Down the TBR Hole // To Read Soon – Part 3/4

Down the TBR Hole - Explination

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!

I’m having to make a lot of them lately and let me just say, it is not easy for someone who gets overwhelmed by doing food shopping!

greys anatoy christina sedate me

Literally this was my mood earlier this month.

This week we’re back at it again the Down the TBR Hole Post and I won’t lie to you…

I am over writing these fucking intros!

Do I give a full summary of everything I’m doing so far?

Do I just jump straight in?

Do I make a funny joke about drowning under my TBR…AGAIN???

I hope, at least that y’all are enjoying these because I’m starting to not like them so much but I am so close to finishing! Also it’s for sure my fault for literally writing only these posts for weeks straight while I was on a break. That’s what you get for doing the same thing over and over again, you fucking idiot. I’m never doing THAT again.

Here’s some more books I’m either keeping on my TBR or dumping…

I can’t wait for this to be over. I’m never leaving going through my TBR for this long again! 

If you would like to buy any of the following books please consider using my Book Depository Affliate link!

I’m getting so much better at being decisive!

This series has been like decisiveness training. Look out food shopping, I’m coming for you next!

July, August & September 2017 were all very busy adding months for me!

So how’d I do?

I kept 19 and got rid of 22 whole books! I moved around 9, some of which are definite TBR’s, while a couple were for undecided.

What books have you been recommended by other readers that you promised to read but never did?
Do you read Christmas themed books in December?
Has anyone else watch Sweet Vicious??? I can’t be the only one!
