This is the first time in about a month I’ve had the chance to do a new Down the TBR Hole and to be honest I’m afraid to see how much my want to read shelf on Goodreads grew, haha. There were some other posts before this that had to be done, but now it’s back to business. Let’s see how I’ve done these last few weeks.
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: 855 (
my last post ended at 842. Oops… Even though I have to say it’s not as bad as I expected.)
Set Fire to the Gods – Sara Raasch & Kristen Simmons
Gladiators are always something interesting to read about and I don’t feel we get that an awful lot in YA books. Set Fire to the Gods does sound like a book that would interest me though. At this moment I don’t own it, so for now I’m going to remove it from my list.
The Ravens – Kass Morgan & Danielle Paige
Okay, so I kind of have to keep this one, haha. I have an e-arc and a special edition I received with my Illumicrate subscription. Also, a book with a secret coven of witches is definitely one I want to read.
Everyday Angel – Victoria Schwab
If you’ve followed the blog for a while now, you’ll know Schwab is one of my favorite authors. She also wrote a middle grade trilogy Everday Angel and this is a bundle of those three books. I own these books, so I need to read about the guardian angel trying to earn her wings.
None Shall Sleep – Ellie Marney
I’m a big fan of The Naturals and in that series there’s a group of teenagers that work with the FBI. So when I read the synopsis of None Shall Sleep I knew I needed this in my life. Two teenagers team up to help track down juvenile serial killers. That will definitely be an interesting story.
Greenglass House – Kate Milford
Middle grade books are becoming something I really enjoy, so Greenglass House definitely needs to stay on my list. This actually sounds a little spooky and seems perfect for a cold and rainy day.
All I Ask – Corinne Michaels
Look at how pretty this cover is! I’ve read books by Corinne Michaels before and they’ve been books I’ve really enjoyed. She is also another author that hits you in all the feels. I have a feeling I need this second chance romance and hope to read it soon.
One Night Stand-In – Lauren Blakely
This is the fourth book in the Boyfriend Material series and I’ve loved the first three books. I’m actually surprised I haven’t read One Night Stand-In yet. Lauren Blakely writes swoony books with characters you can’t forget. Also, she always knows how to make me laugh.
Once and Future Witches – Alix E. Harrow
Wow, this is the second book on the list this week that I have the e-arc for and a special edition hardcover from Illumicrate. I know Once and Future Witches will be a book for me and I’ve honestly only heard great things about this book so far.
The Good for Nothings – Danielle Banas
I have to say that the cover of The Good for Nothings is the first thing that caught my eye. A thieving space crew made up of misfits sounds like something that could make an interesting story. This seems like it will be a fast read.
Stone Princess – Devney Perry
When I saw Stone Princess pop up on this list I was surprised, because I really thought that this was a book I had already read. And I was right! There’s just a different version on my want to read list. I have to say I’m not normally a fan of MC romances, but this one is truly amazing!
Removal Percentage: 20%
Current “to-read” shelf: 853
Okay, so I didn’t do as well as I’d hoped when I started writing this post. Once again it was a hard week, because there are a lot of books that sound amazing. What do you think of my choices? Do you agree? If you’ve read some of these, let me know which one I should pick up first.
