down the TBR hole

Down the TBR hole #19!

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:


  1. Walk on Earth a Stranger : by Rae Carson
    • I don’t know how to feel about this one, or numbers 2 and 3 for that matter either since those are the sequels. Walk on Earth a Stranger is a fantasy/paranormal take on the California Gold Rush and like, it sounds super intriguing but also, some reviews are not stellar 😬
      • Judgement: GO
  2. Like A River Glorious : by Rae Carson
    • Again, this is the sequel. I think I’ve decided to let these go because I have so many upcoming books to read plus all the ones I already own, I don’t have time for something I’m not sure I’ll enjoy.
      • Judgement: GO
  3. Into the Bright Unknown : by Rae Carson
    • See #1 and #2
      • Judgement: GO
  4. Artemis : by Andy Weir
    • Gah I just don’t know. I loved The Martian by Andy Weir so much but I’ve been hesitant to read Artemis because I’ve heard it is nowhere near as good and that it actually has very poor representation for women. I think I’m going to let this one go.
      • Judgement: GO
  5. The Upside of Unrequited : by Becky Albertalli
    • Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance. Need I say more?
      • Judgement: GO

WOW okay I haven’t had a week like this in a long time 🤷‍♀️ I wasn’t anticipating letting Artemis go but the more I thought about it the more it made sense I wouldn’t enjoy it. Same with the others. What do you think of my choices to let everything go?

  1. I agree with your decision Artemis. I was incredibly annoyed with that book – which was weird because I enjoyed The Martian. Not worth it in my opinion.

      1. Basically – and it’s also clear he doesn’t know how to write women at all. She’s in her mid-twenties but acts like a twelve-year-old boy. I feel like the plot could have been great if it was more well-written but what can you do.
