Down the TBR Hole #72

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 up to 666 books, which seems very fitting for being in the middle of RIP XIV.

This week’s books:

Black Widow: Red Vengeance by Margaret Stohl – KEEP.  Black Widow is my fave Marvel character, and I loved the first book, Forever Red, so there’s no way I would get rid of this one.

In the Shadow of Lakecrest by Elizabeth Blackwell- KEEP. I don’t think I’ll enjoy this book, since it’s far from my usual reading choices, but I’ll give it the 50 page test.  I might find myself pleasantly surprised.

The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who by Simon Guerrier and Dr. Marek Kukula – KEEP.  The real science behind “Doctor Who”?!  I was so excited when I saw this in a bookstore that I paid the full hardback price without a blink.

The Diary of River Song: Series One by Jenny T. Colgan and Series Two by Guy Adams – KEEP.  These have been on my wish list forever because I can’t find them anywhere for a reasonable price.  Besides the Doctor, River Song is my favorite character in the Doctor Who universe, and I love Alex Kingston.

Do Not Sell at Any Price by Amanda Petrusich – KEEP. I love music and records, and I enjoy reading non-fiction about both.

My TBR pile is stuck at 666 books for now, and I’m not sure it will be decreasing within the next week.  I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump, but hopefully I can pull myself out of it to finish at least one book before the next post.
