Down the TBR Hole #94

Thankfully I’m still doing pretty good with my want to read shelf. Since my last Down the TBR Hole post I have actually taken a book off of my want to read shelf. Let’s see if I can get a few more off before the end of this post.

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: 895 (my last post ended at 896. So I’ve reduced this shelf again by one book!)

The Rehearsals – Annette Christie

As a big fan of the Groundhog Day twist in books, The Rehearsals caught my eye. A couple calls off their wedding after a disastrous wedding rehearsal. I have a feeling this book is going to be very dramatic, but also a lot of fun. Definitely one I still want to read.


Threadneedle – Cari Thomas

Even though I love stories where magic is first seen as dangerous, but the main character realizes it’s so much more. Threadneedle sounds like a great book. Except I don’t own this one and for now I’m taking it off of my shelf.


I Speak Boy – Jessica Brody

I Speak Boy is the first book on this week’s list that I don’t remember adding to this shelf. This middle grade book sounds adorable though. Our phone obsessed main character finds a magic app that can read a boy’s mind. This is one I’m definitely going to keep in mind for middle grade May later this year.


Maybe We’re Electric – Val Emmich

The second book this week I actually forgot about. Maybe We’re Electric does sound very intriguing. Our two main characters get stuck together in a snowstorm and discover they have a connection. This book is one that I would probably love. I don’t own it though and don’t think I’ll be getting it anytime soon.


You’ve Got Mail – Kate G. Smith

You’ve Got Mail sounds like a great book. I love when characters meet online. Except in this case our main character gets dumped through email by someone she isn’t even in a relationship with. After a lot of relationship drama she can’t help but point out that you don’t break up with someone through an email. They keep talking though and we all know it’s going to become more. I think I have an e-book of this one.


The People We Choose – Katelyn Detweiler

Family is always an interesting subject to read about. Especially in cases when people learn who their biological parents are. The People We Choose seems like it’s going to be an interesting read. I’ll have to check it out.


I Am Margaret Moore – Hannah Capin

I Am Margaret Moore released last year and I have an eARC, but still haven’t read it. Oops! I’ve been enjoying thrillers more, but haven’t read many paranormal thrillers. This will have to be one I add to my TBR soon.


The Marvelous – Claire Kann

Okay, this is an interesting week. The Marvelous is the third book on this week’s list that I don’t remember. The idea of six teens locked together in a mansion to win a prize is interesting, but I’m wondering if it’s not going to be too dramatic.


A Consuming Fire – Laura E. Weymouth

Laura E. Weymouth has written a few books that I’ve absolutely loved. At the moment though I think I’ve read just a few too many stories about characters wanting revenge on a god that’s killed a family member. So far now, I’m taking A Consuming Fire off of my list.


Down Comes the Night – Allison Saft

A few of my friends have really enjoyed Down Comes the Night and it sounds intriguing. Except at the moment I don’t own this book and I’m really trying to shrink my physical TBR, so for now it’s being taken off of my list.



Removal Percentage: 50%
Current “to-read” shelf: 890

So that’s all for this week’s Down the TBR Hole. I managed to remove half of the books on this week’s list. What do you think of my decisions? Would you have made any different decisions? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!
