Down the TBR Rabbit Hole

down the tbr rabbit hole

Alright, we all know the drill. It’s time to get rid of some of the junk on our TBR lists!

The Down the TBR meme was created by Lia (Lost in a Story) and is helping all of us to cut down on out TBR hoarding!

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 or 10 books (or even more if you’re feeling motivated enough). And of course, if you’re doing this weekly you’ll start where you left off the week before.
  • Read the synopses of the books.
  • Decide: keep it or toss it!

Top Ten Tuesday | Books I was Supposed to Read in 2018 but Didn’t

Top Ten Tuesday.png

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

Out of My Comfort Zone | Book Tag

tag

Thank you to Siobhan who so lovingly tagged me in this impossible task. I really thought we were friends too!

One Major Rule

You have to pick ONE GENRE that you frequently read about and then you can’t use ANY books from that genre while answering the questions!

This is going to be difficult. And possibly boring… but here we go. I also have to ditch my YA fantasy because stats don’t lie and I read a LOT of YA fantasy.
