Down The TBR Hole #2

Week two of this meme started by Lia over 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?

Here we go:

the-kite-runner

The Kite Runner | by: Khaled Hosseini

The movie based on this book was recommended to me by one of my coworkers a while ago. I still haven’t watched the movie yet either but I am still very interested in reading this. I’ll keep it for now so that I don’t completely forget about it.

Judgment: Keep

odd-thomas

Odd Thomas | by: Dean Koontz

I think I added this because my best friend loves the author. I’m not a huge fan of the mystery/thriller genre though.

Judgement: Go

pride-and-pred

Pride And Prejudice | by: Jane Austen

Not going to lie, I’m not overly interested in reading classic literature most of the time. I’ll read it if I’m ever in the mood but otherwise I doubt it’s ever going to happen.

Judgement: Go

the-tie-travelers-wife

The Time Traveler’s Wife | by: Audrey Niffenegger

This just sounds to interesting to pass up. Time travelling and an out-of-order love story, sounds like something straight out of Doctor Who.

Judgement: Keep

the-notebook

The Notebook | Nicholas Sparks

Another movie that I enjoyed, another book I need to read.

Judgement: Keep
