Down the TBR Hole #9

 

Hello bookworms and welcome to my latest instalment of Down the TBR hole!

Down the TBR Hole is a weekly book meme created by the wonderful Lia @ Lost in a Story that attempts to organize our ridiculously long Goodreads TBR list by choosing either to keep or eliminate the books we’ve saved on there. Here’s how it works:

  • 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

 

It’s time for the next 20 books to go through the cull! There are quite a few Stephen King ones this week which I suppose I must have added all together. I can’t bear to part with any of those though as I really do want to read more King. An interesting mix otherwise though! I found it difficult to find many to remove!

 

Any purchases made via my Amazon affiliate links will result in me being paid a small commission. This support helps me to pay for my blog running costs and is always appreciated but never expected. You can view my Amazon Influencer page **HERE** to browse all the books that I recommend.

  • I like these posts – they have made me look at my own TBR on Goodreads and take a second look. I have read a handful of books that you have decided to skip. The only one I would fight for, and it is only because of all the Jennifer McMahon that I have read, it is my favorite – The Winter People. I feel like I have read a lot of her stuff because I like the realistic parts of her stories but not so much the magical parts (I have the same problem with Haruki Murakami’s stuff). Maybe you have the same problem and read you share of “meh” with her, but if you haven’t, and you don’t mind the genre, that is the one I would say to check out.

    • I haven’t read anything by her before and I am not sure what exactly made me toss it from the list. I just didn’t get that excited feeling about reading it when I looked at it but maybe it will end up back on there someday 🙂

  • I remember loving INKHEART when I read it years back. And I’m a fan of anything Stephen King so I loved seeing those on your TBR! 😁

  • Hope you enjoy The Girl on the Train, I loved it 😊

  • This is such a great book meme. I feel like I really need to start taking part in it, because I know my Goodreads shelf is getting out of control and I’m sure there are a ton of books on there that I probably don’t want to read anymore or think I will ever get to.
