Down the TBR Hole |#32

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog.  

Today is another day for a Down the TBR Hole. How was your day so far? I hope good! I know that I’m a day late for this but I completely forgot to do it yesterday! Sorry!!

The Down the TBR meme was created by Lia (Lost in a Story). Go check out her blog if you haven’t already! You’re probably wondering how this works but it’s actually pretty easy:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 or 10 books (or even more if you’re feeling motivated enough). And of course, if you’re doing this weekly you’ll start where you left off the week before. 
  • Read the synopses of the books.
  • Decide: keep it or toss it! 

And now without further ado, let’s do this!

Last time on my shelf – 1435
Currently on my shelf – 1443

#1 – The Thousand Names – The Shadow Campaigns #1 – Django Wexler – Link to Goodreads

I can’t even remember adding this one to the list. It goes!

Decision – GO!

#2 – CrackedSoul Eaters #1 – Eliza Crewe – Link to Goodreads

It reminds me a bit of Monsters Of Verity by V.E.Schwab. Meaning that this book stays!

Decision – KEEP!

#3 – Lock In Lock In #1 – John Scalzi – Link to Goodreads

It sounds interesting!

Decision – KEEP!

#4 – UnwindUnwind #1 – Neal Shusterman – Link to Goodreads

I really like Shusterman but the synopsis doesn’t intrigue me. So for now it has to go. It might however come back in the future.

Decision – GO!

#5 – The Immortal Rules – Blood of Eden #1 – Julie Kagawa – Link to Goodreads

Sounds great. It stays!

Decision – KEEP! 

#6 – Hunting LilaLila #1 – Sarah Alderson – Link to Goodreads

I don’t know what to think of this one. It will go!

Decision – GO!

#7 – Enclave – Razorland #1 – Ann Aguirre – Link to Goodreads

This sounds really great! I’ve never heard of this one before but it might surprise me so it stays.

Decision – KEEP! 

#8 – The Forest of Hands and Teeth – Carrie Ryan – Link to Goodreads

I’m not sure about this one! I guess that for now it has to go.

Decision – GO!

#9 – Der Spezialist Mark Allen Smith – Link to Goodreads

I already have a copy of this book so it has to stay!

Decision – KEEP! 

#10 – The Bear and the Nightingale – Katherine Arden – Link to Goodreads

Doesn’t sound interesting anymore, it will have to go!

Decision – GO!

#11 – The GunslingerThe dark Tower #1 – Stephen King – Link to Goodreads

As I’m a Stephen King fan, this book will obviously stay!

Decision – KEEP!

#12 – Carve the MarkCarve the Mark #1 – Veronica Roth – Link to Goodreads

I only added it because of the hype at that time. The synopsis doesn’t intrigue me at all anymore.

Decision – GO!

#13 – The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger – Link to Goodreads

I wanted to read this one for ages! It stays.

Decision – KEEP!

#14 – Heart.Beat.Love. – James Patterson – Link to Goodreads

I loved everything James Patterson wrote before so this one stays as well.

Decision – KEEP!

#15 – Ocean of Storms – Christopher Mari & Jeremy K.Brown – Link to Goodreads

I don’t know why I added this one because it doesn’t interest me at all.

Decision – GO!

#16 – The Vagina Monologues Eve Ensler – Link to Goodreads

I might read this one eventually. So it stays!

Decision – KEEP!

#17 – All the Light We Cannot See – Anthony Doerr – Link to Goodreads

I can’t say no to a book about WWII so it stays!

Decision – KEEP!

#18 – The Final EmpireMistborn #1 – Brandon Sanderson – Link to Goodreads

It is Brandon Sanderson and I do like his writing style. This one stays as well!

Decision – KEEP!

#19 – The Raven BoysThe Raven Cycle #1 – Maggie Stiefvater – Link to Goodreads

I always wanted to read something by Stiefvater so it stays!

Decision – KEEP!
