Down The TBR Hole #1

I’ve seen this a few places and decided that since my Goodreads TBR is so big that this might help 🙂 I’ll probably try to do this at least once a week or a few times a month. Anyway I hope y’all enjoy reading this as much as I love reading them!

So, currently I have 414 books on my to-red shelf on Goodreads. Let’s see if I can make that smaller!


  • 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?

a mother's reckoning

1. A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy by Sue Klebold. I actually bought this book not that long ago, but I don’t have it with me at the moment. I plan on reading it somewhat soon or at least I hope so. This book is about the Columbine shooting and it’s written by the mother of one of the shooters. I feel like it would be really interesting and just something not a lot of people think about. We think about the families whose kids may have been killed by the shooters, but what about the families who’s kids were shooters?

Verdict: Keep

2. Boy On Ice: the Life and Death of Derek Boogaard by John Branch. If you don’t know much about hockey then you may not know who Derek Boogaard was. Derek Boogaard was a professional hockey player and this is a book about how he got there and why his life was cut short. I’ve read a few non-fiction hockey books and I always love them! I just love this sport so much and I love reading the different stories of players.

Verdict: Keep

3. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman. This book has been on my tbr for over a year now! I never even bought the book. I saw someone talk about this book on their BookTube channel and decided it sounded interesting and that’s why it’s on my to-read list in the first place. This book still seems really interesting, but I’ve begun to lose some interest. If I saw it in the store I would buy other books before this one. I’m not saying I’ll never read it, but I think I’m going to have to take it off my list for now.

Verdict: Go


4. Divergent by Veronica Roth. I’ve had this book even before I got into reading again and I still haven’t read it. Also, this is gonna count for the whole series because I figured it would be boring to have the rest of the series on this list instead of just including it all together…..I hope that made sense. Anyway, this book will remain on my shelf, but I’m gonna go ahead and take it off my to-read shelf. However, if I read it then I read it, no big deal. I just don’t see myself making this book a priority and I don’t plan on picking it up anytime soon, so off it goes (along with the rest of the books in the series)!

Verdict: Go


5. Cujo by Stephen King. This book has been on my shelf for ages! The copy I have also has this exact cover :p . Anyway, I’m gonna have to keep this one on my shelf because I’ve honestly been wanting to read more horror and obviously he’s the “King” of horror (haha I’m so funny and definitely the first one to do that! *sarcasm*). I don’t know if it’s seeing the Bookstagram accounts that read mostly King’s novels or if it’s the fact It is coming out that makes me want to read more of his novels, but looks like this one’s staying.

Verdict: Keep

Since this is my first time I decided I should keep it short and see how it goes! Anyway, I hope y’all enjoyed reading this! Looks like I was able to shorten my to-read shelf to 409 thanks to taking off the Divergent novels haha. Comment down below the link to your blog if you’ve done this before! I love reading these so please share if you have! 😀 Thank’s for reading y’all!

If you would like to purchase a copy of any of these books just click on their pictures! 🙂

  1. Oof I can only do something like this once a year! Props to you! I did make a list this week of 5 things I absolutely need to read by the end of the year (mostly because they’re ARCs that I’ve promised to review or because I borrowed them from a friend who needs the book back soon), but I’m hoping I agree to less ARCs in the next 12 months to not make this happen again haha.
