Down the TBR Hole #12

New year and time to go through this list again. I am determined to get this shelf down to books I will actually read in the future.

This was originally created by Lost in a Story and seems like a good way to go through some of my TBR on Goodreads and see what is there and what I can get rid of or push me to start reading. 
Links will be  on the titles for the books Goodreads page. (I am going to do ten for this round of this tag).

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 or 15 or 20, if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next time

TBR – #258

Between the Lines – Jodi Picoult– At first glance of the cover I had no idea why I placed this on my list. After reading the summary I know exactly why. The whole idea of having a book boyfriend and then him actually being real and wanting out. I love it and think it would be a sweet and fun read.
Decision: Keep (I have both books in my shelf so I am going to round this up as a keep for both)

Life of Pi- Yann Martel – I have seen this movie and really enjoyed it. I don’t know though if and when I will ever get to the book. I felt like the movie gave a clear story and I don’t know if reading it will add anything. I am going to take it off for now but I do want to read it one day.
Decision: Remove

Bones Omnibus – Mark Wheaton- Something about a dog who takes out demons. But all in one volume? I am not quite sure what this is and how it got on my list.
Decision: Remove

Revolution – Jennifer Donnelly – I like the idea of past and present connecting but honestly I don’t see myself reading this anytime soon. It sounds interesting but not enough to keep on the list.
Decision: Remove

Angelfall – Susan Ee – I love the idea of an angel like apocalypse. I like the idea of angels being good and bad.
Decision: Keep

The Fireman – Joe Hill – I have read two other books by Joe Hill and I really enjoyed them. I really want to get to this one, once I am ready for a scary book.
Decision: Keep

The Invention of Murder: How the Victorian’s Revealed in Death and Detection and Created Modern Crime – Judith Flanders – A whole book about how murder led to detective stories and the history behind it all sounds fascinating.
Decision: Keep

A Murder in Time – Julie McElwain – I like the time travel idea but the rest doesn’t sounds that interesting. She time travels and solves a mystery but it doesn’t sound like anything connects.
Decision: Remove

A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Mass – This one is everywhere. I have it on my physical shelf and I really want to read it soon. I just need to be in the mood to go through what is out of the series.
Decision: Keep

Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Lani Taylor – Another one I have head a ton about. I really want to get to it too but again need to be ready to dive into a full series.
Decision: Keep

Remove: 4
TBR-249 (I noticed again that Goodreads had on my TBR list a handful of books that should be on my Read list. I fixed those and thus the number doesn’t quite add up right)

  1. Haha yes I have noticed I tend to do that when I read other similar posts. Which is why I feel like these down the TBR posts may never end!

  2. I really need to do one of these TBR clean-outs–such a good idea! Also the Between the Lines book sounds great. Maybe a danger of reading these Down the TBR posts is you end up adding MORE books to your TBR 😑
