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?
About That Night by Elaine Bedell (2019)
A television producer is drawn into a murder investigation when her show's host dies on live TV. Just not interested anymore in this one - pass!
Long Bright River by Liz Moore (2020)
A story about two sisters affected by opioid addiction and the search when one goes missing. I know this one has gotten rave reviews, but it's not grabbing me - pass!
The Silent Treatment by Abbie Graves (2020)
A married couple hasn't spoken to each other in six months, but when the wife ends up in the hospital, the husband has to find his voice again. I love stories about marriage - keep!
Sweet Melody by Heidi McCahan (2019)
A struggling bakery owner and an equally struggling singer work together on a food truck. Although I've been loving romances lately, this one seems a little meh to me. Pass!
If Only I Could Tell You by Hannah Beckerman (2019)
A woman wonders if now is the time to reveal a big secret, in hopes it might bring her family back together. I enjoy stories about families, especially mothers and daughters, plus I love this cover - keep!
Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale by Adam Minter (2019)
Journalist Adam Minter explores thrift shops, flea markets, and vintage stores around the world as he contemplates our love for things new versus old. I'm always on the lookout for a good nonfiction - keep!
A Mind Unraveled: A True Story of Disease, Love, and Triumph by Kurt Eichenwald (2019)
Journalist and author Kurt Eichenwald tells his story of a lifetime dealing with epilepsy. Another nonfiction book that sounds fascinating - keep!
