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.
