Hello and welcome to another DOwn the TBR Hole post from me. I am going to be making these, at least for now, a bi-weekly thing here on my blog until I am able to get through my entire list and I might actually make it about 20 books instead of just limiting myself to 10 books, sorry Lia I am changing the rules! Anyway, on with the decluttering!
- 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?
The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night by Jen Campbell
Added on Feb 12, 2018. This is actually a short story collection that appear to all be magical and possibly has the potential to turn dark. I feel like this might be perfect the Halloween time so I am going to be keeping this on my TBR.
The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee
Added on Feb 17, 2018. This one I am going to say is me being a dummy, I added this book to my TBR without reading the first book or even owning it. I am going to be removing it for the time being and look into the first book. Oops!
I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon
Added on Feb 17, 2018. I feel like this might be the grown up version of the animated Anastasia movie, but if I am being honest I just want to rewatch the animated series. So I am going to be removing this from my TBR.
Man-Eater: The Life and Legend of an American Cannibal by Harold Schechter
Added on Mar 04, 2018. I am going to be honest this was only added to my TBR because it was kinda interesting, I mean look at the title, and it was free on Amazon. Am I actually going to read it, most likely no. So I am going to be removing it.
Not Perfect by Elizabeth LaBan
Added on Mar 04, 2018. This is in the same category as the book above I picked it up because it was free and kinda sounds interesting, but honestly I am never going to be reading it. I am going to be removing it.
Heart Berries by Terese Marie Mailhot
Added on Mar 07, 2018. Okay, this just seems like such a powerful memior that I really need to read it. Please click through on the title to read it because I cannot do it justice. I am going to be keeping this book on my TBR.
Invitation to a Bonfire by Adrienne Celt
Added on Mar 14, 2018. I am going to be removing this book from my TBR because I have not really been in the mood to pick up a thriller as of late.
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
Added on Mar 19, 2018. I honestly have no idea why I added this to my TBR. I mean there must have been a reason, I just cannot remember at all. It is not my normal reading so I am going to be removing it.
The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill
Added on Mar 28, 2018. I added this when I was really into retellings of fairytales and mermaids. I currently am not really into mermaid stories and I have also seen some negative reviews by people I have similar reading tastes to, so I will be removing this one.
Howards End by E.M. Forster
Added on Apr 05, 2018. After reading the description I can see that this would be an interesting look into society at the time, but I really do not see myself reading it. I am going to be removing this book.
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
Added on Apr 06, 2018. I have enojoyed the works of Wilkie Collins in the past and I am in the mood for a good murder mystery from time to time and I will be picking this up. I am going to be keeping this on my TBR shelf.
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Added on Apr 06, 2018. This is a story I was really excited about, but put off buying for one reason or another. At this point I have heard that some people have not enjoyed it who have pretty much the same taste in books as I do. Due to this, I am going to be removing it from my TBR.
Alone in Berlin by Hans Fallada
Added on Apr 18, 2018. This sounds like a very interesting story revolving around living under the pressure of the growing Nazi party during WWII. I am going to be keeping this on my TBR.
Skin Deep by Liz Nugent
Added on Apr 21, 2018. I am going to be keeping this book on my TBR because I finally bought it earlier this year. I am really excited to be reading within the next month or so.
Moody Bitches by Julie Holland
Added on Apr 30, 2018. At this point I don’t see myself reading this book for a few reasons. The most important being I am not longer interested in reading about moodiness in women being caused by medicine. I am going to be removing this from my TBR.
In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire
Added on May 12, 2018. I am going to be keeping this on my TBR because I want to continue my reading of the Wayward Children series and this is the next one I need to read.
The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
Added on May 14, 2018. The only reason I am going to be removing this from my TBR shelf is due to the fact I don’t really have an interest in starting a new series that isn’t one I am really pulled into when reading the description.
When Einstein Walked with Gödel: Excursions to the Edge of Thought by Jim Holt
Added on May 28, 2018. While this is a very interesting topic, exploring more scientific theories and what not. Currently I do not have the time to read such a dense and time consuming book even though the content really interests me. I am going to be removing this book from my TBR.
Wild Embers: Poems of Rebellion, Fire and Beauty by Nikita Gill
Added on Jun 06, 2018. I have read multiple collections of hers and I have enjoyed them quite a bit, I am going to be keeping this one on my TBR to enjoy in the future.
soft in the middle by Shelby Eileen
Added on Jun 29, 2018. This is another poetry collection, but I don’t think I will be keeping it on my TBR at this time. I think I added this to my TBR because it met a challenge, but I read something else to meet it. I will be removing this from my list.
Total Tossed: 24
