Hi everyone! Today I’m going to start a new recurring thing on my blog called down the TBR hole, which was created by Lia @ Lost in a Story. The “rules” for down the TBR hole are to go to your Goodreads to-read shelf, change the order to ascending date added, pick the first ten books and then decide whether they’re going to stay on your TBR, or go.
The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis – I’ve read most of the Narnia books so far and I quite enjoy them, and I’m definitely planning on reading all of them. Verdict: keep.
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness – I haven’t even read the first book yet, so I’m going to remove this and maybe add it again if I loved the first book. Verdict: remove.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland by Catherynne M. Valente – I tried getting into this multiple times but I just couldn’t do it. Verdict: remove.
The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick – I was super excited about this when it first came out because I loved The Boy Next Door, but then I had to wait over a year for the paperback to come out and I’ve just lost all interest. Verdict: remove.
The Map to Everywhere by Carrie Ryan and John Parke Davis – I’m not entirely sure why this was on my TBR in the first place. Verdict: remove.
Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan – This is one gorgeous book, but I don’t think I’m ever actually going to read it. Maybe read a few stories, but I certainly won’t read the whole thing at once. Verdict: remove.
Voyage to Magical North by Claire Fayers – I love middle grade, but I’m just not that interested in this one. I’m not sure why. Verdict: remove.
Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley – The reason I’m interested in this book is because I’m pretty sure the MC is agoraphobic, like me. But it’s very hard for me to read about that, and I’m almost positive he gets taken advantage of in this book, and it’s just going to hurt too much reading about that. Verdict: remove.
The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan – I’m definitely going to read this, I love this series and I’m honestly not sure why I haven’t picked it up yet. Verdict: keep.
Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall – This is another book with an agoraphobic mc, and I’ve just been way too scared to pick it up. But I’ve heard amazing things, so I want to pick it up someday, when I feel strong enough. Verdict: Keep.
