Down the TBR Hole #33

Hey guys! It’s time for another Down the TBR Hole which was created by Lia @Lost In A Story! I added a couple of books to my TBR but not too many. This week won’t be the week I go under 600 but hopefully next week will. Let’s see what this week has in store.

  • 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 Bachelorette PartyThe Bachlorette Party By Karen McCullah Lutz

I’m a huge fan of the movie Bridesmaids. This book gives me those kind of vibes. I see this book has some mixed reviews but I’m going to give it a chance. It seems like it could be a lot of fun.

The SwimmerThe Swimmer By Joakim Zander

I’m not sure how I found out about this book. The premise of it does sound very interesting. I think I want to keep it on my list and check it out.

Judgement: Keep

 

 

 


The Harder They ComeThe Harder They Come By T.C. Boyle

I think I added this because I really liked the cover. I read the summary of it and I’m not really interested in it.

Judgement: Go

 

 

 


Black SundayBlack Sunday By Thomas Harris

I read The Hannibal series by Thomas Harris (besides the last one) and I really liked it. I wanted to check out his other books. This sounds right up my alley. It does give me some Mr. Mercedes vibes a little so I really want to check this out.

Judgement: Keep

 

 


Little BeeLittle Bee By Chris Cleave

So my friend recommended this to me a while back. It’s been sitting on my shelf for a while. It doesn’t really seem like something I’d read. I did go through the book and saw she highlighted some stuff and it caught my eye. I want to give this book a try.

Judgement: Keep

 

 


The Last Winter of Dani LancingThe Last Winter of Dani Lancing By P.D. Viner

I see a lot of mixed reviews on this book so I am going to pass on it.

Judgement: Go

 

 

 


What She KnewWhat She Knew By Gilly Macmillan

This is a book I have been wanting to read for a while now. I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up yet. It is currently on sale for the ebook on amazon so I think I might get it. I have a coupon for an ebook.

Judgement: Keep

 

 


AliceAlice (The Chronicles of Alice) By Christina Henry

So a while back my boyfriend and I tried to read Alice in Wonderland. We couldn’t get into it. I saw someone talking about this and it seems very interesting. It also has a lot of good reviews from people I follow. I want to check it out.

Judgement: Keep

 

 


Slade HouseSlade House By David Mitchell

This is another book I’ve been wanting to read for a while. I almost picked it up at one point but I didn’t really want to read it on ebook.

Judgement: Keep

 

 

 


The Opposite of MeThe Opposite of Me By Sarah Pekkanen

I feel this was another book I added because of the cover. I don’t really have any interest in reading this anymore.

Judgement: Go

  1. Down the TBR Hole is a brilliant idea I’m definitely going to steal. 🙂 Little Bee is a good book. Alice by Christina Henry had glimmers of greatness but never quite came together. Gruesomeness aside, I think it just made me realize what a numbskull Alice is for eating and drinking things she shouldn’t.

    1. I love Down the TBR so much. It has helped me lower my TBR a lot. I wish I had come up with the idea myself. That’s a shame to hear about Alice. It seemed interesting but I’m sad to hear that it doesn’t come quiet together.
