Down the TBR Hole #27

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 only been two weeks since I did my last post, but with the number of books still on that list, it’s never too soon to do 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: 546 (my last post ended at 546, so for the first time I didn’t add any books!!)

This is How it Happened – Paula Stokes

I have to say that this book is going to be an intense read. Imagine waking up after being in a coma and not remembering what happened. I think this will also be a good example about how much impact the internet can have on someone. This is How it Happened is on my bookshelf, so this one is sticking around.

Keep

The Silver Swan – Amo Jones

I remember hearing a lot about this book a few years ago when it was released. It seems to be a darker New Adult book. A couple of years ago, I read a different book by this author. It was good, but didn’t blow me away. I know that says nothing about this book, but for now I’m going to remove it from my list.

Checkmate: This is Reckless – Kennedy Fox

Kennedy Fox is a duo that writes amazing books! I read the first duet in this series quite awhile ago. To be honest, I even started reading this one. Once again, I got distracted by other books. I do really want to return to this one though, so keeping it on my want-to-read list.

Keep

The Empress – S.J. Kincaid

This happens a lot writing these posts, but I actually forgot about The Empress. I loved The Diabolic, but then this book was postponed a few times. After how The Diabolic ended, I definitely need to read this. I know I enjoyed a book if I remember the ending clearly after a few years.

Keep

Into the Water – Paula Hawkins

After reading The Girl on the Train before Into the Water was released made me want to pick it up. Which I did and even started reading it. I get distracted a lot apparently. I don’t think I stopped until around 150 pages, but I only remember a few details. This one is staying around for now.

Keep

Trust – Kylie Scott

Trust was everywhere before it released in 2017 and I’m surprised I haven’t read it yet. Even though it sounded good, I totally forgot about it. I would probably love it, but with all the books I need and want to read, I’m removing this one for now.

Remove

Gone Rogue – Marissa Meyer

Going Rogue is the second book in the graphic novel duology that was a spin off after The Lunar Chronicles. I really enjoyed the first one and IKO is a favorite of mine. I own the second book, but just haven’t gotten to it. That needs to change!

Keep

More Than We Can Tell – Brigid Kemmerer

Okay, I really need to sit down and read this author’s contemporary books. After loving A Curse so Dark and Lonely, this as well as the first book, Lettters to the Lost, have been calling to me. As I’ve done before, I don’t keep sequels on my list if I haven’t read the first book yet.

Remove

Four Letter Word – J. Daniels

I read this series backwards, haha. So far I read the third and fourth book. Luckily these can be read as standalones. I love J. Daniels as an author and can’t get enough of her books. Four Letter Word has been sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read.

Keep

Hit the Spot – J. Daniels

Hit the Spot is actually the second book in the series the book above belongs to as well. I own it and will definitely read it, but once again, don’t keep sequels on this list anymore. At least, not before I read the first book!

Remove

Removal Percentage: 40%
Current “to-read” shelf: 542

Okay, so I didn’t remove a lot of books this week, but this was a list of hard decisions! Have you read any of these? If so, do you agree with my decisions? Do I need to change my mind about any of these books? Let me know in the comments.
