Down the TBR Hole #31

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: 1118 books

To be removed

Avenging Amethyst (Immortal Eyes, #1)Once in a Full Moon (Full Moon, #1)Plague Town (Ashley Parker, #1)The Becoming (The Becoming, #1)Her Fearful SymmetryBeyond Lilla

I can’t say all these books aren’t available in my country because I’m pretty sure Her Fearful Symmetry is, but I’ve done a bit more digging on all these books and have found that a lot of them are not readily available and ALL of them I have lost interest in reading. I can see now there are really no benefits to having a cluttered TBR and it just shows everyone how unorganised a person I am 😛 While I have no longer any desire to read these books I will comment to say I love the cover for Avenging Amethyst with the creepy red eyes in the background. I can certainly see what lured me in about the book when I was younger without reading the description, but you should never judge books by their covers!

To be kept

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)Into the Wild (Warriors, #1)Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror, #1)Sanctum (Guards of the Shadowlands, #1)

The two books on the top row my library has and the two on the bottom I have bought for kindle. I was a little unsure about keeping Soulless because I wasn’t too certain about the description, but then saw my library has this whole series. Others have listed this series as “funny” and there are as many good reviews as there are bad. The Warriors series is one I’ve been wanting to read for years but the right time never came 😛 Lots of my friends seem to like this series and I can in a way imagine them being magical and maybe a little similar to Michelle Paver’s books only featuring cats instead of people 😉 Karina Halle is an author I’ve been dying to read from and was gutted to find that my library couldn’t get this series in so I was especially grateful when I found a cheap deal on all these books on kindle. Sanctum is a book I don’t know a lot about despite the description. Is it a mythological based fantasy or an entirely made up paranormal? I suppose it’s better to go into books knowing as little as possible…

Have you read any of these especially those in the to be kept section? Were they good and what did you think of my choices? 🙂
