Down the TBR Hole #44

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.

I think I jinxed myself.  My TBR pile is back up to 701 books!  I blame it on my Goodreads feed and the people I have friended on there.  Why did they have to be reading so many great sounding books when I was finally whittling down my TBR?!  Don’t they know I have very little willpower when it comes to books?! *sigh*

This week’s books:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith – KEEP.  I tried to read this a couple of year ago but it was too depressing so I put it down.  I will try again at some point.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke- KEEP.  This is one of those books that I’ve been meaning to read for what feels like forever but I always forget I own it because I have the ebook.

The Undays of Aralias Lyons by K.L. Horvath – KEEP.  This book was highly recommended by another blogger quite a while ago, so I bought the ebook.  Reading the synopsis makes me think this it is so much more than the average Time Travel story and I want to start reading it even though I’m in the middle of 3 other books right now.

The Butterfly Crest by Eva Vanrell – GO.  This was a book I got from the publisher through Netgalley quite a long time ago.  I’m never going to read it so I might as well let it go.

Titanborn by Rhett C. Bruno – KEEP.  I’m adding this book to my list for Sci-Fi Summer.  I’m not sure if it will be anything like “Firefly,” but it sounds too good to pass up.

My to-read shelf is back down to 700 books.  Hopefully I’ll get it back down to 698 by next weekend.
