Down the TBR Hole #3

My Goodreads TBR is RIDICULOUS. It has books I own and do not own, so I will be doing them ALL! This meme was started over on Lostinastory, which you can find here!


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

Current “To-Read” Shelf- 393 Titles. (Yes, I added a lot more since last time. No I am not shameful!

21. Red Rising by Pierce Brown.

red rising

Date Added: January 26th, 2016.

Do I Own It?: Yes.

The Judgement: I actually own the whole series. The reason I haven’t picked this up yet is because it intimidates the hell out of me…. Why? I don’t even know.

The Verdict: KEEP.

22. Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman.

Date Added: January 26th, 2016.

Do I Own It?: Yup.

The Judgement: I used to be absolutely obsessed with the Walking Dead, but I actually stopped watching the past couple seasons. That being said, I still LOVE the graphic novel series. Not sure how this will be, but I am still interested!

The Verdict: KEEP.

23. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard.

Date Added: January 26th, 2016.

Do I Own It?: Yes.

The Judgement: The only reason I bought this book was because I was meeting Susan Dennard, and upon rereading the synopsis I am excited to read it. I have actually never read a zombie NOVEL, so this sounds interesting.

The Verdict: KEEP.

24. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon.

Third week in a row I only removed one, and this time I already read it! Hopefully I will get into my non-physical TBR soon.
