As I’m sure many people in the book blogging community are aware, Down the TBR Hole is a meme hosted by Lia over at Lost in a Story – a wonderful blog that I highly recommend you check out if you haven’t already – in which you have to try and sort through all of the books that have piled up on your virtual TBR shelf!

- Order as ascending date added
- Take the first five or ten books
- Read the synopsis of each
- Decide: should I keep it or should it go?
