Down the TBR Hole #36

I don’t know what’s happened, but it’s been a month since my last Down the TBR Hole post and I’ve added 49 books to my want to read shelf. It’s definitely time for me to do these posts more frequently!

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: 719 (my last post ended at 670, which means that something went terribly wrong these past few weeks…)

Two Can Keep a Secret – Karen M. McManus

One of Us is Lying was an interesting story even if the ending let me down a bit. When I heard about Two Can Keep a Secret I was definitely intrigued. I even own the pretty sprayed edged paperback edition of this book. So I will be reading this book.

#FashionVictim – Amina Akhtar

Again, this is a case of I didn’t even remember I had this book on my list. Reading the synopsis again, definitely has me curious again. #FashionVictim sounds like an interesting book and maybe even one to read around Halloween.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V.E. Schwab

I don’t even have to think about this one! The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is one my most anticipated releases of 2020 and I just got an ARC. So no way am I getting rid of this one. In fact, I’ll actually be reading this book really soon!

Keep

Southern Pleasure – Kaylee Ryan

Southern Pleasure doesn’t sound bad at all, but if I’m honest, I feel like this is a story I’ve read before. Then again, that happens a lot in romance. In this case I don’t own the book and have actually never read something by this author. For now I think I’ll take it off my list.

Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss – Kasie West

Kasie West is an author I go to when I’m looking for a fun contemporary. I haven’t read many of her books yet, but have enjoyed what I’ve been able to read so far. Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss has some mixed reviews, but I still want to read it for myself.

Shades of Magic Vol. 1: The Steel Prince – V.E. Schwab

Wow, two V.E. Schwab books in one Down the TBR Hole. I’m still working on the Shades of Magic trilogy, but have loved it. As a fan of graphic novels, I needed this one for my collection. Before I read this one though, I need to finish the other trilogy. I know this is a prequel, but I like reading things in a certain way, haha.

Keep

Cry Baby – Ginger Scott

If I remember correctly, I added Cry Baby after I read A Boy Like You. That was such an amazing book and Ginger Scott is a talented writer. Seeing how I still have to finish that duology, I think I’ll remove Cry Baby for now.

The Purloined Prophecy – Morgan G. Farris

The Chalam Faerytales is one of my most favorite underrated fantasy series. I’ve actually read this one already, but for some reason I had added a different edition to my want to read shelf. I definitely recommend reading this series though.

Remove

Seventh Born – Monica Sanz

If I remember correctly, the publisher emailed me after I reviewed something on Netgalley if I wanted to read this one as well. I think. Okay, I only have to read that it takes place at an academy to know I need to read this school. I’m a fan of books that take place at schools or boarding schools.

Keep

When the Sky Fell Splendor – Emily Henry

Another book I can’t remember. When the Sky Fell Splendor sounds like a fun Halloween read. A spooky story with some paranormal elements. I’m not completely sure about this one, but I wouldn’t mind giving it a try.

Okay, so I didn’t remove many books this week. However, I did run into books I forgot about that sound pretty interesting. Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you thought in the comments!
