It’s been quite awhile since I last did a Down the TBR Hole but with the start of the new year I thought it would be a good idea to do one again. Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story, and I found it over at Howling Libraries. I decided to do it a little different this time because I really need to make some cuts in my TBR. Instead of showing the next 15 books on my TBR, I’m showing the next 20 books I’ll be removing!
Current “to-read” shelf: 1214
Naked in Death – JD Robb
I love the mystery aspect of this book but seeing as it’s also a romantic suspense one, we can be pretty sure this isn’t for me. There’s little chance of me ever picking it up.
The Door Within – Wayne Thomas Batson
While this sounds pretty interesting, it also sounds like some other books I’m way more interested in. If I ever read those books and want something like it, I’m sure I’ll find this one again. But for now, this just isn’t going to happen.
The School for Dangerous Girls – Eliot Schrefer
For this one it’s pretty much the same as the above. There are other books like this I’m more interested in!
Angelfall – Susan Ee
I have started reading this actually, but I didn’t really feel it and put it down pretty quickly. Angels aren’t really my thing either so I’m just going to be done with it.
The Wind-Up Girl – Paolo Bacigalupi
While I do want to read some more science fiction, I don’t think this is really the sort of science fiction I’m interested in. I would love to pick up some more space-based sci-fi.
Article 5 – Kristen Simmons
When I added this book I wanted to read allll the dystopian books. Now? Not so much haha, I’ve moved on to different and better things.
The Rule of Three – Eric Walters
This is another dystopian I added in the same bunch and will be removed for the same reasons.
Atlantia – Ally Condie
I read another book by this author and didn’t really enjoy it. As this is also a dystopian, I’m going to assume this won’t be an enjoyable read for me either.
The Private School Murders – James Patterson
I read the first book in this ‘series’ and while it was okay, I don’t feel the need to continue this series at all.
Invisible Monsters – Chuck Palahniuk
I have NO clue why I added this in the first place haha. Maybe one of my friends rated it high or talked about it but I don’t remember and it doesn’t look like something I would ever pick up.
Fan Art – Sarah Tregay
I don’t read that much contemporary and when I do read it, this doesn’t sound like something I would pick up.
Northanger Abbey – Val McDermid
This is a Jane Austen retelling and not one I’m interested in. I don’t really read classics and I can’t think of any reason to read this retelling of one.
Bound by Night – Larissa Ione
This is a paranormal romance and I don’t really care about those either. There are more interesting vampire novels out there!
The Truth About Alice – Jennifer Mathieu
Like I said, I don’t read a lot of contemporary. I’ll first read the ones I already own and after that I’ll start looking for more.
Dreamwalkers – Corinne Davis
Goodreads says this one is out of print so I guess that’s it!
I Am the Messenger – Markus Zusak
I’ll read The Book Thief first, and if I love that one I can look at more Markus Zusak books. But I don’t want multiple books by authors I haven’t read on my TBR.
The Body Finder – Kimberley Derting
This sounds like the romance is more important than the fantasy part and that’s just not the kind of book I want to read.
BZRK – Michael Grant
I have a couple of Michael Grant books on my TBR and want to narrow those down to the one I really want to read. And this isn’t the first I would pick up.
Slated – Teri Terry
What an unfortunate name! But this is another dystopian and like I said, I’m not that interested in those anymore.
Forbidden – Tabitha Suzuma
I have seen amazing reviews for this one, but I don’t think it’s for me. If I ever change my mind, I’ll know where to find it!
So these are the first 20 books I’m removing! Have you read any of these? Did you like them or do you agree with me removing them? Let me know in the comments!
