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 704 books. I finished my library books and started another book for RIP XIII, but I also added a book to my wish list.
This week’s five books:
A Better Way to Die by Paul Cornell – KEEP. The synopsis spends more words about how great the author is than about anything concerning this short story collection, which makes me feel extremely skeptical. However, I already own it and Cornell has written a couple of the “Doctor Who” books, so I’ll give it a shot.
A Free Man of Color by Barbara Hambly – KEEP. I bought this book, and the 2nd in the “Benjamin January” series, Fever Season, while the Boyfriend and I were visiting Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana a few years back. I’m hoping to read it before the end of the year.
My to-read shelf is still at 704 books. Hopefully that will change by next weekend, but I’m not going to hold my breath. I went from finishing 4 to 6 books a month to only getting through 2 books in August and 2 books this month. I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
