Hi Everyone! Welcome to the 28th edition of my Down The TBR Hole Posts.

Hello, my lovelies! I hope you have a wonderful time during the Easter holidays! This weekend, England is celebrating Easter. I celebrate Easter next week though, but I am loving my chocolate eggs, I have to admit!

I have a couple of books on my TBR list this time around again, let’s have a look through them, and see whether we should keep them, or let them go. Let the Down the TBR Hole game commence.

How it works: 

❤ 1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
❤ 2. Order on ascending date added.
❤ 3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
❤ 4. Read the synopsis of the books.
❤ 5. Time to Decide: keep it or should it go

Here’s the next patch:

Blood Shadow: An Eye of the Storm Companion Novel by Dianna Hardy

I think this is a paranormal romance book. I won it as a giveaway, and I am planning to read it soon. It is the prequel of a series, so it would be a nice start, in case I enjoy it.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins

I know, I know – how on Earth have I not read The Hunger Games yet? Well, I have seen the movie first, and then just sort of forgot about it. I am thinking of reading it, though, as I know books are often way better than movies!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Tin Man by Sarah Winman

This book was recommended to me by a friend, but I am not sure if I like contemporary fiction right now. I will let it go.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami

Again, recommended by a friend. And also, it’s Haruki Murakami that wrote it. But it has quite a few bad reviews, and I think I will read something different, at least for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

When We Collided by Emery Lord

I am not quite sure about this one, guys. I haven’t read Emery Lord before, and I have had some bad experiences recently with books that cover mental health issues. Maybe I should skip it, for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera

I don’t remember this book, and there are so many similar books to this, that I am a bit reluctant to dedicate myself to it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making(Fairyland, #1) by Catherynne M. Valente

I only added this book to my TBR list because of its cover. I mean – look it it. This is the hardest decision I have to make in Down The TBR Hole. It goes…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

This book is written by the author of Harry Potter. And The Tales of Beedle the Bard can be found at the Hogwarts Library. I read ”Quidditch Through the Ages” and loved it so much. I have to read this as well.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Red Russia by Tanya Thomspon

I am not sure about this one, to be honest. I know Russian Culture, and I know American Culture. But this might not be the right book for me, I suppose.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Bully (Fall Away, #1) by Penelope Douglas

A story about bullies and a girl that is bullied, but then decides to stand up to those who bully her in high-school. Even though perhaps not the genre I read now, I want to read it. The sole reason is to promote this message. Women need to be brave and stand up to bullies.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

    The Valente book is on my TBR too and it has been there for ages! But the cover is really pretty and, sooner or later, I would get to it!

    Well done for removing so many. I do love the Fairyland series though, I would recommend it.
