Down The TBR Hole #6: 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:

Torn by Cat Clarke

After reading the synopsis I just don’t see myself wanting to pick this up anytime soon.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill

I think this book sounds absolutely adorable.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

Crash by Nicole Williams

I feel like I’ve read so many books with a similar synopsis, I’m just not in the mood for more.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

The Fame Game by Lauren Conrad

While I enjoy this type of story, I haven’t picked one up in a very long time. I just don’t see this book changing my mind.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

My Soul To Take by Rachel Vincent

I don’t think this book is for me anymore.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I just read my first Jennifer L. Armentrout, and loved it, so I will definitely be picking this one up soon.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

Beneath The Glitter by Elle & Blair Fowler

This is just another book I’m not interested in anymore and have sitting on my TBR shelf.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

I’m just not interested in this at the moment.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

I’m not interested in reading this one anymore.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

Love The One Your With by Emily Giffin

I really enjoy Emily Giffin’s novels, and I feel this will be no exception.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

This week I chose to keep only 3/10 books. That’s unreal to me, I’m such a hoarder of books and I think I’m making huge progress.

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. This is a neat idea! I might need to do this because my TBR on Goodreads is out of control right now. I don’t even remember adding some books to that list it was so many years ago and my tastes in books have changed significantly. The only book on your list that I know of that is also on my TBR is We Need to Talk About Kevin, it’s been sitting on there forever and I’ve wanted to read it, but it just keeps getting pushed to the back. Ah well. XD Great post!
