Down The TBR #8


Down The TBR Hole is a meme that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

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 youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats 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 (or even more!) if youre 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?


Another week to try to reduce my TBR.  Let’s see how I do this week.  I’m going to try to do 15 again.



Nightworld  While I liked the books before this one, I doubt I’ll ever end up picking this up.




Would-Be Witch.  I love witch books, but I have quite a few other ones that I want to read.




The Nine Lives of Chloe King   This does still interest me.  No idea if I’ll ever get to it though.

KEEP (for now)



Wild   Hoping to eventually read this one.




Breaking The Silence   I don’t read too many books like this, but I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Diane Chamberlain so far.




The Midwife’s Confession  (see above book)




Three books from the Angeneu series.  I read the early books, but I’m kind of over them now.




Three more from the same series.




Another two from the same series.  How many books are there in this one?  I read quite a few of them, too.




Big Little Lies   I’ve liked Liane Moriarty’s books so far.



I removed 10 and kept 5 this week.  Not too bad.
