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 or more 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?
On the chopping block this week:
The Alienist by Caleb Carr:
This ended up on my TBR back in 2014 but I completely forgot I added it! And then it recently became a TV show. Last year for Christmas my dad got me a copy of the book which wasn’t something I asked for but am so happy I got it. I think I’ll really like it!
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty:
I love Liane Moriarty’s books so this is for sure a keeper. I really loved Big Little Lies.
Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle:
I think 2014 me would’ve enjoyed this girl-becomes-famous YA story but 2018 me says no.
The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick:
Someone I trust did not like this book and that’s enough for me to X it from my TBR.
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater:
LOL I haven’t even read the second book yet in The Raven Cycle, but I want to. So book 4 is for sure staying on my TBR.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven:
I know this book means a lot to so many people, and it has raving reviews. But I am just not sure if this is for me. I am going to say no for now.
Thanks for taking a look at my TBR! 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! 🙂

I have all 4 books but haven’t read three of them. Sigh. I need a swift kick in the butt lmao ❤️
Yay! The Raven Cycle made the cut 🤗😂 I LOVE that trilogy with all my soul and we recently had some updates on the tv series, Maggie is writing the Pilot script & gahhhh! all the dark feels 🖤 I also have The Husband’s Secret on my my home shelves, gotta dust that one off but it almost feels like a book I’d read at a hotel on vacation? 🤷🏻♀️ don’t listen to me 😂 Happy reading Amy! 🖤

Lmao! Lilly, I know what you mean – even though Liane Moriarty’s books have a mysterious element to them I always consider them “lighter” reads! And I had no idea about the TV series! How exciting 😱🎉
