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?
From a Distant Star by Karen McQuestion
The Women in Black by Madeleine St. John
Adequate Yearly Progress by Roxanna Elden
Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn
The Secret Wife of Aaron Burr by Susan Holloway Scott

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes an epic novel of love and heroism and hope, set against the backdrop of one of America’s most defining eras—the Great Depression.
Texas, 1934. Millions are out of work and a drought has broken the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all. One of the darkest periods of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl era, has arrived with a vengeance.
In this uncertain and dangerous time, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation. - from Goodreads
Kristin Hannah is an author I've enjoyed for many years, and I really like the sound of this book. The Great Depression/Dust Bowl era is not one I come across in books often, but it is so quintessentially American and I'm really looking forward to it.
