Down the TBR Hole #2 – Decluttering my TBR

This meme was created by Lia @ Lost in a Story. The title basically says it all – you go through your TBR and decide which books you really want to read and keep on your TBR and which books can go!


  • 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?


Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

I am in love with Rainbow Rowell’s writing and this sounds like it could be a cute story! It’s about this guy who monitors people’s work e-mails and he falls in love with one of the employees through reading her e-mails. That’s a very basic summary, I know but you can click on the book cover and read the Goodreads blurb! I have to say the story does sound a tiny bit creepy but my inner voice tells me to read all of Rainbow’s books because she’s awesome so that’s what I’m going to do!

Decision: KEEP


Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan

I can’t possibly sum up the blurb so you’ll have to check it out on Goodreads (just click on the cover) but it is supposed to be a coming of age story about love, sisters and friends and apparently it’s very light and humorous so this could be a great summer-read!

Decision: KEEP




To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

I know what you’re thinking… Jackie, have you REALLY not read this book yet? I know. I’m the worst. Anyway. This is a super cute love story that everyone keeps raving about and I plan on reading it eventually! And apparently it has fake-dating in it WHICH I LOVE!!!!!

Decision: Definite KEEP!


Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

YES I KNOW THIS HAS BEEN ON MY MARCH TBR AND IT IS NOW MAY AND I STILL HAVEN’T READ IT!!!! I KNOW! And I’m ashamed. This is another cute contemporary that is set in PARIS, what more could you want? Another great summer-read!

Decision: KEEP



To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

A favourite and must-read classic that has been read by everyone but me.

Decision: KEEP



Huh. No books removed from my TBR this time. Can’t wait to do this again!


Thanks for reading!


Have you read any of these books? Did you like them? Did you hate them? Are any of them on your TBR as well? What do you think of my decisions? Let’s chat in the comments!

    you’re brave for tryying to lower your tbr shelf xD if i tried i’d probably end up with more than when i started!! To Kill a Mocking Bird isn’t a light read but it’s a good one! Keep meaning to read some Rainbow Powell and Jenny Han!

    Ahh this is such a good idea! I might give it try myself because I definitely need to cut back on my tbr. TKAM is honestly a really good read. My copy of the book is falling apart from how many times I have read it.

    The only book on your list I’ve read is To Kill A Mockingbird and it was for my English Leistungskurs in 12th grade I think! I can’t really tell you if I enjoyed the book or not though because the fact that I had to read it for school definitely dampened my enjoyment of it!

    I can’t believe you kept ALL the books on your TBR! That has honestly never happened to me!

      Ah yeah that happens to me all the time! When I have to read a book for uni it just feels like an obligation rather than simply reading the book for enjoyment!
      I think that I’ve recently cleaned my TBR so most books on there will probably be books that I ACTUALLY still want to read! 😀

    I didn’t notice the dots until you pointed them out! XD AND YAAAS READ TATBILB SOON SO I CAN FANGIRL WITH YOU ABOUT IT *cries* PETEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER. Also Jenny Han really knows how to play with ya because one moment I’m rooting for this guy, and then the other. I need to read Anna and the French Kiss because fluffy contemporaries yes please!!! And I haven’t read To Kill a Mockingbird either! I honestly don’t even know what it’s about whoooooops. But again. Classics.

    DUDE DON’T WORRY. I HAVEN’T READ ANY OF DEM BOOKS YOU MENTIONED HERE… well except To Kill A Mockingbird. AND THAT BOOK IS BRILLIANT. I actually took a lot of notes while reading the book, so it helped me understand the backgrounf and the themes that the book had! I’M SURE YOU’LL LIKE IT, JACKIE! 🙈

    Ohh well you have GREAT books waiting on your TBR, Jackie! I read Attachments a while ago but remember really enjoying it – I hope you will too. The whole Anna and The French Kiss series is just SO CUTE, my favorite book is the one with Isla though, but that one just made me smile so big the whole time I was reading as well. And YES to PS. I Love You, you have to read that one as soon as you can, it is THE CUTEST BOOK ❤
