Down the TBR Hole – 14

My guilt has kicked in and told me that I can’t keep avoiding another culling of my ridiculous TBR forever, so here I am. Back again with a list of books from my Goodreads TBR that is now a whopping 1,072 books (don’t judge me, I added more books to my TBR since last week)! I thought I’d make it clear again that just because it’s on my Goodreads TBR doesn’t actually mean I own copies of the book (that’d be way ridiculous even for me)! Let’s see what we can get rid of today, eh?

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 synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go

Verdict: Keep

The Wind Singer: This sounds like it’d be a really good fantasy!
Seraphina: Medieval mathematical dragons, you say?! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
The Year of the Runaways: Synopsis has piqued my interest enough to stay!
Eligible: Ermagerd, Pride and Prejudice retelling! ๐Ÿ˜ And it’s part of a series?!
Here I Am: Almost kicked this off my actual TBR today but decided to keep it after reading a bit of it!
The Mothers: Read a great review for this a few weeks back and decided to give it a go!
The Nix: Feel like this might go over my head but also very curious to try it!
Age of Myth: Loved what I’ve read of Sullivan before so curious to read his other books!
The Underground Railroad: Read Whitehead for the first time in January and loved his writing–want more!
Homegoing: I’ve heard so so so many positive things about this book. Really want to read it!

Verdict: BYE-BYE-BYE!

Tropic of Cancer: It might be a classic but it just really doesn’t appeal to me anymore (at all)?
History of Wolves: Sounds really interesting but also like it’d be quite slow and melancholy… Not my mood?
The Smoke Scented Girl: It does sound interesting but not enough to keep on my TBR!
The Impostor Queen: It’s just not calling out to me like it did before…
The Association of Small Bombs: Doesn’t sound like it’s for me anymore.

This week I managed to wave off 5/15 books… Okay, so I didn’t too well this week but the books I kept I really do want to read (and hopefully for some of them soon)! This brings my Goodreads TBR down to: 1,067 books! ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. Ooh yay! Glad to hear you enjoyed Seraphina! It sounds so interesting ๐Ÿ˜€ And yes, I’ve heard so many amazing things about Homegoing. I definitely want to tick it off the list soon! Fingers crossed we both enjoy it ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ

    1. OOPS. Haha I didn’t even notice that ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆ It didn’t end up being that hard of a choice — it’s going bye bye. But clearly I need to double check my posts before posting! Haha
      And it’d be a dream to get my TBR to 100! Haha there are just too many books!? I really like the “want-to-read” button ๐Ÿ˜œ
