Down The TBR Hole #5

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

My Goodreads is a mess so this is perfect! Time to get more organized and clean up those shelves! Currently, I have 1188 books on my ‘Want to Read‘ shelf. I may have added and removed some books but overall it’s about the same where we left off. So let’s get to it!

Rules:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books

Book #41 | Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer

12283261

Date Added March 25, 2014

I completely forgot this book was a thing! It’s literally that whole TUMBLR post about falling in love with a book character. I must read this in 2020!

RESULTS: KEEP

Book #42 | Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

24770Date Added April 15, 2014

Okay, this was totally a series I picked up when I was into YA dystopian books. You know when they were all the rage. But I just don’t think I will like it. I honestly don’t like any dystopian books. But I also don’t want to get rid of the series.

RESULTS: KEEP FOR NOW

Book #43 | Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

2187._SY475_

Date Added April 26, 2014

Pretty sure a boy I liked in HS recommended this book to me and I bought it like an idiot. So on that point alone, I am kicking it off this list. It doesn’t even sound like something I would read. No offense if it’s your favorite. Just not for me.

RESULTS: BEGONE

Book #44 | Remember Me #1-3 by Christopher Pike

7148787 (1)

Date Added May 12, 2014

I did have this planned to read this Spooky Season but I just didn’t have the time. So it got pushed back again. I hear such wonderful things about Christopher Pike so I want to keep this one!

RESULTS: KEEP

Book #45 | Dark Visions #1-3 by L.J. Smith

6322323 (1)Date Added May 12, 2014

I will have to double-check if this series is by the actual author or if it’s written by a ghostwriter. Because honestly, I will toss it if it’s written by a ghost. I will not read any of the ghostwritten books.

RESULTS: CHECK THE AUTHOR

Book #46 | Pet Sematary by Stephen King

10583

Date Added May 12, 2014

Another book I had planned for spooky season but it just didn’t work out this year! Maybe next year!

RESULTS: KEEP

Book #47 | Marley & Me by John Grogan

376612Date Added May 12, 2014

Umm, I don’t even know how I ended up with this book. One sure way to bring me to can’t breathe tears is any kind of animal death but especially dogs. I will bawl like a baby. And honestly, nobody has time for that.

RESULTS: NO MORE TEARS LEFT TO CRY

Book #48 | Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

6304335Date Added May 12, 2014

I have the box set so I am keeping it. But enough people have told me to not read it. So I don’t plan on it. But the books are pretty.

RESULTS: KEEP BUT WILL NEVER READ

Book #49 | Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

6903105._SY475_Date Added May 12, 2014

I loved Gone Girl and I did already watch the show. So I am pretty excited to cross this one off my TBR.

RESULTS: KEEP

Book #50 | Dare Me by Megan Abbot

12982393

Date Added May 28, 2014

Okay, I was going to toss this but it’s becoming a TV show? So I am going to keep it and read it before the show premieres. Because now I am curious.

RESULTS: KEEP BECAUSE I AM WEAK



Books on my ‘Want to Read‘ shelf” after this purge, 1182

I ended up deleting a few random books off my TBR this week so I actually made a small dent! Which is something I haven’t been doing so this is nice! Hopefully, during the New Year, I can knock off so many more books! I must clear this TBR!
