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 have 566 books on my to-read shelf, despite participating in Bout of Books. Also, due to the readathon, I didn’t do a Down the TBR Hole post last weekend, so I’ll being going through 10 books this time.
This week’s ten books:
Alice in Zombieland by Nickolas Cook – KEEP. There’s no way I would ever get rid of a mash up of Alice in Wonderland and zombies! I’m hoping to get around to this one during #RIPXII.
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker – KEEP. I already own this one too, and I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile because I’ve been told that the protagonists become friends with no romance developing. That sounds like a nice change from the usual.
Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews – KEEP. I’m not much of a fan of most Urban Fantasy, only because there’s usually more Romance than Fantasy, but I’ve heard great things about this series and I got the ebook for free a couple years ago.
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – KEEP. I own this in paperback, and I’ve been told it is essential reading for any Fantasy fan. So far, it has sat on my shelf because I get the impression it’s of the Epic variety, and I haven’t been in the mood for that in a while.
The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie – GO. This seemed so interesting when I first added it to my wish list. Now? Not so much.
Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay – KEEP. I’ve been meaning to read this ever since I saw Gay’s Ted Talk a few years ago.
Choose Your Own Autobiography by Neil Patrick Harris – KEEP. I got hooked on memoirs after listening to the audiobook of The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer. I have the hardcover of this one and I will get to it at some point.
My to-read shelf is back down to 565 books. I’ll start off next week with book #91.
