Down the TBR Hole #1

Hurray!! A new weekly meme to do!! It is time to start culling my TBR list on GoodReads with this amazing Down the TBR Hole meme by Lia at Lost in a Story!

Most of you probably know this feeling. Your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well, that’s going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 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?

So this is my first week at doing this.
My current TBR count is at 731 books.


Title/Author: The Nanny Diaries (Nanny, #1)
McLaughlin, Emma *

Date Added: March 31, 2015

Thoughts: A nanny, who doesn’t seem to have a name, looking after the screaming toddler of couple called couple X, who live in Manhattan’s upper class.
Why did I think this would be good?

Judgment: Go.

Title/AuthorTo All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, #1) – Han, Jenny *

Date Added: March 31, 2015

Thoughts: A girl who writes her crushes letters and then they get mailed out. Sounds like its going to be corny, but I have heard so many good things about it.

Judgment: Keep.

Title/AuthorThe Secret Between Us – Delinsky, Barbara *

Date Added:  March 31, 2015

Thoughts: Daughter and mother driving home from a party. Daughter hits a man. Mother takes the blame. Whilst it sounds like it would be an interesting read, I no longer think its a book I would enjoy

Judgment: Go.

Title/AuthorClass Reunion – Jaffe, Rona

Date Added:  March 31, 2015

Thoughts: A wonderful book about women’s friendships and the painful reality that as much as you may try, you just can’t go back in time. I think I just added every book I saw on this day.

Judgment: Go.

    1. Haha I found someone with more the me the other day! Made me feel better.
      I seriously just think random books jump on our TBR piles. I always feel bad kicking them off my TBR list. Like I’m sorry, it’s not you it’s me, I found something better.

  2. I like this meme, however I’ve at the beginning gone through my tbr list and cleared everything out I didn’t want on it. So the work is done! It’s also only at 250 books, yours is impressive!
