Down the TBR Hole #15

This will only be my second post for this week. I had a busy past few days and the blog posts I had in mind to write and post – well let’s just say I never got around to writing them… So. Here we are with a Down the TBR Hole post!

If you’re newer here and don’t know what the heck Down the TBR Hole is, it’s a meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 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?

somedaysomedaymaybeSomeday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham

I’m a huge Gilmore Girls fan so when I found out Lauren Graham wrote a book I added it to my TBR pile. And I also found the book in a used bookstore for really cheap so it’s all ready for me to read! I just haven’t yet haha

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

talkingasfastasicanTalking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham

Added for the same reason as the last one haha. I just don’t own this one.

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

 

thejournalsofmaryshelleyThe Journals of Mary Shelley by Mary Shelley

I haven’t read Frankenstein yet but I want to read everything she writes because she’s my ancestor so I kind of feel like I owe it to her to read everything she’s written haha! And I like reading journals – the only one I’ve read is Anne Frank’s but I enjoyed it.

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

theblackpetalThe Black Petal by Dan C. Thompson

I was going to remove this because I didn’t remember what this was about, but then I read the description and I’m actually still interested in it! It sounds really cool and there are some great reviews from bloggers I trust.

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

suspendedSuspended by Sarah Noffke

This sounds really cool! I added this because the description gave me a Night Circus-esque feel. And if you didn’t already know, The Night Circus is one of my all-time favorite books.

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

theplacebetweenbreathsThe Place Between Breathes by An Na

I absolutely loved An Na’s other book A Step From Heaven, and this comes out next year which I’m so excited for (and honestly forgot about until now – oops). It sounds really cool though.

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

thevampirestalkerThe Vampire Stalker by Allison van Diepen

This actually sounds really cool! Okay, so basically, this girl is obsessed with this vampire dude – but he’s fictional – until he’s not and comes to life!

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

loveinbminorLove In B Minor by Elodie Nowodazkji

This kinda sounds cheesy haha. I don’t think I’d really be interested in reading this anymore.

Final Verdict: GO

 

 

 

extraordinarymeansExtraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider

I read her other book The Beginning of Everything and really enjoyed it. This book sounds interesting as well and I really like the cover.

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

the_noviceThe Novice by Taran Matharu

I’ve had this book nearly all year and haven’t read it yet but it sounds like a cool fantasy read and I absolutely love the cover so I’ll keep it.

Final Verdict: KEEP

 

 

Books Removed: 1

Books Kept: 9

TBR Total: 398

five more than last time cause I added some books since last week. yikes!

      Haha I knew I needed to get rid of something and Love in B Minor didn’t really seem to interest me anymore so it had to go. Me too! I keep forgetting it exists but I also love the books with circus-like vibes
