana Red)
  • The Smell of the Night, Andrea Camilleri
  • The Rage, Gene Kerrigan
  • Taken, Niamh O’Connor
  • The Cut, George Pelecanos
