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?
Here are the books I'm looking at this time:
The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth
I absolutely loved my first Sally Hepworth book. The second, not so much, and I skipped her last book. Although I've seen good reviews for this story about the complicated relationship between a woman and her daughter-in-law, I'm just not really interested any more. Pass!
Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center
I recently featured this book about a female firefighter during Can't-Wait Wednesday, so I'm definitely keeping this one!
Forget You Know Me by Jessica Strawser
When I read Strawser's first book, I was a bit disappointed because it had been marketed as a thriller when it clearly wasn't. This story is about friendship and what happens when people grow apart. I've seen reviews that indicate that it also has been mis-marketed, and so I'm not really interested in being burned again. Pass!
If, Then by Kate Hope Day
This book about the residents of a small town having visions of an alternate reality intrigued me when I first heard about it, and I'm still interested in it, although I haven't seen many reviews for it. Keeping this one!
The Lost Man by Jane Harper
I read the first book in Jane Harper's Aaron Falk series and really enjoyed it. I meant to keep up with her books, but just haven't had time. This is a stand-alone book about a man's death and the brothers he left behind. Keeping this one!
Have you read any of these?
