Down The TBR Hole #5

down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

Hello All!
A new week – a new Down The TBR Hole list.


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.
❤ Read the synopsis of the books.
Decide: keep it or should it go


Here’s the next patch:


Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

A classic love story that I simply cannot miss or get rid of. This should actually be a priority for me for 2019.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Great Gatsby by Scott F. Fitzgerald

I classic again, worth reading. It is also a short read, so I will keep it.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Because by Jack A. Langedijk

I think I won this as a giveaway around 4 years ago. I also think that this book is now back in my home country, Macedonia. I am letting go for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

I honestly have no idea how this was in my TBR, but after reading the synopsis I decided to keep it. It seems like it’s definitely worth reading.

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

Christmas in Venice by Meadow Taylor

If you have read some of my previous Down The TBR Hole Posts, you know how I feel about old Christmas books – I probably might never read them, as new ones come each year. But this one seems like a short and interesting read, and I will keep it.

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher

I am currently involved with a lot of mystery and crime novels, and I am loving them. This one stays!

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

I can’t remove Anna Karenina. But I need to read it and get it off my list for sure.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy

Another classic. How can I remove the classics? This is the reason they are classics – they need to be read, because they mean a lot.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

A Place Called Here by Cecelia Ahern

I love Cecelia Ahern, and have read many books by her. But at the moment I am not reading much romance, and I will put this one on hold.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Never Look Away by Linwood Barclay

Another crime, but I will remove this one. It seems like something I don’t think I will enjoy as much.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖


This time I only removed 3. I know, I didn’t do great. But blame the classics. My TBR doesn’t seem to be getting smaller this week. 

Let me know if you have read any of these, and if you want me to keep or remove any of these books from my list! I look forward to see what you think!

  1. I remember reading Gatsby in high school and not fully catching on – so when I reread it as an adult I smacked myself in the head for being so clueless…

  2. I had mine trimmed down from over 450 to under 100 but it is creeping back up again.

    1. That is amazing success! I am keeping track of the ones I really want to read – and will add them to by 2019 TBR. That should help clearing them out. Maybe after I finish my TBR I will do another one from the beginning again. But that would be years away haha

  3. lovely article! Every time when I come across a Down the TBR hole article I think: I want to do this as well. But I already have a couple of tbr articles and I don’t want to overdo it you know? haha but then again; I don’t talk about my Goodreads tbr in those, only about the physical books on my shelves. So maybe I need to do this one as well, lol.

  4. oh I LOVE the idea of doing something like this, I really need to clean up my TBR list. The classics are definitely something I need to add more of on my list (and um, actually read lol).

  5. Some of my favourites there! Anna Karenina and Pride and Prejudice. Anna Karenina helped me on a lot of commuting. I also need to do this on my TBR Goodreads list as it’s now up to 500 and haven’t looked at it for ages.
