Down The TBR Hole #11

Hey! How are ya today? It’s time for my eleventh Down The TBR Hole post! As always, I really enjoyed writing this 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 now sits at 78 books. You can find my previous posts in this series here.

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo

I enjoyed the first book in this series and my library has its sequel. This can stay.

VERDICT: KEEP


Death On The Nile by Agatha Christie

I put this on my TBR after I read And Then There Were None. I looked up which were Christie’s best novels and this came up. Since then however, I’ve read another novel by Agatha Christie and I really didn’t like it. I’m going to keep this for now to give the author another chance.

VERDICT: KEEP (for now)


The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie

Copy + paste the explanation of the previous book on the list. I’m not interested in this one anymore though.

VERDICT: GO


The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the best burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding

This still sounds really interesting and it has tons of positive reviews. However, I just don’t see myself buying or getting to this.

VERDICT: GO


Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

I most definitely want to read this. It sounds so good!

VERDICT: KEEP


DTTH 11


All Out: The No-Longer-Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the Ages edited by Saundra Mitchell

This sounds absolutely fabulous! I have to keep it.

VERDICT: KEEP


Wildcard by Marie Lu

I highly enjoyed the first book in this series and I immediately wanted to pick up the sequel. However, that was a year ago and the sequel has only just come out. I lost interest in it until yesterday. I read the first line and I was hooked right away!

VERDICT: KEEP


Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

This doesn’t excite or interest me. I feel no inclination to pick it up, so it can go.

VERDICT: GO


Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay

This still sounds really interesting to me! Scribd has it, so I have access to it as well.

VERDICT: KEEP


The Order of Nature by Josh Scheinert

I don’t see myself buying this book and that’s my only access to it. That saddens me because the blurb sounds really intriguing.

VERDICT: GO


BOOKS KEPT: 6
BOOKS GONE: 4
CURRENT TBR TOTAL: 74

Would you have chosen differently?


That’s all for today. I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading! See you next time!

Lots of love,
