Down The TBR Hole | Round 2

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by Lost In A Story in which you attempt to reduce your Goodreads TBR. I did this for the first time back in November 2017 and decided it was about time I kept going as my TBR is only continuing to grow.

This basically involves organising your Goodreads 'Want To Read' shelf by date from oldest to newest, looking at the first 5-10 books and decided whether you're still interested or not.

From what I can gather, this is a YA contemporary about a girl with a lot going on a school and at home and then a boy comes along. I know I want to read more Sarah Dessen books, as I mentioned in my last Down The TBR Hole, but from the synopsis this doesn't really interest me. I think I'll get rid of it for now and maybe pick it up if I read and adore some of her other books.

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

This is a tough one! I only added this to my TBR because it was written by Stephenie Meyer and I loved Twilight. However, I'm not really into sci-fi so the story doesn't interest me. The only thing making me consider keeping this is the reviews from people I follow on Goodreads as so many of them have given this book 5 stars! Maybe I'll just watch the film instead.

Judgement: Go

After a good couple of years of this book sitting on my bookshelves, I just unhauled this at the start of the year. However, I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it from my Goodreads TBR at the time. It sounds like Twilight with werewolves, which I know isn't something I'm ever going to read. I want to want to read this book but I just don't.

I bought this book at the same time as Shiver, and then unhauled it at the same time as well. I don't know why I didn't just get rid of this book from my Goodreads at the time since I know I won't read this. I enjoyed the first couple of chapters about 6 years ago but it is no longer something I think I will enjoy.

I'm a sucker for a dystopian! Living life inside a dome, going outside of that dome to search for her mother, meeting a boy out there; this is my kind of book. I don't read many dystopians any more but I am still interested in them and this sounds like something I might enjoy.

Judgement: Stay

I'm getting a bit more ruthless now that I have accepted that I cannot read all the books, as much as I would like to. I'm pretty happy at having another 4 books off my TBR, hopefully I can get it down to a decent number soon.

Did I make any mistakes? Should I change my mind about any of these?
