Down the TBR Hole is a meme type thing started by Imaginary Places on Paper to help cut down your Goodreads TBR.
This is how it works:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
Repeat this every week until your TBR is cleaned off!
I'm going to be adventurous and do it ten at a time! Here are the first ten I have to decide on:
Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
I have had this book on my Goodreads shelf since 2012. I am not an enormous fan of contemporary novels so I'm really not that psyched to read it anymore. I have a copy and I will probably read it someday because it sounds cute. But I don't think it's urgent enough to keep on my TBR.
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
This is a book I pretty much bought just because it's by J.K. Rowling. It is another book that I actually have a copy of, but don't know if I'll ever actually read it. I started it once, but didn't make it very far. I think I'll have to really be in the right mood to ever get this book read.
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This book sounds really good. It has been on my Goodreads TBR since 2012 and I haven't gotten around to it, but I still think it sounds so good. The cover is also super pretty. Hopefully if I keep it on my list, it will light a fire under my butt to get it read.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Yet another book that I own and has been on my TBR for YEARS! This one I am definitely going to get around to reading. When I'll get to it, I don't know. But I have heard so many good things about this series!
Wither by Lauren DeStefano
I am really torn on this one. I own this whole series and I think it sounds really interesting. But I remember recently this author was really awful to someone or something and I decided I didn't really wanna support her. I don't remember exactly the incident, but I immediately put these books in my trade pile. I might still read them since I already have them, but just not buy any more of her books.
Verdict: Tentatively Keep
Shades of Earth by Beth Revis
Across the Universe #3
Since I have not actually read the first one yet and don't know if I'll actually for sure like it, I probably don't need the sequel clogging up my TBR, especially since I don't even own it.
Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver
Lauren Oliver is one of my auto buy authors for her YA books. I am interested in reading this book of hers, but not so interested that I would make it a priority.
The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver
Once again, love Lauren Oliver, still probably won't make this particular book a priority.
Incarnate by Jody Meadows
I loved The Orphan Queen by Jodi. So far it's the only book of hers that I've read, but I definitely plan to try this series. I have the first two books and I'm basically just waiting until I get the third book so that I can binge the whole series.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
I have finally read started reading some of Maggie's books and I absolutely loved them. I have heard really good things about this book as well AND I have a copy of it so I will definitely be reading it!
Starting TBR #: 436
What do you think of my choices? Have you read any of these books? Would you have kept any of the ones I removed or removed any I kept?
