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 at 706 books. Now that I’m starting to get the hang of things at my new job, I’m hoping my reading will pick back up, but until then, my TBR will only get smaller by tossing some books off of it. Let’s see if that happens today…
This week’s five books:
Quite Contrary by Richard Roberts – KEEP. I got this book because of the title and the cover. The synopsis sealed the deal. I hope I’m able to find time to read this one during RIP XIII.
T. S. Livingston and the Mystery at Madame Molineaux’s by Violet Selborne – KEEP. This is another book I picked up because of the title and will be keeping. I need to bump this one up the list on my RIP XIII TBR as well, and maybe my potential Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon TBR too.
Wreckage by Emily Bleeker- KEEP. I’m a bit skeptical about this one, especially after reading several reviews. However, I’m willing to give it a shot. I guess I’m feeling generous.
The Creator’s Eye by R.N. Feldman – GO. I’m not feeling so generous that I’m willing to keep a book that has a synopsis that uses a bunch of clichés to say it breaks “metaphysical clichés.” No thank you.
Wulfheart by Daniel T. Ritter – GO. This book is actually only a 12 page short story that is supposed to introduce a much longer story. However, Goodreads doesn’t have any other books listed by the author. It was published in 2015, and while the author might publish the whole book or at least the next part some day, I’m not going to hold my breath.
My to-read shelf is down to 704 books. Perhaps I will break into the 600’s before the end of the year!
