Down the TBR Hole #15

It’s time for a new round of Down the TBR Hole! This is where I go through my Goodreads ‘Want to Read’ shelf and do a bit of cleaning up. If you want to see the full description of what this post is all about, check out my first round HERE.

Hello, reader!

Happy Halloween! I’ve spent the day preparing for trick-or-treaters, but now it’s time to sit and do another Down the TBR Hole post. In the last round, I ended up with 651 books on my Goodreads Want to Read shelf. And, as the shock of the century, I’m actually still sitting at the same number! That never happens 😂 Let’s see if I can trim the list a bit more before I start looking ahead to 2022 books.

The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker

Well, I know this one is definitely staying. A book that brings together two mythical creatures from Yiddish and Middle Eastern folklore? I would like to consume that, please! This poor book has been on my TBR so long because I keep forgetting about it’s existence. One of the many benefits of doing these posts, right? I rediscover these incredible sounding books!

Verdict: Keep

The Summer Dragon by Todd Lockwood

Verdict: Keep

11/22/63 by Stephen King

Well, I own this one, so that’s already a point towards keeping it. I’ve also always been intrigued by the premise. Time travel and politics from an author who’s forte is horror? I’m interested! Of course, like quite a few of King’s books, this is a thick one. Probably explains why it’s still on the TBR, if I’m honest. But one day I will get to it!

Verdict: Keep
