Down the TBR Hole #30

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 721 books.

This week’s five books:

P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern – GO.  I saw the movie adaptation years ago, and really enjoyed it.  I got the paperback, thinking that it would be even better.  However, after reading reviews stating that just about everything was changed for the movie, I’m going to have to let this one go.

Cannonbridge by Jonathan Barnes – KEEP.  I’m horrified by the fact that I haven’t read this one yet.  Why?  Because this is one of the first ARCs I received through Netgalley.  Not only that, but I also own the trade paperback!  I’m going to make a point of picking this one up before the end of #COYER.

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck – KEEP.  This is another book that I feel the need to finally get around to reading this Summer.

Seven Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer- KEEP.  Here’s another one of which I’ve seen the movie adaptation first.  However, I’m still going to read it.  I feel like this book should be read during the Winter, though.

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens – KEEP.  Why have I not read this yet?! *Sigh*
My to-read shelf is down to 720 books.  Hopefully I don’t find anymore books to add before next Saturday! 😉

  1. Haha. You didn’t really remove many books. But I’m glad you learned that PS I Love You is probably not for you. I get so annoyed when films are “inspired by the book”. I never realize it until it’s too late.
    I have all the rest of your books on my TBR, too! I look forward to seeing your reviews of these books. So many classics!!
