Down the TBR Hole #47

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 until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR.

My TBR pile is holding steady at 698 books.  I’m hoping it will decrease by Monday since I’m currently in the middle of the #ThanksgivingReadathon.

This week’s books:

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – KEEP.  Every time I see this book on my wish list, I decide I’m not ready for the heartbreak.  I will eventually read it, but not right now.

Lending a Paw by Laurie Cass- KEEP.  I ❤ cozy mysteries involving books and cats.  I especially enjoy listening to them on audiobook while I’m crocheting.

The Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco by Laura DiSilverio – KEEP.  This cozy mystery involves a book club.  Yes, please!

Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Barnhill – KEEP.  I added this book to my TBR after reading a review from one of the many book blogs I follow.  The story involves a princess, a dragon, and a forbidden book.  The illustrations are amazing, and I hope to read it soon.

The Princess Bride and Philosophy ed. by Richard Green and Rachel Robison-Green – KEEP.  The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favorite movies and books, so of course I need to add this book to my collection.

My to-read shelf is still at 698 books. I only have 2 more days until I’m back to work.  I’m hoping to finish at least one more book before then, so hopefully my TBR will be at 697 by next weekend.
