Down The TBR Hole #17: 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 GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS BY M. R. CAREY

This book still intrigues me.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

AFTER WE WELL BY ANNA TODD

I got so annoyed with the relationship in the book, I think I’m done for now.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

THE CHRISTY MILLER COLLECTION VOLUME 1

I’m not in the mood for contemporary books at the moment.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

LOVE LIES BENEATH BY ELLEN HOPKINS

I love Ellen Hopkins and will be getting to this one.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

KETCHUP CLOUDS BY ANNABEL PITCHER

The synopsis of this one sounds too good to get rid of.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

AN EMBER IN THE ASHES BY SABAA TAHIR

I’m not in the mood for this one anymore.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HERE BY PATRICK NESS

Patrick Ness is so talented I need to read this.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

OFF THE PAGE BY JODI PICOT AND SAMANTHA VAN LEER

Oh look, another Jodi Picoult book I will be keeping.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

MAYBE SOMEDAY BY COLLEEN HOOVER

I do want to read Colleen Hoover, but I’m pretty sure I have other books of hers on here I would like to get to first.

THE JUDGMENT: BYE

THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP BY MARIE KONDO

I love this one, I read some and definitely want to read the whole thing.

THE JUDGMENT: KEEP

This week I chose to keep only 6/10 books. Same as last week, not too bad.

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 buy way too many books, so my TBR shelf is slightly heavier, because I feel like I have to read them all! So I start most of them and then decide whether I want to finish them or return them for a refund. The problem is, I have lots of books I read only through 10%! It doesn’t bother me much, because often you learn quite a lot from a nonfiction book if you read 10% πŸ™‚ Fiction is trickier, because I forget the names of the characters and what I learned in the story. So I try to go back and finish some of them while the memories are still fresh, and then when I come back to the ones I forget about, I read the beginning again πŸ™‚

  2. What is this book by Ellen Hopkins and why have I not heard of it before?! I’m flabbergasted. I thought I knew every book she’s written. Who am I even more?! Now I’ve got to rethink my total existence. Okay, maybe a little dramatic, but for real. I’m upset I haven’t heard of this one before.

  3. I love this meme! I don’t want to turn you off from reading it, but The Girl with All the Gifts disappointed the crap out of me…it starts out SO WELL and then takes a dive. But, I think you should totally give it a try and judge for yourself – I hope you love it!
