down the TBR hole

Down the TBR hole #6!

Web

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lost In A Story (along with the pretty graphic!) The idea is to help slim down your Goodreads TBR, because we all know how large and endless that list becomes!


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:Photo_2018-12-25_11-00-47_AM.png

  1. The Casual Vacancy : by J.K. Rowling
    • Not going to lie, I actually tried to read this. I just couldn’t do it. I was hoping maybe once I got older I could read it but I don’t know if that day will ever come. I don’t think this is a story that would interest me the way Harry Potter did unfortunately.
      • Judgement: GO
  2. Blind : by Rachel DeWoskin
    • This is a story about a girl who loses her eyesight in a horrific accident and has to relearn how to do everything in her life and it sounds empowering but also tragically sad and I don’t know if I can handle that in my life.
      • Judgement: GO
  3. Dreamology : by Lucy Keating
    • This was clearly added at a much different time in my life because this is young adult contemporary/romance and I just can’t anymore. It’s too cheesy.
      • Judgement: GO
  4. Bone Gap : by Laura Ruby
    • After reading the synopsis I now know my initial idea of what this book was about was completely wrong and I’m actually interested in the idea of this town with a magical gap where people go missing. Reviews also are very positive and this has a fantasy/magical realism twist to it and I’m all about that.
      • Judgement: KEEP
  5. American Gods : by Neil Gaiman
    • Even though this has been on my TBR for YEARS I still want to read this! I have heard such great things about it and I’m also very intrigued by the show, I hope to read this soon.
      • Judgement: KEEP

That’s it for this week’s down the TBR hole! This one actually surprised me because I kept two of the 5 books, Bone Gap and American Gods! I am getting rid of The Casual Vacancy, Blind, and Dreamology. See you next week for post #7!
