Down the TBR Hole #9

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 currently have 566 books on my to-read shelf.  I culled several books towards the bottom of the list while I was looking through them for something to read after a somewhat bad day.

This week’s five books:

Foreign Correspondences by Lesley Krueger – KEEP.  I love travel writing and I already own this in ebook format.

The Thickety: A Path Begins by J.A. White – KEEP.  I already own this one too, and there’s no way I would get rid of what sounds like an awesome Middle-Grade Fantasy story.

How to Catch a Bogle by Catherine Jinks – KEEP.  This is another Middle-Grade book I already own and don’t have plans of getting rid of anytime soon.

Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines – KEEP.  I own this in paperback, and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it and the author.  I might take it off the shelf to read next month.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige – GO.  This seemed so interesting before there was a ridiculous number of other stories which turn the supposedly “good guys” into bad.  No thanks.


My to-read shelf is down to 565 books.  I’ll start off next week with book #81.
