Down the TBR Hole #42

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 706 books.  Even though I finished a couple of books, I also added a couple.  

This week’s books:

Girl Defective by Simmone Howell – KEEP.  The synopsis starts with “In the tradition of High Fidelity and Empire Records…”  There is no way I’m not reading this book.

Time and Again by Jack Finney- KEEP.  This story involves time travel and a romance.  If it is in any way comparable to Outlander, I’ll take it.

The Old Brown Suitcase by Lillian Boraks-Nemetz – KEEP.  This is the story of a young girl who lived in the Warsaw Ghetto and then immigrated to Canada.  I’m a little obsessed with books about WWII.

Imaginary Boy by Mark Eldrich – GO.  I don’t know why, but I’m no longer interested in reading this book. *Shrug*

The Song of the Quarkbeast by Jasper Fforde – GO.  I’m only removing this book because I haven’t read the first book in the series yet.  I’ll probably add it back to my TBR after I finish The Last Dragonslayer.  

My to-read shelf is down to 704 books.  Since I just started ‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King,  that number isn’t likely to go down by next Saturday.  However, next weekend is the Dewey’s 24-Hour #Readathon!  There won’t be a “Down the TBR Hole” post until the weekend after that, and I’m hoping I’ll be down to 700 books by then.
