Down the TBR Hole #4

I’m back with another Down the TBR Hole post! I’ve been really enjoying making these!

The meme was originally created by Lia @Lost in a Story. This is how it works:

  • 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?

My TBR counts 123 books at the moment. You can find my previous posts in this series here. Let’s get started!

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows

This book doesn’t excite me at all anymore. Everyone says it’s hilarious, but I’m always cautious about that. Humour is so subjective. The ‘jokes’ on the cover and in the synopsis don’t make me laugh. I’m never going to buy and read this.

VERDICT: GO


Scythe by Neal Shusterman

OOOOOH, this book sounds so interesting! I don’t know when I’ll get to it, but it’s definitely staying!

VERDICT: KEEP


Fall Boys & Dizzy in Paradise by Jandy Nelson

I have no idea when this will be released. It might take years before that happens. Still, I’ll read everything this author publishes as she wrote one of my favs: I’ll Give You The Sun. So I’ll just sit here (im)patiently waiting…

VERDICT: KEEP


City of Saints & Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson

This doesn’t excite me anymore. The synopsis does still sound really good though, so maybe you would like it? I’ve never read a book about a refugee girl from Congo in Kenya. It sounds like a great read, but unfortunately the rest of the plot doesn’t interest me.

VERDICT: GO


To Catch A Killer by Sheryl Scarborough

Even though the synopsis of this one sounds interesting, the reviews I’ve seen have ranged from extremely bad to just okay. That does not make me inclined to pick up this book. My local library doesn’t have this book and buying it is just not worth it.

VERDICT: GO


DTTH 4


Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin

The blurb of this one sounds so cool and interesting! An alternate history where Hitler won, a scheme to kill him, skin shifting and a badass main character? Sign me up!

VERDICT: KEEP


The ABC’s of LGBT+ by Ashley Mardell

This still seems like a great book, but I’m not interested in it anymore. Generally, I can find this information online.

VERDICT: GO


When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

This book got a lot of hype when it came out. That, together with the blurb and the cover made me add it to my TBR. That cover really is stunning! After it came out I heard a lot of people saying it was very cute, yet many said it was disappointing. Since my local library has this, I think I’ll give it a shot and see which camp I fall into!

VERDICT: KEEP


I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

I don’t really know why this is on here. I don’t particularly like the cover, nor the synopsis. Never going to read this one.

VERDICT: GO


The Book Jumper by Mechthild Gläser

I’m torn on this one. The blurb sounds so good, like every bookworm’s dream come through. My library doesn’t have it though and I know I’ll never actually buy it.

VERDICT: GO 


GOT RID OF: 6
KEPT: 4 
CURRENT TBR: 118

Would you have chosen differently?


I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading! See you next time!

Love,
