Down the TBR Hole #21

It’s only been two weeks since the last time I wrote a Down the TBR Hole post, but I’ve added more books to my Goodreads TBR, so I decided not to wait too long before doing this again.

Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story. It looked like a fun and productive way to finally make a dent in that Goodreads TBR. I went through my want-to-read shelf a little while ago but I think I was still to kind on a lot of books. Let’s see what I’ll make of it this time around. I decided to go with 10 books at a time so lets get started!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 or 15 or 20, if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
  • Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!

Current “to-read” shelf: 497 (my last post ended at 487, I don’t think I’m ever going to get this to stay lower)

The Lovely Reckless – Kami Garcia

I honestly can’t beleive I haven’t read this one yet and it’s already three years old! The Lovely Reckless still sounds like a story I will love. Also, my Goodreads friends that have read this all rated it pretty high.


The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak – Brian Katcher

A story like this sounds like something I will love. Add a cute cover and blurb that has me wanting toick it up right away, means I won’t be removing this from my TBR. How is this book already four years old? The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak also didn’t get that much hype, so hopefully it won’t disappoint!


Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

Before the movie adaption of this book was released, I tried picking this one up. I think I read about 25 %, but it couldn’t keep my attention. Miss Peregrine’s just isn’t the book for me. In all honesty, the movie was also weird and just okay, so I don’t think the book is going to make me happy.


Girl Online: Going Solo – Zoe Sugg

The first two book in this trilogy were really cute and I couldn’t put them down. I loved the concept of the story and enjoyed how it all played out. Looking at all the books I have to read now, I honestly don’t think this is one I wil pick up anytime soon. Part of me wants to finish it, but there are too many books I want to read right now!


When It’s Real – Erin Watt

I actually started reading this book quite awhile ago, haha. So far I really liked what I was reading, but as usual, I got distracted by other books. I definitely see myself going back to this one.


Descent – Stacey Rourke

My aunt actually had the first four books in this story signed for me. I enjoyed these books and am definitely happy to have them in my collection. Descent is a story I didn’t knew existed until awhile after I had finished reading the first four. It looks like Descent is a novella (it’s only 92 pages). I honestly don’t think I’ll end up reading this.


Save the Date – Morgan Matson

Morgan Matson is a fun author and what I’ve read so far have been books I’ve enjoyed. Save the Date sounds like a fun summer read and I will read this one. I have a few books I still need to read by this author, but they all sound like stories I’ll really enjoy!


Wintersong – S. Jae-Jones

I actually own this book already, but it’s another one I just haven’t gotten to yet. A few friends have read Wintersong and really enjoyed the story. The cover is stunning and I’m really curious about this one!


Taunting Destiny – Amelia Hutchins

It’s been a few years since I’ve read the first book in this series. I did enjoy the idea of this story, but it’s definitely a lot more descriptive during steamy moments than most romances I read. Taunting Destiny is definitely a book I’ll have to be in the mood for, so I think for now it can go.


History is All You Left Me – Adam Silvera

I’m actually surprised to find this one on my want to read list, because I read History is All You Left Me two years ago, haha. I made sure to check the other editions and sure enough, I have a different one marked as read. I love Adam SIlvera’s writing, but seeing how I’ve read this one, this edition can be removed from my want to read shelf.



Removal Percentage: 50%
Current “to-read” shelf: 492

I acutally managed to remove half of my list this week. I’m proud of myself, haha. Have you read any of these book? If you think I didn’t make the right decision about one of these books, definitely let me know. I love hearing what others think!

    1. Oh, that was a typo, haha! I only added 10 or 15. Still too many, haha!!

  1. Miss Peregrine is also on my TBR but I’m still not picking it up. I tried Girl Online, but it didn’t work for me. Great job by removing 50%!
