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

Down the TBR Hole - Explination

Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.

The optimist in me right now is Dory, the realist who is impatient and likes to drop things before finishing them is Marlin.

This is the last post for my To Read Soon Shelf so that’s something…

But I still have 3 more posts for my To Read Eventually shelf!

And then I can do my Down The TBR Hole wrap up! I’ve never been so desperately excited to be able to do a post!

It does not help that as I’m writing this I am fucking tired as shit because I’m currently working more shifts than normal and my brain fog is in high gear the last few days! Thanks chronic illness!

Hopefully dumping a bunch of books will give me the energy I need to get through to the finish line!

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

Okay, so here’s the thing: I watched the film first and boy I had some really mixed feelings as I shared in my post of films I watched while on my first hiatus. The age gap just makes me super uncomfortable.

I added this because…
I follow the author on Twitter and this honestly sounds like it could be a fun time!
Stay or Go? Stay!

9.│The Outsiders│S.E. Hinton│
I added this because…
Story time! So this is a classic. I know. I don’t get along with classics. I watched the film in High School, though I don’t really remember much of it. The reason it’s on my TBR at all is because one night I was talking to my parents’ friend about books and he said he would read one of my faves (I spent ages trying to figure out which one might be the closest to his taste) if I read one of his.
I chose the Six of Crows for him to read (he had it for nearly a year before I demanded it back I AM NOT BITTER!)
He chose The Outsiders. Only he couldn’t fucking remember the name of it and it took me hours to figure out the name of what book he was referring to because I knew exactly which book he was talking about but do you think I could remember the name either???
Stay or Go? Go! He hasn’t read Six of Crows so I feel no duty to read a classic I’m not interested in.

I added this because…
I was super late to the Star Wars train. The day of the Midnight screening for The Force Awakens, my best friend asked me if I want to go. I didn’t know anything at all about it! Neither did she. So we read a summary of each film and off we went. Now I love this film series! 
I added these books because I heard they were the best of the Star Wars books.
Stay or Go? Go! I think this is a series I prefer to just watch the films for.

I thought it was because of Krystin’s review. But that doesn’t make sense because she rated it 3 1/2 stars and I don’t think I would have added it because of that rating. Who knows! I sure don’t!
Stay or Go? Go!

28.│Where Futures End│Parker Peevyhouse│
I added this because…At first I thought Why the fuck did I add a book with an average rating of 3.48??? Because that sure as shit doesn’t sound like me but then I looked further down and I’m pretty sure it was because of Elise’s 5 star review.

Storm - S

I am both tired and disappointed in myself.

I only managed to get rid of 22, while I kept 20 and just moved 13!

I wish I could say I cared that much about my failure, but alas, I’m so exhausted that I do not!

I’m just so glad my To Read Soon Shelf is over and there’s only one more shelf to go through!!! I can see the finish line! I’m almost there!

What books are on your current TBR?
Any books here that I should hurry up and read?
How do you motivate yourself to cross the finish line for things that have lost their appeal?
