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?

The Pillars of the Earth (Kingsbridge, #1)

This is one of those books that sounds really interesting and as if I’d really like it, but I also don’t know if I want to read it and devote the time to it. Maybe I’ll read it one day, but for now:

Verdict: GO!

Under the Dome

I love Stephen King, so I think that I kind of have to read this. You know? I want to read all his stuff, even if I DNF/don’t like it.

Verdict: Keep

The Psychology of Harry Potter: An Unauthorized Examination Of The Boy Who Lived

Nah. Totally over this since I’d rather psychologically examine the characters myself.

Verdict: GO!

Our Mutual Friend

This is another Stephen King thing for me. I like Dickens so I really want to try to read all his major works.

Verdict: Keep


I didn’t plan on wanting to read this one when I was opening all the tabs for the ten books I was doing today, but when I read the description of it I knew I had to.

Verdict: Keep

Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorders Sourcebook

Another sourcebook, damn. I think we know this one.

Verdict: GO!

Salvage the Bones

I tried a Jesmyn Ward book earlier and it didn’t interest me, so I’m not that interested in reading this one. I might change my mind one day.

Verdict: GO!

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, #1)

Eh. I’ve heard great things about this book, but I’m not that interested in reading it.

Verdict: GO!

Something Pretty, Something Beautiful

Is it just me or does that car on the cover remind you of Dean’s Impala? Anyways, it sounds interesting to me. A group of teen boys (never a good thing) and a leader who wants them to do worse and worse things (that’s not even close to good).

Verdict: Keep


Again, this is a book that so many people have talked about, but ehhhh. I don’t really want to read a book about this topic narrated by a kid.

Verdict: GO!

Last TBR: 2091

Books kept: 4

Books removed: 6

Current TBR: 2093

Me and my TBR

Dammit. I blame Netgalley and adding some of the books to my TBR.
