Down the TBR Hole – 03

We’re back with another episode of Down the TBR Hole! Y’all, I’m proud to say that I’m down to 1,016 books (four lower than last count). PROUD PANDA ๐ŸผThat said, this week is going to be a really quick post of five books because life!

Down the TBR Hole is a weekly book meme created by the wonderful Lia @ Lost in a Story that attempts to organize our ridiculously long Goodreads TBR list by choosing either to keep or eliminate the books weโ€™ve saved on there. Here’s how it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youโ€™re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopsesย of the books
  • Decide: keep itย or should it go

Verdict: Keep

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. The title alone has me hooked and wanting to read this. The premise also totally sounds like something I’ll absolutely love. Who doesn’t love a good SFF romance!?

The Thief Taker by C.S. Quinn. I love historical fiction and enjoy a good dark murder mystery, so I’m really digging the sounds of this one!

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. So… I tried reading Americanah and just couldn’t get into it at the time; I put it down and still haven’t picked it back up again yet. But this is one of Adichie’s most widely praised books and I feel like I might really like it, so I’m planning to give it a chance!

Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Same as above really.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. So I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I can’t remember whether I’ve read this or not. I think I might have read this in school but I actually can’t remember either ๐Ÿ™ˆI know the story though because I’ve seen the movie but I also know that it freaked me out and gave me a little bit of anxiety hahaha


This week I reviewed 5 and got rid of…. NONE! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Yeah, I’m not booting any of these off my TBR for now… but who knows how I will feel later on if I don’t get to them anytime soon!

Have you read any of these books? How easy is it to cull your TBR list? Leave me a comment and let’s chat!

  1. If you had kicked off Adichie there would have been words!!!!!!!!!! ahahahaha I have read four out of the five of these… guesses to which one I haven’t……………………………………………. (hint I don’t do dark and murdery!!!) XDDDDDDDDDDDD Under The Never Sky is a fun series, it’s actually the book that one of my dearest bookish friends Gabby and I bonded over… and I think it’s like four years later now and we co-moderate a YA book group together on goodreads (and rant and rave about the world at large together….) so my point…if I ever get to it… is that it’s a fun series and I have fond memories of it… BUT… it’s quite dated now Dini. Do you ever feel like books have a moment in time??? Especially YA fantasy. And much and all as I loved books 1 and 2, book 3 was a bit disappointing and the ending was quite a flat old flop-fest! So if you were looking to kick off a book from your TBR I would say choose that one… and the dark murdery thing because darkness!! Murdery things!!! NIGHTMARES DINI!!! As for Jane Eyre that book is a flawless masterpiece that demands your immediate attention!!!
