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 Arrangement by Robyn Harding
An art student falls in love with her sugar daddy, and when he ends the arrangement, she begins stalking him. Hmm - pass!
The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins
This story about a small town and the librarian who wields magic with books sounds perfect for book lovers! Keep!
A Girl Named Anna by Lizzy Barber
A Girl Named Anna is the story of two girls, one whose sister went missing 15 years ago and one who has lived a strict and sheltered life for as long as she can remember. I feel like I can guess too much of the story just from the blurb, so I think I'll pass on this one!
The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett
I've really enjoyed Jenn Bennett's books, and this historical fiction book about a young woman and her first love searching for her father, and a ring that may have belonged to Vlad the Impaler, sounds awesome! Keep!
The Lying Room by Nicci French
A married woman finds her fling murdered, and she worries she will be implicated. Eh, just not really grabbing me anymore. Pass!
Sidelined by Suzanne Baltsar
This romance about a female football coach trying to prove herself to her male assistant coach sounds fun - keep!
Elevator Pitch by Linwood Barclay
I cannot resist stories like this, that sound like they could be great movies - NYC is thrown into chaos when elevators in several high-rise buildings start plummeting to the ground, and the police have to try to find the person behind it. Keep!
Have you read any of these?
