Down the TBR Hole: Trying to Get Rid of Books?!?

Down the TBR Hole Meme

I saw Stephanie @ Teacher of YA doing this, and I absolutely LOVED the idea. My Goodreads TBR has far surpassed 600 books and is rather quickly approaching 700. Yeesh! Although I’m sure I will not be as successful as Stephanie was (she managed to get rid of all of the ones she had picked out), as I’m a sentimental little mushroom (my mom would tell you otherwise- I’m brutal when it comes to cleaning house and deciding what to get rid of) and I just CAN’T SAY GOODBYE TO MY BABIES, OKAY. I NEED THEM ALL. ALL 700. NO, THAT IS NOT GREEDY AT ALL. Ahem. Let’s see, how do we do this?

Down the TBR Hole is a (very) bookish meme, originally created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. She has since combed through all of her TBR (very impressive) and diminished it by quite a bit, but the meme is still open to others! How to participate:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order by Ascending Date Added
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 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 let it go?

The things people search for on the internet!

Hello out there!

I know I’ve been doing a lot of reviews (and very sporadically, I might add), so I thought I’d liven things up a bit…. With some search terms! I’ve seen quite a few people do this (particularly Cait @ Paper Fury comes to mind), and it’s always funny. There are a lot, and some of them are fairly practical, so these are just the best I’ve seen so far!

reading-

Um, yes. We do quite a lot of that here.

thank you for listening-

Awe, I’m glad I turned up in this one! I don’t say it enough, but I always try to thank you guys for everything. You’re all so amazing. The book blogosphere wouldn’t be the same without you!

marcel-

I think there was ONE gif on this. ONE.

ya books guaranteed to bring you joy-

None of those here. No, we tend to lean towards the ones with lots of death. And pain. And sobbing. It’s glorious. Continue reading

After the End: NOT a post apocalyptic wasteland???

Hallo guys!!! I’m sure you all thought I abandoned you. Evidently, not the case!

Whew! The COYER challenge ended March 3rd, and while I won’t go into much detail now (I plan on writing a post about it soon), it was fantastic, but it threw me into a huge reading… slump-ish thing at the end there. And by association, blogging slump! 😦 So when midnight hit on the start of March 4th, I was prepared with book in hand! Aaaaaand I’ve read three books since then. Fabulous, am I right? So to “ease” myself back into this whole blogging thing (who am I kidding, I’m jumping in feet first!), I thought I’d start with a review of the book that I’ve most recently (read: just) finished: After the End by Amy Plum!

When I thought she was a total nut, it was easy- I didn’t believe a word she said. But now that what she’s saying is starting to make sense, I have no clue what to believe.
