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 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 (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
As before, if there are no comments below the cover, I just don’t really remember adding the book to my list. I will be doing 15 again this week.
The World’s Most Haunted House by William J. Hall While this sounds good, the reviews aren’t that great, so I doubt I’ll end up reading it.
Icons by Margaret Stohl This sounds decent still, so I may give it a try at some point.
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah I don’t read too many books like this anymore, but it was recommended by my bff and I trust her.
Girl of Lies by Charles Sheehan Miles
In Doubt by Drusilla Campbell
Conversion by Katherine Howe I remember really wanting to read this when I added it, but then completely forgot about it.
Women’s Work by Kari Aguila
Bathing The Lion by Jonathan Carroll
Ghosts by Roger Clarke
Touchstone by Laurie R King
First Grave On The Right by Darynda Jones I’m a bit torn on this one. The ratings are good and I tend to enjoy a lot of these paranormal books.
KEEP (FOR NOW)
Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little Another one I’m torn on.
KEEP (FOR NOW)
The Magicians by Lev Grossman This sounds good, but the reviews are super mixed which makes me doubt I’ll ever pick it up.
Lock In by John Scalzi I was a bit torn on this one as well, but it still sounds good to me.
The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell
This week I kept 5 and removed 10. Have you read any of these books?
