Down The TBR Hole #5

Hey! I’m back with another Down The TBR Hole post! 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 109 books. You can find my previous posts in this series here. Let’s get started!

Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields

This seems interesting, but it doesn’t excite me anymore. Nobody raves about it either. Since my library doesn’t have this and I’m never going to buy it, it can go!

VERDICT: GO


Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

Backstabbing ballerina’s, drama, POC characters and a cool cover? Count me in!

VERDICT: KEEP


The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

This book is on my 2018 TBR, so it’s definitely staying. At least until the end of this year.

VERDICT: KEEP


The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

The concept of this book is unique and seems interesting, but again it doesn’t excite me. Sorry not sorry.

VERDICT: GO


Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

This still interests me. It has been recommended to me a lot. It’s staying for now.

VERDICT: KEEP


DTTH 5


The Melody of You and Me by M. Hollis

Queer bookworms that fall in love (f/f romance) totally seems like my thing. I heard some bad things about the writing, but I still want to give this a change.

VERDICT: KEEP


IQ 140 by Dirk Bracke

I’m torn over this one. I put it on my TBR because I wanted to read a book about a highly intelligent main character. My friend recommended me this one because the representation was done well. (It’s often very stereotypical.) My library has it. However, I’m kind of over Dirk Bracke.

VERDICT: KEEP (for now)


Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee

I put this on my TBR because Cece from Problem of a Booknerd raves about it so much. It sounds really interesting!

VERDICT: KEEP


Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

I know this is a very popular book. The general consensus is that it’s absolutely amazing and heart-breaking. However, it has been on my TBR for years and I still haven’t picked it up.

VERDICT: GO (oh, unpopular opinion!)


Peter Darling by Austin Chant

I don’t know why this is on here. I’ve always felt ‘meh’ about Peter Pan and I don’t care about a retelling.

VERDICT: GO


BOOKS KEPT: 6
BOOKS GOTTEN RID OF: 4
CURRENT TBR: 104

What do you think? Would you have chosen differently?


I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading! See you later!

Love,
