Oh, hello. Am I really back with another Down the TBR Hole post after several weeks of purposely ignoring it? Why yes, I am 😬 It’s been a while, gentlefriends, but I’m back and since the last post where I ended with 1,005 books, I’m now starting with a whopping 1,022 books on my Goodreads TBR! Yeah, I kind of went on a mini add-spree yesterday… 😅 But let’s see how many of the 10 books I’ll say bye-bye-bye to this week! I’m hoping it’s at least one?
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 we’ve saved on there. Here’s how it works:
Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders
Did I mention my fascination with serial killers?
In Cold Blood
See above comment. But seriously, this is one true crime classic I really want to read!
I remember when this happened and how much it frightened me and how everyone wouldn’t stop talking about it. That was the first time I learned about how easy it was to get a gun in America.
The People in the Trees
I loved A Little Life so much and I’m keen to see whether I’ll love this one too. I also have the physical copy already.
Confessions of a Sociopath: A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight
I’ve had this one sitting on my shelf partially read for a really long time now… I started it but it’s on my ‘taking-a-break’ for now shelf because I struggle with NF. I will finish it though!
A Brief History of Seven Killings
I have several of Marlon James’ books on my shelf but his books really intimidate me… But I really want to read this!
I’ve wanted to read Lahiri’s books for a while now and I do have the physical copy of this so it’s staying!
The Monster of Florence
I’m interested but it’s not so high up on my true crime want-to-read list so off it goes! Might come back later though…
Whoever Fights Monsters: My Twenty Years Tracking Serial Killers for the FBI
This sounds hella interesting and up my alley of wanting to know more about serial killers’ minds but I think I’d rather watch Mind Hunter first… This might come back though!
I don’t know if this will be my jam and since it’s a helluva tome, I’m saying bye for now!
Final tally: 3/10 books were removed which isn’t great but at least I managed to remove something from my TBR this week, right?! 🤣
