Down the TBR Hole #17

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. 🙂

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
I really loved The Girl on the Train, but I just don’t really get excited thinking about this one. REMOVE.

Page Turner by Barbara Kyle
I’m not sure if I’ll ever get around to writing a novel, but this book just isn’t a priority. REMOVE.

Beloved by Toni Morrison
Feels like a must-read. KEEP.

Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman
For some reason I thought this had a queer plotline, but it doesn’t so I don’t care. REMOVE.

How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake
Here’s the queer book I was looking for. KEEP.

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr
Weh, I just don’t feel terribly interested in this. REMOVE.

The Leavers by Lisa Ko
I think this is worth giving a shot. KEEP.

It’s Always the Husband by Michele Campbell
Again, I just don’t feel interested. REMOVE.

On Such a Full Sea by Chang-rae Lee
Conflicting reviews, and only one of my friends has read it. REMOVE.

Nasty Women edited by 404 Ink
Looks like a super interesting anthology. KEEP.

I managed to remove 6 out of 10 books today. Any decisions you would have made differently?
