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 1,088 books (don’t judge me, I added a lot 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 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
A Gentleman in Moscow: Been seeing great reviews for this lately. Very intrigued!
Lilac Girls: I’m a sucker for WWII historical fiction and this one sounds intense but good.
Underground Airlines: Holy that synopsis though 😱 This sounds so thrilling!
The Vegetarian: I WILL READ THIS BOOK, DAMNIT!
Prince of Thorns: I’ve heard amazing things about Lawrence’s fantasies! I’ve had this one for ages.
Red Rising: I really need to read this book soon. Everyone seems to love i!
Human Acts: Not sure if I’m ready to be shook but… I’m gonna keep this on here!
The Wonder: Sounds interesting but not enough to stay on my list?
Morning Star: Only removing this because I haven’t even read Red Rising yet! 🤣
Crosstalk: I still like the idea of this book but I honestly don’t know when if ever I’d actually pick it up.
The Circle: Feeling madly lukewarm about this and I’m hesitating to say buh-bye to it!
Gods and Generals: Um… I don’t even know how or why this is on my TBR? Really doesn’t sound like my jam!
Uglies: I’ve heard great things about this book but it just doesn’t entice me anymore. Sounds too angsty!
Free to Fall: Can’t decide about this one so I’m going to say bye coz I don’t know when I’d read it!
The Lonely Hearts Hotel: Actually thought I had already removed this from my list… LOL!
This week I managed to wave off 8/15 books… Not my best but not too bad as well! Reckon I really need to start kicking off more than 15 per post if I’m ever going to bring this mad TBR down 😂 This brings my Goodreads TBR to: 1,080 books! 😅
