Down the TBR Hole #35!

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 214 to go through and this number is always being added to, so hopefully this will help a lot. Here are my next ten books!

So again, I got rid of zero books on my TBR. My TBR is now resting the same at 214 books. But I’ve also had a quick look through the rest of my TBR and realised that all of the books are ones that I want to read, so I’ve finally reached the end of this series! Kind of sad, but it’s definitely been a long time coming and I’m so glad of the purge of my TBR. The very first post I started with 336 books and now I’m finishing at 214! That’s what I call progress 😉
