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?

every last word


Every Last Word

It has a high Goodreads rating and it does sound interesting so…STAYING


letters to rachel



Letters To Rachel

This does sound right up my street and it also has a good rating so…STAYING


begin to begin



Begin To Begin

I mean it has a bookstore in it so that is probably what drew me to it and it sounds ok but it’s not standing out so…GOING


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00018]



Jasmine Falling

I love the cover and it does sound interesting but I’m just not convinced…GOING


beneath the ashes



Beneath The Ashes

This is the second in the series and I usually try not to go for books unless I’ve read the first so…GOING


seven stages of anger



The Seven Stages Of Anger And Other Stories

I’m not sure what made me add this, it doesn’t sound bad but from the blurb there’s not much there to interest me…GOING


letters for scarlet



Letters For Scarlet

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


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


her last breath



Her Last Breath

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


a murder in time



A Murder In Time

It sounded good up until I realised a lot of it would be a historical setting and it has very mixed reviews…GOING






It sounds like the kind of romance that I like to read but there’s just something about it that isn’t speaking to me…GOING 


escaping memories



Escaping Memories

I was going to ditch this one because of the cover but it sounds good with lots of good reviews so…STAYING


the woman behind the waterfall



The Woman Behind The Waterfall

Nope doesn’t sound like a book I would be interested in, unfortunately…GOING


sunset rising



Sunset Rising

This sounds really good, I do love a dystopian book so…STAYING


l'enfant entitled



L’Enfant Entitled

It sounds good quite funny but not enough to keep…GOING



Books Going – 10

To Go – 391

Well that’s the most I think I’ve managed to get rid of, feels pretty good. Hopefully I can keep it up.
