Down the TBR Hole #61

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 holding steady at 685 books.  Though I finished a book this week, I didn’t start another one.  I’m already reading 3 books right now, with hardly any time to actually read, so I didn’t want to pick up a 4th only to have it neglected.

This week’s books:

A Dream of Hope and Sorrow by Jonathan Crocker – GO.  Like several of last week’s books, this book comes off sounding generic and uninteresting.

Call of the Herald by Brian Rathbone – GO. I don’t think the synopsis for this book could be any more nondescript and vague.

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle – KEEP.  This contains all of the stories involving Professor Moriarty.  Since I have only ever seen film or TV adaptations of the Sherlock Holmes stories, I’m very interested in reading this book.

Anywhere But Here by Jason D. Morrow – KEEP.  I started this one last Summer, but then got distracted by other Sci-Fi books.  I will pick this one up again, hopefully this Summer.

Engines of War by George Mann – KEEP. I would never willingly remove a “Doctor Who” book from my TBR without reading it.

My TBR mountain is down to 683 books.  I still have a long way to hit my goal for this year, but at least I haven’t added any more books.
