Down the TBR Hole was started by Lia over at Lost in a Story. All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
How it works:
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
I will be repeating this process every week until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR. I skipped last week since I was participating in the 24 in 48 readathon, so I’m doing 10 books this week instead of only 5. I currently have 575 books on my to-read shelf. I owe the decrease almost entirely to the readathon, but also I found some books on the list that I had already removed from my collection but had forgotten to take off of Goodreads.
This week’s ten books:
The Lord of the Plains by Sarah Chapman – GO. Meh. I don’t know when I picked up this ebook, but I hope I didn’t pay anything for it.
Gods and Dragons – Keep. I have no idea if any of these eight books will be any good, but I already own them, so I’m willing to give them a chance.
A Sea of Shields by Morgan Rice – GO. I know I had to have picked this one up for free because there is no way I would have paid money for the 10th book in a series which I’ve never read. I’m not interested in this one enough to read nine other books before finally getting to read it.
The Final Formula by Becca Andre – GO. The synopsis makes me think this one will have me raising my eyebrows at a bunch of plot points that feel implausible, and I don’t have time for that crap.
Vigilante of Shadows by Miranda Stork – GO. One word: Nope.
Birth of the Monster by Shane K.P. O’Neill – GO. The synopsis says this is the prequel to The Dracula Chronicles series, but next to the title it says this is book 5.5. Either way, I’m not interested.
My to-read shelf is down to 570 books! It will probably stay there for a week or two if it doesn’t grow since I already know I’ll be keeping several of the next books on the list. I’ll start off next week with book #56.
