Good hello, friends! Happy new post day! When you start writing and remember you said you were going to finish three books over weekend, you just can’t help, but laugh because I finished one book. That’s definitely way better than none, and I may be only finish one today too. Oops, I also just realized I forgot to include the picture in last weeks! Fixed now! Down The TBR Hole#20!!
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 Into It!
1. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
Well, just reading the synopsis renewed my interest. I don’t remember how I found out about the book. Probably heard on BookTube, but I definitely was feeling meh before I heard the synopsis and saw it was rated pretty decently at 3.98. Goodreads
2. To the Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey
I don’t remember this book at all. But I do remember that my ex bought it for me and the author’s name sounds familiar. The summary did sound interesting so I think I’ll keep it for now! that rating of 4.15 is pretty good and convincing too! Goodreads
3. Named of the Dragon by Susanna Kearsley
Why do I always have a freak out halfway through these posts when I can’t remember adding the books? No one else would be adding books to my TBR, haha.. Even after the synopsis I’m still a hard MEH on this book. Is this any good? I would like to know! 😀 Goodreads
Judgement: ?? Go?
4. If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino
First off: what type of title is that? As a translated book, does it sound better/have more context than the one in English? After the synopsis: hmm what? I’m still confused. Why was I interested in this? NEXT! Goodreads
5. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
Keep! Keep! Keep! I barely remember anything what’s actually in the book, but I do remember all the praise it was getting at one point. Hmm.. I should add it to my TBR jar.. Speaking of which, I should use my TBR jar more… Goodreads
As always, thanks for reading!
