Down the TBR Hole |#33

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!
