Down The TBR Hole | Round 5

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by Lost In A Story in which you attempt to reduce your Goodreads TBR. It 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.

Ever since that Mary-Kate and Ashley movie where they were in the witness protection programme (which I was obsessed with back in the day), I've had a strange desire to find a movie/book following similar lines. This book follows a teenage girl who is on her seventh witness protection identity and she is desperate to find out what happened to her father to put them in that position. This sounds like my kind of book!

I recently read Ava Dellaira's newest release and really enjoyed it so had intended to pick this one up. It's about a girl who starts writing letters to dead famous people to help her come to terms with her sisters death. It sounded intriguing, but having read some reviews I'm not so sure. A lot of people have compared it to The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, which I didn't really love.

I didn't have a particularly positive experience of starting university so I often like to vicariously relive my uni days through books. This follows two college roommates and I'm assuming just the drama that surrounds moving away for the first time and dealing with the change. This is definitely the kind of book I think I would enjoy.

A wrong number leads to two teens forming some kind of connection through phone calls. This would definitely have interested me a few years ago and I would probably have devoured it and ended up loving it. Now though, it just seems a little bit too young for me. I don't see myself ever picking it up.

This is one I remembered nothing about when I saw it on my Goodreads shelf and was sure that meant I would be getting rid of it. Then I read the synopsis and was instantly intrigued again. I'm a sucker for a good mystery and this seems like just that, with so many different elements to it.

Judgement: Stay

I seem to be slowing down a little bit in terms of actually getting rid of books from my Goodreads shelf. I was doing pretty well before. being very strict about what books I was keeping. Perhaps these books just happened to be a pretty good bunch, meaning I saved 3 and only got rid of 2. There are still plenty more books to go though, hopefully I can get that TBR number down soon.
