Seeing how I keep adding new books to my Goodreads TBR, I decided to did this just a little more often than I have before. It’s been about two weeks since my last Down the TBR Hole and I’ve added 3 books to my want-to-read shelf. That isn’t much, but with Christmas only a few days away, I thought it was good to try to get a rid of a few more titles!
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: 508 (
my last post ended at 505, so I didn’t add too much the past few weeks…)
The Perfectionists – Sara Shepard
I really enjoyed Pretty Little Liars (even though I only read one book, but I did watch all of the show), so I think I’ll enjoy this one. The Perfectionists was actually a TV show, but only lasted one season. I’ll definitely give this one a go.
Noteworthy – Riley Redgate
It’s been awhile since this one was on my radar and I honestly forgot all about it. Oops! I have to say it does sound really interesting and probably something I’ll still enjoy. On top of that, I actually really like this cover.
Windfall – Jennifer E. Smith
Jennifer E. Smith is an author I’m already familiar with. I’ve read a couple of her contemporary books. Windfall is another book I totally forgot about. For now I’m going to take it off my want-to-read shelf. It sounds cute, but I don’t think I’ll be picking it up anytime soon.
Under Different Stars – Amy A. Bartol
Another book I really can’t remember seeing around. Under Different Stars is an older book now. It was released in 2013. The people I know who have read it, actually rated it pretty high. I really don’t think I’ll get to it though.
The Love Interest – Cale Dietrich
Finally a book this week that I remember adding to my list, haha. I still love the cover and the story really does interesting me. The Love Interest has gotten quite a few mixed reviews and I was pretty disappointed by a couple of teen spies stories this year. For now I think I’ll have to pass.
Zenn Diagram – Wendy Brant
I’m actually surprised that I haven’t read this one yet! I own Zenn Diagram and definitely plan on picking it up. The story still sounds really cute.
The Last Thing You Said – Sara Biren
The Last Thing You Said sounds like a very emotional, but beautiful story. That being said, at the moment it sounds like a few stories I’ve already read. I think I’d like it, but I just don’t have the time at the moment.
Dating You/Hating You – Christina Lauren
I know this one will be simple. I own Dating You/Hating You and still really want and need to read it. Christina Lauren books are always a lot of fun, so I have a feeling this one will be as well.
The Invisible Library – Genevieve Cogman
Another book I don’t remember adding and in all honestly, it feels like I just heard about this series not too long ago. It involves book and a library, so that’s an easy keep for me!
Letters to the Lost – Brigid Kemmerer
Okay, this is definitely a book I should’ve already been finished with. I’ve heard amazing things about this story and actually own the next two books that come after Letters to the Lost. This one is on my definitely must read list of 2020.
Removal Percentage: 40%
Current “to-read” shelf: 504
When I saw the titles for this week’s Down the TBR Hole, I knew I wouldn’t be getting rid of too many of them. At least I cleaned up a few before opening new books on Christmas morning! What do you think of my choices? Should I have kept any of these? Or maybe not at all? Let me know what you think in the comments.
