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: 1113 books
To be removed
I remember picking up Necroville in my local library a few years back but never read it. Now the library seems to have gotten rid of it and while it does seem to be available on Amazon, it just seems to have a plot that makes me think meh when I read it even though it sounds like it could be philosophical. In fact most of the books here have me thinking meh when I read their descriptions and others like Gameland, Firebird and Bunker 10 are ones I feel are too short and I’m reluctant to read them because they also seem to be bottom of the barrel books which I’ve been avoiding in recent years due to unfinished series and experiences of unfulfilling stories I’ve had in the past. Unravel is a sequel I’m not sure why I added because I remember not liking the first book in the series at all so have no desire to read on nowadays 😛
To be kept
Two of these books, Finnikin of the Rock and Suicide Game I have on kindle, acquired on some of my past book spending sprees and as usual don’t ask me when I’ll read them because that is probably a long way into the future! I was a little hesitant on whether to keep the Rule of Claw because while my library has it, they don’t seem to have the sequel which I can remember them having in the past so they must have gotten rid of it. I have also checked and the sequel doesn’t seem to be available in any other library in my region and also isn’t widely available on Amazon so I don’t know if I should be getting rid of this book and forgetting about it or trying to read the first and hope my library can somehow get in the second… It seems to have such brilliant ideas surrounding it though, the type of ideas I’d devour normally so what do you think I should do? Elusion has been on my TBR since it came out and even though there are many negative reviews it still holds my interest into what could be an interesting dystopia. It is a series that is thankfully widely available and hopefully it will stay that way 😉
