Down the TBR Hole #8


I have returned to the world of organising my bookshelves!!! Well, for one week at least!!  With the amount of books that have made their way into my world recently I really should be eager to get on top of the TBR mountain that is now consuming every room in the house as I run out of space - thank the lord for many copies being of the 'e' variety so I can pretend they don't exist!!



Very grateful to Lia @ Lost In A Story for thinking this little exercise up to help us all keep our growing TBR lists in some kind of order and under control!!  Let's see what goodies/awful titles I'd wiped from my memory this time round......

Here is how it all 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?
Click on the title if you'd like to read the blurb for each book via GoodReads...


Still to read the first in this series -  Red Queen - I do enjoy escaping into fantasy series so hopefully I can maybe do the whole series together, although heard a few disappointing reviews about this one... that is slightly offputting! 

Verdict - KEEP!!


Not sure where I heard about this series, but it sounds fabulous!! Magic?! Yes please! I'm sold!!

Verdict - KEEP!!


Another one of those books that I don't remember adding.  I'm a little intrigued as I re-read the blurb but not enough to make me dive straight in.

Verdict - GO!!


I'm fascinated by those who live double lives and this sounds a really interesting spy thriller!

Verdict - KEEP!!


OOh a tree on the cover? Oooh and a fantasy series?! Tell me more!!!

Verdict - KEEP!!


Yep, there's an owl on the cover so that's what grabbed my attention!  It does sound like something very different from my normal reads but I don't think there's enough pull for me to pick this up anytime soon.  Still love the cover though!

Verdict - GO!!


I'm yet to read anything by this author, and I keep hearing of how well she captures the historical elements of a story.  A mix of reviews is making me think I should maybe try something else of hers first?

Verdict - GO!!


Always looking for light, fun reads and I've heard good things about this one.  My brain needs lighter reads on the TBR mountain!!

Verdict - KEEP!!


Drawn in by the gorgeous blooms on the cover, I'm intrigued by this one as it has received some rave reviews but only 21 of them so hopefully I can add to the reviewer list soon!

Verdict - KEEP!!


Is it wrong that the fact that it's recommended for fans of Girl on the Train and Gone Girl has put me right off reading this one??!

Verdict - GO!!




Ooh a whole 4 books off the TBR mountain!! I think that's a record!!  Ooh this means I have gaps on my shelves again! I think I need to rectify this immediately........ uh-oh!!! #fail 

So have I made the right choices of ones to keep or get rid of?! I'm easily swayed so please let me know if I've made the wrong decisions!! I won't swear at you... honest!!

HAPPY READING!!
