Hello everyone! This is another bookish feature that I see everywhere, and I’m finally deciding to do it because it looks so fun and helpful!

Down the TBR Hole is a bookish meme created by Lost In a Story that allows us to cleanse our TBR piles from the books we probably won’t get to.

It works like this:

  • 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?

Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick


The Hush, Hush books are the series that got me completely reeled into reading. I remember reading and LOVING these books in middle school, and it’s what got me introduced to the young adult genre. After completing the first 3 books, I never picked up the last book for some reason? And it’s been about 5/6 years…so even though this series holds a special place in my heart…I think it has to go.

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson


I remember this being one of the most talked about books in the booktube community, hence being the reason I bought it. I’m pretty sure I bought this book in August, but had no time to read it during the summer, so I postponed it to next summer and so on and so on. It’s one of those books that I ingrained in my head that I had to read during the summer, so I guess it’s my own fault I still haven’t got to it. (Plus, I don’t feel the same excitement to read it as I had before). REMOVE.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


I honestly feel like I’m the only person in the entire universe who still hasn’t read this book! (Please tell me I’m wrong!) The whole premise of this book is still so interesting to me, and they’re also making a movie for it! So this one is going to have to STAY.

The Last Star by Rick Yancey


What is with me in not finishing series? After kinda sorta finishing the Hush, Hush series, the next big series that truly held a place in my heart was The 5th Wave books by Rick Yancey. I was OBSESSED with these books back in 2013—they were literally all I talked about, and even til this date, I still love the first book. The reason I haven’t picked up the third and final book is because I don’t entirely remember what happened in this series. I remember everything being so fresh in my brain before the movie came out, but they pushed the release date even further for the book, and because of that I forgot about the series. Anyways this one is…STAYING.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


Oh my gosh I’m so ashamed of myself. I can’t believe I still haven’t read this book. To be honest, I completely forgot about it since it’s on like page 4 of my to be read list…but now I’m going to make it a priority read for the new year! STAYING.

Let me know in the comments below if you agree with the choices I made, and what books you’ve recently taken out of your TBRs!

Thanks for reading!
