Down the TBR Hole #96

Once again I’m doing really good with keeping my Goodreads shelf stable, haha. Since last time there is one less book on my want to read shelf than two weeks ago. I’m definitely keeping my goal with this so far!

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: 884 (my last post ended at 885. So I’ve reduced this shelf again by one book!)

As If on Cue – Marisa Kanter

I’m starting off with a book I’m shocked I haven’t read yet. Enemies that have to work together to save the school band and theater budget. I love stories like this and I have a feeling romance is going to bloom.


Velvet Was the Night – Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Even though Mexican Gothic wasn’t my favorite book, I loved Silivia’s writing style. Velvet Was the Night takes place in Mexico in the 1970s. This is a thriller and I’m very intrigued!


Our Way Back to Always – Nina Moreno

Friends that grew apart find each other again to work on a bucket list. Both are dealing with things and who knows what will happen during this summer. I have a feeling Our Way Back to Always is going to be an emotional, but good read!


The Girls I’ve Been Before – Tess Sharpe

A daughter of a con artist is take hostage during a bank heist. I’m intrigued! I actually also have this one on my shelf, so I need to read this one ASAP. I’m wondering what she has learned from her father to help her get out of this situation.


In the Lives of Puppets  – TJ Klune

Everything I’ve read by TJ Klune has been 5 stars so far and I have a feeling In the Lives of Puppets will be the same. This book releases in April and I’m grateful to have an eARC. I’ll be reading it in March.


Muted – Tami Charles

Another book I’m surprised I haven’t read. Muted is based on true events and shows the darker side of the music industry. I believe I have the audiobook for this one, so I’ll have to pick it up soon.


One True Loves – Elise Bryant

One True Loves is the sequel to Happily Ever Afters. Even though they can be read as standalones it’s still a series and I try not to keep multiple books in a series on this shelf. I’ll definitely be reading this one though.


Briar Girls – Kim Wells

Briar Girls has a stunning cover, but I honestly don’t remember much about this story. After reading the synopsis and some reviews about this retelling I’m not sure this is going to be the book for me.


The Inheritance of Orquidea Divina – Zoraida Cordova

I’ve been wanting to read a book by Zoraida and this book sounds amazing. Stories that have past and present story lines can be very interesting and I have to say I’m curious about the mystery behind this family’s inheritance.


The Great Mrs. Elias – Barbara Chase-Riboud

Again, a book I don’t remember adding to my want to read shelf. I believe this is actually based on a figure in history and it sounds intriguing. I haven’t really been in a historical fiction mood lately and don’t know when I’ll pick this up.



Removal Percentage: 30%
Current “to-read” shelf: 881

That’s my Down the TBR Hole for this week! What do you think of my choices? Or which one would you pick up first? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.

One thought on “Down the TBR Hole #96

  1. It’s great to see that you’re keeping your Goodreads TBR shelf under control!
