Today I’m going to join the “Down The TBR Hole”, a meme by Lia @ Lost In A Story, checking 10 books on my TBR and trying to get rid of the ones I’m not going to read any time soon!
- 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?
Since I have all the books I want to read now in the first 35 books on the shelf I’m going to start from there:
172 Hous On The Moon
by Johan Harstad
It’s a science fiction, YA and horror novel. The book is set on the Moon and deals with three teens that won a lottery, so they become the first young people in space. It’s a great opportunity, but they’ll learn that something’s waiting for them on the Moon.
I have to say I’m not convinced because the horror part. I’m like all about science-fiction and YA, but I don’t enjoy horror books that much, so I’m going to get rid of it.
The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks
I’ve always loved novels related to the second world war and this is not one! I thought it was, but now that I’ve read again the plot there’s no hint of that war
Horrostor by Grady Hendrix
It’s a mystery/horror set in a furniture store. It has some cool ikea vibes, it has some illustrations in it and it seems cool, so I’m going to keep it!
The Rule Of Thoughts by James Dashner
This is the sequel to Virtnet Runner and I didn’t super like it, so I’m going to let it go. The only problem is that I’ve already bought it, so if I really don’t know what to read I’m going to read it.
Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
It’s a fiction mystery novel and I’ve heard SO MANY GREAT THINGS about it. The cover is gorgeous and the description is so intriguing, so I’m surely going to keep it.
Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber
Ok, now you can say it for me! This is a mystery novel! WHY DO I HAVE SO MANY MYSTERIES! I like the cover, but from the description it doesn’t seem “for me”, so I’m going to let it go.
Feral Youth by Brandy Colbert and many many other authors
I love the cover and it’s a collection of short YA stories, do I have to add more reasons to keep it? In this book we follow a group of teens who are sent to Zepplin Band, a camp for trouble youth and these are their stories!
Strange the dreamer by Laini Taylor
It’s a fantasy YA novel and there are so many good reviews about this book! Also I there’s a young librarian in the book more 50 points to Strangethedreammindor! The cover is gorgeous so definetely going to keep it!
Rooms by Lauren Oliver
It’s a paranormal fantasy afult book and I probably. msarkedas to read beacause I thought it was Room. Now that i’ve read the plot, I think I’m going t let it go.
Ed Sheeran: A visual journey by Ed Sheeran (duh) and Philip Butah
In this book there are his early childhood experiences and various musical influences, with illustrations and pictures.
I mean I still like Ed Sheeran, he is great, his music amazing, but I think I’m going to let this book go.
How did I go?
6 KEEP ITs
4 LET IT GOs
Well these aren’t the best results, but I’m pretty proud of the 4 let gos 😂
How many books do you have on your TBR? Have you ever tried to delete some of them?
Thank you for reading,
One thought on “Down The TBR Hole #2”

If you don’t like horror then you definitely would not like 127 Hours on the Moon. It’s the scariest YA book that I’ve read, but I loved it so much!! I can understand it not being your thing though.
