Down the TBR Hole #16

Started by Lost in a Story, the most fun way to cut down that TBR!

The rules:

  • 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?

I’ve seen several other folks change up their formatting for this, so I’ve decided to give it a shot as well! Let me know if you preferred my old formatting more or have any other suggestions for me. 🙂

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
I honestly cannot believe I haven’t read this yet and hope I get to it very soon. KEEP.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews, and honestly just don’t have any interest. REMOVE.

The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel
I’ve really been looking forward to this one! I’m from New England and my dad is super into survivalists, so I’d like to read this and get him a copy to read as well. KEEP.

10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac
The book only interests me because the MC is a LBPQ girl and the reviews make it seem highly mediocre. REMOVE.

Cold Summer by Gwen Cole
The plot doesn’t interest me and none of my friends have reviewed it. That cover is gorg and other people seem to love it, but I don’t think it’s for me. REMOVE.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
Obviously everyone is obsessed with this one, and it does look super cute. KEEP.

The Polygamist’s Daughter by Anna LeBaron and Leslie Wilson
Why are cults so fascinating? I don’t know. This sounds horrifying, but interesting. KEEP.

Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life by Steven C. Hayes and Spencer Smith
This has positive reviews, but I’m just not interested right now. REMOVE.

Wenjack by Joseph Boyden and Kent Monkman
This sounds good, is very highly-rated, and is very short. KEEP.

Universal Harvester by John Darnielle
This book has a lower rating in general, but is pretty highly rated by my friends. And the premise is interesting. KEEP.

I only managed to remove 4 out of 10 books today. Any decisions you would have made differently?
