Down the TBR hole #7

Episode 7 of this endeavour, my want to read number shot up a little after I went to the Edinburgh Book Festival so I had been doing well but I’ll see how I get on this time round. 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?

Again I’m not sure why I added this one, it doesn’t sound like something I would usually go for so…GOING

Fear Dreams

So I’m not sure about this one, I believe the reason I added it is because the second book in the series sounds really good, but I’m not sure I’m feeling this one…GOING

So I know this completely breaks my rule but since I added them with the intention of reading the first I’ll call it a grey area…STAYING
