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 down one to 721 books. I recently started reading The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge.
This week’s five books:
Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine – KEEP. Every time I’m in a bookstore, I look for a copy of this book, but I always wind up putting it back in favor of getting another book (or several). I don’t know why, but it will stay on my wish list for now. Maybe I’ll see if it’s at the library since I don’t seem to want to buy it.
Sorcery and Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer – GO. I don’t know why I was so interested in this book and searched for so long to find a copy. I originally wanted to find it in audio format, since that’s how I prefer my cozy mysteries, but I eventually settled for the ebook. However, after reading the synopsis, I have no interest in reading it now. Maybe I misread the subtitle and thought it had to do with a teapot? Who knows, but bye-bye.
White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi – KEEP. This book sounds thoroughly creepy in a “The Others” sort of way, and I LOVE that kind of creepy. I’m hoping to get a copy to read for the next R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril challenge.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman – KEEP. This is supposed to be “Harry Potter” for adults, and now that there’s a show, I really need to get around to reading the book so I can watch it.
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell – KEEP. I read Slade House and loved it. I have The Bone Clocks on my TBR, and this one is still on my wish list. I’m hesitant to buy it or check it out from the library until I read The Bone Clocks, but I’ll keep it on my list for now.
My to-read shelf is down to 720 books. See you next Saturday when I start with book #141.
