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!
Here is the next set of books I have to decide on!
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
This is one that I am definitely looking forward to reading. I have a copy of this one, but it's mass market and I don't really like mass market paperbacks. But I really want to watch this tv show and my mom keeps telling me I have to read this series.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I feel like I'm not as excited about this book as I was when I first heard about it. I still think it sounds interesting, but I'm probably not going to go out of my way to read it. I have a friend who has it so if I really get the urge, maybe I'll borrow it from them. But also maybe not.
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Red Queen #2
I don't know why I haven't read this one yet. I have so many 2016 books sitting on my shelf that I ordered and never read yet. I also have been kind of spoiled for this book and that's probably part of why I haven't read it yet. But I loved Red Queen and am excited to read this sequel.
Confess by Colleen Hoover
I have read one Colleen Hoover book before and I quite liked it, but after the recent stuff on Twitter about her books, I'm not as excited about them anymore. I got a few of her books because I wanted to read some more NA stuff, but I also prefer healthier relationships in my books. I'll still probably read the ones that I have, but depending on what I see when I read them, I might not go out of my way to read anything else by her.
Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher
Never Never #1
Never Never Part Two by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher
Never Never #2
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
Probably won't go out of my way to read these, but they do sound good. If I get a wild hair I might, but like I said, I'm just not as excited about them as I was before.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Shades of Magic #1
I have heard nothing but good things about Schwab's writing so I really need to get around to reading this. I have a few of her books and I haven't read any of them. As I write these posts out, it really makes me feel like a book hoarder when I say, "Yeah, I have this book, but I haven't read it."
Remembrance by Meg Cabot
The Mediator #7
I LOVED the Mediator series. I am so sad that I donated all of my books to a used bookstore because now that this book is out I want to reread them. I am so excited about this one!!
Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard
Something Strange and Deadly #3
I have signed copies of this whole trilogy from a signing I went to last year that I need to get to! Everyone seems to love this series and it doesn't feel as hyped as Truthwitch so maybe I should read these ASAP to get myself more psyched to read Windwitch.
Total after last post: 430
Total at start of this post: 433

What are your thoughts on the books that I decided to keep or remove this week? Have you read any of these?
