Down the TBR Hole #4

down the tbr hole

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lost in a Story! This meme was created to try and get a handle on your TBR list and get it down to a more manageable number.  If you see any that you think I should keep or one that you think it’s worth my time, please let me know! It helps greatly! I’m so indecisive about these things and I think I need to read ALL THE BOOKS!

5 books longer

How it works:
Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
Order on ascending date added.
Take the first 5 (or more if you’re feeling adventurous) books
Read the synopses of the books
Decide: keep it or should it go?

My TBR is beyond massive, I could easily be buried alive under it LOL I’m going to do 10 books a week for now.  I may increase that as time goes on we shall see.   I’m very excited to start my very first Down the TBR Hole post! Wish me luck!

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Yes, I’m one of the very few who haven’t read ToG.  I am total trash for the ACOTAR series so there is no way I’m removing this one!
Final Decision: Keep

Graceling (Graceling Realm #1) by Kristin Cashore
I’ve been meaning to read this for about three years now and it still sits on my shelf.  I know it’s considered a classic and I kind of want to see how it holds up against the fantasy we are seeing now.
Final Decision: Keep

The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald I really enjoy classics and I have a particular love for children’s classics so this one isn’t going anywhere.
Final Decision: Remove

The Thousand Dollar Tan Line (Veronica Mars #1) by Rob Thomas Ugh! I keep forgetting I have this book.  I am a complete MARSHMELLOW and this book was written by the show’s creator and with the revival coming up – it might be the perfect time to finally check this book out.
Final Decision: Keep

Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison
I’ve seen the film for this book and it completely broke me.  I don’t think I have the heart to relive it, especially if it’s much more graphic in the novel.
Final Decision: Remove

TBRHOLE4-2

The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson I own the box set of this series and I have zero clue when I’ll actually pick it up but I do want to pick it up someday!
Final Decision: Keep!

Alice by Christina Henry 
I recently purchased this book, along with the sequel.  I adore Alice in Wonderland and this sounds really dark.  I am going to keep this one but I’m much more reluctant since one of my friends told me there was quite abit of rape in this novel.  I didn’t know that at all when I ordered it.
Final Decision: Keep, but wary

Sisters Red  (Fairytale Retellings #1) by Pearce Jackson
I’m somewhat still interested in this.  Enough that I’m not ready to unhaul it yet, so if I haven’t read it in another year or so, I’ll prob pass it along.
Final Decision: Keep!

The Silver Witch by Paula Bracken
I picked this up at a thrift store a couple years ago.  I know nothing about it and it really doesn’t appeal to me anymore.  I guess it’s time to unhaul it.
Final Decision: Remove

Stardust by Neil Gaiman 
I actually wasn’t a fan of the film much, but I’ve nothing but magical things about the book, so hopefully I’ll finally get to it next year.
Final Decision: Keep!

5 books longer

Final Thoughts:  I removed two this week but it still feels good dwindling the list down slow (even if it’s very slow!).
