down the TBR hole

Down the TBR hole #1!

Web

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lost In A Story (along with the pretty graphic!) and I saw it on meltotheany blog and wanted to give it a try! The idea is to help slim down your Goodreads TBR, because we all know how large and endless that list becomes! My TBR list on Goodreads is not huge (maybe around 250 books) so I may only do this twice a month, but you are free to do it as often as you like!


How it works:

→ Go to your Goodreads to be 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?

My 5 books:

  1.  Why Not Me? : by Mindy Kaling
    • I read Mindy’s first book and it was honestly okay and kind of funny but i’m past my phase of being obsessed with celebrities and having to read all their biographies.
      • Judgement: GO
  2.  The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks : by Rebecca Skloot
    • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks has been recommended to me dozens of times due to my science background and honestly, I’m not mad about it. This is the true story of Henrietta’s life and her cells being taken without her consent but which lead to numerous scientific breakthroughs and revelations. Were they wrong to take her cells? Someday i’ll find out when I read this!
      • Judgement: KEEP!
  3. Wild – From lost to found on the Pacific Crest Trail : by Cheryl Strayed
    • I literally added this to my TBR list because Reese Witherspoon starred in the movie. Again, celebrity phase, and I honestly don’t think I will ever read it because Fantasy is more my genre.
      • Judgement: GO
  4. Champion : by Marie Lu.
    • Nothing against Marie Lu but I have this feeling I added this to my TBR way after it came out and I will honestly never read it. I mean, it’s been on my TBR for 3 years and I haven’t thought of it since then so..
      • Judgement: GO
  5. Prodigy : by Marie Lu
    • Same. This just happens to be the book before Champion! Next time I do this tag I’m sure Legend (the first book in this series) will be involved!
      • Judgement: GO

Well this first round was relatively easy for me! So for my final tally I am going to keep The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Why Not Me?, Wild, Champion, and Prodigy are out!

Do you agree with my decisions? Why or why not?

I’m going to remove them from my Goodreads TBR right now! I hope you enjoyed this fun little post, I can’t wait to do it again!
