Down the TBR Hole #100

Today is my 100th Down the TBR Hole post! It’s still hard to believe I’ve already written so many of these posts. Since my last post I have one book less on my want to read shelf than in my last post. It’s not much, but it’s something!

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: 875 (my last post ended at 876. So that’s one less book than last time.)

If You, Then Me – Yvonne Woon

I remember the cover of this book was the first thing that caught my eye. As a fan of books where our main characters get to know each other online, but end up at the same place or in the same program I have to read If You, Then Me.


Lies My Memory Told Me – Sacha Wunsch

The idea of sharing memories is a nice idea, but can be scary when it’s woven into some kind of technology. Not being able to know what’s real or what’s an actual memory is a really scary thought. While the concept is interesting, between the mixed reviews and me not owning the book I’ll be removing Lies My Memory Told Me from my Goodreads want to read list.


White Smoke – Tiffany D. Jackson

Tiffany D. Jackson is an author I’ve been wanting to read something by.White Smoke seems like a good place to start. This YA psychological thriller sounds like the perfect rainy day read.


All Rhodes Lead Here – Mariana Zapata

Mariana Zapata is another author I’ve been saying I need to read something by. From what I’ve heard she’s the queen of slow burn romances and I love those. This small town grumpy/sunshine romance seems like a good one to start with.


A Shadow in the Ember – Jennifer L. Armentrout

So this is the first book in the spin off series for From Blood and Ash. To read this though, you need to read the first three books in the original series. I still have to read the third book (I’m catching up this year), so while I will read A Shadow in the Ember it’ll be taken off my list for now.


Dragonfly Girl – Marti Leimbach

Dragonfly Girl does sounds interesting, because not many books have main characters that are capable of bringing people back from the dead. At the moment, I don’t own this book and don’t think I’ll be picking it up soon. So for now I’m taking it off my list.


Sip Sip Bang Bang – Danika Stone

Danika Stone is an author that’s written a couple of YA contemporary books that I really enjoyed. Sip Sip Bang Bang is a book I remember reading about on Twitter. The story sounds interesting, but just like the previous book in this post, I don’t own it and I don’t think I’ll be getting it anytime soon.


Portrait of a Scotsman – Evie Dunmore

The A League of Extraordinary Women series has been a lot of fun and I’ve actually started reading Portrait of a Scotsman and I got distracted. So I’ll definitely have to sit down and finish this one soon. The fourth book is releasing in December, so there’s time to catch up.


Happy Endings – Thien-Kim Lam

Happy Endings is a second chance romance I saw everywhere when it first released and I’m still curious. Our main character has a sex toy business and it’s going well. Then she runs into an ex and they work together to try and save his family’s restaurant. This sounds like it’ll be fun!


It Had to Be You – Georgia Clark

I’ve read Island Time by this author and while I enjoyed it I remember thinking it focused on too much at once. Reading the synopsis of It Had to Be You makes me seem that it’s going to be the same for this book. So I think I’ll pass for now.



Removal Percentage: 50%
Current “to-read” shelf: 870

This week’s Down the TBR Hole was more of a success than previous posts! I was able to remove 50% of the books I talked about this week. What do you think of the decisions I made? Would you have decided differently for any of these? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
