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 officially under 700 books! I owe it all to the #Readathon last weekend.
This week’s books:
Bad Magic and Bad Luck by Pseudonymous Bosch – KEEP. Both of these books sound like a lot of fun.
A Blade of Black Steel by Alex Marshall- KEEP. I absolutely loved A Crown for Cold Silver, so there’s no way I’m getting rid of this book.
The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone – KEEP. “Veronica Mars” meets “World of Warcraft”?! Yep, I’ll give this cozy mystery series a chance.
Acne, Asthma, and Other Signs You Might Be Half Dragon by Rena Rochford – KEEP. I absolutely love the title, and I’ve read several great reviews.
The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub – KEEP. I love King’s older books, but I’ve never read any of the one’s he co-authored. I’ve had this particle story on my physical TBR for more years than I remember, but unfortunately it will probably still be on the shelf until next year. I only read Horror during September and October, I’ve already read a King novel this year (‘Salem’s Lot) and I’m currently in the middle of Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt (highly recommended by King, BTW) with less than a week left until Halloween.
My to-read shelf is down to 698 books. It probably won’t decrease at all this week unless I miraculously finish the 4 books I’m reading right now, but at least it’s under 700.
