Down the TBR Hole 8/18/18

Down The TBR Hole is a meme hosted by @ Lost in a Story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre 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?

In my case, My TBR is on my Kindle.  So, I find myself going back to the earliest add of my current paperwhite (and realizing that my dates will be out of order since every time you open a book, it reorders them LOL).


If you are intrigued by any of the titles, clicking on their name will take you to Amazon to learn more.



The Book:  The Chronicles of Izzy: The Complete Series by Michelle Graves

Date added to my Kindle:  05/15/2015

My Thoughts:  This is over 700 pages and the synopsis just isn’t sparking my interest right now.  And, it’s been sitting for more than 3 years.

Verdict:  Remove



The Book: The Descent Series, Books 1-3: Death’s Hand, The Darkest Gate, and Dark Union

Date added to my Kindle:  08/22/2014

My Thoughts:  This is another one that is a box set and has been sitting for years.  The synopsis just isn’t snagging my interest enough to commit to this right now.

Verdict:  Remove

The Book: Homeward Bound (Journeyman Book 1) by Golden Czermak

Date added to my Kindle:  08/08/2016

My Thoughts:  This sounds intriguing and I’ve met Golden at a few author events and have a signed copy, so I really want to give this series a chance.

Verdict:  Keep (as a bit of a cheat, I’ve also decided to keep Seal of Solomon and Made to Suffer which are books two and three of the series as well.  



The Book:  Billion Dollar Bear by Catherine Vale

Date added to my Kindle:  01/02/2017

My Thoughts:  I snagged this (and a bunch of the author’s titles) when she had a week of giveaways and freebies.  Honestly, I snagged because I could.  This one isn’t grabbing my interest at this time.  

Verdict:  Remove



The Book: Broken Moon by Catherine Vale

Date added to my Kindle:  01/01/2017

My Thoughts:  Again, this was a freebie I grabbed just because it was free.  I’m sure I’ll keep a few of her titles, but not this one.

Verdict: Remove


I removed 4 books out of the 7 books I listed this week. And, yes, this is still a struggle.  

Running total:  6 books kept and 6 books removed.


Have you read any of the books I listed above?  Which would you keep / remove?
