Down the TBR Hole #10

Down the TBR Hole is a weekly meme hosted by Lia @Lost in a Story. Rules are:

  • 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?

The Vagenda: A Zero Tolerance Guide to the Media by Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett, Holly Baxter is definitely staying on my TBR, my friend recommended this one to me and I’m keen to read the authors’ thoughts on media and how woman are portrayed in them. Green Girl by Kate Zambreno is also staying, it’s a portrayed of a young woman navigating between anomie and epiphany, it’s recommended by Roxanne Gay, and as I’ve already mentioned many times on my blog, I listen to all of Gay’s recommendations. Uprising: A New Age is Dawning for Every Mother’s Daughter by Sally Armstrong I’m removing from my TBR, it sounds interesting but I’m not feeling inspired to read it.

Two books by Donna Tartt – The Secret History and The Little Friend I am definitely keeping on my TBR, her book Goldfinch is one of my favourite books ever, so I need to read other books by the author. I even already bought those two books! I Am That Girl: How to Speak Your Truth, Discover Your Purpose, and #bethatgirl by Alexis Jones is a feminist self-help book and I’m no longer particularly interested in such book, so it’s leaving my TBR. Bye.

I only read one work of Virgina Woolf, and I’m interested n reading her novel, so Jacob’s Room is staying on my TBR. I’m removing Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lanejust because I no longer feel like reading this book. The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer is staying, because I once started reading it and I like it, but it wasn’t a good time for me to read it back then, so I need to get back to it one day.

Have you read any of the books from my Down the TBR Hole list? Tell me what you think about my decisions on keeping and removing books.

    I also recently removed Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane from my TBR shelf. I hope you like the two Donna Tartt novels you kept. Hope, I am sure you will. People say that The Little Friend is Donna Tartt’s weakest book, but I disagree. It can be considered her strongest – it is quietly beautiful and reminds of Tom Sawyer.

      I loved The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt so much that it is strange that I didn’t read her other books yet. I might be a little worried that I won’t like them as much.
