Okay, so I’m kind of cheating with today’s Down the TBR Hole. I’m actually working ahead (I know it’s a miracle, haha), so I’m typing this post two days after my last Down the TBR Hole post came online. So my shelf is the same as it was for once.
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 859. So no new books added, but it’s only been a few days since I wrote the last post.)
Love the One You Hate – R.S. Grey
R.S. Grey is an author I definitely look to when I need a good romantic comedy. That being said she has many books and I don’t know when I’ll be catching up on them. I’m sure I’ll eventually read Love the One You Hate, because it does sound good. It’s just not happening right now.
To Have and to Hoax – Martha Waters
Historical romance is a genre I haven’t read much of, but after reading Bringing Down the Duke I’ve been more curious. To Have and to Hoax sounds like one that I’ll also enjoy, so I’m definitely keeping it around for now.
Rebel Rose – Emma Theriault
Okay, Rebel Rose is the first book this week that I don’t remember. This seems to be a Beauty and the Beast retelling. To be honest I’ve seen so many of those I don’t know if I’ll end up picking this one up. I also really haven’t heard anyone talk about it.
Kate in Waiting – Becky Albertalli
Becky Albertalli is a contemporary author that I really enjoy. Kate in Waiting is a book I’m actually surprised I haven’t read yet. That needs to change soon. I have a feeling this story will get complicated, because two best friends end up crushing on the same person.
The Things We Leave Unfinished – Rebecca Yarros
I know for sure that this one will be staying on my want to read shelf until I get around to reading it. Rebecca Yarros is one of my favorite authors even though her stories always make me cry. I guess that’s why I haven’t gotten around to The Things We Leave Unfinished, haha.
Truel1f3 – Jay Kristoff
The first two books in the Lifelike series were so good and I was anxiously awaiting the final book, Truel1f3. The only reason I haven’t gotten to this one yet is I’ve been waiting for the paperback that matches my first two books to release. Once that happens I will be finishing this trilogy.
City of the Uncommon Thief – Lynne Bertrand
Okay, the second book of this post that I don’t remember. And to be honest after reading the first line of the synopsis I don’t think I’ll be reading City of the Uncommon Thief. The story of a quarantined city. Even though this is from war and not a disease I’ve heard a bit too much about quarantine this past year and a half.
The Left-Handed Booksellers of London – Garth Nix
Okay, all I needed to add this book to my list was the word booksellers. This seems to be a book with a magical world and it seems to get quite a few positive reviews. I’ve never read anything by Garth Nix, but I definitely want to give this author a try.
I Kissed Alice – Anna Birch
I Kisssed Alice was pitched as a book for fans of Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda and Fangirl. I loved both books, so I’m definitely intrigued. Two “enemies” both working for a scholarship unknowingly work together on a fanfic site to create a graphic novel. I’ve heard some mixed reviews about this, but I still want to give it a try.
Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O! – Carly Usdin & Nina Vakueva
I read the first volume of this graphic novel on Scribd last year and when I saw the next installment was out I marked it as to read. I haven’t seen it on Scribd yet, but I hope I get access to it soon.
Removal Percentage: 30%
Current “to-read” shelf: 856
Okay, so I only removed three books from my want to read shelf this week, but at least it’s something. What do you think of my choices? Would you have chosen differently? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
