Down the TBR Hole #30

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. I’m trying to make this a regular post!

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: 565 (my last post ended at 545, something went really wrong these past two weeks…)

Man Hands – Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

I started this series by reading the third book, Boy Toy, and I loved every minute of it! The only reason I haven’t continued with this series, is because I’ve been distracted by other books, haha. I really want to read them though!

Keep

Prince Charming – Rachel Hawkins

This is another case of too many books, not enough time. I remember when this book was called Royals and had a different cover. It’s actually a case of cover change that I like. The story also sounds like something I’ll love, so I’m definitely keeping Prince Charming.

Keep

The Last Namsara – Kristen Ciccarelli

It’s pretty sad, I have a signed copy of this book and have read the first 70 pages. I’ll have to start over again, but I was enjoying what I was reading. My reading habits seem to distract me often.

Keep

Providence – Caroline Kepnes

I’m a big fan of You and Hidden Bodies, so I was pretty excited to see this author release a new book. So far I’ve heard some mixed reviews and it’s definitely made me hesitate to pick this one up! The synopsis still sounds interesting, so I’ll keep it around for now!

Keep

What If It’s Us – Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera

Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera have both written some books that I’ve loved! This is their first project together and it sounds really good. I know Isabelle read it and enjoyed the story. I have the paperback on my shelf, so I’ll eventually get to it.

Keep

All Your Perfects – Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover is an author that always makes me cry, haha. Even though that’s the case, the books I’ve read by her have been really good. I even remember waiting for this book to be released and I’m surprised that I haven’t read this one yet (I’m really repeating myself with wondering why I haven’t read books this round).

Keep

Until You’re Mine – Cindi Madsen

Cindi Madsen is an author I really enjoy, but I don’t know if this will be the book for me. The synopsis sounds interesting, but I’m not a big fan of MMA. A few friends have read this one and I see mixed reviews. I think I’ll get rid of this one for now.

Remove

Far From the Tree – Robin Benway

I remember this book being pitched for fans of This Is Us. That is a show I really love and was excited for this story. Another case of I started it and got distracted. I added this book to my shelves last year and really need to continue!

Keep

The Queens of Innis Lear – Tessa Gratton

The Queens of Innis Lear was a book that I saw everywhere near its release. After that I know it got some mixed reviews, but it does still sound interesting. This is a book that’s pretty big, so I think for now I’ll take it off the list for now.

Remove

Juniper Limits – Lora Richardson

I read the first book, The Edge of Juniper, quite some time ago and remember enjoying it. Again, another case of I started but got distracted, haha. I will get to this one eventually! This author writes really good books, so I need more.

Keep

Removal Percentage: 20%
Current “to-read” shelf: 563

I didn’t do that well this time around, haha. Removing only two wasn’t really good. Oh well.. Let’s just hope I don’t add another 20 books to my want-to-read list in the next two weeks. What do you think of my choices? Would you have made a different decision? Let me know.
