DOWN THE TBR HOLE #7: 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:

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

I’m just not interested in this type of story anymore.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloane

I don’t see myself getting to this anytime soon.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Maybe at some point I will get to this, but not soon.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I do want to get to this one, I won’t say soon though.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

Suicide Note by Teresa Mummert

I’m not interested in this book anymore.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

I do want to read a book by A.S. King, but maybe another one would interest me more.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

I love John Green and definitely want to get to this one.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson

I’m not feeling this book right now.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

Poison Study by Marie V. Snyder

I’ve heard so many great things about this series, I feel like I need to read it soon.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

I love Jodi Picoult, and I want to read all of her books.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

This week I chose to keep only 4/10 books. This isn’t bad at all.

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. Quite a few of these have been on my TBR before I decided to let them go lol. I’ve been dying to read Poison Study for the longest time but haven’t gotten around to it for one reason or another but hopefully I’ll pick it up soon! Also, I personally wasn’t a fan of An Abundance of Katherines but I hope you enjoy it!

  2. I have started doing something similar to this, but since my TBR is so massive I am going over 30 books with each post and deciding which to keep and which to eliminate from my want to read list.

    Good luck with cleaning up your TBR pile over the next several weeks.
