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: 1127 books
To be removed
Cannibal Fat Camp WTF? I have not even the foggiest where I got this book from or why I decided to add it to my TBR as it is not in any of the genres I really like and that cover is the last thing I want to see hanging around my house or my e-reader. I think I may have seen this book on a friends currently reading tab or something now that I think back, but still it isn’t the book I’d read even if it were free 😛 Sleepwalking and the Cure were both books my library used to have when I checked through the dystopian section of the catalogue, I must have decided to add them to my TBR as in those days I seemed desperate for any kind of dystopia I could find, but now on seeing these books I don’t think I’ll read them whether my library has them or not because as I keep saying it seems I’m developing a reluctance to read bottom of the barrel books 😛 I’ll read books that are available and are not really popular but books that are not widely available and are short standalones with not many ratings seem to feel kind of pointless and don’t tend to grab my attention much. Maybe that will change one day though…
To be kept
The Giver, the Hunted, the Disappeared and The Tale of the Monster… are all available in my library catalogue so even though some of them I am not overly enthusiastic about reading, I think that will change with my library having these books as I have always been thrilled when I see my library has some books from my TBR. Open Minds is one I would have removed but it was free on kindle so I thought what the hell and decided to try it. Girl in the Arena is one I’ve wanted to read for many years now but have never got around to requesting it from my library. It doesn’t seem to have many good reviews on both GR and Amazon, but every time I read that description I want to find out for myself what makes it so good or so bad. Stitch I was surprised to see was readily available on Amazon here where I live (the whole series too!) so this is another one where I could request them from the library, but as of recently I seem to be really falling behind with my current reading (it even says so on GR ) however these books can still be remembered for future days
if WHEN I have a smaller amount of books on my library TBR 😛 😉
