Down the TBR Hole is a feature created by Lost in a Story (although the blog seems to be down recently). 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?
Jane Anonymous by Laurie Faria Stolarz
This book, I think, is about a kidnap victim who returns to her previous life. It seems from the blurb that there are some revelations and twists associated with the kidnapping. Interesting premise, but I think I'll pass.
The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes
In 1960, a woman wakes up in a hospital, remembering nothing. She finds a letter from someone imploring her to leave her husband. In 2003, a journalist finds the letter and begins a search to find out what happened to the woman in 1960. I love Jojo Moyes, and since this is one I haven't read from her yet, I'm definitely keeping it!
The Second Home by Christina Clancy
Three siblings have to decide what to do with their family vacation home on Cape Cod, 15 years after a summer there changed their lives. I've seen some mixed reviews for this one, but I'm still intrigued. Keep!
Followers by Megan Angelo
This sci-fi book is about two women who want to be famous and how their actions affect literally the entire world decades later. This sounds fascinating - keep!
All about Evie by Cathy Lamb
A DNA test reveals long-hidden family secrets and leads Evie on a path of discovery about her past. There's a lot going on the blurb, and it sounds a little too quirky for me. Pass!
Happy & You Know It by Laura Hankin
A young musician is hired by a group of wealthy New York City mothers to sing to their children and gets herself a front-row seat to their drama-filled lives. I love stories like this, that give an insider view on how the uber-wealthy live - definitely keeping this one!
The Nanny by Gilly Macmillan
Thirty years after her beloved nanny disappears, a woman discovers that her family (and maybe her nanny) were keeping lots of secrets. This one just isn't grabbing me - pass!
