Down the TBR Hole #12

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

And thank the gods for that because I desperately need it! Lol. And thanks to Lost in a Story, as well, for creating this amazing meme!

How it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Dreaming Dangerously (Children of the Psi, #1) The Unquiet 52 Reasons to Hate My Father Storm (Elemental, #1) Cupid's Academy: The Miseducation of Mergatroyd, Love god in Training

Dreaming Dangerously has mind reading and dreams and I would usually like this, but the synopsis is not capturing my attention so it's gone.

The Unquiet is a thriller with ghosts and apparently a haunted school... I'm into that! Keeping!

52 Reasons to Hate My Father is another contemporary book, this one about an heiress forced to work a new low-wage job every single week for a year. As I've mentioned before, I don't read very many contemporaries, but this one sounds fun so I'm gonna keep it for now.

Storm is a hard one... I usually love teens with super powers, especially elemental powers, but this sounds like there's a love triangle and I am not into that. It's gone.

Cupid's Academy I added because mythology, obviously. But now reading the synopsis, I'm not really into it. It's gone.

Demons at Deadnight (Divinicus Nex Chronicles, #1) The Hunt (The Hunt, #1) Toxic Beauty (Horror High, #1) TimeRiders (TimeRiders, #1) Sonora and the Eye of the Titans (Sonora, #1)

Demons at Deadnight I was on the fence about, but it sounds really funny and everybody apparently loves The Hex Boys, so I'm gonna keep this one!

The Hunt has a human masquerading as a vampire then they go hunting humans and.... I'm not interested. It's gone!

Toxic Beauty I added because R.L. Stine is an author in this series later on, but this book, does not sound good. It's gone!

TimeRiders: That’s why the TimeRiders exist: to protect us. To stop time travel from destroying the world... Time travel! Yes please! Keeping!

Sonora and the Eye of the Titans I added because I thought had mythology, but the synopsis isn't doing much for me, so it's gone!

And that's it!

Total books deleted: 6
Total books kept on TBR list: 4

Let me know if you have read any of these books and whether I should've given them a second chance!
