Down the TBR Hole #66

So I’m typing this the day my last Down the TBR Hole comes online, so I haven’t had much time since typing the last one. The only good thing about doing these posts back to back is I haven’t added any new books to my want to read list!

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: 856 (my last post ended at 856. So no new books added, so yay me for now, haha.)

Kind of a Big Deal – Shannon Hale

This is a book I can remove from the list, because I’ve already read a different version of this book. Unfortunately, Kind of a Big Deal wasn’t for me. It didn’t live up to the expectations that I had.


The Mystwick School of Musicraft – Jessica Khoury

The Mystwick School of Musicraft is a middle grade book I’ve been curious about for quite some time. First this book was only available as an audio, but I believe all formats are available now. Musicians learn how to make magic. That sounds interesting!


Sing Me Forgotten – Jessica S. Olson

Sing Me Forgotten is a Phantom of the Opera retelling that sounds amazing. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book since it released earlier this year. Manipulating memories when you sing is definitely an interesting gift and I want to know how it plays out in this story.


Recommended for You – Laura Silverman

First off Recommended for You is pitched as To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets You’ve Got Mail and that definitely got my attention. The fact that the main characters are competing for the top bookseller bonus made it even more interesting. Any book that involves book gets my vote to be read.


Real Met Knit – Kwana Jackson

Okay, so I added Real Men Knit to my want to read shelf because of the title alone. Our main character is one of the siblings that will try and keep their adoptive mother’s knitting shop open. I can’t help but be intrigued.


Rebel Spy – Veronica Rossi

I should’ve read Rebel Spy quite some time ago, because I bought it for a readalong over a year ago (oops, haha). Historical fiction is a genre I’ve been really wanting to read more of. So I need to prioritize this one soon.


The God Game – Danny Tobey

The God Game is a book I heard about somewhere, but not quite sure where. The story sounds really interesting though. A videogame run by hackers and controlled by a mysterious A.I. That’s going to be an interesting story.


The Scapegracers – Hannah Abigail Clarke

I’m still kind of on the fence about The Scapegracers. An outcast teenage lesbian witch finds her coven hidden amongst the popular girls. This could turn out to be really fun, but also really bad. I’ve seen some mixed reviews. Maybe I’ll come back around to it eventually.


Lucky Girl – Jamie Pacton

Jamie Pacton has published two books so far that I’ve been really curious about. Lucky Girl is the latest one and I’m curious. Our main character wins millions, but is still seventeen and can’t cash the check on her own. Different options to be able to get this money could lead to many bad things. Is money really always worth it?


Lyrics & Curses – Candace Robinson

My attention was caught when I saw this book takes place in 1985 and is said to be for fans of Stranger Things and Pretty in Pink. I loved Pretty in Pink and the cover of Lyrics & Curses. I have a feeling the fantasy element in this story is going to get very interesting.



Removal Percentage: 20%
Current “to-read” shelf: 854

So that’s Down the TBR Hole for this week! I didn’t remove many books, but there were some amazing titles this week. What I love about these posts is that I’m reminded of some of the books I’ve wanted to read. Have you read any of these? Which book should I pick up first? Let me know in the comments!
