It’s 2020 and I’m back with my first Down the TBR Hole post of the year! As of right now, my Goodreads TBR is a whopping 1,034 books and I thought I’d make it clear that just because it’s on my Goodreads TBR, that doesn’t actually mean it’s on my physical or Kindle shelves (I wish I could afford to own that many books)! With that out of the way, I’m hoping to start the year off strong and dismiss a few more books on my list. Let’s see how I do today!
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:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go
All Is Not Forgotten
I don’t remember adding this one but I can’t get rid of it after reading that synopsis!
Why Not Me
Never watched anything with Kaling in it but I’ve seen a few of her interviews and she sounds cool.
This is a pretty popular book and a lot of my GR friends have rated it highly. It sounds really good too!
Survival in Auschwitz
I love historical fiction especially from this period. This sounds gut wrenching but like an important read.
The Subtle Knife
I don’t know why I didn’t continue on reading this series after finishing Northern Lights. I will!
The Boy on the Bridge
I couldn’t wait for this to be released after reading and loving The Girl With All the Gifts. I’m still keen to check it out!
I actually bought this one when I couldn’t find Boy on the Bridge but haven’t read it yet. It honestly sounds like the creepy AF kind of horror that I’m not good with (i.e. ghosties) but I do like to torment myself it seems 😅
A Streetcar Named Desire and Other Plays
I’m just not interested anymore? Maybe one day… But for now, bye-bye!
Gateway to Fourline
Sounds kinda interesting but also not really feeling it either?
Whisper of Souls
Same as above…
Okay, well, that wasn’t as strong of a start as I hoped it would be. I genuinely want to read all of these books though, so I’m hoping they’ll be taken off the TBR list at some point in the not-too-distant future. As I only managed to remove 3/10 books this week, my GR TBR is now down to: 1,031 books. Let’s hope that next week’ll be better!
