Down the TBR Hole #35

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 and book announcements, 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: 671 (my last post ended at 644, which means that I added almost 30 books to my Goodreads shelf within two weeks…)

Winterwood – Shea Ernshaw

I loved The Wicked Deep (actually read it in one sitting), so when I heard this author would be publishing Winterwood, I knew I needed it. This is the case of just not having had time to pick this one up yet. I will eventually read it though!

Keep

All the Little Lights – Jamie McGuire

For the longest time, I’ve wanted to read All the Little Lights. I just don’t know what has stopped me from getting around to it. The story sounds interesting still even though there are definitely some mixed reviews. I’m not 100% sure I’ll eventually come back to All the Little Lights, but I’ll keep it around for now.

Keep

The Priory of the Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon

I read the first book in The Bone Season series and really enjoyed this author’s writing. The Priory of the Orange Tree is a really big book, but a lot of readers I know really enjoyed the story. Dragons and royalty are normally two elements that really work for me.

Keep

Fantastic Beasts – The Crimes of Grimwald: The Original Screenplay – J.K. Rowling

Even though the screenplay books are really pretty, I don’t think I’ll be getting to this one. I’ve seen the movie, I don’t need to read the script as well.

Remove

Kingdom of Ash – Sarah J. Maas

This is simple, I’ll definitely be keeping this one. Kingdom of Ash is one I should’ve read quite a long time ago. Throne of Glass is one of my favorite series, but I guess I’m just not ready for it to end.

Keep

The Princess and the Fangirl – Ashley Poston

Geekerella is one of my favorites when it comes to looking for a cute contemporary. The Princess and the Fangirl is a companion novel, but takes place with a couple characters we already know. I started listening to this audiobook a few months ago, but it just wasn’t working for me, even though I was enjoying the story. I picked up the paperback to read this one that way.

Keep

Famous in a Small Town – Emma Mills

Books that take place in small towns tend to become favorites! Famous in a Small Town sounds like a book I’m going to love and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about Emma Mills!

Keep

The Cheerleaders – Kara Thomas

Little Monsters was one of the first thrillers I had read for a long time. Kara Thomas really impressed me with that book, so buying The Cheerleaders wasn’t something I had to think about. I really want to make sure this one ends up on my Fall TBR!

Keep

Slayer – Kiersten White

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a favorite show of mine and Slayer is described as a spinoff/retelling to that. I only recently started watching the show again, so it’s funny that this book pops up now! I know quite a few people were disappointed in this one, but I hope I end up enjoying it.

Keep

Always Forever Maybe – Anica Mrose Rissi

I was supposed to be on the blog tour for Always Forever Maybe. This is an intense read with emotional and physical abuse, so it may not always be easy to read. I’m really curious about the story though!

So that’s my Down the TBR Hole this week and I did really bad! I really need to get this shelf under control, haha. What did you think of my decisions this week? Would you have chosen differently? Let me know in the comments!
