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?

Unsinkable: The Full Story Of The RMS Titanic

I’ve always had a small obsession with the Titanic. Always. Ever since I was a kid. And, I really would like to read this, even though it’s small for a full history.

Verdict: Keep

The Book of Strange New Things

The reviews for this aren’t thrilling. And the description sounds pretty boring. It’s one of those I could like, but it just doesn’t sell itself well.

Verdict: GO!

The Peripheral

Eh? Sounds like a Black Mirror episode, but in a boring way.

Verdict: GO!


Meh? Sounds a bit boring.

Verdict: GO!

Doomed Queens

I’ve read too many books like this one tbh.

Verdict: GO!

The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany

This is one of those books I really want to read, even though it’d take me about three to six months.

Verdict: Keep

Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII

I’ve heard iffy things about this book. Lots of mixed reviews. I’m going to remove it for now, but one day I might read it anyways.

Verdict: GO!

Falls the Shadow (Falls the Shadow #1)

The reviews for this one aren’t that great, but that cover is fantastic.

Verdict: GO!

Fearscape (Horrorscape, #1)

I’ve been wanting to read this for ages and I have it on my Kindle. I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet.

Verdict: Keep

The Last Queen

I’d rather read about Juana in a nonfiction book.

Verdict: GO!

Last TBR: 1560

Books kept: 3

Books removed: 7

Current TBR: 1552

I shock myself sometimes by actually keeping my damn TBR down so much.

Talk to me!
Have you read any of these books?
Should I have kept any that I removed?
