Down the TBR Hole #37

Like I said two weeks ago when I did a Down the TBR Hole post, for some reason my want to read shelf is getting out of control. So I’ve decided to make sure I do these posts a little more frequently to see if I can get it under control.

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: 728 (my last post ended at 716, which means I’m still adding more than removing, haha…)

The Deceivers – Kristen Simmons

The Deceivers takes place at a boarding school. I’m a fan of that setting, so I don’t even have to think about this one. Also, it’s a school for con artists. That’s not something you see every day. I’ve heard good things about this book, so I’m keeping it around.

The Last Time I Lied – Riley Sager

I keep seeing this author’s books everywhere. They sound pretty good and I’ve been wanting to read more thrillers. Maybe The Last Time I Lied will be a good one for this upcoming season. It always seems that camps don’t turn out to be what they should be, haha.

Seven Days of You – Cecilia Vinesse

Even though this sounds like the perfect book for me (Anna and the French Kiss meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) a few friends have given this a really low rating. They have the same reading preferences as me, so I think I’ll trust them on Seven Days of You.

Remove

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee – Jeff Zentner

I own this book, so it’s easy to say that I’ll be keeping it. Jeff Zentner is an author I’ve been really curious about. I own all three of this book and want to binge them back to back. Apparently there are a few Easter eggs here and there. I’m really curious and need to read these soon!

The Replacement Crush – Lisa Brown Roberts

First of all the main character is a book blogger. That’s enough to make me want to read The Replacement Crush and the story does sound like something I’ll love. Also, I see this book everywhere and it apparently has references to other books and authors that I love. I really need to get my hands on this book.

Keep

House of Dragons – K.A. Linde

Besides writing amazing romances, K.A. Linde is amazing at fantasy. I loved her Ascension series. House of Dragons actually comes out in a month and I can’t wait. I have a feeling I’m going to love this series.

Keep

Saving Jenna – Christina Butrum

Christina Butrum writes sweet and clean small town romances. They’re always cute and fast reads. Saving Jenna sounds like it’s going to be the same. Even though I’ve enjoyed them, a lot of her books are similar. So for now I think I’m going to remove this one from my want to read shelf.

Remove

Arrownheart – Rebecca Sky

It seems to be a trend that books that are written on Wattpad get published and I think that’s amazing. I remember seeing Arrowheart around before it got released in 2018. Even though it’s probably still an amazing book, reading the synopsis now it’s doesn’t sound as interesting to me anymore.

Remove

Wayward Son – Rainbow Rowell

I finally did a reread of Fangirl and Carry On, so I can sit down and read Wayward Son. I still remember how surprised I was when the author announced there would be more books in this world. My copy of Wayward Son is a pretty Waterstones edition and I’m excited to read it.

Keep

Love, Sincerely, Yours – Sara Ney & Meghan Quinn

Two authors that write books that I really enjoy teamed up to write a book together. The synopsis is already a hint at how hilarious this book will be. I don’t know how I forgot about this one. I’ll definitely have to read Love, Sincerely, Yours very soon.

Removal Percentage: 30%
Current “to-read” shelf: 725

Okay, so I only managed to remove three books this week, but that’s three less than I had. What do you think of my choices? If you would’ve made a different choice with any of these, let me know in the comments!
