Down the TBR Hole: This is working!!! Eek!

Down the TBR Hole

Yikes, I haven’t done a Down the TBR Hole in, what… Almost a month? Yikes! I definitely need to get back into the swing of things. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

It’s awesome how well this meme is working for me! I’ve gotten rid of so many books, and the Spring Cleaning Book Tag that I did a week ago definitely helped as well. 🙂

Okay, to be fair, I keep adding a gazillion-trillion books. But I’ve stayed under 700 and the number is still going down more than up! If you want to check out my last Down the TBR Hole, you can do so here. 🙂

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?

Down the TBR Hole: They just keep coming!

Down the TBR Hole

Can you believe this is the eighth week I’ve done this already??? That’s insane! I mean, it’s… Kind of working… XD You can check out last week’s Down the TBR Hole here!

The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Unhauling More Books!

Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Hey guys! (I know it’s not spring, shhh let’s just pretend shall we) As many of you may know, I (fairly recently) started doing the Down the TBR Hole meme, in which you go through 5-10 books on your TBR and decide whether to keep them or let them go. As I started with about 700 books on my TBR (and continue to add more as I go, argh), I definitely deemed this idea necessary for me. However, with 700 books to get through and only doing ten per week, I’m sure you can do the math- that’s a long time (70 weeks) and it’ll be even longer as I’ve already added extra books and I’m sure that won’t stop. So I figured, why not try to get rid of a few extra?

I also recently started to watch BooksandLala‘s channel on YouTube. I find her super entertaining and her closet unhaul videos are both genius and awesome (each month, she watches her book haul from two years prior, and any books she hasn’t already read or unhauled, she either has to read in the next month or get rid of). Although those would be pretty hard to replicate, I found out that she actually made a spring cleaning book tag/unhaul about a year ago! Not all of the topics will necessarily apply to me, as she was getting rid of physical books (including ones she’s already read), so I may adjust some of them to fit my purposes. Here goes! 🙂

(This ended up being long enough that I decided to split it into two parts, so this is part one of the tag)

1. A Book You Didn’t Like: A Book With a Cover You’re Just Not a Fan Of

(Of which you find the blurb equally disinteresting)

Down the TBR Hole: And another one bites the dust!

Down the TBR Hole

And another one bites and another one bites and another one bites the dust-ah!

Hey y’all! I know I just did one of these a couple of days ago, but my TBR hole is just pitifully deep and I can’t afford to take a week off! As long as you guys enjoy these, I’ll keep doing them. XD Anyhoo, let’s just get right into it, shall we? If you want to check out “last week’s” post, you can click here!

(P.S. Yesterday I put up my post announcing that I’m a blogger host- meaning I’m hosting a prompt one day of the week that you can join in on- in the Biannual Bibliothon and participating in the 24 in 48 readathon! Make sure to check that out here!)

Down the TBR Hole: I can fall and talk at the same time, right?

Down the TBR Hole

Hey guys! Apologies for missing this post on Monday (as is the norm); I had my spinal fusion surgery for my scoliosis on June 21 and I’ve just been recovering since! Last week’s DTTH was on time because I was able to get it scheduled before my surgery. 🙂 Anyway, I wanted to make sure to get this post in for this week, because I’ve been adding books to my TBR even faster than I’ve been taking them off (argh, you beautiful new releases), and I can’t afford to lose a week!

But speaking of my surgery and therefore recovery, I have a ton of time on my hands! This means I’m getting back into reading and I have a ton of things planned on the blog. You’ll definitely be hearing more about my surgery (if you’re wondering about that) in a later post, and as I think my TBR needs extra help, I’m going to try to find some other unhaul-tags to do to get rid of a few in between these posts! Let me know down below if you know of any. 🙂 That said, without further ado, I think we should start unhauling, don’t you?

Down the TBR Hole: How deep does this thing go???

Down the TBR Hole (2)

This hole seems to be rather deep, doesn’t it! Since I was only able to get rid of 3 books in last week’s Down the TBR Hole, I’m hoping for a bit more this week! Let’s just get right into the action, shall we?

Down the TBR Hole: I’m a regular old Alice!

Down the TBR Hole (2)

As in Wonderland? Get it? Eh? Eh? Eh??? No? Okay.*

I. LOVE. THIS. MEME. So I don’t want to miss any weeks of it… Heaven knows it’ll take long enough already! Anyhoo, as I mentioned in last week’s Down the TBR Hole, I was at camp for a few days, then had one day off, and then was off on vacation! I just got back on Saturday evening. My surgery, however, is Wednesday, and as I have no idea when I’ll be feeling up to posting afterwards, I might disappear for a bit. But I will definitely try to get as many of these scheduled as I can! Anyhoo, I’m starting to sound like a broken record. Let’s get into the thing, shall we! 😉
