Down the TBR Hole 8/25/18

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:  Non Friction by Morgan Parker

Date added to my Kindle:  12/01/14

My Thoughts:  I had read another book by this author and genuinely adored it, so I purchased this book and it sat on my TBR.  As of right now, this blurb isn’t catching my attention.

Verdict:  Remove

The Book:  Fractured Affections by Elizabeth Wills

Date added to my Kindle:  11/25/15

My Thoughts:  I’ve heard fabulous things about this author and series, but it’s an ugly cry series and just not my thing.

Verdict:  Remove

The Book:  The Game Changer by Scott Hildreth

Date added to my Kindle:  02/05/17

My Thoughts:  This was book two in a three part series.  I loved book one and snagged this  as soon as it came out, but was waiting for the series ender to also be released before reading . . . and it got buried on my TBR.  Book three is out, so I need to get back to this!

Verdict:  Keep

The Book: The Pledge by Laura Ward and Christine Manzari

Date added to my Kindle:  3/17/17

My Thoughts:  So, even though this has good reviews, re-reading the blurb, this seems super angsty to me which I’m not about right now.

Verdict:  Remove

I removed 4 books out of the 5 books I listed this week. And, yes, this is still a struggle.  Honestly, the only reason I can complete this exercise is because these books still live on in my Amazon cloud.

Running total:  7 books kept and 10 books removed.

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

  1. Sophie, my saving grace is they all still “live” in my Amazon content cloud . . . if not, I don’t know if I could remove any. I am hoping that cutting those actually on my kindle helps me prioritize and get top the ones I really want to read.
