This is probably my last Down the TBR Hole and I’m so close to getting under 900 books on my want to read shelf. My post today marks the 5th time I haven’t added any books to this shelf and even have one less than the last 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: 903 (
my last post ended at 904. So in 2 weeks I actually read one of the books on this shelf and haven’t added any new ones. Yay me!! I’m doing great!)
Of Silver and Shadow – Jennifer Gruenke
I still love this cover and I love books with magic and political aspects. There are so many books on my list for that meet this, so I think for now I’m taking this one off of my list.
Small Favors – Erin A. Craig
Small Favors is a book I’m surprised I haven’t read yet. I’m normally not a big fan of horror, but I’ve heard so many amazing things about this book. This is one I’m expecting to give me some creepy vibes while reading.
Wings of Ebony – J. Elle
Our main characters gets whisked away to an island of magic wielders and is also a half-god? Wings of Ebony sounds like a really intense read, but I have a feeling it’ll be one I love.
Plot Twist – Bethany Turner
Plot Twist is a book I added to my want to read list after seeing the title honestly. This books sounds really sweet, but I really haven’t heard much about it and I don’t own it at the moment. So for now it’s being taken off of my list.
Book Love – Debbie Tung
Debbie Tung creates collections of comics that are very relatable. So when I heard about Book Love I had to add it to my want to read list. At the moment I still haven’t added this one to my collection. I’ll definitely be coming back to it, but for now it’s not staying on my shelf.
How to Fail at Flirting – Denise Williams
Denise Williams is an author I’ve only read a novella from at the moment, but How to Fail at Flirting sounds like a book right up my alley. How to Fail at Flirting sounds like a perfect romance for me.
Don’t Hate the Player – Alexis Nedd
Don’t Hate the Player caught my attention because our main character is on the hockey field during the day and games at night. It’s not often that you see a female character that is also a gamer. I’m not one myself, but my boyfriend is, so it’s something I do like reading about.
This Poison Heart – Kalynn Bayron
Cinderella is Dead was an interesting book, so when Kalynn Bayron announced this book I knew I needed it. I actually added This Poison Heart to my shelves this summer. Our main character has magic and it seems this may lead to some betrayal and secrets.
Certain Dark Things – Silvia Moreno-Garcia
After reading Mexican Gothic earlier this year, I want to read more by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Her writing style really grabbed me and I’m curious to see if this is the case in other books. Stories about vampires are ones I tend to enjoy, so I have to give Certain Dark Things a try.
The Frame-Up – Meghan Scott Molin
I love the idea of the main character being a comic book writer and that she goes and helps the cops when scenes from her favorite comics are being recreated. I actually forgot about this book, but I’m glad I’ve stumbled upon it again in this post. May need to bump it up my TBR.
Removal Percentage: 30%
Current “to-read” shelf: 900
So I didn’t get under the 900 before the end of the year, but I’m so close!! What did you think of my choices this week? Anything you would have done differently? Or have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
