Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story, and I found it over at Howling Libraries. It looked like a fun and productive way to finally make a dent in that Goodreads TBR. My Goodreads TBR isn’t as big as Isabelle’s, but I also wanted to see if I could make a dent in mine. I’m sure there are plenty of books on there that I don’t even remember adding! Let’s see what I’ll make of it this time around. I decided to go with 10 books at a time so lets get started! I chose 10, because my TBR isn’t that big on Goodreads, so I don’t want to be done too quickly, haha.

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 or 15 or 20, if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Current “to-read” shelf: 301

Books 1-5:

1574829315801235158014371611865516130223

Eighty Days Series – Vina Jackson

The first five books on this shelf are all from the same series and author, so I will do them all at once. I added these I think after seeing them at a bookstore in 2013 when I was also into Fifty Shades. Looking at the descriptions now and the ratings, I don’t think I will ever pick them up. They don’t interest me anymore.

Decision: Remove

Books 6-10

Okay, my lists are rather boring this week. The last five are all Nicholas Sparks books, haha.

The Notebook – Nicholas Sparks

This has been on my list for ages and I have seen the movie quite a few times. I still don’t own this book, but I do love this author’s books. These are the perfect reads for the beach or just a relaxing moment, so I still need to get to this one.

Decision: Keep

A Walk to Remember – Nicholas Sparks

I think out of all of the books that have been filmed from this author, A Walk To Remember is my favorite. So it’s not hard to decide that this one needs to stay and I still want to read it.

Decision: Keep

Dear John – Nicholas Sparks

I think I am basically repeating myself in this post, haha. I keep saying I loved the movie and in this case, once again, I did. I haven’t read many books like this lately, but they still interest me. Once again, something I still need to read.

Decision: Keep

The Last Song – Nicholas Sparks

This is actually one I’m not sure about. Out of all of these books, this one seems the least interesting to me. There really hasn’t been a book by him that I hated, so I do want to give it a chance.

Decision: Keep

The Lucky One – Nicholas Sparks

Another one that I have seen, but still need to read. To keep it short and not repeat myself more than necessary, I will say it’s sticking around, haha.

Decision: Keep

Removal Percentage this week: 50%

Even though this was a rather boring start to this post, I think I did pretty good. Have you read any of these books? Did I make the right decision?
