Culling the TBR Pile 8

A blogger called Lia from Lost in a Story created a kind of meme thingy called Down the TBR Hole that aims to cut your TBR pile of the books you no longer want to read and remind yourself of the ones you do want to read.

The process:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5-10 (or more if youre feeling adventurous) books.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Culling the TBR Pile This Week:

Blood, She Read by Sara Hubbard

I don’t even know why I have this on my list, it really doesn’t sound like anything I’m interested in reading anymore. Culling it.

Return Once More by Trisha Leigh

I can believe at one point I was probably interested in a time-travel sci-fi where your ‘soul mate’ lives in a different time and oh look, this girl just HAPPENS to work for a time travel historical society and just HAPPENS to find her soul mate and just HAPPENS to break all the rules which, obviously, did interest me at one point. But now I’m over it. Sorry, book, you’re culled.

Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L Armentrout

Jennifer L Armentrout is NOT Jennifer Armintrout. But even so, I was definitely interested in reading this at one point. I remember really being into YA psychological thriller murder mysteries. Not so much anymore. And since my local library doesn’t have this, I’m going to cull it.

Sorrow’s Knot by Erin Bow

I think my current interest is necromancers and those who bind the dead, even though I hate reading about zombies, so I’m still interested in reading this one. I’m interested because apparently it’s set among magical North American tribes. This one stays.

Soulbound by Heather Brewer

Still unsure if you want to read a book after checking its blurb and some reviews? Discover it has a cliffhanger ending. Culled.



Removed: 4

Kept: 1

What do you think? Should I have kept any books? Have you read any, and what did you think of them? Let me know in the comments!

    I love Sorrow’s Knot, so I’m glad that one is staying.

    The rest all look like I’d cull them, too! 🙂
