Down the TBR Hole #9

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: 1112 books

VoluntaryDeviantStarglass (Starglass, #1)Toxic Heart (Mystic City, #2)

Book #86 Voluntary by Aaron Powell 

Date added: July 30 2013

This is a short story and I’ve never really been fond of short stories so I wonder if I knew what this was when I added it…

Decision: Remove

Book #87 Deviant by Helen Fitzgerald 

Date added: July 30 2013

Even reading that description now I must say this sounds good. However I’m still not sure it’s the right book for me as many have listed it as realistic fiction and I know back in 2013 I added this on the thought that it was dystopian.

Decision: Remove

Book #88 Starglass by Phoebe North

Date added: July 31, 2013

Oh this sounds amazing even now! I can also see it and its sequel are available to buy on Amazon where I am…

Decision: keep

Book #89 Toxic Heart by Theo Lawrence 

Date added: July 31, 2013

I did love the first book in this series when I first read it when it came out, however since reading it I have had no desire to read further for some reason… *shrug* I guess I just lost interest.

Decision: Remove

Soulbound (Legacy of Tril, #1)UnWholly (Unwind, #2)Masque of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death, #1)

Book #90 Soulbound by Heather Brewer

Date added: July 31, 2013

This seems to be a high fantasy novel and not only that but a lot of reviewers are saying it has a cliffhanger ending and there’s not a sequel in sight, so I know there are plenty other high fantasy series out there.

Decision: Remove

Book #91 UnWholly by Neal Shusterman 

Date added: July 31, 2013

I didn’t really like Unwind. It was ok but nothing overly special for me, however my library has a lot of books by this author and I am still curious to see what happens to this world and characters even after all this time lol

Decision: keep

Book #92 Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin 

Date added: August 1, 2013

Definitely still want to read this, it sounds so good but the best part? My library has it yes!

Decision: keep

AboveEverneath (Everneath, #1)Struck (Struck, #1)

Book #93 Above by Leah Bobet 

Date added: August 2, 2013

I own a copy of this book! Most people seem to either love or hate it and I can only find out for myself by reading it… too bad I’m just too busy 😛

Decision: keep

Book #94 Everneath by Brodi Ashton 

Date added: August 2, 2013

Have been meaning to read this for years as it’s been on my library bookshelf for a long time. Many also say it’s very good but for me that premise of Greek mythology and retellings shouts my name by itself 😀

Decision: keep

Book #95 Struck by Jennifer Bosworth 

Date added: August 2, 2013

This sounds so strange…. but interesting. My library has a copy at the moment so it’s definitely worth a try… as long as it doesn’t get boring lol 😉

“So many books, so little time” so they say! Have you read any of these? What did you think of this weeks decisions? 🙂
