Down the TBR hole #2

Round two and I have found that I keep accidentally adding books so this might take a while to cut down. For any of you that haven’t heard of it before it was created by Lia @ Lost In A Story and this is the concept…

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

It works like this:

  • 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?

I don’t actually know how this ended up on my list it doesn’t sound terrible just not my kind of read so…GOING

I haven’t read any Gillian Flynn books but I did like the sound of this one and it has favourable reviews so…STAYING

A Woman in Berlin

This does sound like it would be amazing to read but I’m just not sure I would ever really get round to it so…GOING

 

 

city of thieves

City of Thieves

Usually, I would say that since this is based on WW2 that I wouldn’t be keen but this does sound like a fascinating story and not entirely war focussed so…STAYING

I Capture the Castle

I think I added this to my list because it is somewhat of a classic, I’m not sure how I feel about it so I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt and go for…STAYING

The Ballroom

I think it was the cover that attracted me to this book but the blurb hasn’t done it for me this time around so…GOING

Foxlowe

The blurb didn’t pique my interest and didn’t give me enough to know what was going to happen in the story so…GOING

 

 

At the end of round two

Starting figure – 394

Books staying – 4

Books going – 6

Total updated – 388

Are there any that you would convince me to change my mind on?
