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.
I know I usually post these on Saturdays, but I’ve been so busy this past week with work that I wanted a day away from computers and went out to spend time enjoying a rare (for this week) non-rainy day. Thanks to Bout of Books, my TBR pile is down to 681 books.
This week’s books:
The Three Day Runaway by Katarina Green – KEEP. Though I think $100 a day seems like a bit much for most long-weekend trips, I’m interested in all of the tips and strategies for saving money on my adventuring.
Aerisia: Land Beyond the Sunset by Sarah Ashwood – GO. The synopsis made this book out to be really generic sounding with a predictable plot.
Dragon Time and Other Stories by Ruth Nestvold – GO. The synopsis has me confused about the sub-genre of this short story collection. It comes off as a mix of Fantasy and Romance, but I’m really not sure. Maybe I’m feeling picky today, but I really don’t care to find out.
The Sword of Light by E.J. Gilmour – GO. Another extremely generic Epic Fantasy with a male main character. I’m just not interested.
Forsaken by Kristen Day – KEEP. The synopsis made this book sound so good until it got to the romance part. Still, I want to give this one a chance, especially after ditching the 3 previous books on my TBR.
My to-read shelf is down to 678 books. Next weekend is the 24 in 48 Readathon, so I’ll be taking another week off from “Down the TBR Hole”.
