Down the TBR Hole #1


Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story . It is an amazing fun way to cut down your tbr. I want to shout out Boston Book Reader because through her I found this. I’m not sure if I’ll be doing this weekly or monthly but hopefully I do it often.

What to do: (straight from original post)
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?

My goodreads tbr is currently at 1404 and I think I add at least one book to it almost every day. So it’s not going to get any smaller without some help. I have a feeling a lot of these are series and I can probably cut down by taking off series books unless it’s the book I’m on or at least a series I’ve started.


The Lucky One by Nicholas Spark

I have still yet to read a Nicholas Sparks book and it sounds like something I might like.

Verdict: Keep


Books 2 and 3 are from The Vampire Diaries Series by LJ Smith

I don’t even need to think about it, these are gone.

Verdict: Remove

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Verdict: keep all classics


The next books are actually Harry Potter by JK Rowling and it’s books 2-7

Verdict: Keep because we all know I need to read these.


Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris

This is book 2 in the Sookie Stackhouse books and I want to at least attempt to read this series. I liked the first book. Plus I own the whole series already so it deserves a chance.

Verdict: Keep


I feel like I’m off to a bad start. I’m keep everything. This is why my tbr is so big, I have issues letting go.


I had all of the books in the Fallen by Lauren Kate series and since I haven’t started any of them I took all of them off but the first book.

So this week I have taken off 6 books. I have a shelf on goodreads for books I don’t want to read so I won’t add them back on again.


How many books are on your tbr?
