Down The TBR Hole #1

Top Ten Tuesday(92)

I’ve actually seen this going around for quite a while and decided to finally give it a try since my TBR could really use some cleaning up! I recently saw Destiny @ Howling Libraries do this as well so I’m going off of her post for the rules and such! Be sure to head over and check out her post and blog too guys she’s an amazing blogger!

I’m planning on doing one of these every week until I’m through my TBR so be on the look out for more posts! Hopefully I’ll be getting rid of some more here in the other posts.

This was “created” by Lost in a Story!

The Rules:

  • 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?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Current TBR Count (794)

Book #1

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

I’ve had this book on my TBR for a while and I’m a big lover of fantasy, the only problem is it takes me a while to finish long high fantasy books which is why this one is still on my TBR. However, I am hoping to eventually get to it because I lot of people like this one!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #2

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

This one is a little more debatable since I love Neil Gaiman’s books but I’m not 100% sure I’ll love this one. Either way I’m willing to find out eventually because Neil Gaiman is magic!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #3

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

This one is probably one that I’d get rid of since it’s really slow but I do own a copy so I kind of want to read it eventually.

The Judgement: Keep (Meh)

Book #4

The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

So I really, really loved Abercrombie’s other book “Half a King” and so of course I wanted to check out his other books and out of those other books this one sounds the most interesting.

The Judgement: Keep

Book #5

The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

Another book I purchased a while ago, it’s about assassins and that’s kind of all I need to know! I read a sample before I bought it and it was pretty good!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #6

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

Image result for dead until dark

Let’s be honest the only reason I ever added this one is because I freaking loved the HBO show True Blood and I wanted to read the books once I found out it was based on books! I probably would get rid of this one but I already bought a copy and I do hope to eventually read it.

The Judgement: Keep

Book #7

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin

So this one sounded interesting when I added it and it still kind of does but it’s nothing screaming my name and the reviews are all kind of meh. So this one can go!

The Judgement: Go

Book #8

Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

Bought a copy a while ago (see a trend here?) and while I’d normally get rid of it I do own it so I’d like to at least try reading it.

The Judgement: Keep

Book #9

The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

Keeping! Definitely keeping!  Sounds amazing and there’s plenty of great reviews for it as well!

The Judgement: Keep

Book #10

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Date Added: June 18th, 2015

I know what you may be thinking! I haven’t read “The Great Gatsby” yet?! Nope, we (for some dumb reason) never read it for class when I was in high school which was unfortunate since it was a classic I WANTED to read. So here I am with a copy that I hope to eventually read so I may seem more worldly.

So I know what you all may be thinking! I only got rid of ONE? ONE out of the ten books I featured? I know but I PROMISE you in future installments of this I will be getting rid of more than just one! It’s just that a lot of these are books I already own and therefore would like to read so I won’t have wasted my money on them!

Feel free to go ahead and do a “Down the TBR Hole” yourself as well!
