Down The TBR #19

 

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.

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.

My books for Netgalley & Edelweiss

 

I realized that I have quite a few books I still need to read for both of these and I still keep requesting more.  I thought it might be fun to share my list of books that haven’t been released yet.  Hopefully this pushes me to read them and gives me a list of the release dates.  I try to read and review them before they come out, preferably a month before.  So right now I’m reading the ones that come out in March/early April.

 

I’ll start with Edelweiss because that list is bigger.

WWW Wednesday July 26, 2017

Decided to try this one out from Sam at Taking on a World of Words .

The three W’s are:  What are you currently reading?  What did you just finish reading? What are you reading next?

I am currently reading Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson. 

12924326

This is the story of Tiger Lily and Peter Pan that starts off before Wendy ends up in Neverland.  I’m almost halfway through and Wendy hasn’t arrived yet.  So far there is a friendship growing between Tiger Lily and Peter Pan, but it’s starting to hint at more.

The last book I finished was Invictus by Ryan Graudin.

33152795

Invictus is a time travel book about a boy named Far and his crew on the Invictus.  Far works for a shady guy to go back in time and steal items that wouldn’t be missed.  When on the Titanic, he runs into another time travel thief, Eliot, who has a huge surprise for Far about his past and the future of the world.  Full review of Invictus.

I’m honestly not sure what I’m reading next.  I rarely pick ahead of time unless I have an ARC waiting to be read and reviewed.  I’m currently waiting on a few to be approved, so I won’t pick my next read until I finish Tiger Lily.  I also like to wait and see what my mood is at the time.  

Did you do WWW Wednesday?  If so, post your link in the comments so I can see your answers, too. If you’ve read any of these books, share your thoughts (no spoilers please) below.
