Down the TBR #5


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 and Amy @ A Court of Crowns and Quills to start this series. If you haven’t checked out any of these lovely blogs, do it NOW!

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?

ONE: What Happened to Cats McBride? by Gail Giles

I honestly could not remember a THING about this book, so I read the synopsis, and holy cow! The description still grabs me and I kind of wanted to buy it right away. I think I’ll keep this one for now.


TWO: Clariel by Garth Nix

I can’t believe I haven’t gotten to this book yet. The Sabriel series by Garth Nix was one of my favorites growing up, and probably one of the first series (besides Tamora Pierce’s Alanna series) to really pull me into reading. This is a no-brainer.


THREE: My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

I don’t even have to re-read the synopsis of this book to know I want to read it. I’m not doing a very good job of cleansing my TBR this week…


FOUR: I Was Here by Gayle Foramen

I’m a little indecisive about this one, but the synopsis still sounds interesting. Apparently I went through a huge contemporary phase when I added all of these. I feel like I’m just having FOMO and that’s why I’m keeping all these books…


FIVE: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

This is literally sitting on my shelf right now, and I have put it on a hopeful TBR list for Contemporary-Athon next week! Hopefully it will be moved to my “read” shelf this month!


Well, that was a great fail. I didn’t delete ANY books this week. Help! I don’t think that’s the point of this series…

Would you have ditched any of these reads? Let me know!




I'm a late 20-something physical therapist living in Michigan with my hubby who loves reading and reviewing books, running, wine, and dogs.
