Down the TBR hole #5

down the TBR hole

Down the TBR Hole is a weekly meme hosted by Lia @Lost in a Story. These are the 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
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

(I’m doing a softcore version of this, and some books will end up on my “maybe” shelf!)

TBR count after the last post: 496

Current TBR count: 503

(whyyyyyyyy does this keep happening!!! I sweAR THIS IS WHY I SHOULDN’T BE TRUSTED TO RUN MY OWN GOODREADS)

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

I keep seeing this cover everywhere but I’d actually forgotten what the blurb said until now when I read it again. I actually didn’t realize this was YA? Also the concept is really Great and a few trusted friends have liked it.

KEEP

Luck in the Shadows by Lynn Flewelling

Ah, the famous Nightrunner series. I wouldn’t be interested in this book if it wasn’t for the 357837.3 people who have personally recommended it to me. It looks a lot like a fantasy book from the Nineties (that’s because it is) and that kind of intimidates me but also I want to trust my friends.

KEEP

Sacred Fate by Eressë

Why is the blurb written……..like that? I’m just going to assume the book is also written Like That

REMOVE

The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar

I’m not interested in it all to be honest, but 2015 me bought it on a whim, and me being me I bought it as ebook so I can’t even sell it or anything. I suppose maybe I’ll get to it in the distant future, I also just want to keep it in my GR shelves because I like keeping track of what I own and haven’t read yet.

MAYBE

  1. Wow, great unhauling of your TBR ^_^ We tend to grow out of older reading phases or become more jaded (lol), so I think cleaning up our TBRs with books we put on from years ago is a good thing.
    Good luck not adding too much more this week 😉 I can’t fault you though, I’ve been trying to stay under 650 and I finally tipped over this week… and I can’t find anything to remove!! I’ll just have to read faster ^_^
