Down the TBR #14

 

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story 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?

 

Going with another 15 books this week.   Most that are being removed  are because I really don’t remember adding them.  So if there is no reason below the picture, that is why I took out that book.

      1. Ugh, I know that feeling. I’ve been meaning to reread some Lauren Oliver books, but I also still have Replica sitting on my bookcase staring me down. There just isn’t enough time!
