Down the TBR Hole #32

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: 599 (my last post ended at 583, which means it’s still good for me to do these posts, haha.)

By a Charm and Curse – Jaime Questell

I remember seeing this book all over the place for awhile and I thought it was interesting. For some reason the hype kind of disappeared, but friends that have read By a Charm and Curse were pretty positive about it. Even though this still sounds really good, I don’t think I’ll end up getting around to this book.

The Shadow Cipher – Laura Ruby

The Shadow Cipher is a book I remember being really curious about, but not many people were talking about it. I recently saw this in the bookstore and decided to see if it was available on Storytel. It is, so I think I’ll keep this one around a bit longer.

The Simple WIld – K.A. Tucker

K.A. Tucker is an author I really need to read more from. I loved Ten Tiny Breaths and have been wanting to continue with that series for ages. The Simple Wild is another book I hear amazing things about and actually have on my shelf!

A Curse so Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer

These are the kind of books I like on this list. It’s a case of I’ve already read this book, but had a different edition on my “want-to-read” list. A Curse so Dark and Lonely is one that I loved and really recommend.

Remove

Born Sinner – S.L. Jennings

I actually don’t remember adding this to my Goodreads. Only a couple friends have read Born Sinner. One was really positive, but the other one only gave this book two stars. Reading the synopsis doesn’t really make me want to read it right away, so I think I’ll let this one go.

Remove

Notes from My Captivity – Kathy Parks

For some reason I remember this cover, but not the story. Again, no one I know has read Notes from My Captivity. The plot still sounds like something that would interest be. That being said, I don’t own the book yet and don’t think I’ll be buying it soon.

Remove

Night Pleasures – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Sometimes I really wonder where I find the books I put on Goodreads. At times, I really don’t ever remember hearing about a certain book. Night Pleasures is one of these books. Quite a few of my friends have read this one and a lot are really positive. Even though Night Pleasures sounds interesting, there are so many books I want to read and this one doesn’t call to me enough to make it a priority.

Remove

In Her Skin – Kim Savage

I’m actually surprised that I haven’t read In Her Skin yet. This is a book I really wanted to read that sounded really good. The synopsis still sounds like something I’ll really love, so I want to read this one soon. I just looked on Storytel and the audiobook is available, so In Her Skin will be on my TBR soon.

Keep

The Angel Trials – Michelle Madow

The Angel Trials is a paranormal romance. I think this is a week of not remember the books on my list, haha. This book sounds good, but I don’t think I’ll end up getting to this one.

Remove

King of Ashes – Raymond E. Feist

I read The Riftwar Saga by this author years ago and I loved it. I remember flying through those books. King of Ashes sounds like another really interesting series. I don’t know if or when I’ll get around to it, but I want to keep this one on my list.

  1. Wow you’re so good at removing books from your TBR pile 😀 I love reading these posts. My TBR is pretty tidy and short at the moment though. I really enjoyed The Simple Wild, so I hope you do too! King of Ashes looks interesting. I haven’t heard of it before now but I’ll check it out further. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
