Down the TBR hole #3

I found this on The Sassy Book Geek‘s blog  a few weeks ago and definitely needed to do this because my tbr is OUT OF CONTROL

This was created by Lost in A Story!


  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?


Currently my TBR shot up to 1,242. How? Well I found some 2018 new release list… oops.

1. Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them

Date added: 3/22/16

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

So I actually have this. (Shout out to my little brother for buying me all the Harry Potter books that I didn’t have after someone threw away all my originals away just because I wanted them. YOU THE REAL MVP!) Anyways, I started reading the Cursed Child last night and plan on reading this and the next two books on the list. Actually, they will all count as 1 for the purpose of the description is the same as well as the add date.

2. Quidditch Through the Ages

Quidditch Through the Ages

3. The Tales of Beedle the Bard

The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Verdict: Keep of course!

4. Grim

Date Added: 3/23/16


I honestly don’t remember adding this, but after seeing all the author’s that wrote this, I HAVE TO READ IT!

Verdict: Keep

5. Spelled

Date Added: 3/23/16

Spelled (The Storymakers, #1)

Ehh. After reading the description, it doesn’t seem like a must-read. It may be because I just read a Wizard of Oz re-telling or idk. But I’m no feeling it.

Verdict: Go

6. Becoming Naomi Leon

Date added: 3/23/16

Becoming Naomi León

I have been wanting to get my hands on this book. I love the author’s writing and I definitely want this in my classroom. It just sounds like a great story.

Verdict: Keep

7. The 5th Wave

Date Added: 3/23/16

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)

This is another case of I watched the movie and it’s hard to read a book after I watched the movie. With that being said, I do have the book and want to know what happens next so …

Verdict: Keep

8. Front Lines

Date Added: 3/23/16

Front Lines (Front Lines, #1)

This story has seemed totally bad a** since I have heard about it. Women in the war kicking butt is something I definitely am interesting in reading.

Verdict: Keep

9. The Outliers

Date Added: 3/23/16

The Outliers (The Outliers, #1)

I feel like I should start skipping over the books I own (or maybe actually read them) but I do want to read this. I think the reason I haven’t is because while I’m in school, it is easier to read e-books.

Verdict: Keep

10. The Catcher in the Rye

Date Added: 3/23/16

The Catcher in the Rye

I think my reasoning in adding it is because I know it is a classic and I should read classics, but they make me feel lazy like a school assignment. I don’t really have any desire to read this. I feel like that is bad.

Verdict: Go


My TBR is now down to 1,240. Sad. I know. Also, I concluding that I have a hard time at letting go and I’m hoarding books on my TBR. Is there therapy groups for this?


Anyways, Let me know if you have read any of these or if I should change my verdict on any.
