Down the TBR Hole #25!

I saw the most AMAZING post from LOST IN A STORY with the most AMAZING idea to help cut down my ridiculously large TBR! Thank you so much for creating this post!!

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: (straight from original post)

  • 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?

Every week I will be going through 10 books on my Goodreads TBR and purging as many as I feel comfortable with. Most likely these posts will go up on a Sunday. Currently I have 237 to go through and this number is always being added to, so hopefully this will help a lot. Here are my next ten books!

Out Of Heart by Irfan Master

out of heart

This doesn’t sound too appealing to me anymore!


Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown


I can’t see myself ever getting around to this!


Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur


I do want to get around to this!


Persuasion by Jane Austen


Definitely keeping this!


There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon


I’m taking this off for now until I get around to the first one!


The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice & Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

gentlemans guide

Yes!! I’m disappointed at myself that I haven’t read this yet. It sounds like a book I would adore!


The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats & Piracy by Mackenzi Lee

ladys guide

Haven’t read the first one yet so I’m gonna get rid of this (for now)!


Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

turtles all the way

I have absolutely no interest in this book anymore.


The Weight of our Sky by Hanna Alkaf

weight of out sky

This sounds good, but realistically I’m just never going to get around to it. No point in having it occupy my TBR!


All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

all the light

Again, it’s a book I’d probably like to read but I’m never going to get around to! I have to be cruel to be kind.


In total I’ve gotten rid of 7/10 books off my TBR, reducing it to 230 books! This was a great week, so I’m happy with that!

If you liked this post, let me know in the comments, and even better, why not join in? Also, don’t be afraid to give the amazing Lia some love over at her LOST IN A STORY!

Thanks so much for reading! Until next time,

  1. I love Milk and Honey! You definitely made a good choice to keep it. It’s not the kind of thing you read all in one, at least not for me. I found I appreciate it best if I’m feeling down or unconfident etc. That’s when I pick it up and read maybe one or two pages and it instantly inspires me to be more positive and focus on the future ❤

  2. Oh man, let me know if you ever want to read Persuasion together! I’ve been trying to read another Austen novel for AGES but can’t seem to pick up the motivation to do so!
    Also, Milk and Honey is so good! It can be a quick read, but super powerful – I hope you get around to it soon!!

  3. This is such a cool idea, I might have to give it a go! I think the only one off this list I’ve read is Milk and Honey, and I loved it !

  4. Oh wow, you’re so brave! I almost never get rid of books (which is why my flat is so ridiculously full right now!) so I don’t think I could ever be this brutal!! Good on you though for being decisive – although you really should keep “All the light we cannot see” as it’s such a powerful and moving book 🙂
