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: 1289 books
To be removed
I feel quite gutted to be getting rid of Star Crossed and the Titanic Locket because they both sound like reads I’d still enjoy now. I’ve decided to remove them for different reasons though, the Titanic Locket I have to remove because it is not available in my country anymore and Star Crossed because the series is incomplete and others have said the second book ends on a cliffhanger and there is no sign of the third book despite it being many years since the last book was published. Oh how it irks me when there are awesome series starters but the author doesn’t complete the series, there are many different reasons for this I know, but it is oh so annoying, does anyone else agree? 😛 I’m getting rid of Poison and Hungry because simply they are books I cannot imagine myself giving up time to read as they are both short standalones and I have a much higher expectation of books nowadays. These could be very good short standalones but I don’t think I’ll bother at the moment.
To be kept
All of these books are easily accessible because the library has the Maximum Ride books, Lament and Kelly Armstrong’s books and I own City of a Thousand Dolls and Vessel 😀 The Taken series are easily available on Amazon so the library should be able to get those in one day but the ones I most look forward to reading are Vessel and City of a Thousand Dolls because of the exotic settings and cultures within so they’d make great holiday reads. I must say I also really look forward to the Taken series even though they’re not that highly rated on GR the premise sounds so exciting and exactly what I’d read these days. I was a little unsure of keeping the Angel Experiment because these books do sound a lot like spy thrillers which I’ve never been really fond of but I’m willing to give this book a chance as I remember enjoying this author in the past. The Summoning is one I will also read when I get the chance to because I will admit I still like ghost stories and this, according to the description, promises to offer something new to the table. This author is also widely recognised and I’m surprised I haven’t read more of her books 😛 Lol it feels like I’m unearthing potential treasures long forgotten by going through this TBR, anyone else ever get his feeling!? 😂😂😆
