Like I said recently I really want to make it a habit of doing a Down the TBR Hole every other week. It’s been two weeks, so it’s time to see how my Goodreads want to read list is doing and hopefully I can shrink this shelf a bit!
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: 814 (
my last post ended at 812, which means I actually did good twice in a row!)
Tilly and the Lost Pages – Anna James
This trilogy is one that I really want to read and I own the first two books. I just haven’t read the first book yet. Tilly and the Lost Pages is the second book, so I will remove this one until I’ve read Tilly and the Bookwanderers.
Let There Be Light – A.M. Johnson
I read the second book in this (I think anyways) duology and it was so good!! The characters from Let There Be Light were in the second book and I’ve definitely become curious about their story. I need to read this one soon!
Wicked as You Wish – Rin Chupeco
Wicked as You Wish has a stunning cover! That’s definitely one I won’t forget. Also, the story still really appeals to me. The synopsis mentions a ragtag group of unlikely heroes. I love stories with those kind of groups.
Storm – Brigid Kemmerer
When I saw this title I honestly didn’t think of this author. I now remember she had this series that was released in 2016. It sounds interesting, but I’ll be surprised if I read that anytime soon. I don’t own it (yet), so that doesn’t make it easier.
The Red Zone – Amie Knight
Amie Knight is an author that writes books I really enjoy and I somehow missed this one. I’ve read The First Score that comes after this story, so I’ve definitely become curious about The Red Zone.
A Pack of Blood and Lies – Olivia Wildenstein
Okay, this is one I honestly don’t remember at all! A few of my Goodreads friends have read A Pack of Blood and Lies and have given some mixed reviews. Reading the synopsis still sounds interesting, but I don’t think I’ll be reading it anytime soon.
The Life We Have – Kelsey Kingsley
Kelsey Kingsley is one of my favorite authors and this is one of the few books I haven’t read by this author. I really need to change that really soon. She writes books that suck you in and don’t let go. The Life We Have is a character we’ve met in a previous book as well.
Regretting You – Colleen Hoover
Colleen Hoover is another author that I really enjoy. Regretting You is a book I have an ARC of, but haven’t gotten around to yet. I know quite a few readers that loved this book, so I definitely need to make this a priority soon!
The Paper & Hearts Society – Lucy Powrie
I actually own this book and got it for Christmas a couple of years ago. The main character loves books, so it definitely starts off good in my book. A few of my Goodreads friends think this book is really cute. This is probably the perfect book when you need a fast and lighthearted read.
There Will Come a Darkness – Katy Rose Pool
Another book that’s on my shelf and I still really need to read! Again, quite a few readers I know that have read this are really positive. The synopsis still sounds amazing and makes me want to pick this up right away.
Removal Percentage: 30%
Current “to-read” shelf: 811
So that’s my Down the TBR Hole for this week. What do you think of my choices? Are there any books you think I need to read first? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
