Down The TBR Hole #4: 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. Here are my next ten books!

THE BOOKS:

AFTER BY AMY EFAW

This book just isn’t on my radar anymore so I think you know what that means.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

DARE ME BY MEGAN ABBOTT

I am still interested in this one, even after all the years I’ve added it.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

SECOND GLANCE BY JODI PICOULT

Jodi is one of my favorite authors, so anything left on my TBR by her will definitely be read at some point.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

CONFESSIONS OF A MURDER SUSPECT BY JAMES PATTERSON

This one sounds OK, but I’m being cut throat here and saying see ya to the just OK books.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

BOSSYPANTS BY TINA FEY

I do still want to read this book. I’m thinking maybe listening to it on audiobook during an upcoming readathon.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

ROOM BY EMMA DONOGHUE

I’m pulling most book readers hated moves and saying I saw the movie, loved it, and am not interested in reading the book anymore.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

THE GATHERING BY KELLEY ARMSTRONG

I used to be really into these types of books, but I don’t see myself reading them, at least not anytime soon.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

FALLING FOR YOU BY LISA SCHROEDER

After reading the synopsis, I just don’t feel as drawn to this book as when I added it.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

EMPTY BY K.M. WALTON

13565858.jpg

I’m not in the mood for this one, and I don’t see the mood coming back for a while at least.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

THE HOBBIT BY J.R.R. TOLKIEN

I can’t say the want to read this one has ever slowed down. I’m not sure why I still have it on my TBR and not my read shelf yet.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

This week I chose to keep only 4/10 books. That’s 1 less book than last week!! 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 think I’m going to need to do this. I have 700+ books on my TBR list. I’m always super picky about getting rid of books but I think it’s time to crack down and get it down to a decent size. You’re so lucky yours is only at 300.

  2. I love reading these every week when you post them. πŸ™‚ I’m soooo glad you decided to keep The Hobbit, had a mini heart attack when I saw it and thought you might not keep it on your tbr lol. It’s brilliant!
