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.
