Down the TBR Hole #6

Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 7.12.53 PM

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 youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
– Read the synopsesof the books
– Decide: keep it or should it go?

Matched (Matched, #1)

Matched by Ally Condie
This one is going to have to go. I remember reading the begininng once in Indigo and it never did much for me. Also, I’m not really into the synopsis. Verdict: leaving the list



Scandal (Private, #11)

Scandal by Kate Brian
I have such nostalgia for this series and once my reading schedule calms down a little bit next month I want to be able to finish this series one day. Verdict: staying on the list



Perfect Mistake (Privilege, #3)

Perfect Mistake by Kate Brian
Ariana’s spin-off series always interested me so much more than Reed’s story because she’s literally insane and there’s a lot going on with her character. Verdict: staying on the list



The Lying Game (The Lying Game, #1)

The Lying Game by Sara Shepard
I loved the first books of the Pretty Little Liars series, and this sounds like it would be along the same lines so I’m down. Verdict: staying on the list



The Time Traveler's Wife

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
I remember going to watch this in theatres and I loved it. The trailer made me cry, so I think you can imagine that there were a lot of tears during the movie. May as well read the book and add to the amount of tears I’ve shed over this. Verdict: staying on the list


Staying on the list: 4
Leaving the list: 1

Are there any books you think I should have given a chance to? Any you think I should be ditching? Let me know what you think down in the comments below!

    I watched the PLL tv series (and was riveted despite my intense complaints for the plot holes and randomness and dramatics) but never touched the books. I think I could only accept that kind of drama onscreen, when I can multitask and tune out the worst, most unbelievable parts. The Lying Game… I didn’t really look into? I think PLL twisted my mind up enough haha. But if you like that style, then certainly keep!

        I would hope the book had less plot holes! Ahh that’s upsetting to hear. I know sometimes when a book series is adapted, the author is pressured or influenced to continue the series and gets deadlines from the tv company. Maybe Shepherd couldn’t keep her old quality because of that demand. (Or the simple fact that she is trying to spin an smaller series out that she never planned to)
