Down the TBR Hole is a meme hosted by Lost in a Story that revolves around clearing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.
Here’s how it works:
– Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
– Order on ascending date added.
– Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
– Read the synopses of the books
– Decide: keep it or should it go?
Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
A book set in the 1920s in New York City? I’m surprised at myself for not having read this sooner because it sounds like the kind of book I would give 5 stars to in a heartbeat. Verdict: staying on the list
Daughter of Xanadu by Dori Jones Yang
Historical fiction in the time of Marco Polo with a kickass warrior girl? Sign me up. Verdict: staying on the list
The Lost Crown by Sarah Miller
This book has been staring at me from my TBR pile for the longest time and I swear I’m going to pick it up and read it soon. Verdict: staying on the list
The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
Reading the synopsis now, I don’t feel as drawn to it as I did when I first added it to my TBR all those years ago. Maybe I’ll come back to it one day, but for now I have no interest. Verdict: leaving the list
In the Shadow of the Lamp by Susanne Dunlap
This one sounds amazing and I feel like I’m going to feel so much heartbreak while reading it, so it’s perfect for me. Verdict: staying on the list
Staying on the list: 4
Leaving the list: 1
