Down The TBR Hole | Week 1

Tuesday, 15 August 2017
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?
I have a terrible habit of adding novels to my Goodreads TBR all the time, most of which I don't own, currently I have 1350 books on it, which is a little intimidating! I don't actually own all these novels, hence the reason I want to go through them and clear some out that I know I don't want to read anymore!

Lets get right on with it!!

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight- Jennifer E Smith

I added this novel to my TBR when it was popular, and I just never got around to actually buying and reading it. However, it does look like quite a cute, easy read, maybe perfect for a holiday!

Verdict: Keep

Revolution- Jennifer Donnelly

This is an intriguing novel with a split narrative between present day New York, and Paris in the 1700-1800s. I love historical reads, and I do still want to read this at some time!

Verdict: Keep

A Million Suns- Beth Revis

This is the second book in the Across the Universe trilogy. I own, and have read the first novel and I've always meant to get the trilogy finished.

Verdict: Keep

Daughter of Smoke and Bone- Laini Taylor

This is another novel that I added to my TBR during the hype, and just never got around to actually reading. However, having gone back and read the blurb, I don't think this is a novel I want to read anymore.

Verdict: Go

Royally Crushed- Niki Burnham

This is a bind up of the first 3 novels in this series, according to the Goodreads blurb its a romantic story about a girl and a Prince or something. I'm pretty sure I will never actually read this novel.

Verdict: Go

The Summer I Turned Pretty- Jenny Han

I'm not sure why I added this to my TBR, reading the blurb, I don't think I'll enjoy a YA novel about a girl choosing between 2 brothers, so this one is definitely going.

Verdict: Go

Night World No.1- L.J Smith

When I was younger I went through a Paranormal phase. It began with Twilight being released and I must have added this to my TBR at that time. It's no longer a genre I'm interested in, so this is an easy decision to make.

Verdict: Go

Graceling- Kristin Cashore

This looks like an intriguing novel, it reminds me a little of the Healer series by Maria V Snyder. I think I would enjoy this novel so hopefully I can get to it soon!

Verdict: Keep

Prophecy of the Sisters- Michelle Zink

First of all I just want to mention the cover of this novel, I think its gorgeous, and really creepy!! According to the blurb on Goodreads it's a YA novel about 2 twins and a prophecy. This is a novel that I would have been really interested in a few years ago, but it's not really my thing anymore!

Verdict: Go

I really like this meme, and I desperately need to reduce my TBR shelf, so hopefully this helps!

Thanks for reading!
