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 that will be battling for a place on my TBR Shelf...
Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Fire and Thorns #1
I definitely still want to read this book. This whole series is sitting on my shelf, just waiting for me to pick it up. I should really focus on more of my backlist books because they are taking over.
Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
Something Strange and Deadly #1
I just realized that last week on this list I had Strange and Ever After. One of my thoughts going through this was that I didn't need sequels on my TBR if I haven't even read the first/previous ones. So I'm going to keep this one and remove Strange and Ever After from my list til I've gotten that far in the series.
A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
I am all about Mindy McGinnis lately and this book sounds so good. And that cover is so nice. And it's sitting in my pile of books that I am going to reach for SOON.
Armada by Ernest Cline
This book still sounds interesting, but I don't think it's one that I'm going to actively try to read. I'm not very pumped about it anymore.
Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons
Article 5 #2
Seeing as I haven't even read the first one in this series, I probably don't need this one on my list!
Altered by Gennifer Albin
Crewel World #2
I haven't even read the first book in this series yet. And I'm really not that interested in it anymore. So I'll definitely be removing this series from my TBR.
Unraveled by Gennifer Albin
Crewel World #3
Gotta unravel this one from my TBR.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
I just read a review of this book that said it was a good retelling of Beauty and the Beast and I think it's gonna get picked up REAL soon now.
The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows
The Orphan Queen #2
I absolutely loved The Orphan Queen. I don't know why I haven't gotten around to picking this one up yet.
Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken
The Darkest Minds #1.5, 2.5, 3.5
Seeing as The Darkest Minds is my all time favorite series, you wouldn't think that there would be a book that's actually that's still on my TBR, would you? I have read the first two novellas in this series, but I have yet to read the last one! I really need to do that!
Total after last post: 428
Total at start of this post: 434
Total after removals: 429
It would probably feel like I was getting somewhere with this meme if I stopped adding new books to my TBR, huh?
