Down The TBR Hole #16

down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

Hello guys! Happy Saturday!

This time, I have an interesting collection of books, and I am excited to get going.

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:

#16

The Beloveds by Maureen Lindley

I don’t remember adding this on my TBR, but reading the synopsis, I can understand why. It seems intriguing. It seems dark. But I don’t have the time right now to spare on books I didn’t plan on reading this year.

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

The Gamble (Colorado Mountain, #1) by Kristen Ashley

It seems like a Nicholas Sparks sort of book. And on top of that, it’s 660 pages. I think I’ll pass that.

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle

Okay, this book… This book has been on my wish list for over a year. On my ultimate bookish wish list. If I don’t read it this year, I will be so angry at myself.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Death Overdue (The Haunted Library Mysteries, #1) by Allison Brook

Ah, you see, I have read the second book of this series, but didn’t read the first. What do I do? There is no third book in plan, and I already know how it ends. I think this one should go…
Note to self: Check if titles on Netgalley are part of a series before you request them!

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Assassin’s Apprentice(Farseer Trilogy, #1) by Robin Hobb

I am a vivid video games player, and I love the Assassin’s Creed series, so I don’t know how I haven’t read this book already…

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Dearest Clementine (Dearest, #1) by Lex Martin

I would’ve probably loved this at 13, but right now, ahh well not so much.

Verdict:REMOVE ✖

Tatiana and Alexander (The Bronze Horseman, #2) by Paullina Simons

Okay, why on Earth do I put book 2 from a series on my To-Read list, if I haven’t even read the first one? Removing this one, but I will add the first book, as even though a love story, it seems quite intriguing to me.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Accidental Heroes by Danielle Steel

I usually try to avoid reading too many romances, especially Danielle Steel’s, as she can tear me apart and leave me there for a while, but I don’t think I can miss this one, as it seems too good!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Morality for Beautiful Girls(No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency #03) by Alexander McCall Smith

I found out about this series when I was on a vacation in South France, and one family introduced me to them, and borrowed me the first book to read. I loved it so much, and I will always love it. Not only will I keep this book on my list, but all of them too, and I should do a re-read as soon as possible!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

A classic. One part of me says – remove it, you had so many opportunities to read it, and you haven’t bothered. But another part of me is like – it’s a classic for a reason, just pull it together and get this done with.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

    I really should start doing this! I’ve got one heck of a TBR list!

      Go for it! Let me know the link of your post once you do, I would love to see it! ❤️

    The Spellbook of the Lost and Found is a definite keeper. What more can you ask from a cute sapphic romance with unexplainable magic? Also there’s a hilarious line in the book I still think back on.

    • innah96 January 26, 2019 / 6:41 pm

      I can’t wait to read it!

    I just started doing these posts and they are both fun to read and write! It makes me more excited to read the books on my shelf!

    This posts kill my TBR because I always end up adding more books to my list. I just added Spellbook of the Lost and Found to my list.

      Oh, no! Well, I hope you are finding new books to read. You should do this tag as well, to get rid of some haha

    I always thought about reading Tatiana and Alexander. I heard epic things about it.

      Thank you! Me too.

    Adding sequels to my TBR list on Goodreads is something I’ve done a lot as well in the past. Now I’m really frustrated by that haha. Good job on getting rid of so many books!

    • innah96 January 28, 2019 / 12:13 pm

      Thank you Melissa!

    Great choices. Must be hard to remove books from your list.

    • innah96 January 28, 2019 / 12:58 pm

      Thank you, it is so hard, each time.
