Down The TBR Hole #24

down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

Hello guys! Happy Saturday!

I hope you are all having a lovely start of the weekend. I love doing these posts, and this time I am so excited to share a little piece of my world along with the 10 titles of the week. Let’s begin:

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:

Criminal sociology by Enrico Ferri

Since I was a girl, I wanted to study Criminology. It is a subject I always found fascinating – the way of how a killer’s brain works, the psychology the police force uses while interrogating, all of those little bits. This was one book I picked up for free as soon as I got my first Kindle. I need to read it soon!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Korean Word For Butterfly by Jamie Zerndt

I love the cover, but I am not sure that I will enjoy this book. At all actually. I have to say bye bye to it. 

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Awakening (Children of the After, #1) by Jeremy Laszlo

A dystopian post-apocalyptic book with tons of bad reviews on Goodreads. Are you guys thinking what I am thinking? It goes…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

This book was extremely hyped, and I kept wanting to read it, but never did. Has any of you read it? Help me make a decision. I will leave it as MAYBE now, and I’ll come back to edit it in a week’s time, after I read all your comments 🙂

Verdict: MAYBE

Prophecies of Nostradamus by Nostradamus

The Prophecies of Nostradamus and Baba Vanga (who, by the way, was born in Strumica, Macedonia) have always intrigued me. I even started reading fiction based on these people’s histories. This must stay. 

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

The Odyssey by Homer

A classic that I never read, but should in my life.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Greh njene majke (Her Mother’s Sin) by Milica Mir-Jam Jakovljevic

Samac u braku (A Bachelor in his Marriage) by Milica Mir-Jam Jakovljevic

These two books are written by one Serbian author, Mir-Jam. I love her writing, and I still remember when I was a teen and my mother gave me one of her books (Ranjeni Orao) – The Wounded Eagle, and I fell in love with her writing of old-time Balkans and the powerful love stories in her books. 

I will only keep the second one, and remove the other. The only reason is – once I read one, I will add the other one, without clattering my TBR now.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ & REMOVE ✖

Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

I don’t think I can resist this synopsis and this gorgeous cover. Sorry. I’m hugging this book with all my strength.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Feather Thief: Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century by Kirk Wallace Johnson

It seems exciting, but I will pass.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantWe only kept 5 books and removed 4 this time. One is a maybe, and I need your help to decide on it. My TBR is shrinking, and I love it!

Which books would you keep or remove? Please let me know in the comments – I love reading your comments and thoughts!

  1. I’m glad you’ve kept the Odyssey on your TBR; it is a wonderful book and one I think more people should have the pleasure of reading!

  2. I’ve read The Girl on the Train. I quite enjoyed it, I read it really quickly but I wouldn’t say it was a stand out book for me.

  3. I also really enjoyed The Girl on the The Train. It’s been copied and retold so many times, it’s easy to overlook it as one of the pack. But it held my attention, and I thought Rachel was a much deeper and more compelling heroine than many in the genre. As for the others on your list, good work! 🙂

  4. I remember readign Prophecies of Nostradamus years ago and trying to correlate stuff to real life. I am glad you chose to keep that one.

  5. Definitely a bookworm you are. That is quite a list. Thanks you for sharing. I might look into one of these soon.

  6. I’ve recently got an audible subscription to listen to books and am trying to listen to ones that I wouldn’t normally pick. I’d usually go for a chick lit so there are lots of new ideas here for me to have a look at.

  7. Definitely keep Girl on the Train! Maybe a bit overhyped, but still a brilliant book with a few good twists. Then She Was Gone was great too.

  8. Such a mixed bag of books here, I love it. I’ve read The Girl on the Train a few years ago and it is really good, sort of can’t put it down type book. Good luck getting through your list xx
