Down the TBR Hole #39

It’s been about a month since I’ve done a Down the TBR Hole. Even though my Goodreads want-to-read shelf hasn’t gotten too out of control since the last time, it’s still high enough that I need to keep on top of this! So I decided to do a new 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: 736 (my last post ended at 725, which means I did pretty good these past two weeks…)

Fan the Fame – Anna Priemaza

Whenever it comes to books that have to do with fandom, I’m here for it! That being said, I think Fan the Fame sounds really good. I have to be honest and say that I don’t know when/if I’ll get around to this one. So remove for now.

Just Pretending – Leah Rooper & Kate Rooper

I read Just One of the Royals and it was a really cute and fast read. This was actually the second book in the trilogy, but can be read as a standalone. Just Pretending still sounds like a book I’ll love, but just like I said with the previous book, if I’m honest, I don’t know when/if I’ll be reading this one.

Remove

The Society – K.A. Linde

K.A. Linde is an author I love and the three previous books in this series were really good. So The Society has to stick around, so I can find out how it all plays out!

Keep

All These Beautiful Strangers – Elizabeth Klehfoth

The first thing I think of when I see this title is the edges on this book that say “I Know”. All These Beautiful Strangers is a book on my shelf that I really want to read. I was actually just looking at it yesterday when picking out a book for Instagram.

Keep

The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Chokshi

I’ve enjoyed her middle grade series (Aru Shah) and The Star-Touched Queen duology. The Gilded Wolves has been on my radar for awhile and I received the really pretty hardcover for Christmas last year. This book seems to be one people either really enjoy or dislike, so I’m curious to see where I’m at after reading it.

Keep

This Splintered Silence – Kayla Olson

I’m really curious about more science fiction books and The Splintered Silence still sounds like a book I’d really enjoy. That being said, with the way the world is at the moment, I don’t know if I want to read a book about a deadly virus. So I’ll remove this one for now.

Remove

Once & Future – A.R. Capetta

Once & Future was a book I was looking forward to, but I don’t think I’ll be picking this one up. Quite a few of my friends that have read this book didn’t really enjoy it or thought it was disappointing. They seem to have a similar taste as me, so I don’t think this one is for me.

Remove

Hot Dog Girl – Jennifer Dugan

This is a book I’m still debating about. A few friends really loved it and others didn’t like all of the aspects in the story. Hot Dog Girl sounds like a book I’d enjoy, so I’ll keep it around for a bit longer.

Keep

Virtually Yours – Sarvenaz Tash

Virtually Yours still sounds like a book I’m going to love. It’s just with so many books, I actually forgot about it. I really think I’ll enjoy this book, so I’m definitely keeping it on my list.

Keep

A Danger to Herself and Others – Alyssa B. Sheinmel

I really like that mental health is becoming a topic in more and more YA books. A Danger to Herself and Others is a book I see talked about quite frequently and I really want to read it myself.

Keep

Removal Percentage: 40%
Current “to-read” shelf: 732

This week wasn’t a bad week for my Down the TBR Hole post. I managed to remove 4 out of 10 books from my list. If you’ve read any of the books I’ve removed or kept and disagree with my decision, please let me know. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
