Down the TBR Hole! #1

Hi guys!

originally I decided I wanted to try 5 posts a week, and then I saw first line Friday’s, and decided on 6… now I’ve finally gotten around to starting this meme. So let’s try 7 posts a week huh?

This is a meme that i’ve seen floating around heaps, where you go to your goodreads page, and go through your TBR list from oldest to newest, and decide what books you still want to keep and what ones need to go. So let’s get started shall we?

I personally will be doing 10 books per post. And if I have a whole series together, or an author I don’t read from anymore, then I will group them together (like I have a lot here)

1. GEMINA

GEMINA! I read illuminae in January of this year, and loved it! I’ve been waiting for Gemina to come down in price and funnily it did about a week ago, so I brought a copy and I’m planning on reading it before the end of the year, soooo its a keep for me

2. THE RAVEN CYCLE

The raven cycle! I actually own two copies of the raven boys, but haven’t read it yet. I read the first paragraph and wasn’t super enthralled so I decided not to pick it up BUT I do want to read it at some point so

3. RICK RIORDAN BOOKS

I feel bad saying this, but personally, I’ve grown out of rick’s books. I absolutely adored them when I first read them, and I would love to read some YA if he writes it but I own about 7 of these books, and haven’t picked them up in over a year so I think it’s time to say goodbye for now.

4. THE LEGEND TRILOGY

I had to re read what this was about BUT the first book is on my list of books for my Diversity bingo TBR so i’m Going to keep these and actually give them  a chance as I’ve seen such lovely things said about Marie Lu’s work

5. CROOKED KINGDOM

I’ll admit it, i’m A procrastinator ! I read Six of Crows a few months back, enjoyed it well enough… and never picked up crooked kingdom. I guess i’m Not Leigh’s biggest fan? I did finish TLOT about a week or so ago, and enjoyed it too so I know I will get to Crooked Kingdom eventually…. I just don’t know when, so

6. THE MAZE RUNNER SERIES

So, I have heard both bad & good things about this series…. and I don’t know what to think personally. I own the first three books and for that reason, I want to say keep, but I don’t see myself picking them up any time soon… I’ll keep the first one for now anyways since I own them

7. THE MURDER COMPLEX SERIES

I have heard very mixed things about this, and if I’m honest… I had to go back and read what it was about to even remember the story. It still sounds interesting though so I’ll keep the first book.

8. THE FIFTH WAVE TRILOGY

Funnily, I was planning on getting rid of this as soon as I saw it was on the list… then I read about it and what people had to say and I kinda wanna keep it…. whoops?

9. THREE DARK CROWNS

This one is easy, I own it, I’ve always been intrigued by it. So I’m keeping it

10. LES NOUVELLES HISTOIRES EXTRODINAIRE 

BD71A8FC-71E4-405A-85A5-73C9B80F38F4

I probably spelt that wrong, but i’m Too lazy to double check. I found this book for $2 so I got it and put it on my TBR to improve my French… but honestly, I’ll never read it

SO, out of 250 books originally, how many are now on my TBR?

233 / 250

So I got rid of 17 books (most were rick rioridan books) I’m actually really happy with that!

Until next Sunday,
Sarah
