Down the TBR Hole #48

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 down one from last week, which means I only have one book to knock off of the mountain to reach my goal of 695 books before the end of the year.

This week’s books:

Déjà Dead by Kathy Reichs – KEEP.  I loved “Bones” and though I’m sure there are quite a few differences between the show and the book series, I have to try out the first book.

Tuf Voyaging by George R.R. Martin- KEEP.  Tuf is “…an honest space-trader who likes cats.”  How could I pass that up?!

Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs – KEEP.  I picked up this absolutely beautiful hardcover book soon after it was published and there is no way I’m getting rid of it.  It has become a part of my permanent library.

Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet by Charlie N. Holmberg – KEEP.  I auto-buy anything by Holmberg, usually as a pre-order since I’m subscribed to her newsletter.

The Unbroken Line of the Moon by Johanne Hildebrandt – KEEP.  This is the 4th book in the “Sagan om Valhalla” series, but the 1st book in the translated “Valhalla” series.  The first 3 books in the original series haven’t been translated into English, which is a bit disappointing.  Since I got the ebook for free, I’m going to go ahead and give it a try.

My to-read shelf is still at 696 books. I’m sticking to my goal of 695 for now. With only a month left before 2019, I highly doubt I’ll be able to get it as low as 690, but who knows?  I’ve got the last 10 days of the year off from work, and I intend to spend most of that time with my nose in a book.
