Hey guys! It’s time for another Down The TBR Hole which was created by the lovely Lost In A Story. I really enjoyed doing last week’s clean. I’m hoping this week’s will be as successful. It’s hard for me to get rid of these first 100 books because these are all books I own but some of them I’ve had for years now and probably need to let go of. Here is how it works:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
The fact that I will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR.
Guardians of The Galaxy, Volume 1: Cosmic Avengers By Brian Michael Bendis
This is a comic so this is something I could finish within a couple of hours.
The Cuckoo’s Calling By Robert Galbriath
This is another book that I have the first and second book. I feel because of that I don’t want to get rid of it. So I’ll give this a chance.
Mr. Mercedes By Stephen King
Okay but do you see this cover?!?! I love it!
P.S. I Love You By Cecelia Ahern
This is a book I’ve really wanted to try. I want to watch the movie after I read the book.
Sybil By Flora Rheta Schreiber
I saw the movie years ago in school and found it super interesting. I had to get the book to get more details about her.
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West By Gregory Maguire
I really love the play a lot. I thought I would wanna check out the play but I honestly think I’m going to pass.
Creep By Jennifer Hillier
This book seems super interesting and seems like something I would really enjoy.
Delirium By Lauren Oliver
I was rereading the summary of this one and it doesn’t really interest me anymore.
The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo By Stieg Larsson
This is a series I’ve heard a lot of great things about. I wanna give it a chance still.
If I Stay By Gayle Forman
I really want to read a book by Gayle Forman. I’ve heard a lot about them. This one just doesn’t interest me.
This week I made so more progress. I got rid of 3 books which in total now has brought to have removed 7 books in total which I have to say is overall pretty good. If I can remove a couple from my TBR list every week then that’s fine with me. I do feel it’s been a bit tough picking which ones to get rid of. I also feel like I have to get rid of something every week just because but I know I don’t have to. It is nice seeing my list slowly shrink. Already can’t wait to see what books next week tackles!
