Down the TBR Hole #34

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 a week, but there have been so many new cover reveals, that I’ve added more books to my want to read shelf.

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: 646 (my last post ended at 627, which means that the cover reveals have been really bad for my list…)

Ninth House – Leigh Bardugo

I don’t have to think long about this one. Ninth House is a book I’ve been really curious about and just haven’t read yet. Isabelle and I both bought the Waterstones edition and it’s gorgeous. Ninth House is a mystery and I think this may be a perfect Halloween read.


Light Mage – Laurie Forest

I’m not going getting rid of this one, because I don’t want to read it. Light Mage is being removed from my list, because I have the bundle of short stories, The Rebel Mages. At the moment, I’m still reading The Iron Flower, but will be reading this one after that.


Hearts Unbroken – Cynthia Leitich Smith

Even though Hearts Unbroken sounds really interesting, a few friends of mine have read it and weren’t really positive. They have a similar reading taste as me, so I trust their judgement. I don’t own this book, so it was an easier decision to make.


Flunked – Jen Calonita

I just had to have this one, because the series is names Fairy Tale Reform School. That sounds like a book that I need. As I’ve mentioned lately, middle grade has been something I’ve really been enjoying. And Flunked sounds really cute.


A Wish for Us – Tillie Cole

A Thousand Boy Kisses was a book that had me crying my heart out, but I loved it so much. A Wish for Us sounds like it’s going to be really emotional again, but it sounds amazing. I need to get this really soon.


Fighting for Everything – Laura Kaye

Romance books tend to be standalones, but that connect in certain ways. Fighting for Everything is the first book in this series and I’ve read the second one already. I enjoyed Fighting for What’s His was really good, so of course I need to read the others in this series.


Skyward – Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is an author I originally started to read when he finished The Wheel of Time series. I also recently enjoyed Mistborn, so I hope that I love Skyward just as much. I’ve been enjoy sci-fi this year, so I need to get to Skyward as well. I’ve heard amazing things about this book.


Ruthless Magic – Megan Crewe

Ruthless Magic is a book I believe I have a Netgalley ARC for, I should check that, haha. The story sounds really good though. Mages that are in a competition to keep their magic sounds like something I need to read.


Straight Up Love – Lexi Ryan

Again, this is a romance series that I started later in the series. I really enjoyed the books I’ve read in The Boys of Jackson Harbor. The best thing about books like these is that they’re fast reads and I love the characters. Hopefully that’s the case for Straight Up Love as well.


Chasing Him – Kennedy Fox

Kennedy Fox is an author duo I really love. They write intense romances with cliffhangers that really hurt, haha. Changing Him seems to be an exception of that, but it still sounds good. We have a single dad that runs a bed and breakfast. I’m curious about this one!



Removal Percentage: 20%
Current “to-read” shelf: 644

Okay, I failed terribly this week, haha. These books just all sound really good. What do you think of my decisions? Should I have kept or removed something I didn’t? Let me know in the comments!
