Down the TBR Hole #2

For the second time, I decided that I’d venture into my Goodreads TBR to see what wonders lay there waiting for me to sort through. Created by Lia over at Lost in a Story, here’s what needs to be done…

The Rules

  • Go to your to-read shelf on Goodreads
  • 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?

The Books

Marianne Dreams by Catherine Storr


I remember adding this book several years ago when in a moment I had a recollection of reading a book about a girl was transported into her own illustrations during her dreams. It was at some point in middle school that I read this, and I spent so long trying to find the title of it because I knew how much I’d enjoyed it when I was just beginning to fall in love with reading. I doubt that I will be re-reading this book any time soon, but you can bet that because of how long it took me to find, it will be staying on my TBR.

Verdict: Keep

Alone on a Wide Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo

Alone-on-a-Wide-Wide-Sea (1)

This is another one that I read during middle school and absolutely adored (clearly Bex of the past was having a very nostalgic day when she added all of these). From what I remember of this book, there were lots of maps, lots of sailing and lots of powerful messages. I’d definitely like to pick this up again.

Verdict: Keep

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman


How. Many. Times. Have. I. Said. I. Need. To. Read. This. Book.? On pretty much every post I’ve ever made about the books I need to get to, this book has featured. I love the premise of it and I adore the cover – 2018 is the year that I will finally read it!

Verdict: Keep

The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2) by Rick Yancey


I’m not too sure why this book is on here. I did not enjoy The Fifth Wave whatsoever, but I think some part of me thought that if I continued giving the series a shot it might get better. Three and a half years after adding the sequel, and I still have absolutely no desire or intention of reading it.

Verdict: Go

John Winchester’s Journal by Alex Irvine


It seems like I was destined to never have a Supernatural-free blog. A few years ago, I was absolutely obsessed with the show after having watched all eight-or-so seasons that were out at that point within the space of a few months. Fast-forward to the present, and I still love the show, but I’m just not at the point where almost my whole life revolves around it anymore. Due to that, I don’t think I’ll ever read this entire journal cover to cover, but I’ll probably have a flick through the illustrations every now and then.

Verdict: Go

And slowly, very slowly, the TBR list begins to shrink… I definitely plan on doing these posts every so often, and look forward to seeing a manageable list of books that I want to read eventually emerge (if that’s ever possible!)
