Down the TBR Hole #19

It’s been a month since I’ve done a Down the TBR Hole that I thought it would be a good time to do one again. My Want to Read shelf on Goodreads has increased again, so it’s time to take a look again!

Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story. It looked like a fun and productive way to finally make a dent in that Goodreads TBR. I went through my want-to-read shelf a little while ago but I think I was still to kind on a lot of books. 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!

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: 488 (my last post this was at 479, I can’t seem to keep this lower, haha)

Born to Endless Night & Angels Twice Descending – Cassandra Clare

In my last Down the TBR Hole, I had a few of these short stories as well. I’ve enjoyed the stories from Tales of the Shadowhunter Academy so far and need to finish them. Short stories don’t always add anything new to a series, but the ones that take place in this Shadowhunter world definitely do!

Keep

The Plains of Passage, The Shelters of Stone & The Land of Painted Caves – Jean M. Auel

It’s been quite awhile since I read the first three books in the Earth’s Children series. My grandmother bought them for me in Dutch and I remember enjoying them. That being said, it’s been so long since starting this series, I don’t really know what happened in the first three books. At the moment, I don’t think I will start this series again, so it’s going to go for now!

Remove

Happy Again – Jennifer E. Smith

This is What Happy Looks Like was such a cute story. As a big fan of contemporary books, I couldn’t put it down. Happy Again is a novella that takes us back to these main characters. I definitely want to read this one!

Keep

Another Day – David Levithan

Every Day was such an interesting read, so this companion novel seems like something I need to read. I know it’s almost the same story but told through Rhiannon’s eyes. Another Day is something I definitely want to give a try!

Keep

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – Jesse Andrews

I can’t believe this book came out in 2012 and I still haven’t read it. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a book I’ve heard plenty about. Wasn’t there also a movie made for this? I’m not completely sure anymore. Anyways, it definitely still seems like a book for me, but I don’t know when I’ll get a chance to read it!

Keep

As Simple as Snow – Gregory Galloway

If I’m honest, I don’t remember this book at all or where I heard about it. As Simple as Snow sounds interesting, but I don’t think I’ll keep this one. One of my Goodreads friends has marked it as to-read and no one has read it.

Remove

The End or Something Like That – Ann Dee Ellis

Another book I don’t remember at all! I added it to my TBR in 2015, so quite awhile ago. Even though this book sounds like something I’d really enjoy, I don’t see myself reading it now. And again, none of my Goodreads friends have read this one.

I did good this time around and removed half of the books I talked about. What do you think of my choices? Should I have kept any of these? Or should I have not kept a few? Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these!

    1. I think it’s a fun thing to do, because it’s nuts how many books you forget about that are on this list.

      Thanks for letting me know! And same here, I love seeing where I end up when a book is like that.
