Down The TBR Hole #10

It’s yet again time for another Down The TBR Hole post! I really enjoy making these. I hope you enjoy reading them 😉 This 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 now sits at 88 books. You can find my previous posts in this series here.

DTTH 10

These are the books I’m discussing this time. I’m keeping four of them. Can you guess which ones?


I Know Why The Caged Birds Sing by Maya Angelou

This is on my to-be-read pile, because I was interested in picking up a novel by Maya Angelou after learning more about here. However, I think this kind of poetry isn’t really my thing.

VERDICT: GO


Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke

This one is more difficult to decide. The synopsis intrigues me a lot. However, I don’t think I’m willing to buy it and it’s not a Scribd nor does my local library have it.

VERDICT: GO (for now)


My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma

This was recommended to me based on my love for When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. I have the same problem as with the previous book though. I’m not willing to buy this. I do really like the cover though.

VERDICT: GO


Girl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse

The blurb of this book still seems interesting to me and I just discovered my library has it in its collection.

VERDICT: KEEP


Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I have thought about picking up this book numerous times, yet I’ve never done so. There’s always something holding me back. I haven’t been enjoying fantasy lately and I think it’s not the right time for me to read this.

VERDICT: GO ( I can always put it back if I change my mind. )

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

This isn’t my kind of book anymore. It’s a me thing.

VERDICT: GO


The Discovery of Heaven by Harry Mulisch

This is one of best friend’s favourite books. It’s staying.

VERDICT: KEEP


Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert

I don’t think I’ll ever actually pick this up…

VERDICT: GO


A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

I read a short story by Irving in August and I really enjoyed it. My best friend gave me that story to read, because she wanted me to get into John Irving’s books and pick up this novel. I’ll do so at some point, but I don’t know when yet.

VERDICT: KEEP


What If it’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

Of course I’m keeping this. Becky Albertalli is one of my favourite authors!

VERDICT: KEEP


KEPT: 4
GONE: 6
CURRENT TBR TOTAL: 78

What do you think? Would you have chosen differently? Did you guess correctly which books I’m keeping? Tell me down below!


That’s all for this post. I hope you enjoyed it! If you’re new here and you like what I do, now would be the perfect time to hit that follow button 😉 Welcome! Thanks for reading! See you next time!

Love,
