Down the TBR Hole is a feature created by Lost in a Story. I've seen it on a few other blogs and thought I would try it out myself! It seems like a really good way to cull your TBR of those books you're no longer interested in. So how does it work?
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re 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?
Here are the books I'm looking at this time:
The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
This is on my TBR for the Retellings Reading Challenge, so I'm definitely keeping this one!
Mirage by Somaya Daud
Even though I saw good reviews for this one when it first came out, I haven't been in the mood for YA fantasy in awhile and this doesn't sound special enough for me to hold onto until that happens. Pass!
The Lantern's Ember by Colleen Houck
Yes, I know I just said above that I'm not into YA fantasy right now, but this sounds really fun and perfect for fall, so maybe I will give it a try then! Keeping for now!
Snow in Love by Melissa de la Crus, Nic Stone, Aimee Friedman, and Kasie West
I added this last fall and thought I would read it over the winter months, but I couldn't get a copy from my library and now I'm just not really interested anymore. Plus, I'm not a huge fan of short story collections! Pass!
Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
Even though this didn't get great reviews when it came out, it's Liane Moriarty, and I've generally enjoyed her books in the past. Keeping this one!
So, two out of five this time wasn't bad! Have you read any of these?
