Down the TBR Hole #64

It’s been two weeks, so once again time for a new Down the TBR Hole. I’ve only added a few books to my want to read shelf since last time, so it’s time to get through the next ten books. Let’s see how many I get off the want to read shelf.

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: 861 (my last post ended at 858. So only 3 new books since last times. Not so bad!)

Girl Gone Viral – Alisha Rai

A live tweet event goes viral and Girl Gone Viral sounds like a really cute romance. That being said it’s the second of a series. The first book The Right Swipe is one I haven’t read yet. Even though these can be read separately I’m not going to keep multiple books from the same series on this shelf.

Blazewrath Games – Amparo Ortiz

A book with a world cup with dragons. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything like this before. The cover is stunning and I’d definitely love to learn more about this world.

Keep

The Test – Sylvain Neuvel

The Test is only a little over 100 pages, but it seems to be really impressing people. Isabelle read this one and thought it was amazing. A British Citizen Test seems to take a tragic turn and I have a feeling this one is going to be a wild ride.

Fangirl, Vol. 1: The Manga – Sam Maggs & Gabi Nam

This is a manga based on the book Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Fangirl is a book I really enjoyed and after recently reading my first manga I think I want to give this illustrated version of the story a go!

Keep

A History of Wild Places – Shea Ernshaw

A History of Wild Places is a book I actually forgot about, but seeing it again has me curious. I loved The Wicked Deep by this author. I believe this is the author’s first adult book and it sounds dark and mysterious. Just what I’ve been looking for lately.

Sisters of Sword and Song – Rebecca Ross

When it comes to fantasy stories it doesn’t happen often that you get a standalone. A lot of times stories need quite the world building and that’s hard to do in one book. Sisters of Sword and Song is a standalone and it sounds good. A few of my friends were really amazed by this book, so I have to give it a go!

Keep

The Shrunken Head – Lauren Oliver & H.C. Chester

A friend of mine read The Shrunken Head and loved it. From what I gather this seems to be a darker middle grade story and I seem to like those. This really could be the perfect Halloween type of read.

Keep

Rifts & Refrains – Devney Perry

I read the first book in this series Lies & Lullabies. This trilogy is written by three romance authors that I love, so Rifts & Refrains definitely needs to stay on my TBR.

Keep

Muses & Melodies – Rebecca Yarros

Muses & Melodies is the third book in the series I just talked about when mentioning Rifts & Refrains. Rebecca Yarros is ana amazing author even though she does always make me cry. This is the third book and I haven’t read the second one yet, so for now this is getting taken off the list.

Remove

Blood Sworn – Scott Reintgen

Ashlords was such an interesting book, so when Blood Sworn was announced it went right on my list. Blood Sworn has a stunning cover and I need to see how Adrian, Pippa, and Imelda‘s stories continue.

So I didn’t do too good this week getting books off my want to read shelf. It was just a really hard week with all the books sounding amazing! Have you read any of these? If so, would you agree with my choices? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
