Book List | Down the TBR Hole #9

Hello, fellow readers! I am currently working on some exciting posts coming in December and January, so I thought now would be a perfect time to catch up on my Down the TBR Hole series! Today I am evaluating 10 books on my Goodreads TBR.


So basically the idea is to clean up your Goodreads TBR because we are all guilty of adding books to Goodreads and before you know it, there are 200 books on your list and you don’t even remember what a third of them are about!

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-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?

Review | The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

I finished the book within 24 hours because I had to know what was going to happen!

Discussion | November Goals

Hello, fellow readers! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it is also the busiest time of the year! We all get so busy, too busy in fact, from November 1 to January 2 every year. While I do enjoy the holiday season, I also somewhat dread the never-ending list of social obligations that comes with it.

I am very much the type of person who wants their time to be “their time.” When I am not working, I want to be free to do exactly what I want. I don’t think anyone disagrees with that, but my point is, I do not have the type of personality that enjoys constant social obligations.

With that said, I know I have to set goals for myself the next two months, or else I will start to feel like my life is spinning out of control! Today I am sharing some of my personal goals for November.
