Down the TBR Hole #7

Down the TBR Hole

Down The TBR Hole is a meme set up by Lia at LostInAStory & involves deciding whether to keep or remove certain books from your TBR list. The meme works by going to your GoodReads to-read shelf, selecting “ascending” on date added, taking the first 5 (or how many you would like) books, reading their synopsis & then deciding whether to keep them on your TBR or to get rid of them. I’ll be doing this meme using my to-buy list, as my to-read list only includes books that I already own. It’s been ages since I did one of these posts but I definitely need to – at the end of #6 I had 326 books on my to-buy list, I now have 352.


Down the TBR Hole synopsis

I’m keeping Girl in Translation because it’s a book that I still want
to read as much as I did the day I added it to my GoodReads… to be honest,
I can’t believe I still haven’t bought it.

If you know anything about me you know I’ll be keeping this.

I’m removing this book because I don’t like the white male saves WOC trope.

Despite this being a book that “should be read by everyone” I’m removing
it because it isn’t something I’d pick up if it weren’t considered a “classic”.

I’ve read a fiction story about the River Kwai prison camp so I’d
like to read a non-fiction book about it took, so I’m keeping To End All Wars.

How could I possibly get rid of this? Keep.

As a psychology graduate with a Doctor Who tattoo
how could I possibly not keep this beauty?

I’m removing this as the synopsis just doesn’t grab me anymore…
plus, there are other Cindy Pon books I’d rather buy.

Zoe Marriott wrote my favourite ever book so I will buy everything
she ever writes for so long as I live. Keep.

I’m obviously keeping this; I can’t believe I’ve not heard more people talk about it.

🐺

I live for books like this so this is a keeper.

Okay! At the start of this post I had 352 books on my to-buy list – I now have 349; yes I only cleared 3 but there was no way I was going to remove any of the book I decided to keep so it’s okay. I’m going to try my best to do this post at least once a month so I can try & get my to-buy back down to under 200 books.
