Down the TBR Hole

Hello, bookish friends! So, a while ago I was just writing down a few blog post ideas that I wanted to work on, and I realized I wanted to talk about my TBR at that moment, buuut I didn’t know how and then I was faced with this meme, Down the TBR hole, that I thought it would be quite perfect. I found it at Lost In A Story.  ^^ Here’s how it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre 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 should it go?

Now, my to-read shelf is a mess. Back when I created goodreads, I used to add every. single. book. there and I haven’t cleaned that, because I’m lazy AND also because I have a specific tbr shelf. With currently six books on it. Pretty small, huh. Let’s make it smaller 😛


Little Women by Louisa May Alcott 

I’ve had this book on my TBR since my birthday last year (March 2017), and I’ve always been excited to pick it up. That hasn’t happened yet, though, because it’s gigantic! Excuse me, this baby has over 750 pages. It won’t happen anytime soon, I can bet, but it /will/ happen, especially because the edition is gorgeous.

To Keep


The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I’ve had this little one since two Christmas ago ??, I believe, and I got it because I had heard about it and it was really cheap. I think my friends are the kind of girls that have read it and would hype it up for me, if needed, but every time I think about picking it up again (I tried once, read a few pages, gave up) I feel more unmotivated. I don’t think it will happen, to be honest.

Not To Keep


Winter by Marissa Meyer

TO KEEP, TO KEEP, TO KEEP! I’ve loved The Lunar Chronicles series so far, and I’m excited to reach its end and then read the extra books and all that. It took me an awful lot of time to go through the books because it’s a buddy read and those take time, but we’re picking this one up in September and YES!

To Keep


Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop

My fellow Portuguese bloggers / booktubers claim this is a great series and I was very curious about it. And I got an awesome discount for the first two books last year in the book fair. I’m currently reading the first book, Written in Red, but I stopped for a bit and I’ve kinda lost interest. I don’t know if I’m continuing, to be honest. I need more opinions on the matter.

To Keep, But Need Motivation


Koldbrann Rebeldes by Ana Cláudia Dâmaso

This is a book by a Portuguese author that I got last year in a giveaway when I attended this super big book event (you might want to read my post about it here) and it’s sci-fi and it’s kinda apocalyptic and it sounds super cool, but I haven’t picked it up yet because I’ve had more interest in other books and also I don’t have the sequels so I’d have to wait and that sucks.

To Keep, But Not To Read Right Now


Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I’m also currently reading the first one, Six of Crows, and I haven’t made much progress because life business but I’m loving it, so I know I’ll like this one too. No doubts here.

To Keep 

Total of Books Out: 1

Well, it’s not much, but it’s something. Do you recommend me taking another one out?

    I still have to read Crooked Kingdom as well and I wonder if it will ever happen at this point. 😑 Why am I like this???
    I haven’t read The Lunar Chronicles, but everyone has been praising them so highly and they make me curious. But I’m still hesitant as I didn’t like The Renegades because of Meyer’s writing… 😐
    The Great Gatsby is okay, but it’s not my favourite classic out there.
    Hope you end up reading everything that you kept ❤

      saaame, I’m currently reading CK but it’s been a really slow read because college always gets in the way … I haven’t read The Renegades, so I wouldn’t know, sorry /:
      I ended up offering the great gatsby to my girlfriend, since she’ll have to read it for a lit class next semester. xD
