It’s time for another Down the TBR Hole post! Yas! Also, TGIF everyone! What are your weekend plans? It’s my birthday on Monday, so my boyfriend, my sis, and some close friends are taking me to the big city for dinner at a fancy place we’ve been eyeing, and then some shenanigans around our AirBnB apartment. Maybe I’ll write a blog post about it, since it kind of counts as travel, and we might go to this Harry Potter bar again, haha. Should be fun! But, less rambles, and back to this post. Please, continue 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?
Kendare Blake’s Three Dark Crowns
I won an ARC of this book maybe two years ago? It was supposed to arrive before the book was published, so that I could read and review it in time, but it came maybe 6 months after that? By that point, I had to focus on books that were on my schedule, and well…here we are. Since I own a copy though, it’ll be:
Anna-Marie McLemore’s The Weight of Feathers
I’m so conflicted about this one! I was really excited about this one when I first got the e-book, buuuut I’m really hesitant to read e-books now, because I prefer reading physical books, and it’s affected my experience with (and therefore my review for a) book in the past. I’ll keep it for now, but have no idea when I’ll be getting to it. SIGH.
Naomi Novik’s Uprooted
This is one I’m not conflicted at all about. It’s been on my TBR for some time, I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, and I received a copy for Christmas in 2016. I will try really hard to read this book this year, especially since the sequel just came out (or is coming out very soon). I’m not 100% sure because I didn’t request it due to my schedule, and due to having to read this prequel first as well.
Isaac Marion’s The New Hunger
Another one that I’m conflicted about. I enjoyed the book Warm Bodies, but actually enjoyed the film adaptation a lot more because it was more romantic. I did buy this book in a Book Outlet haul I think last year, though, so maybe I really should read it anyway? It’s quite short…so maybe this year. We’ll see…haha. It’s also a prequel, so I’m not sure how much I care, since I really just want to know what happened with the main characters…
Isaac Marion’s The Burning World
This book I don’t own, but I am more likely to read next because I think it features the main characters from the first book, and their continuation of their story, as well as what happens to their world. But since, like I said, I don’t own it…who knows when I’ll get to it. I don’t feel too motivated right now, but for now it’s:
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!
