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 still sitting at 696. I only have one book to either read or remove to reach my goal of 695 books before the end of the year.
This week’s books:
The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher – KEEP. I got this book as a gift for the Boyfriend. He devours anything written by Butcher and got me hooked on “The Dresden Files” series. I want to read this one so badly, but I’m waiting until I get caught up on “The Dresden Files.”
The Shelf Life of Happiness by David Machado- GO. I think this was one of the Kindle First Reads books, but I can’t remember. All I know is that I chose it because of the cover and the title. I didn’t even read the synopsis, but assumed the story would involve a road trip. Now that I have read the synopsis, I’m no longer interested, but it’s still a cool cover and title.
The Last Woman Standing by Thelma Davis – KEEP. I have no idea how I came across this book, but I know from reading the synopsis why I chose to get it. It is the story of Josephine Marcus, the daughter of Jewish immigrants and Wyatt Earp’s common-law wife. I want to know her story.
Virgins by Diana Gabaldon – KEEP. I will auto-buy just about anything involving Jamie Fraser. End of story.
My to-read shelf is still at 695 books!!! Should I try for 690 by the end of the month? I’ve got the last 10 days of the year off from work, and I intend to spend most of that time with my nose in a book. I’m also halfway through The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly, and I’m hoping to finish it this weekend.
