Down the TBR Hole is a meme that began at Lost in a Story. My never-ending, ever-growing TBR list on Goodreads definitely needs some help and this meme was designed to do just that! What a fun way to downsize my to-read list while involving you guys – you can let me know if I’ve made a big mistake and try to convince me to go another way!
Here are the rules (quoted from Lost in a Story):
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
I’m going to do 5 books at a time (and I’m going to try to do this every one to two weeks) starting from the very first books I added on Goodreads. Right now, my to-read list is sitting at 948 books. (Spoiler alert: this is really hard!!!)
Changeling (Order of Darkness #1) by Philippa Gregory
I read Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl YEARS ago and loved it. But these days, I’m not the hugest fan of historical fiction. So, this is a tough one for me. I think I’m going to keep this one, since it’s YA and I’ve enjoyed this author in the past. I’m not completely confident in this choice, though.
Glitch (Glitch #1) by Heather Anastasiu
This one had a whole lot of hype behind it when I added it to Goodreads so long ago. It still sounds interesting to me and I love a good dystopian novel, so I’ll keep this one.
The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult
Anything Jodi Picoult is an automatic keep! I have yet to be disappointed by her books.
Clouded Vision by Linwood Barclay
I’ve read three books by this author, with one standout. The first book I read by him was No Time for Goodbye and I loved it. I thought it was so good. Then I went on to read two others, Fear the Worst and A Tap on the Window. Neither was bad, but they didn’t wow me like that first one did. This is so hard! I think I’ll keep this one just because that first book I read was so good, so I need to keep trying this author!
The Accident by Linwood Barclay
Same deal as the previous book!
Okay, so I didn’t end up getting any books off my list this week, but I think that’s okay! Hopefully I’ll take some off next week. I can tell already that it’s going to be really hard to let books go!!!
