Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by 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.
- 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?
Now for the list:
Picking up where I left off:
This is a humorous fantasy story about a Chosen One on a quest to save a princess. This book seems to be filled with classic fantasy tropes all turned on their head, or with a humorous spin. I really like the sound of this book, it seems like something right up my alley. I also saw a good review for the audiobook, so I went ahead and bought it on Audible with one of my credits. I look forward to listening!
This book, for having such a short description, sounds so intriguing. It’s short, only 194 pages, about a girl who is going through something- mood swing, obscene thoughts, the urge to harm others. It’s been labeled as horror, paranormal, and a thriller. I’ll be curious to see what my thoughts are.
I have yet to read any full-length-novel of Jackson’s. I’ve read a short story or two and I did enjoy her writing. I had this on my list before the television series came out, but even so, I’ve heard that it’s nothing like this book. My co-worker read it and found it to be quite boring. I don’t know what to think, since Jackson is considered a master of the horror genre. Should it stay on my list? If any of you have read it, and can recommend it, let me know. Otherwise, I’ll go ahead and take it off the list for now.
Not only does this book have excellent ratings, I also saw it recommended by a doctor, as well, as a great book. I do enjoy reading nonfiction like this, where I’m sure to learn a lot about something I don’t know much about. I’m also bit worried this will make me paranoid about germs and viruses and getting sick, but the more you know, right?
This is a historical fiction novel set during WWII about a young woman who winds up working for an advice columnist who doesn’t want to respond to any “unpleasant” letters, so she ends up personally responding to all these letters from various women who are worried, upset, etc. This book has been compared to the Guernesy Literary and Potato Peel Society, which I also have on my list. I don’t normally like to read books set during WWII, but this one still sounds interesting to me, so I’ll keep it for now.
So, what do you think? Any books I cut that you wouldn’t? Any books that I’m keeping that aren’t worth my time? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you. See you next week for another meme post.
