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:
Faker by Sarah Smith
Emmie, the lone woman working at a power tool company, is being forced to collaborate with a coworker who seems to dislike her on a charity project. This just doesn't sound very appealing to me anymore. Pass!
Mind Games by Shana Silver
A sci-fi story about hacking, sharing, and deleting memories. The synopsis also refers to a "hot stranger" - ugh, nope! Pass!
A Stranger on the Beach by Michele Campbell
A woman's fling is now stalking her and may even have killed her husband. Just not super into thrillers right now. Pass!
The Borgia Confessions by Alyssa Palombo
I really enjoy historical fiction and the infamous Borgia family of Italy is one I haven't read enough about. Keep!
The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai
This love story about two rival dating app creators sounds fun and light - keep!
A Treason of Thorns by Laura E. Weymouth
Although the synopsis is a little vague, I'm intrigued by this story about magical houses in England, plus I really enjoyed Weymouth's last book - keep!
Westering Women by Sandra Dallas
Historical fiction books can be comfort reads for me, and I like the sound of this story about the women who traveled west in search of husbands in California's gold country. Keep!
Have you read any of these?
