Down The TBR Hole | Sorting Through Goodreads TBR Shelf

Tavleen, my loveeeee just participated in this awesome-sauce book tag. And It’s a good one. Though my Goodreads TBR had only 116 books, I really need to sort through it, so that I can add more books and feel totally normal about it.

This was created by Lost in a Story!

Untitled - Copy - Copy

  • 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?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Let’s get started 🙂


1984 by George Orwell



No one in their right mind would delete this.

Verdict: Keep

The Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin (#6)


I can imagine the ambitious version of me adding this. But I haven’t yet finished the first book in the series.


Verdict: Keep (A girl can dream 😛 )

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins


Bookstagram made me add this. I am not entirely sure about this because I am done reading chick-lit and teenage romance.


Verdict: Delete

The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddharth Mukherjee


Well, I am a biotechnologist, which means I am gonna keep this book on this shelf till I drag my ass into reading it


Verdict: Keep

Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri


I have a physical copy of this book on my bookshelf for about a year now. Imma gonna read it. Someday. Soon.


Verdict: Keep

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn


As a kid, I really liked Gone Girl. I mean psychopath killer wife. So, I bought this dark, twisted book and I haven’t read it yet. So much for love.


Verdict: Keep

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover


Never read a Hoover book. Heard words like ‘romantic’ and ‘touching’. This one doesn’t look like my type anymore.


Verdict: Delete

The Obsession by Nora Robers


Nahh. I am gonna read all the books she has ever written. Fangirling here.


Verdict: Keep

End of Watch by Stephen King

25526965It’s the 3rd book in a trilogy, which means I’ll have to read the first 2 books. This can wait. It’s a Goodreads Choice 2016 winner. So maybe I’ll keep it



Verdict: Keep

Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #42)


J.D. Robb is Nora Robert’s pen name and ‘In Death’ series is a mystery series. I haven’t read a single book in that series (yes, you can shoot me).


Verdict: Keep


Those are the 10 books that I screened for this post. My screening skills are more of an emotional attachment issue. See you in my next

  1. 1984 is awesome. It will make you a bit paranoid about everything, but all in all it’s a brilliant book to read. I somehow felt that this book and The Handmaid’s Tale had similar vibes. Do read both of them and let me know your thoughts 🙂


  2. Yayy. I’m happy you did this. You’re lucky you have so less books in your GD shelf.
    1984- I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
    Winds of Winter- A Girl can dream that by the time she reads all the books, this will be published.
    Anna and The French Kiss- cute but over hyped. You can pass on this.
    Gilliam Flynn is on my TBr and I do plan on reading It Ends With Us 😁
    Great post 😘
