Down The TBR Hole #39


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


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.








Don’t Stay Up Late   It’s R.L. Stine, so I’ll always give these books a chance.  KEEP

Deliver Us  I need to read a book on The Texas Killing Fields   KEEP

REMOVE the other 3




REMOVE ALL 5  (I may add A Head Full of Ghosts again later.  I was torn.)



I kept 2 and removed 13 this week.

  1. The only one that I wouldn’t have been able to get rid of is “Still Alice.” I want to get around to reading that badly, so badly that I found out that I accidently bought 2 copies of it. Go brain for forgetting that you have a copy of a book. Great job of getting some books off your TBR!


  2. Ok, I gave it a go. Removed:
    1. Under The Never Sky
    2. The Weekenders
    4.Stealing Snow
    5. Rebels of the Sand
    6.Before I Fall
    7. Wintersong
    8. The Girl with All the Gifts
    9.Broken Things

    Please let me know if any of these are really really good and need to be added back in lol.
