Down the TBR Hole #30

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 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?

Here’s what’s on the chopping block this week:

ONE: Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

If you had asked me this last week I probably would have said I’d ditch it, as I wasn’t a huge fan of my first Christina Lauren book, My Favorite Half-Night Stand. But after reading The Unhoneymooners, I’m obsessed and I’ll read anything from these authors I can get my hands on.

VERDICT: KEEP

TWO: The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross

I actually don’t know much about this book but I keep seeing it EVERYWHERE. Plus the cover is gorgeous. I’ll be honest though, I’m gonna have to wait until I’m in a more fantasy mood.

VERDICT: KEEP

THREE: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

I already own this book, and I’ve heard such wonderful things about it from people I trust. I swear, I’ll get to it eventually!

VERDICT: KEEP

FOUR: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

I love Leigh Bardugo, but I hate short stories. I’ll be honest, I’ll probably never get to these.

VERDICT: DELETE

FIVE: Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser

What? A thriller that I got from BOTM that is still sitting on my shelf unread? How strange…

VERDICT: KEEP

Have you guys read any of these? Did I make the wrong call? Let me know!

  1. I read The Language of Thorns and just couldn’t get into it. I ended up finishing it and passing it off to a friend. It was my first book by that author, so that may have been the mistake… I’d love to see what you think if you get around to reading it! 🙂
