Culling the TBR Pile 15

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:

Moth (The Moth Saga #1)

Moth by Daniel Arenson

I don’t even know why or remember adding this. It doesn’t really sound like my kind of thing. It’s getting culled.


My Fair Godmother (My Fair Godmother, #1)

My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

While I do remember adding this, I have since changed my mind. Although it does sound fun, I don’t have time for everything, and this one is getting culled.


Eva by Peter DIckinson

Since I have actually already read this book and thought it was pretty decent, I just added it to my to-reads pile because I want to RE-read it, I’m culling it.

The Summer Prince

The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson

I added this book purely because it was set in futuristic Brazil, and I do wholeheartedly support #ownvoices books and diversity, but I was never really interested in reading this and it’s time I owned up to that and culled it.


Uninvited by Amanda Marrone

Ugh, I am just so over vampires right now. Culling it.


Removed: 5

Kept: 0

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!
