Down the TBR Hole #1

This blogging meme was created over at Lia @ Lost in a Story. I’ve been seeing this meme for months, and I’ve been wanting to clear off my Goodreads TBR shelf for ages. After a lot of procrastination, I just decided to bite the bullet and just do it! It sounds really fun and will help me purge my TBR. With the school year getting back into the swing of things, I thought the opportunity was way too good to pass up. My Goodreads “want to read” TBR is 167 books, which is pretty small compared to other bloggers.

How it works:

  • 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?

Instead of just doing only my TBR books, these posts will alternate between my actual TBR shelf and my “maybe” shelf. That shelf really needs cleaning and I’m glad it’s going to be made fun. I have a feeling that by the end of this, both of these are going to be very clean, with books I’m genuinely hoping to get to/interested in. Also, a question for you guys: how often do you think I should post this meme (every week, every two weeks)?

Let’s get into it!

The Books

Untitled (The Wicked Powers #1) – Cassandra Clare

Blank 133x176Look, it’s a Shadowhunter book. There is no way, at this point in my life that this is leaving my TBR shelf.


The Secret Treasons – Cassandra Clare

I know I have that Shadowhunters rule, but apparently, this project isBlank 133x176canceled/on hold for a long time, so I’ll remove it for now and add it back if this is actually happening.

I was going through a sports biography phase, and so this one got added. Any interest I had in this one evaporated.


Bradley Wiggins: My Story – Brad WigginsImage result for bradley wiggins my story book

Same thing with the book above – I don’t have the time nor do I care enough to pick up this book.

This would’ve been my thing a while back, but I don’t really have the time or anything to care about this one – maybe you guys can convince me, but for now, this one has to go.



Removal Percentage: 80%

So these are the first few books on my TBR! The next one in this series will be beginning to clean out my maybe shelf. Any books do you think I should have kept or gotten rid of? What do you think of this meme? What books have you removed or added to your tbr?
