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:
If She Were Dead by J.P. Smith
An author having an affair with a married man becomes obsessed with him and his wife, blurring the lines of reality. Not the most original of premises - pass!
The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
This book is about a Norwegian village where the men have perished and the women are facing the threat of a witch hunt from an outside force, in the 1600s. It's based on real events and sounds really interesting - keep!
Winter World by A.G. Riddle
In the near future, the human race faces another ice age. NASA launches a mission to explore an object in space that may be somehow causing the climate change. I really enjoy sci-fi stories, especially ones that have a space component - keep!
No Man's Land by Wendy Moore
A nonfiction book about two female doctors who treated soldiers in France during WWI and later opened a hospital in London. I'm always on the lookout for interesting nonfiction - keep!
Valentine by Elizabeth Wetmore
A small Texas town is poised for a boom when oil is discovered, but prosperity is not the only thing that finds this town. This sounds a little too dark and heavy for me right now - pass!
Have You Seen Me? by Kate White
A woman in a fugue state loses two days of her life, and she must piece together what happened during those days and how a trauma from her childhood may be resurfacing. This premise is kind of intriguing, but I'm just not fully into it - pass!
Have you read any of these?
