Down the TBR Hole #1

My TBR is currently 412 books according to goodreads. And that’s after I’ve really been trying to cut it down a few months ago, it just seem to fill up again because there’s so many good or interesting books out there. And they all take too much time to read. I’ve been thinking of a few different ways to cut down my TBR, but found I really enjoyed this way after seeing it on multiple blogs, so why don’t start here!


  • 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?

Infinity (Chronicles of Nick #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Date added: July 2015


The main character is 14 years old and goodreads friends hasn’t liked it, along with never having heard of it since. On the other hand it has an average rating of 4/5 stars.

This has to go

People like us by Dana Mele

Date: November 2017


I thought I would let this go, but I just reread the synopsis and some reviews and while I’ve seen quite bad reviews on it, it’s also mentioned as a sapphic mystery. I have to read it now?


More than this by Patrick Ness

Date: before October 2016 sometime


I get that many people like or love this book, but while I like the plot of Patrick Ness’ other books, his writing doesn’t match with me.

Probably let go

The witch hunter by Virginia Boecker

Date: May 2015


The synopsis advertise it to people who like Graceling (MEE), but I’ve started this book before and been like “meeh”, before putting it down quickly. I didn’t really give it the try it deserve?

Keep and give another try

Opposition (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Date: July 2016


I kind of have no interest of reading this book, but it’s the fifth and last book in the series, so why not just finish it.


Do you agree with my choices? Let me know

    I’ve just recently started this as well and am loving it. I thought getting rid of books on my TBR would be sad but its actually so refreshing. I hope you can feel that way too 🙂

    Opposition is a great finale, so it’s good that you’re keeping it!
