Down the TBR Hole #2

Hello all! How are you? How was your weekend? Mine was fine. Nothing too exciting happened, sadly.

Happy Monday and happy Teacher Appreciation Week! If you are a teacher, I want to say thank you for the countless hours and money that you spend and the many lives you touch. Without you no other profession would exist. If you’re a student, be sure to thank/be nice to your teacher(s) this week.

Alright. I’m back this fine Monday with another Down The TBR Hole post.

Down the TBR hole is a meme created by Lisa at lost in a story 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.

The rules:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re 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?

Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

I own a copy of this book and I’m planning on reading it during the fall.

Verdict: Keep

Goodreads I Amazon

IT by Stephen King

Image

I own this one as well and I plan to get to it during spooky season too (aka September-October).

Verdict: Keep

Goodreads I Amazon

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind, John E. Woods (Translator)

Image

I very much want to read this but I’m torn. I am not a huge fan of historical fiction or classics.

Verdict: Keep, for now

Goodreads I Amazon

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Image

Again, I’m torn.

Verdict: Keep, for now

Goodreads I Amazon

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Image

Another one that I own
Another classic that I haven’t read.
Why am I like this?

Verdict: Keep

Goodreads I Amazon

Well, alright ya’ll. That’s going to be my five for today? I didn’t actually take anything off my TBR list today. Next time should be better, in terms of my TBR list shrinking, maybe.

Current TBR number: 343
Books taken off the list today: 0/5

Have you read any of these books? What are thoughts about them? Should I just let go of the idea of reading the classics on the list today? Again, why am I like this?
