Happy Monday, friends! I just wanted to give a quick update on my Down the TBR Hole progress. When I started this series I had 492 books on my Goodreads TBR shelf, I have now brought that that down to 487. Slowly, but surely I’m moving in the right direction!
This is also my 100th post on my blog!! I’m so excited that I’ve reached this milestone! Thank you for reading my ramblings of my reviews, on life and more. I’m excited to write a 100 more!
Down The TBR Hole was originally created by Lost In A Story and the lovely logo!
Anyway, 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
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
Let’s Just Jump Right into it!
1. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray Goodreads
The main reason why I added this book was because I was just getting into BookTube and so many people loved this series, or at least the first book. Since then I’ve heard mixed reviews, but after reading the synopsis I just don’t have any interest anymore.
2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott Goodreads
I don’t remember adding this at all, but I think I wanted to pick this up because I wanted to read through the classics. I haven’t read the synopsis until now, and I don’t have the need to read Little Women anymore. Let’s not forget that this book is so long!
3. The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins Goodreads
I originally added The Girl on the Train because there was so much hype when the movie came out. Since then, I have discovered that this book isn’t for me. The book description hasn’t ever intrigued me, I was just following the hype. I know better now than to just follow the hype!
4. The Shining by Stephen King Goodreads
I don’t think Stephen King is the author for me overall, but The Shining has always been a book I’ve wanted to pick up. I really loved the movie and would really like to experience the book to compare the differences.
5. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Goodreads
Well, I think if you follow my current reads you’ll know what I’ll say about Romeo and Juliet. Since January I’ve been reading through all the Shakespeare plays I own. So far I’ve read Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I’ve really enjoyed both and I’m getting better at understand the old, poetic English. I actually can’t wait to move to Romeo and Juliet.
As always, thanks for reading!
