Down The TBR Hole #13

Web

Hey guys! It’s been two weeks since I did my last Down The TBR Hole. I am so sad because I know I could have been under 700 by now but it’s okay. I’m hoping after this one I can get it down to the 600s. 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.

September Book Haul

Hey guys!! I decided to go through all the books I got in September. It turns out I ended up getting a lot more than I expected. So I decided to post about my haul. Majority of these I ended up not paying for. I think only 5 of them I actually bought. The rest I won in giveaways, some from when my friend sent me a Nocturnal Readers box, and lastly some from B-fest. So let’s see what books I got last month. Continue reading “September Book Haul”

Down The TBR Hole #5

Web

Hey guys! I decided I would start doing Down The TBR Hole which was created by the lovely Lost In A Story. It’s officially my 5th cleaning out. I’ve slowly being adding more books to my list but it’s nice going through 10 books every week. I love seeing my TBR list slowly drop to a number I hope one day will be manageable. 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

Down the TBR List #2

Web

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.

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!

June Wrap-Up

Hey guys so I gotta admit for a little while during this month I was in a bit of a slump. There were a couple books I read and I didn’t end up enjoying as much as I wanted. Things have also been really busy because I started a new job so I don’t have much time to read but I’ve been trying to get in reading time whenever I can. I also went to Book Con in June which ended up being a lot of fun. I also got some books from there that I can’t wait to read. So let’s dive into the books I read for the month!

Top Ten: Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t

Hey Guys!! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s themse is Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start But Haven’t. I do have to say some series do intimidate me. I do try to stick with trilogy but I am willing to try out a longer series as long as it isn’t too ridiculous in the amount of books involded. I do have a problem finishing some so I need to work on that in general. Anyway here are some that I’ve wanted to read and need to stop putting off.
