Hello again. The first Down the TBR Hole post for this year – I am so excited to see what progress I will make in 2019.

Credit for this tag goes to Lost in a Story.

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:

Agent to the Stars by John Scalzy

I haven’t heard about this book, and I don’t know what it’s doing on my TBR honestly.

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

Sandstorm (Sigma Force, #1) by James Rollins

I have heard mixed reviews about this one, and usually it’s either a 1 star or a 5 star. Not sure what to do with it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Strong Poison (Lord Peter Wimsey, #6) by Dorothy L. Sayers

It’s book number 6 in a series, and I haven’t read the previous one. But I have added the first book of the series on my TBR instead.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Walk on Earth a Stranger(The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1) by Rae Carson

I have heard so many great things about this book, but some of my friends really trashed it, so I am not sure what to do. I will keep it for now, and hopefully will come back to it later in the new year.

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

Obsession (Talisman, #1) by Sofia Grey

Interesting plot, but I am not sure if this is the right genre for me at the moment.

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

Love’s Prophecy (Prophecy, #1) by Brenda Dyer

A paranormal vampire fantasy book? GIVE IT TO ME! I haven’t heard about this book or author before, and I am not sure when/how this ended on my TBR, but the synopsis is so intriguing, I want to read this book so bad!

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

I have a thing for lighthouses. It’s true. And I still don’t know how I haven’t picked this book up yet.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

A hard book to read, and I am not sure if I want to dive into it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1) by Susan Dennard

With too many witch books right now, this one seems to have so many bad reviews. I will pass on for now.

Verdict:  ☑ REMOVE ✖

Currawong Creek by Jennifer Scoular

Um, who are you and how did you end up on my TBR?

Verdict: REMOVE ✖


I managed to remove 7 this time. My TBR is looking happier already!

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 have The Light Between Oceans on my TBR list too! I haven’t read it yet, but I did see the movie (which I thought was, at best, ok). I just read the synopsis for Agent to the Stars and it actually sounds quite interesting! I haven’t heard about it either, so I’ll think about possibly reading it.

  2. You are my hero. You are god-like deciding who lives and who dies. Ruthlessly mowing your way through a horde of zombies armed with nothing but your katana and will to live. I want to be like you when I grow up.

    I’ll stop now before I get carried away 🙂

    All seriousness aside, I am impressed how you go about whittling down your TBR. I’ve tried and I can’t seem to pull the trigger. A few times after having read one of your DTTH posts, I’ve followed your instructions and I find that I may be able to get rid of two of the first 50 books. I own a lot of the books (in digital form) and can’t bring myself to remove a book that I own and still have a mild interest in reading.

    I’m sure that I’ve added books in 2015, 2016 and 2017 that I am no longer interested in reading and maybe one day I’ll attempt a modified version of this tag, but until then I’ll live vicariously through you.

    Have An Amazing Day!

    1. Oh my God Victor! Thank you so much. Your comment made my day, week, and well, probably year too!

      It’s hard for me to do this as well – but I add more book than I remove, so I have to be a bit fierce 😀
