Down the TBR Hole #30


Hey guys! It’s time for another Down the TBR Hole which was created by Lia @Lost In A Story! It’s officially my 30th post of Down The TBR. It’s been so much fun going through and getting rid of my books. I’m almost under 600 books which is so great. Maybe I can get under 500 by the end of the year. Now let’s see how today goes.

  • 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.

The Perfect CrimeA Perfect Crime By Peter Abrahams

So this book sounds interesting. Then it has the line that this is written by Stephen King’s favorite American suspense novelist. So that caught my attention. I’m interested in checking this out.

Trust No OneTrust No One By Paul Cleave

This is another one that sounds super interesting. I am very interested in reading it right away. The library by my house has it on the hold shelves so I hopefully will be able to pick it up today.

Dangerous BoysDangerous Boys By Abigail Haas

I read Dangerous Girls by Abigail a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. When I saw she had written another book I got so excited. I need to get the ebook of this.

The RuiningThe Ruining By Anna Collomore

I’ve mentioned in the past there is just something about covers with people in water and the pool that I have to add them to my list. The summary doesn’t really pull me in. It also seems like this book is either hit or miss. I’m going to pass.

Judgement: Go



Cruel SummerCruel Summer By James Dawson

See what I mean about covers with people in the water? I think the plot sounds interesting and it has good reviews. I’ll keep it on my list.

Judgement: Keep




At the Water's EdgeAt the Water’s Edge By Sara Gruen

I’d heard good things about this book so when I saw it at the library book sale I bought it. It’s not really a genre I like. The plot does sound pretty cool. Them going to hunt the Loch Ness monster. I think I’m going to give it a chance.

Judgement: Keep



Pretty BabyPretty Baby By Mary Kubica

This is another book I found at the library book sale. I read one of Mary’s books in the past. I didn’t love it so I still want to check out her other books.

This is How it Really SoundsThis Is How It Really Sounds By Stuart Archer Cohen

Rereading the plot of this book. I’m going to have to pass on it. Not really interested in it.

Judgement: Go




The Rosie ProjectThe Rosie Project By Graeme Simsion

I have been wanting to check this book out for a while now. I’ve almost picked it up at Book Outlet a couple of times. I’m still interested in reading it. Then checking out the movie after.

Judgement: Keep



The Secret GardenThe Secret Garden By Frances Hodgson Burnett

This is a beloved children’s classic that I’ve always heard about but never read. I really would like to read.

  1. I loved The Rosie Project, do recommend. Unfortunately the second part (The Rosie Effect) is very disappointing, so I would skip that and read The Rosie Project as a stand alone book. (That also saves some space on your TBR 😉)
