Down The TBR Hole #4

WebCan you imagine that it’s already the fourth week? I can’t, it feels like I started a week ago! This is the fourth week of Down The TBR Hole, which a meme hosted by yours truly here on Lost In A Story.

Most of you probably know this feeling, you’re Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

The Books:

25928143Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

This one stays! It’s the companion novel to The Wolves of Mercy falls, and that is one of my favourite series of all time.

The Judgement: KEEP






13260749Bird by Crystal Chan

Really this synopsis doesn’t tell me anything. It’s about a girl whose brother died and some mysterious person she meets. I don’t know what to make of this. The cover is really pretty though!

The Judgement: GO








Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

I don’t have to read the synopsis to know that I will read this book one day! I loved Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, so I will probably pick this book up one day.

The Judgement: KEEP

I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak

I really don’t know about this one. I loved The Book Thief but the synopsis of this book doesn’t really interest me. However, Markus Zusak’s writing is really good so maybe it is worth keeping. It seems like a book that would stay on my TBR forever.

The Judgement: GO





16069030The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

To be honest I have no clue what it is about, but I own the book and plan on reading it, so I’m not going to read the synopsis. I love to be surprised about what will be about 🙂

The Judgement: KEEP


Send me your links if you’ve done this (or link me to your post!). Did you read any of these books, did I make the right decisions?

      1. That would be awesome. I have to finish my current read first though which is Harry Potter! I just started it. Have you read it?

      2. I have just hopped onto this amazing Harry Potter train so I am in the first book about page 110 I do believe and I absolutely love it!

      3. Sadly they don’t have the book at my library 😦
        So it’ll probably take a while for me to read it…


  1. I loved Isla and the Happily Ever After, just about the same as Anna and the French Kiss; Lola, not so much but it was still a decent and fluffy read. I think The Winner’s Curse was one book I decided to get rid of a couple of weeks ago. I’d heard decent things about it but it wasn’t one I’d jump at reading.

    1. Yes I agree, Lola and the Boy Next Door was less good as Anna and the French Kiss.
      I really don’t know what my opinion of The Winner’s Curse is since I haven’t read it yet and have no clue what it is about. The cover is pretty though, I love that the person on the cover is holding the letter in the title 🙂
