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 shot up to 686 books, mostly because I finally got around to adding the books I’ve bought in the past few months, and partly because I added some books to my wish list.
This week’s books:
Rest Haven by Erik Therme – KEEP. This book sounds like the perfect kind of Horror for me to read during the Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon in October.
The Reader by Traci Chee – KEEP. I found out about this book during a panel at the Texas Book Festival several years ago. The story is set in a world where no one reads or even knows what books are, and that is terrifying to me. I must read it!
Burn Baby Burn by Meg Medina – KEEP. I found out about this one during the very same panel. It’s YA Historical Fiction about a time I know very little about, 1977 in New York when a serial killer known as Son of Sam was out killing people on the streets.
Curse of the Boggin by D.J. MacHale – KEEP. I found out about this book at a different panel that day at that Texas Book Festival. It’s written by the creator of the show “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” This book also involves a mysterious library. I’m hoping to finally pick this one up during the 24-Hour Readathon.
The Forever King by Molly Cochran – KEEP. I bought this book when I realized that I already had the 2nd book in the series, The Broken Sword. I started it quite awhile back, but got sidetracked by another book and never picked it back up. I think reading it sometime this Spring is a good idea.
My TBR mountain is still at 686 books. I’m only a couple of posts away from getting into the books I added in 2017 and the halfway point of the mountain, assuming I don’t add any more books. I wonder if that’s even possible?!
