Down the TBR Hole Part 4



From an idea by  Lia @ Lost in a Story and as my tbr over on Goodreads is now toppling over as is definitely in need of some serious de-cluttering!

Anyway, it works like this:

  • 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?


The Books


Days Without Number

Sight Unseen

Name to a Face 

Sea Change

I remember reading a book by Robert Goddard years ago and enjoying it so much that I added more of his books to my tbr shelf. Well I haven’t read any of them and I’m not sure I’m that keen on them now.

Verdict: Remove all four


Vince and Joy by Lisa Jewell




It’s Lisa Jewell, need I say more plus I have this on my bookshelf ready to read sometime.

Verdict:  Keep



Henri and Now Living in the Spirit by Henri Nouwen




I read some books by Henri Nouwen that really spoke to me a few years back, but when I’ve looked at one of them recently I couldn’t understand why I thought that.


Verdict: Remove




Women In The Second World War by Collette Drifte



Another book that I think I’d enjoy more as a documentary.

Verdict: Remove





Friendship Bread by Darien Gee



I still like the look of this book so it’s staying.

Verdict:  Keep





The Jesus I Never Knew by Philip Yancey



I’ve had this on audiobook for years but was put off by the narrator’s voice. I do enjoy Philip Yancey’s books so I want to keep this on my tbr.

Verdict:  Keep




The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom



This was a must read many years ago. I bought a  second-hand copy that I’ve never picked up and has been languishing on my bookshelf somewhere for a long time.

Verdict:  Remove





Books Removed 7 TBR total 942

I did enjoy doing this again and as the pile is so large I will definitely be doing more of these posts.

  1. My goodreads TBR is actually not that big.. but my physical one is slightly large. I love how you are doing this, it is such a good idea! You might even re-discover one you want to read right now!! 😀

  2. I think I would have made the same decisions! It’s a great idea by the way; I probably should try and downsize my own enormous TBR at some point haha. Good luck with yours!
