Hi, all! It’s Sunday and of course on this blog that means it’s time for another Down the TBR Hole post!
Here are the rules:
- 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?

Let’s see what we’ve got this week (21-25 on my TBR on GoodReads):
Expelled – James Patterson and Emily Raymond
I generally try to avoid James Patterson novels. I’m not saying that he’s a bad author, but I don’t personally enjoy his work much. Honestly, I must not have realized that this book had his name attached to it when I added it to my TBR. Now, I’m not going to diss the book just because of one of it’s authors, but I did reread the synopsis and look at the rating and reviews, and I just think that this would probably be a bust for me.
Surprise Me – Sophie Kinsella
I’m thinking that maybe I somehow own this (I pick up a lot of books that look even remotely interesting at a $1 sale because hello they’re one dollar). That’s really the only reason I can think of for why I’d add this to my list. It doesn’t look like my type of story whatsoever. I’ll admit that the ending of the synopsis makes it seem like there may be more to the story than what appears on the surface, but I don’t think I’m willing to push through the rest of the novel to find out.
The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand
This seems to have some mental health representation (at least from what I gathered from the synopsis) and I’m always down to tackle that in a book. It also appears to have a little mystery going on, which could definitely prove to be an interesting mix. I think this one looks like it’s worth giving a shot.
Girl Made of Stars – Ashley Herring Blake
On top of this gorgeous cover that I am absolutely obsessed with and want on my shelves right this second, this looks like such a good story. It’ll probably make me angry more than once (if you read the synopsis I’m sure you can decipher why it might be a bit of an infuriating story at times) but I think it’ll also make me cry. It’s a book that seems to handle some very hard topics, but from reviews and ratings it looks like the author did it all well. So, we’ll see.
Annie on My Mind – Nancy Garden
Do you all know how long I’ve been looking for this book in stores? No, you don’t, but let me tell you: a long time. I’m really intrigued by this and it’s not going anywhere concerning my tbr. End of discussion.
You all probably think that I’m ridiculous since I’ve barely gotten rid of any books on this list… but I honestly feel proud of myself whenever I take even just one off. I know it’s not a lot and I could definitely remove them all, but I don’t want to. Maybe I’ll never read every last one, but I’m determined.
We’ll see how I do next time!
