Down the TBR Hole |#34

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! Can you believe it? For over 2 months I didn’t post a Down the TBR anymore? OMG I’m so behind. And I’m pretty sure that the books tripled since June!

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 – 1429
Currently on my shelf – 1434

#1 – Oma lässt grüßen und sagt, es tut ihr leid – Frederik Backman – Link to Goodreads

I’m having a copy of it at home so it will stay on the list!

Decision – KEEP!

#2 – CobraBenny Griessel #4 – Deon Meyer – Link to Goodreads

Same reason as above! I have this on my TBR for ages now!

Decision – KEEP!

#3 – Das Fell der Tante Meri – Theodora Bauer – Link to Goodreads

I have this one as well.

Decision – KEEP!

#4 – Böse Absichten – Keigo Higashino – Link to Goodreads

I think that today there are only books appearing on my want to-read shelf that I already own! So this one will have to stay as well.

Decision – KEEP!

#5 – Winter: The Tragic Story of a Berlin Family – Len Deighton – Link to Goodreads

I can’t remember owning this one. But for now it stays as well.

Decision – KEEP! 

#6 – Gegen alle Hindernisse – Nele Neuhaus – Link to Goodreads

This talks about horses and I don’t care that this is a book for kids. I want to read it so it stays!!

Decision – KEEP!

#7 – Come Back, Como – Steven Winn – Link to Goodreads

Who can say no to that dog?

Decision – KEEP! 

#8 – Der Fluch Das Tal Season 2, #1 – Krystyna Kuhn – Link to Goodreads

I read the first season like 10 years ago and remember nothing. I just know that I devoured these books but I never had the time to read the first book of the second series. Maybe now’s the time?

Decision – KEEP!

#9 – Und vergib uns unsere Schuld Claus Cornelius Fischer – Link to Goodreads

I already own it. So I don’t have much of a choice.

Decision – KEEP! 

#10 – Todeskampf – Michael Robotham – Link to Goodreads

Same reason as above!

Decision – KEEP!

#11 – Die Aufräumerin– Maggie Alderson – Link to Goodreads

I already read this one, so bye bye!

Decision – GO!

#12 – Die Reinheit des TodesJulius Kern #1 – Vincent Kliesch – Link to Goodreads

Same as above.

Decision – GO!

#13 – Das Babylon-Virus – Stephan M.Rother – Link to Goodreads

I’m a bit scared by this one because it has so many negative reviews but I have a copy at home. I will give it a try!

Decision – KEEP!

#14 – Die Säulen der Erde – Ken Follett – Link to Goodreads

I already tried reading this book 10 years ago after having watched the TV Show and falling in love with Eddie Redmayne. BUT this book is so intimidating as it is over 1000 pages long. 1000!!! I hope that I will be able to finish it one day.

Decision – KEEP!

#15 – Die Totenfrau des Herzogs – Dagmar Trodler – Link to Goodreads

I have this one sitting on my TBR for ages so it stays as well.

Decision – KEEP!

#16 – Blutrose Clare Hart #2 – Margie Orford – Link to Goodreads

I absolutely need to read this one.

Decision – KEEP!

#17 – Heartland Doppelband #4 – Lauren Brooke – Link to Goodreads

There are HORSES!!! It stays.

Decision – KEEP!

#18 – Träume und Enttäuschungen – Lauren Brooke – Link to Goodreads

See above

Decision – KEEP!

#19 – Hohe Erwartungen Lauren Brooke – Link to Goodreads

Same as above!

Decision – KEEP!

#20 – Zeit deines Lebens – Cecelia Ahern – Link to Goodreads

I love Ahern and I wanted to read this book since 2017 but I never gotten the chance to do so. Hopefully 2019 will be the year that I will manage to read it!

Decision – KEEP!

Total number of books kept – 18
Total number of books that had to go – 2
Total number on my to-read shelf – 1432

Like I said there were a lot of books that I already owned. And that’s the reason why I got rid of only 2 books.
