Down the TBR hole #4

Well I am really in need of some decluttering, I thought I was doing really well and then all the books happened so I am going to up my game to 15 books a session. 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?
