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.

Review of People Like Us by Dana Mele (arc)




People Like Us by Dana Mele


Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she’s reinvented herself entirely. Now she’s a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl’s body is found in the lake, Kay’s carefully constructed life begins to topple.

The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay’s finally backed into a corner, she’ll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make…not something that happened.

A Look At Some Of My Bookshelves


I thought I would do something a little different today and show off some of my bookshelves.  This isn’t all of them and nothing is really organized.  I’m hoping to take a weekend to move everything around, but I have no idea how I want to organize them yet.

I forgot to move my camera off the one shelf before taking pictures.  We have recently started collecting some pop vinyl and have more on the way.  I also don’t have a picture in the Aruba frame yet.  I need to get one printed out soon.
