Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.
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 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?
Ehhhhhhhhhh. Time travel? Meh. I like it, but it’s not always my thing in the written form.
Eh. Again, it sounds fun, but I don’t really think it’s me anymore.
Yeah, no. It doesn’t look like it’s my kind of story anymore.
Okay, this one still sounds pretty interesting to me. Historical fiction set in the 12th century? Totally interesting to me.
I own this on my Kindle, but I don’t know if I’m interested in it anymore. I’m going to remove it, but one day I might get to it on my Kindle.
See the above note because it’s the same deal.
The description for this name dropped Bleak House, Perfume, and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. Like, those are huge names to throw around. But, it still sounds like it might be interesting for me to try one day.
Unless a colleague or teacher recommends this to me, this one’s going bye-bye.
Oh, Oscar. I actually own this book but I hate reading collections. Why? Because I get tired of the author and never want to pick them up again. I’ll keep this on my TBR for now, but I’d likely only read a thing or two out of this at a time.
Oh, this story. I know a little bit about it and, really, it still sounds super interesting to me. The psychology of what happened is so interesting.
Last TBR: 1956

Another week of success with this challenge! I think I might be able to weed it down to 1899 by the end of the year!
As always, were there any I got rid of and shouldn’t have?
What do you think of my odd taste in books?
