Down the TBR Hole

Down the TBR Hole

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!


  • 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?

Top Ten Tuesday – Characters That Remind Me of Myself

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

I’m nearly 100% sure that I’ve done a tag or answered a question around these lines. But, I couldn’t find anything when I searched for a post. So, either way, let’s see the characters that remind me of me!

Also, I’m breaking the rules. Not all of these are book characters! Why? Because I watch a lot of TV.

First Lines Friday and a review

First Lines Friday

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

April Wrap-up


What a month. I finished my first year of grad school and my sister passed away. I’m taking a break to breathe, but I will be around. I’m just trying to relearn what works for me in my grieving process since I don’t want to be on too much and I still want to be around since I love all of you.

But, let’s go ahead and have that closer look at what I read this month.
