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 Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger
This book is about a community that's torn apart by competition, secrets, and lies when a school for gifted students opens in their town. I think this sounds fascinating - keep!
Hello Girls by Brittany Cavallaro and Emily Henry
Two teenage friends decide they've had enough of their crappy lives and decide to hit the road. This sounds a little too depressing and unrealistic for me - pass!
Easily Amused by Karen McQuestion
A romantic comedy about a woman who inherits a house and becomes the "project" of the neighborhood. Eh, just not into this one - pass!
Someone We Know by Shari Lapena
I really enjoyed my first Shari Lapena book, and this one about a teenager who breaks into his neighbors' houses and maybe starts sharing their secrets sounds so intense! Keep!
The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell
This thriller has been getting pretty rave reviews, so I'm going to keep it!
The Divers' Game by Jesse Ball
I've read the blurb for this book a few times and I still can't figure out what it's about. I think the story would go way over my head - pass!
Not The Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher
This book is supposed to be an updated spin on the movie How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Sounds cute, but the reviews are pretty dismal. Pass!
Have you read any of these?
