Seeing how I keep adding new books to my Goodreads TBR, I decided to did this just a little more often than I have before. It’s been a month since my last Down the TBR Hole and I’ve added 13 books to my want-to-read shelf. Not bad, but definitely a reason to do a post like 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: 551 (
my last post ended at 538, oops…)
Cracked Kingdom – Erin Watt
In my previous Down the TBR Hole, I removed the fourth book of this series, because I still need to read the third book. So until I continue with the series, I’ll also be removing Cracked Kingdom!
Mister Romance – Leisa Rayven
After loving her Starcrossed trilogy, I just had to add Mister Romance to my TBR after finding out about it. It’s almost three years since it was released and I still haven’t picked it up. For now I think I’ll remove this one. I may come back to it later.
One of Us is Lying – Karen M. McManus
I love when this happens. I’ve already read One of Us is Lying and enjoyed it very much. Even if the ending did disappoint me a bit. This is a different version than I read, so it’s still on my want-to-read shelf, so I can remove it without a though. I wish this was the case more often, haha.
Once Every Never – Lesley Livingston
After loving The Valiant and getting to meet this author, I started looking into other things she’s written. Once Every Never was released in 2011 and sounds really interesting. I actually forgot I added this to my shelf. Right before I started typing this, I tried to see if I could find this book. It’s proving to be difficult, so even though it sounds interesting, I’ll remove it for just not being able to find it.
Romancing the Throne – Nadine Jolie Courtney
Romancing the Throne sounds like a really cute title. That being said, after reading the summary, I’m not sure this one is for me. I have a feeling this on will have a love triangle and that is something I do not like to read about. So even though this is probably a book I’d otherwise like I’m going to remove it.
A Girl Like Me – Ginger Scott
How have I not read this book yet?!? I remember the first book ended with a major cliffhanger. This definitely makes me want to get this book ASAP and see what’s going on. I don’t think I need to add that I’m keeping this one on my list, haha.
A Date with Darcy – Tiffany Schmidt
This is a no brainer. I actually read the second book last year and loved all the bookish references. Don’t worry, these can be read as standalones. And while here, I recommend the second book The Boy Next Story.
Without Merit – Colleen Hoover
As a big fan of Colleen Hoover I was excited when she announced she was writing a Young Adult book. I actually own this book, but just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. A few people I know were disappointed in this book, but we’ll see what I think.
The Speaker – Traci Chee
This trilogy is so underrated. At least that’s my opinion after only reading the first book. After reading The Reader, I was sad that I really knew no one who had read it. Traci Chee created an amazing world and story. I own The Speaker and the third and final book. I think I’ll do a re-read of The Reader in the near future.
Level Me Up – Lauren Helms
Level Me Up sounds like a romance that I need in my life. I’m not a gamer, but my boyfriend is and I always love books with characters that game or read. Apparently this is a trilogy, so I definitely need to check it out ASAP!
Removal Percentage: 50%
Current “to-read” shelf: 546
I was able to get rid of 50% today, so I can say I’m a happy reader for now. If you’ve read any of these, do you agree with my opinions? Should I have kept or removed a certain book? Let me know in the comments.
