Down the TBR Hole #2

Hi everyone! Welcome to week two of Down the TBR Hole! First of all, you guys voted by a HUGE majority for Vampire Diaries to remain on my TBR, so there it will stay. I'll be keeping an eye out for the audiobook at my library! This week isn't so much embarrassing as I think some of you might be slightly concerned for me. XD

The Down the TBR Hole meme was started by Lost In a Story and it is the most perfect tool for cleaning off shelves that I've come across. Here's how it works:
  • 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?


I don't remember adding this to my TBR, but I'm not surprised. I've been obsessed with the history of Walt Disney and Walt Disney World for years! This book is all about former rides and attractions that I never got the chance to experience and would love to know more about. VERDICT: KEEP


I added this book when one of my Goodreads groups was reading it together. I never did get around to reading it with the group (I never do), but it stayed on my list. It has a 3.45 rating, which would usually make me get rid of a book pretty quickly. But reading the reviews, it seems that all of my friends liked it, so I think I'll have to search for the audiobook! VERDICT: KEEP


I literally have no idea how this ended up on my TBR, but I do remember putting it there. The synopsis doesn't sound particularly up my alley at all. All of my friends who've read it rated it poorly. It's called lyrical and weird and I think it may just be a bit too much for me. VERDICT: PASS


Oh look, another weird one! I'm not sure what I was into back when I was adding these books, but I've definitely changed as a reader. The synopsis doesn't even say much about the book?? Did I add it just for the weird cover? It has good ratings, but there are less than 400 of them. I don't think this one is for me either. VERDICT: PASS


I think I'm starting to see a trend here... it's weird covers, isn't it? I saw that this was YA dystopia and almost immediately decided to keep it, but I'm just not sure about the synopsis. Basically, a girl in a dystopian future fails a test that says she's potentially violent and gets scent to an island of criminals where people die quickly and try to escape. I am desperately in search of good YA dystopia right now, but I'm not sure about this... Maybe I'll come back to it if I run out of other dystopia to read, but I think it needs to go for now. VERDICT: PASS

Once again, I've purged 3/5 books from my TBR list! At least this one included one YA book, but I wonder if I even realised it was YA when I added it. I'm really not sure what I was going through with the books I obviously added just for their weird covers... I'm probably off to buy a copy of the Disney book now!

Did you go through any weird book phases?
