Down The TBR Hole #15

Web

Hey guys! I can’t believe we are coming to an end of 2017. There are only two more Down The TBR Holes left. I have been having such a fun time clearing my TBR list. It’s so nice to see the numbers go down. Plus I’ve been reading a lot more thanks to audiobooks so that’s helping as well. Now let’s dive in!

  • 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.


A Child Called ItA Child Called It By Dave Pelzer

This is a book I’ve been hearing about for years. I think I’m going to pass on this. I know it’s about an upsetting subject matter and it’s only going to upset.

Judgement: Go

 

 

 


We Need to Talk About KevinWe Need to Talk About Kevin By Lionel Shriver

This is a book I actually own. I’ve been wanting to read this for a while so I can watch the movie. I feel I haven’t read it because I’m worried I won’t like it. I’m going to give this book a chance. Hopefully I can get to it sometime next year.

Judgement: Keep

 

 


Requiem For a DreamRequiem for a Dream By Hubert Selby Jr.

I think the main reason I added this to list because it takes place in Brooklyn. I just reread the description of the book and I don’t think this is a book for me. The description seems interesting but there are so many other books I want to read.

Judgment: Go

 

 


RantRant By Chuck Palahniuk

I want to keep this because I enjoy Chuck’s books. This one seems super interesting. Next year I plan on reading the ones I currently own by him.

Judgement: Keep

 

 

 


Still AliceStill Alice By Lisa Genova

I’ve been wanting to read this book for such a long time. I wanna read it to see the movie. I am keeping this on my list because it has amazing reviews from all my friends. So I trust that I’ll enjoy this one.

Judgement: Keep

 


CrankCrank By Ellen Hopkins

I have been wanting to read an Ellen Hopkins book for so long! I probably won’t get to this one this year. Thankfully Riveted has one of her books for free next week so I will be checking that out.

Judgment: Keep

 

 


A Spool of Blue ThreadA Spool of Blue Thread By Anne Tyler

I think the main reason I added this book is because I kept seeing it online. I don’t have any interest in this book.

Judgment: Go

 

 

 


The Princess BrideThe Princess Bride By William Goldman

I recently watched the full movie not to long ago. I loved it so much. I have been wanting to pick up the book for a while now. I hope to get to it sometime next year. I kinda wish I asked for it for Christmas.

Judgment: Keep

 

 


CartwheelCartwheel By Jennifer duBois

So I went into this saying I was going to remove this from my list but I reread the summary. It sounds super interesting. It does have a bit of mixed reviews. If I end up picking it up and don’t like it, I’ll just DNF it.

Judgement: Keep

 

 


I'd Know You AnywhereI’d Know You Anywhere By Laura Lippman

The summary sounds super interesting. I am willing to give this book a shot.

Judgement: Keep

 

 


I am happy to see my list get smaller and smaller. This week I only got rid of three books but three is better than none. I am excited to see what next week entails.

Do you guys think I made the right decision getting rid of the books I did? Do you guys see any books that you enjoy? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Down The TBR Hole #14

Web

Hey guys! I am so excited for Down the TBR Hole. For the longest time I have been talking about how I want to get out of the 700s. Well I am offically at 690 books on my TBR. So I’m happy about that. I would love to get to 650 by the end of the year. I’m not sure if that is possible with how many weeks we have left. So let’s do this!!

  • 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. Continue reading “Down The TBR Hole #14”
