Down the TBR Hole #6

I have a brief respite before my final exam of the year, so I decided to do a quick post. This meme was created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.

Books: #51-60

Last week’s final number: 357 | Current number: 358 | This week’s final number: 353 | Total books removed so far: 21 | Total books kept so far: 39 | Books added since I began: 34 | Books read from my TBR: 1


Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Since this is one of the great American classics, I want to give it a try, even though… I don’t see myself doing that in the near future. Still for now I will keep it.

Verdict: Stays

One Good Dog by Susan Wilson

I had completely forgotten what this book is about. But I read the synopsis and it sounds absolutely amazing!

Verdict: Stays

The Last Dog on the Hill: The Extraordinary Life of Lou by Steve Duno

I love dog stories and animal stories in general. They’re so touching and beautiful and I just love them. However, I don’t really see myself reading this anytime soon. There are so many dog books on my TBR and I’m realistically not going to read all of them. Maybe I will come across this book at some point and read it, bot for now it has to go.

Verdict:  Goes

Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog by Susannah Charleson

Another one that I just don’t see myself picking up anytime soon. I feel like this would work so much better as a film or documentary, than a book.

Verdict: Goes

Amazing Gracie: A Dog’s Tale by Dan Dye and Mark Beckloff

Okay, I was on an animal binge when i added all of these. And while these still sound so lovely, I would rather see a film/documentary about this kind of autobiographical stories.

Verdict: Goes

Saving Gracie: How One Dog Escaped the Shadowy World of American Puppy Mills by Carol Bradley

My own dog was born in one such place where they overbreed their dogs and treat them horribly. When we first got him, he was in pretty bad shape. His fur had fallen off in places due to flea infestation, his tail had been horribly chopped off and he was quite emotionally traumatised. In fact, it took him a couple years before he started acting like a happy, healthy dog. So I feel like I want to read this book.

Verdict: Stays

The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Oh man… I don’t even know. Dostoyevsky intimidates the crap out of me. But on the other hand… I really do want to read his work at some point. I’ll keep it for now.

Verdict: Stays

 Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens

I’m a big fan of Dickens, as you may know, so I do plat to read this.

Verdict: Stays

The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas

I have actually never read The Three Musketeers. And this is a sequel to that, so for now I will remove it. If I ever do read The Three Musketeers and find myself craving some more, I will get back to this.

Verdict: Goes

The Inventor’s Son: The Beginning by S.B. James

This is a prequel novella to a steampunk series that I haven’t read. So… until and unless I read the series, I don’t think there is much point in keeping this.

Verdict: Goes
