It’s time to revamp this good old meme here on the blog! My last Down the TBR hole is from July 2018 and although I regularly clean my TBR, a little booktag showed me that this meme is necessary again.
Down the TBR Hole is originally created by Lia @ Lost in a story, unfortunately her blog is no more. This is how it works:
- Go to your “To read” shelf on Goodreads.
- Sort it by “date added” and click on “reverse” so that the oldest addition is on top.
- Pick the top 5 (or more if you love a good challenge) books, read the synopsis and think about whether you want to keep them or if they may go.
- Write in this blog post a little bit about the book and what you decide to do with it.
- Tell us the statistics at the start and at the end.
Unfortunately I can’t get rid of the books on my TBR, because you can’t unhaul ebooks. Oh well, here we go.
- Number of books on my TBR: 218
The horse dancer by Jojo Moyes
This book has been on my TBR since October 2016 and I still haven’t picked it up. I heard that it’s not really exciting and actually way too long. However, horse riding plays an important role in the story and I’m a horse rider myself. However, I think it’s time for this book to go. A little sidenote, I might still read this book once I read another book by this author.
All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr
This book has been on my TBR since October 2016 as well and Honestly, I have nearly picked it up several times. In fact, I planned a buddy read on this. However, I couldn’t push myself to actually read it, so it’s time to say goodbye to this one.
Holding up the universe by Jennifer Niven
Oh I will definitely keep this one. I really loved All the bright places by this author and I’m still curious for Holding up the universe. I want to read this in the first few months of 2020.
See me by Nicholas Sparks
I don’t know how I lost my digital copy, but I lost it. However, I read Dear John back in October and I want to read more books by this author. So, I will fetch myself another copy and read this book.
Everything beautiful is not ruined by Danielle Younge-Ullman
I hear many positive things about this book, but I actually keep forgetting it’s existence. Why? I don’t know. Well, I will read this one very soon now since I’m still interested.
- Number of books examined: 5
- Number of books removed: 2 (40%)
- Number of books kept: 3
- Number of books on my TBR: 216
Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see how this goes, because I still haven’t checked out all 2020 releases.
