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 568 books on my to-read shelf, thanks to starting The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
This week’s five books:
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman – KEEP. How could anyone get rid of a book about a library?!
A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin – KEEP. I got this paperback a couple of years ago when I realized Le Guin is one of those authors that every Fantasy fan should read. I know I won’t get to it before the end of the year, but I’ll probably take it off the shelf early next year.
Dooms Day Book by Connie Willis – KEEP. This was recommended to me by The Boyfriend’s Aunt. I’ve been saving it for #SciFiSummer, but it’s ended up at the bottom of the stack both years that I’ve hosted the challenge.
How to Travel the World on $50 a Day by Matt Kepnes – GO. I’m only taking this off of my wish list because it was published in 2013; which means it’s probably out of date. I might try to find a copy at the library or in a used bookstore at some point, but for now, it’s off the list.
The Sons of Macha by John Lenahan – KEEP. The only reason I haven’t read this one yet is because I found out that Lenahan has been recording the audio book, and I absolutely LOVED the audio books of the 1st two books, Shadowmagic and Prince of Hazel and Oak. I already own the ebook, but I’m more than willing to wait for the magic of the audio.
My to-read shelf is down one book to 567 books. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a couple more pulled off of the shelf by next week when I start with book #106.
