Down The TBR Hole #1: Conquer your TBR

 

I saw the most AMAZING post from LOST IN A STORY with the most AMAZING idea to help cut down my ridiculously large TBR! Thank you so much for creating this post!!

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: (straight from original post)

  • 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?

Every week I will be going through 10 books on my Goodreads TBR and purging as many as I feel comfortable with. Most likely these posts will go up on a Wednesday. Currently I have 300 to go through and this number is always being added to, so hopefully this will help a lot.

THE BOOKS:

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO BY STIEG LARSSON

I definitely want to get to this book. I’ve heard so many good things about this series I can’t let go.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE BY AUDREY NIFFENEGGER

I’ve attempted reading this book a few times, but just wasn’t able to get into it. I think it’s about time.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

SPEAK BY LAURIE HALSE ANDERSON

Awful I know but I saw the movie a few years back and it didn’t keep my interest so if a book has to go…

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

THE ALCHEMIST BY PAULO COELHO

I’m on the edge with this one… it’s really a toss up. I don’t see myself being in any mood to read it anytime so though.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

THE ROAD BY CORMAC MCCARTHY

I’m still very interested in this book so it’s going to stay on my list until I find a chance to get to it.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

IN A HEARTBEAT BY ROSALIND NOONAN

The concept of this book interests me, but I just don’t see myself getting to it anytime soon.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

LIFEGUARD BY JAMES PATTERSON 

This books sounds pretty good, but honestly I own so many other James Patterson books that sound better. I’m thinking this one won’t win any of my time.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

TOYS BY JAMES PATTERSON

I only bought this one because of the author. I’m sure it was an impulse buy and after reading the synopsis I don’t seem interested in it anymore.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

ALONG FOR THE RIDE BY SARAH DESSEN

I absolutely adore Sarah Dessen and want to read all her books at some point. This book sounds wonderful as do all of hers.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

FLY AWAY HOME BY JENNIFER WEINER

Though the synopsis sounds interesting I’m not really into these types of books lately. I do own this one so I’ll either pass it along to my mom or off to the used book store it goes.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

This week I chose to keep only 3/10 books, which I feel is a GREAT start! Hopefully I can keep up this momentum.

If you like this idea please go to LOST IN A STORY’S blog post, show some love, and let her know you are joining in!!

  1. I also very recently started Down the TBR Hole. It’s so helpful! I’ll admit I really loved The Time Traveler’s Wife, but if you’ve attempted it, then I totally get ditching it. I’ve never seen the Speak movie, but the book is pretty phenomenal if it ever interests you again…not that I’m trying to dissuade you from cutting down on your TBR ;). Great list of books.
