Down the TBR Hole | Week 3

Tuesday, 24 July 2018
This is a blogging meme created by Lia at Lost in a Story. The aim is 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
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
One of my 2018 resolutions is to reduce my TBR pile, both physically, and the digital one I have created on Goodreads, and this meme will hopefully help!!

Bleak House- Charles Dickens
This is a difficult decision for me, on the one hand I don't really like Dickens all that much, but I've heard that this is his best novel by far, so I am tempted.

Verdict: Keep








War and Peace- Leo Tolstoy
This one isn't so hard as Bleak House, I want to read this at some point in my life, even if the novel is a bit intimidating to hold!!

Verdict: Keep








Going Underground- Susan Vaught
I must have added this novel to my TBR during my YA romance phase. This doesn't look like a particularly interesting read, so its going.

Verdict: Go








Stork- Wendy Delsol
Another YA novel, this time a fantasy novel, this again doesn't look like something I would enjoy anymore.

Verdict: Go









On the Jellicoe Road- Melina Marchetta
This is another YA novel, from extremely popular YA writer Melina Marchetta, but again it just doesn't seem like my thing anymore.

Verdict: Go





Paranormalcy- Kiersten White
I went through a massive YA paranormal phase, and this novel was definitely added to my TBR pile during that phase. I have passed out of that phase, so this doesn't really interest me anymore.

Verdict: Go







Bright Young Things- Anna Godbersen
This is set in 1920s New York so how could I resist?

Verdict: Keep










Interview with the Vampire- Anne Rice
This is a classic, I really need to get around to it soon!

Verdict: Keep










Some Girls Are- Courtney Summers
Another YA romance novel that I don't really fancy anymore!

Verdict: Go









Vixen- Jillian Larkin
 1920s flapper girls...what's not to like??

Verdict: Keep










Have you read any of these novels? Do you agree with me or am I making a terrible mistake?
