Down the TBR Hole |#38

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog.  

Today is another day for a Down the TBR Hole. I should definitely be more consistent with that posting schedule. Don’t you think?

The Down the TBR meme was created by Lia (Lost in a Story). Unfortunately, her blog isn’t online anymore.

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 – 1417
Currently on my shelf – 142

#1 – The Universe of Us – Lang Leav – Link to Goodreads

I don’t even remember adding this one. So it goes!

Decision – GO!

#2 – We are Okay – Nina LaCour – Link to Goodreads

I will read this book one day! I promise!

Decision – KEEP!

#3 – A Silent Voice, Vol.1 – Yoshitoki Oima – Link to Goodreads

This just doesn’t work for me anymore I guess. So it will have to go!

Decision – GO!

#4 – The Female of the Species – Mindy McGinnis – Link to Goodreads

I’ve wanted to read this book for ages now! It sounds so interesting. This means that it will have to stay!

Decision – KEEP!

#5 – Ronit & Jamil – Pamela L.Laskin – Link to Goodreads

THIS is definitely not my type of book. I don’t read verse/poetry so it will go!

Decision – GO! 

#6 – The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood – Link to Goodreads

Please don’t yell at me! I know I should have read this one ages ago! I promise I will.

Decision – KEEP!

#7 – Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness – Susannah Cahalan – Link to Goodreads

This sounds like a very interesting memoir. So it will stay on the shelf!

Decision – KEEP! 

#8 – The Young Elites – Marie Lu – Link to Goodreads

I liked her other books so I’m sure that I will like this one as well!

Decision – KEEP!

#9 – Hidden Figures Margot Lee Shetterly – Link to Goodreads

I’ve never watched the movie nor have I read the book but I definitely should.

Decision – KEEP! 

#10 – The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet – Becky Chambers – Link to Goodreads

I wanted to read this one last year. But I actually never managed. So hopefully this year will be the year!

Decision – KEEP!

#11 – Geekerella– Ashley Poston – Link to Goodreads

Well I’m obviously keeping this book. Because I should read it, right?

Decision – KEEP!

#12 – The Bone Season – Samantha Shannon – Link to Goodreads

I wanted to read this book also for ages. Why am I so bad at reading books?

Decision – KEEP!

#13 – Nightmares! – Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller – Link to Goodreads

I don’t think that I will ever read this book. So this one goes as well.

Decision – GO!

#14 – Red Sparrow – Jason Matthews – Link to Goodreads

Sounds very intriguing. So it stays!

Decision – KEEP!

#15 – The Red Knight – Miles Cameron – Link to Goodreads

I don’t know about this one. For now I’ll just delete it from my shelves. I might give it another try however.

Decision – GO!

#16 – The Mysterious Benedict Society Trenton Lee Stewart – Link to Goodreads

This book sounds very promising but I’m not really sure.

Decision – GO!

#17 – Hamilton: The Revolution – Lin-Manuel Miranda – Link to Goodreads

I’m a huge Hamilton fan so this has to stay!!!

Decision – KEEP!

#18 – Under False Flags – Steve Anderson – Link to Goodreads

This sounds really interesting and I will have to read it someday!

Decision – KEEP!

#19 – The Fix David Baldacci – Link to Goodreads

This is one of my favourite authors so it stays.

Decision – KEEP!

#20 – The Stranger – Albert Camus – Link to Goodreads

I know that I have to read more classics. But I just don’t know with this one.

Decision – GO!

Total number of books kept – 13
Total number of books that had to go – 7
Total number on my to-read shelf – 1417

At least we’re stable again!
