Happy Friday Junior, everyone! I’m happy to have been able to write and post another fun Down the TBR Hole post for you guys! And who am I kidding? Making posts for this meme has been very productive for me as well! I mean, can you think of a more entertaining way to clean up your crazy TBR shelf? Keep reading to see which books will be staying, and which will be going this week!
For those of you hearing about this meme for the first time, here’s some more info from the blog of the creator, Lia @ Lost in a Story:
Down The TBR Hole is a meme that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.
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 (or even more!) 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?
Veronica Rossi’s Under the Never Sky
I’ve been told that the romance in this book is epic. I’m not too crazy about any of the covers for this book, but we all know not to judge a book by its cover, right? And since I really like reading science fiction, Under the Never Sky shall be:
Mark Salisbury’s Crimson Peak: The Art of Darkness
Ugh, Crimson Peak is one of my favourite movies! Seriously. I remembered while making this post that I had been meaning to request a copy for review. So, fingers crossed! It’s definitely:
Mark Beauregard’s The Whale: A Love Story
I was going to remove this book from the list, until I looked over its Goodreads page again, and realized that it involves Nathaniel Hawthorne (one of my favourite writers), and that it’s an LGBT love story! It’s:
Lyndsay Faye’s Jane Steele
While I love Jane Eyre, and will be reading at least two Jane Eyre retellings this year, I am not so sure about this one anymore. I’m down for the murder, but I also really liked the romantic plot in the original. So, unless one of your convinces me otherwise, this one is:
Erica Laurie’s Eun Na and the Phantom
If you’ve been following me for a while, you might have noticed that I love Korean dramas. (New followers might not have realized, since I haven’t watched, or posted about Korean things for a while due to work and my reading schedule). Since this is basically a South Korean historical drama + romance in book form, it is 100 percent:
THANK YOU FOR READING THIS DOWN THE TBR HOLE POST! ARE ANY OF THESE BOOKS ON YOUR TBR LIST? WHY? WHY NOT? OR WERE THEY ON YOUR LIST BEFORE YOU REMOVED THEM FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!
