It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve written a Down the TBR Hole post, but it’s actually only been two weeks. The way time goes is weird at times, haha. With my Goodreads TBR still being so high I’m definitely going to stick to doing these posts regularly.
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 854. So 7 new books since last time. It’s not a lot, but let’s see if I can get rid of a few this week.)
Seven Devils – Laura Lam & Elizabeth May
Seven Devils is a book I actually have, because Illumicrate did a special edition. I don’t read much science fiction, but I want to read more. I’m hoping the crew in this book is as amazing as some of the crews I’ve read in other books.
Ghosting: A Love Story – Tash Skilton
Stories with characters meeting online and not knowing who they are in real life is something I love reading. In the synopsis it states that there’s fun banter. Something I always love. Definitely a book I’ll pick up.
Kiss the Stars – A.L. Jackson
I love romances and there are so many out there that I know I won’t get to them all. Even though this sounds interesting it’s not one that has all my attention and that I need to read it now. Maybe I’ll come back to it in the future.
Across the Green Grass Fields – Seanan McGuire
Across the Green Grass Fields is one I started reading earlier this year with the audiobook. The narrator just didn’t work for me, so I plan on reading the e-book soon. I have an e-arc of the next book releasing in January, so it’s time to read this one.
The Black Kids – Christina Hammonds Reed
I can’t believe it’s been a year since The Black Kids released and I still haven’t read it. The Black Kids was a book I heard a lot about before it released and was very intrigued. It takes place in the 90s and I love reading about the time when I grew up. Definitely not getting rid of this one.
Wrong Text, Right Love – Claudia Y. Burgoa
Okay, once again I love books with text messages, e-mails, or anything like that. Add in the main character who thinks she drunk texts her ex, but it ends up being a stranger and I have a feeling I’m in for a laugh.
A Love Hate Thing – Whitney D. Grandison
To start off I love this cover! A Love Hate Thing is a book I’ve heard a lot about and it’s been a lot of positive things. I have a feeling this will be an emotional one, but that isn’t a bad thing at all.
The Player Next Door – K.A. Tucker
A second chance enemies to lovers romance? Sign me up! I’ve read books by K.A. Tucker and have really enjoyed what I’ve read. So this is one I have to give a try.
Into the Heartless Wood – Joanna Ruth Meyer
Into the Heartless Wood is a book I saw everywhere when it released at the beginning of this year. For some reason I haven’t really felt the need to pick it up and reading the synopsis I don’t think I’ll be picking it up anytime soon. I have to say this could be a book I pick up in the future.
Perfect on Paper – Sophie Gonzales
Okay, Perfect on Paper should be a book I’ve already read! It was one of my most anticipated releases this year and I still haven’t gotten around to it. I am determined to read this one really soon!
Removal Percentage: 20%
Current “to-read” shelf: 859
So I only removed two this week, but it seems I’ve added some amazing sounding books to my Goodreads want to read list. What do you think of my choices? If you’ve read any of these, would you have made different decisions? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
