Down the TBR Hole #2

Hello, fellow book lovers!

We are back again for another Down the TBR Hole which was created by Lost in a story and I am so excited to do it!

We have all been there, or are still there, where our tbr is bigger than we had imagined. I’m always adding new books and then reading books that aren’t even on my tbr but are books that I happen to see at the library. It’s a never ending cycle and this was created to help with the chaos!

Here is how it works:

  • Head to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order on ascending date added
  • Take the first 5 or how many you’d like to do
  • Read the Synopsis of each book
  • Decide to keep it or remove it

Hopefully I will be able to get rid of a few so here we go!

The first book is The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan. Even though I added this in early 2018 I don’t remember doing it and since I haven’t even thought about it since then I am not sure what it is still doing on my tbr.

Verdict: Remove

The second book is The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes. I had been interested by the effects of sugar and read a few books about it. I haven’t thought about it lately and so I doubt I would pick this up.

Verdict: Remove

The third book is Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History by Bill Schutt. I really don’t remember adding this or even why I would add it in the first place, haha.

Verdict: Remove

The fourth book is The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative by Florence Williams. Again, not sure why it is on my tbr and although I do love nature this just doesn’t interest me.

Verdict: Remove

The last book is Hit Makers: The Science of Popularity in an Age of Distraction by Derek Thompson. This isn’t a topic I care about and like the last ones. I don’t remember why it was on my tbr.

Verdict: Remove

Well, this time I kept none because they were all non-fiction and on topics I don’t care about so at least I made my tbr a little smaller!
