Down the TBR Hole #3

Web

Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story. Its purpose is to help narrow down your TBR list on Goodreads by selecting 5 titles each week and deciding if you want to keep it on your TBR or get rid of it! I was inspired by Melanie @ Meltotheany to start this blog series as my TBR pile is OUT OF CONTROL!

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

This Week’s 5 Books:

Can you tell I went through a dystopian phase?

1) THE 5TH WAVE BY RICK YANCEY

I am so over YA dystopians so I have no hesitation getting rid of this one. I already have it in my donation pile.

Verdict: DELETE

2) CARNAGE BY LESLEY JONES

I didn’t even know what this book was about but somehow it ended up on my TBR? It’s a new adult romance which isn’t my absolute favorite genre. However I have other new adult books higher on my TBR that I’d prefer to read than this!

Verdict: DELETE

3) BRINGING HOME THE BIRKIN BY MICHAEL TONELLO

I went through a huge memoir phase so I added this to my TBR back in the day. I think I’ll pass on this one, though. But it does sound cute!

Verdict: DELETE

4) DELIRIUM BY LAUREN OLIVER

I have always been underwhelmed by Lauren Oliver’s books. I HATED Before I Fall. Like, I really, really hated the main character so much. And I’ve heard a lot of negative things about this series. Pass.

Verdict: DELETE

5) READY PLAYER ONE BY ERNEST CLINE

Again, my heart just isn’t into dystopians anymore. I know this is a cult favorite which is why I’ve kept it on my TBR. But I really don’t see myself wanting to pick it up in the next year.

Verdict: DELETE

Thanks for taking a look at my TBR! I’m going to try my best to make this a weekly thing! And please feel free to recommend what books I should add (or remove) from my TBR! You can go here to view my to-read shelf, or here to add me as a friend on Goodreads! 🙂

xx,

Amy

  1. I did enjoy Ready Player One a lot. Admittedly dystopia is one of my favourite genres. It’s one of those rare books where the movie version was also quite good – even though a bit different.
