Down The TBR Hole #5

Down The TBR Hole #5

Wow, a week has already come and gone. Time to take another look at my looming TBR. This challenge/meme was started by Lost In A Story back in 2016. Here are the rules, in case you are interested in participating too! Rules: Go to your goodreads to-read […]

Down The TBR Hole #2

Down The TBR Hole #2

Even though I was able to get some books off of my TBR this past week by reading them, I’m looking forward to see if I can keep dropping that massive 600+ need-to-reads! Hey, guys! It’s time sit down and look at the next five […]

Down the TBR Hole #1

Down the TBR Hole #1

I've seen this meme float around the blogosphere for some time now.

Not sure what it was about, I finally checked it out. This wonderful little tactic is a way to cut down on the ever-rising TBR pile. Seeing how mine has broken 600, I need do to something to clean it up. I know there are books that I’ve lost interest in and are cluttering the list. 

This was started by Lost In A Story back in 2016. Here are the rules, in case you are interested in participating too!

Rules

  • 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?

I’ll be going through 5 books each week. So, let’s get started! 

The Books

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This is the oldest book on my TBR. Seeing how it's not that long, and because I already own it, I'm going to KEEP this one.

Pretties (Uglies #2) by Scott Westerfeld

I read the first book in this series, "Uglies" in 2016. I wasn't exactly a fan of the main character, Tally, and don't see much intruige at the moment to keep on with the series. For now, this one is a GO.

Snow LIke Ashes by Sara Raasch

Another book that I already own, I'm going to KEEP this one. I've been wanting to give this series a try for a long time. If I don't like the first book, then I'll quit with the series.

The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings #2) by J.R.R. Tolkien

I don't need to say much here, because this is a definite KEEP for me. I just haven't gotten around to finishing up the series yet!

Forbidden by Ted Dekker

A Christian fiction dystopia? Yeah, I'm going to KEEP this one. It's the first in a series, but ties in with other books and series written by Ted Dekker, so I definitely want to give this one a shot.

Alright! So, 1/5 books have been eliminated from my TBR.
What do you think of my choices?
Are there any books on this list that you'd recommend taking off?
Which book would you keep?
