I think this is the first time I’ve started a Down the TBR Hole with less books on my want to read shelf than I ended with at the end of my last post! I’m very proud of myself! Hopefully I can keep this going.
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: 927 (
my last post ended at 930. So in 2 weeks I actually read three of the books that were on this shelf and added no new ones. Yay me!!)
Dead Dead Girls – Nekesa Afia
Dead Dead Girls is a book I was so excited about and I’m actually surprised I haven’t read this historical thriller. The sequel released this year, so I think it’s time for me to sit down and read this. This book takes place in the 1920s and that’s a time I’m really interested in.
Well Matched – Jen DeLuca
I’ve read the first two books in this series and they were a lot of fun. I worked at a kind of Renaissance Fair for a few years, so it’s fun to read about them. April and Mitch are both fun characters we’ve met in previous books and I’m excited to read their story.
The Christmas Pact – Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
As a person who loves everything Christmas I had to add The Christmas Pact to my want to read list. This is a novella and those tend to be hit or miss for me, but I’m still really curious about this enemies to lovers holiday novella.
Noble Prince – Devney Perry
I’ve already read the first three books in the Clifton Forge series and really enjoyed them. I don’t read many MC romances, but these had me hooked. The series is now complete, so it’s time to sit down and read the rest of the books. Luke and Scarlett’s story sounds amazing!
Wrapped Up in You – Talia Hibbert
Another holiday novella is on the list this week. Wrapped Up in You by Talia Hibbert is another one I’m surprised I haven’t read yet. Our main character is in love with his best friend’s little sister. Those romances can be a lot of fun! It is a novella though, so I hope it’s great.
Snowman – A.C. Netzel
I still really love this cover! It’s just so cute. And it seems that I have a lot of holiday themed books this week, haha. Snowman takes place in a town that goes all out for Christmas. Okay, this sounds like the perfect book for me.
These Hollow Vows – Lexi Ryan
All I needed to know about this book was how this book is pitched: A Court of Thorns and Roses meets Cruel Prince. This series takes place in two faerie courts and definitely has my attention. I’ve heard great things about this series.
The Woods Are Always Watching – Stephanie Perkins
The Woods Are Always Watching is a companion novel to There’s Someone Inside Your House. While that book became a bit predictable it’s one I still enjoyed. This would be the perfect read for this time of year. A three day hike in the woods seems to be asking for trouble when you know what kind of book it is.
The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne – Jonathan Stroud
I added The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne to my want to read shelf after meeting the author. It sounded like a lot of fun. Even though it still sounds interesting I haven’t been reading many dystopian books lately. So for now I don’t know when I’ll be picking this one up.
A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow – Laura Taylor Namey
A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow is a book I’ve heard a lot about and sounds like a book I’ll really enjoy. It seems to be a book that deals with some more serious subjects, but also just a girl trying to figure out what she wants in her life.
Removal Percentage: 10%
Current “to-read” shelf: 926
I only removed one book from my want to read shelf this week, but seeing how I’ve read three and haven’t had any I’m pretty happy. What do you think of my choices? Would you had done anything different? And if you have read any of these, let me know which one I should pick up first! I’d love to hear from you.
