Down the TBR Hole #8

Down the TBR Hole is a bookish tag created by Lost in a Story It is made to help us shorten our ever growing TBR piles!

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 or 15 or 20, if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Currently on my TBR: 1117 books

Echoes of Us (The Hybrid Chronicles #3)Horde (Razorland, #3)Love Minus EightyCoda (Coda, #1)

Book #76 Echoes of Us by Kat Zhang

Date added: July 28 2013

It seems when I was younger I added the rest of the books in a series to my tbr rather than just the next one 😛 I still plan on finishing this series one day though.

Decision: keep


Book #77 Horde by Ann Aguirre 

Date added: July 29 2013

Once again I seem to have added the third book in a series without yet reading the second one. Because I loved the first book so much I think I’ll keep this here.

Decision: keep


Book #78 Love Minus Eighty by Will McIntosh

Date added: July 29 2013

This seems to have high ratings from a lot of people including my friends, however I don’t think I’m looking for this type of book at the moment plus the story sounds really strange and not in a good way.

Decision: Remove


Book #79 Coda by Emma Trevayne

Date added: July 30 2013

When I read the description of this now I just feel meh :/ In fact I’m not even sure what compelled me to add this in the first place only I was really desperate for dystopia.

Decision: Remove


Ghost PlanetUndone (Unraveling, #1.5)Hereafter (Hereafter, #1)

Book #80 Ghost Planet by Sharon Lynn Fisher 

Date added: July 30 2013

I love the sound of this! It just sounds like the type of book I’d read, however after reading some of the reviews some say this is mostly chick-lit which is something I can never get on with and the main character is not very likeable… All this could be wrong but for now I think I’ll concentrate on other books.

Decision: Remove


Book #81 Undone by Elizabeth Norris 

Date added: July 30 2013

While I do remember loving Unravelling and Unbreakable (and I’m going to reread Unbreakable soon) these days I’m not really keen on reading side novellas of a series as I feel everything I need to know is in the main series.

Decision: Remove


Book #82 Hereafter by Tara Hudson 

Date added: July 30 2013

From what the other reviews say this seems to be filled with cheesy love lines and insta-love… meh…

Decision: Remove


 

All That Glows (All That Glows, #1)Land of the Unaltered (Confederation, #1)Sycamore (Sycamore, #1)

Book #83 All that Glows by Ryan Graudin

Date added: July 30 2013

Not a high GR rating, lots of friends don’t like this and a description that sounds dull as dirt.

Decision: Remove


Book #84 Land of the Unaltered by Leti Del Mar 

Date added: July 30 2013

Yeah… this one more or less screams unattainable…

Decision: Remove


Book #85 Sycamore by Craig A. Falconer 

Date added: July 30 2013

WTF is that cover??? Meh, meh and MEH!

Decision: Remove

 

Once again I don’t know why I added all these unattainable books back in 2013…. 😛 Have you read any of these? Were they good or just plain meh? 😀 What did you think of my decisions? 🙂
