Down the TBR Hole ★ 6


Down the TBR Hole is a bookish meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.
Down the TBR Hole 411
Down The TBR Hole is a meme that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!
It works like this:
• Order on ascending date added.
• Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
• Read the synopses of the books
• Decide: Keep it or should it go?


We're back again with the segment known as Down the TBR Hole! Fasten your seatbelts, keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times, Once Upon a Time,  I Read a Book and its owner is not responsible for any additions to your TBR list and is indemnified in any book buying that occurs as a result. 
The Rule of Luck by Catherine Cerveny
Honestly, The Rule of Luck really does sound interesting, but I can't tell if it's based in space or on Earth or what. The synopsis itself confuses me! I really do hate being confused, so, I'm removing this from my TBR. But, who knows. Maybe one day, I'll stumble across it again and read it. I'm weird that way.
In Sight of Stars by Gae Polisner
I am all for mental health awareness, but I, unfortunately, cannot read books that can tip my balance because my world needs to be maintained for my mental health. I love that mental health is becoming more of a free topic in the book community and I wholeheartedly support this and I will shout about healthy literary representation until I am blue in the face, but I have to protect myself first. In Sight of Stars is being removed from my TBR list.
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
I do want to read Before We Were Yours sometime, but I'm so hesitant about how emotional I'll become while reading it. It's going to be an eventually one day read. I'll keep it on my TBR.
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
I know I've said I'm not much for fairy tale retellings but I love Beauty and the Beast. I'll give it a go. Besides, I love archery. Hunted is staying on my TBR.
A Grave Magic by Bilinda Sheehan
Vampires? Why do I keep adding vampires to my TBR? I haven't changed my opinion of them. So why do I keep doing this to my poor TBR?! Somebody host an intervention for me, please! This is leaving my TBR because it shouldn't be there in the first place. ARGH!

Books I Removed  3
Books I Kept  2


Alright then! That wraps up this visit to the TBR Hole. Tell me, do you think I made any mistakes? Did I add to your TBR? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time, darling readers, have a happily ever after!
