Down the TBR Hole #1

word

Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 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?

laurelsfloweers_0008_vectorsmartobjectI’m super excited to start this new segment on my blog! I have over 150 books on my TBR on gooreads and a lot of them were added in like 6-7 years ago! :O

7906105 Every time I see this book on my TBR, I consider taking it off because it’s been on my TBR list since 2010. However, every time I read the synopsis, I’m reminded as to why I want to keep it. It’s about a blind girl with phenomena that ends up getting accidentally kidnapped

VERDICT: keep

 

 

11496636This cover is absolutely gorgeous… I keep debating on taking it off my TBR simply because it’s been on my TBR for so long, but the synopsis always sounds intriguing. The main character can cross the veil between life and death. Sounds awesome!

VERDICT: keep

 

 

12425532When reading this synopsis, I wasn’t super interested in the plot. I think I added this to my to TBR because it had good reviews and because I like books about any form of Greek mythology. However, I’m not into this cover. I doubt I’d buy this for my selves but I did enjoy what I read of the first page on amazon so I’d probably read this off my library app!

VERDICT: go

This book is about a girl that messages a guy online and ends up meeting him but he’s not who he appears to be and the girl goes missing. The plot sounds fantastic and it seems like an important story on how dangerous the internet can be. I was super into the first page I read on amazon so I’ll probably just end up reading this from the library or something if I ever get around to it!

VERDICT: go

 

7531478I like reading books about mental illnesses and stuff so I think that’s why I added this book… but the more I read the synopsis, I don’t think it’s something I would into. I think it’s just the way the synopsis is written but the book doesn’t sound interesting in the slightly. 😦

VERDICT: go
