Down the TBR Hole is a feature created by Lost in a Story (although the blog seems to be down). 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:
Behind Every Lie by Christina McDonald
A woman who can't remember anything from the night her mother was murdered is a suspect in the case, and she tries to do her own investigation into her mother's past. This one isn't grabbing me - pass!
Feels Like Falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey
A woman down on her luck helps another woman, and as she gets drawn into her life, she makes some decisions about her own. I've been wanting to read this author, but this blurb doesn't really interest me that much - pass!
The Companions by Katie M. Flynn
In the near future, science has figured out a way to transfer a person's consciousness to a machine, to either remain with their families or be rented out as servants. What happens when the companions fight back? This sounds really cool - keep!
Please See Us by Caitlin Mullen
Atlantic City, New Jersey is at a standstill after the disappearance of two girls, but a local psychic may have some answers in her visions. While I like the New Jersey setting, I'm just not into crime novels right now - pass!
You and Me and Us by Alison Hammer
A woman's life changes when her partner is diagnosed with terminal cancer, and she is also forced to reexamine her relationship with her daughter. I really love emotional stories - keep!
All the Breaking Waves by Kerry Lonsdale
A woman returns to her hometown after her daughter experiences a series of nightmares. This one isn't grabbing me, either - pass!
The Bakeshop at Pumpkin and Spice by Donna Kauffman, Kate Angell, and Allyson Charles
A small town, Halloween, magic, a local bakery, and romance - even though this sounds like it could border on cheesy, it's appealing to my autumn-loving heart! Keep!
Have you read any of these?
