Down the TBR Hole #3

Down the TBR Hole #3

  • Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story, and is a way to reduce one’s inevitably out of control TBR. You pick an amount of books every week, read over their synopses, and decide if they should remain on your TBR. I’ve been watching Confessions of a YA Reader   do this for a while now and thought it would be fun to give it a try!
  • I’ll try to include pictures where I can. For now, I’ll be attempting 10 books per week! Hopefully this helps make my TBR a little less insane.


The 10 Books (Added May/June 2013):

Bittersweet (Sarah Ockler)

A Separate Peace (John Knowles)

Flat-Out Love (Jessica Park)

Scarlet (A.C. Gaughen)

This Dark Endeavor (Kenneth Oppel)

This week, I kept 4 books and got rid of 6! I’m actually on the fence about a couple I decided to keep. I might go back and remove them later. We’ll see. One thing I’m trying to do is ask myself if truly want to read these books for my own enjoyment, or if I want to read them to make other people happy because they think I should like the books. I struggle with deciding whether or not I should keep classic novels on my TBR, because I very rarely enjoy them. I find them to be more a chore to get through….I’m especially eyeing A Separate Peace with uncertainty… We’ll see…



Happy reading!

  1. A Separate Peace is a great book. I had to read it for school, in high school, quite awhile ago, and not only did I like it, I still remember concrete details from the book. I would definitely recommend retaining it in the TBR, and tackling it as an actual read soon!

    1. Thanks you so much! I love hearing things like this. I think now that I’m (finally) done with school and required reading, I can appreciate classic books a bit more.
