It’s Thursday – and you know what that means! REVIEW DAY!
People who Read the Title: *cough cough* May this isn’t a review post!
Yeah…well basically, you’re right. BUTTTT…I am going away with my family for a few days and I need to pre-write a bunch of posts because I am not letting anything take away my 5 month schedule streak. PLUS… I might not have read another book yet to review so whoops. Hopefully I will get lots of reading done on this trip so I can get back to regular Thursday Review posts.
Anwaaaaaay, I thought I would try out a bookish meme that I hadn’t done before and I settled on Down the TBR Hole which was originally created by Lia at Lost in a Story but now it is done by basically every book blogger and their second aunties, cousins, dog twice removed. I am very excited to jump into the trend because there is nothing quite as satisfying as organising and decluttering. Let’s get started shall we?
THE RULES FOR DOWN THE TBR HOLE:
- 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?
A YA romance about a girl who get’s nicknamed the Designated Ugly Fate Friend, thinks she likes one guy but turns out she liked this other guy all along!
I like Kody Keplinger and I really liked the movie…but if I’m being brutally honest with myself (which is the point of this bookish meme) I probably will never read this.
A YA Romance about a girl who goes to France and falls in love with a guy who has a girlfriend…maybe?
Summarising these blurbs are so hard haha! This one definitely appeals to me more than the DUFF does.
A YA Romance about Star-Crossed lovers from opposite sides of the tracks.
I get serious Romeo and Juliet vibes – sign me up!
A girl has to compete as a royal assassin and someone falls in love.
This is heard because I have heard such great things and because romance…and it takes a lot for me to resist a romance. But, if I’m being honest with myself I know that I am not really a fan of High Fantasy books like this. They take up waaay too much brain processing power for my comfort zone.
An Adult Romance about a boy next door? Maybe?
This is both the funniest and the most bizarre and unhelpful blurb I have ever read. I am literally going off the name alone now. But, based solely on the blurb I have to keep this. It had me laughing, and if the blurb has me chuckling then I can’t even imagine how amazing the book will be.
So that’s it for my first attempt at this bookish meme. I found it so satisfying and I will definitely do it again! I decided to only do 5 this time round (I hope to do a lot more next time) so that I could just text the waters and also because I’m pre-writing a lot so sorry this is so short! Anyway, I hope you have a great day and I will see y’all tomorrow ❤
