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 up to 706 books. I added a couple to my wish list.
This week’s books:
The End is Nigh, The End is Now, The End Has Come ed. by John Joseph Adams – KEEP. These 3 books will remain on my wish list because I will buy all of them at the same time or not at all. They are a set of short story anthologies with the 1st one being pre-apocalyptic, the 2nd being apocalyptic, and the 3rd post-apocalyptic. I don’t know if anyone else has ever attempted this before, but I don’t care; I need them in my life.
Badge, Book, and Candle by Max Gladstone – KEEP. This is episode 1 of the “Book Burners” serial. After I got sucked into my first serial, “The World Devoured”, and then it disappeared after 2 episodes, I was hesitant to add this one to my TBR. However, it has 16 episodes in season 1, 13 in season 2, 13 in season 3, and a complete 4th season was published in August. I think it’s safe to say that it’s popular.
Pet Sematary by Stephen King – KEEP. This is one of the few King novels I’ve never read, and, trust me, I will correct that.
My to-read shelf is still at 706 books. I know that’s because it’s October and these books were added during the same month back in 2015. I tend to add books to my TBR and/or wish list seasonally and my sub-pile of Horror has been growing exponentially for some time thanks to October only being one month. How am I supposed to catch up on all those wonderfully scary, creepy books in 31 days?!
