Down the TBR Hole #77

So I know that these past two weeks haven’t gone great with my want to read shelf, haha. I’m definitely going to need to stick to these Down the TBR Hole posts for quite some time.

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: 933 (my last post ended at 920. So in 2 weeks I added 13 books. Oops! That’s basically one a day since my last post, haha.)

Not Your #LoveStory – Sonia Hartl

I remember this book releasing in 2020, because I remember the main character having her own YouTube channel. Going viral isn’t always a good thing and can mess up a lot of things. I have a feeling the main character is going to figure that one out.


The Girls Are All So Nice Here – Laurie Elizabeth Flynn

The Girls Are All So Nice here is a psychological thriller I’m definitely interested in. Two best friends come to their reunion to realize someone wants revenge for what they did years ago. I love the fact that this seems to be told in dual timelines. I still really want to read this one.


The Last Apothecary – Sarah Penner

This book has a stunning cover, but I’ve heard so many mixed reviews about this one. I am the reader that likes to form their own opinions, but I don’t know if I’ll be picking this one up anytime soon.


Much Ado About You – Samantha Young

Our main character needs to make a change after not getting a promotion. And her planned holiday comes with a temporary position at the bookstore below her apartment. That’s all I needed to know to want to read this one. Add the fact that it’s a romcom and I was sold!


Ignite the Sun – Hanna Howard

I can’t imagine living in a world without the sun. Ignite the Sun follows a girl who wants to bring the sun back to her world. This is still such an interesting concept and I actually still have the e-arc (oops…).


A Rush of Wings – Laura E. Weymouth

Laura E. Weymouth is an author that writes beautiful lyrical books and I’ve enjoyed both of the books I’ve read by her. A Rush of Wings is the next book and look at this stunning cover. I have a feeling it’ll be another book I enjoy.


She Drives Me Crazy – Kelly Quindlen

She Drives Me Crazy is a enemies to lovers YA romcom. Yes, please! It got even better when it was described as a book for fans of Becky Albertalli and Casey McQuiston. I love both of those authors, so I was sold. Sounds like a good summer read.


Westcott High – Sarah Mello

I honestly don’t remember Westcott High and by the looks of it not many people have actually read this book. There are only 113 rating and this book released almost three years ago. While it does still sounds really interesting I mean who could pass up Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl? I don’t own this book though, so for now I’m taking it off this list.


The Naming – Alison Croggon

The Naming is a book I heard a friend of mine talk about awhile ago and it sounded interesting. It has a lot of typical tropes like the chosen one and saving the world from a terrifying evil. This series does sound interesting though.


The Cost of Knowing – Brittney Morris

Out of all the books on this list I’m most surprised I haven’t read The Cost of Knowing yet. After loving this author’s previous book, Slay, I was anxiously awaiting this release. I know it’s going to be an emotional read, because the main character forsees his brother’s death.



Removal Percentage: 20%
Current “to-read” shelf: 931

So I only managed to remove two book from my want to read list, but at least it’s something! What did you think of my choices? Would you have made different decisions? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
