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:
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I am a sucker for books about royalty, so a story about a romance between the First Son and the Prince of Wales sounds amazing! Plus, I haven't seen a bad review of this yet. Keep!
Finding Dorothy by Elizabeth Letts
One of my mom's favorite movies is The Wizard of Oz, so this fiction novel about the wife of L. Frank Baum, who wrote the Oz books, is really intriguing, especially because it also includes some behind-the-scenes tidbits about the movie. Keep!
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
This book sounds fascinating - a woman who kills her husband refuses to speak about the crime. Keep!
Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller
While I really liked Levenseller's Daughter of the Pirate King duology, I'm just not feeling this book about a female warrior who must win back her honor to rejoin her tribe. Pass!
The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald
A mother tries to discover what really happened the night her daughter took a tragic fall, leaving her brain dead - but she's also pregnant, adding a whole other layer to the drama. Keep!
American Princess by Stephanie Marie Thornton
This book tells the story of First Daughter Alice Roosevelt. While I like the idea of learning more about a female historical figure, this doesn't grab my interest enough. Pass for now!
Have you read any of these?
