Here’s another go at Down the TBR Hole. Make sure to let me know what you think.
- 1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
- 2. Order on ascending date added.
- 3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
- 4. Read the synopsis of the books.
- 5. Time to Decide: keep it or should it go
New Math is Murder by Jo-Ann Lamon Reccoppa
I haven’t read any adult fiction in quite a while. I do like a good mystery novel every now and then.
Not From Around Here by Larry Hochwald
You shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but you have to admit that this one is awful. I don’t really read fantasy anymore.
Verdict: Let it go
I Liked You When I Thought I was Dead by Casey Renee Kiser
I love poetry and this title draws me in. I wonder if the cat is also going to be relevant to the story.
On the Fence by Kasie West
Like I said last week, I’m just not into romance anymore. I need a full plot with nuance.
Verdict: Leave it behind
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
This sounds like the plot of a Netflix summer rom-com starring Noah Centineo. To be completely honest, I’d probably watch it. I just don’t want to read it.
Verdict: Leave it
This week I let go of three books and kept two on my TBR. I’m definitely making progress.

I liked “Not From Around Here” a lot, though I agree that you would not read it if you are no longer interested in fantasy. i found this blog while searching to see if the author had written any other books. It’s interesting that you think the cover is awful. I have the paperback and I think it’s very evocative and fit the material much better than some of the generic covers of many other books. But then, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think this blog is a good idea, but your actual choices to read are the opposite of what i would choose. Good luck, though! Anything to encourage reading! I did find the author’s website in my search, and I forwarded him a link to here so maybe he will weigh in on his cover choice, since it’s an actual photograph with a photographer credit in the front cover.

It’s all a matter of perspective. I personally enjoy book covers that are colorful and artistic, especially those that use graphic design. I don’t like generic covers though, I just prefer more color. I actually dabble in photography, too. If you want to check out some of my own photos of book covers that I personally love, you can check out my bookstagram on the sidebar.
Thank you for checking out my blog 🙂 Most of what I read now is YA contemporary so I understand if it’s not something you’re into. At the end of the day, we like what we like.
