Down the TBR Hole #101

Since my last Down the TBR Hole post I’ve read two of the books on my want to read shelf. So I’m starting off better than I did with my last post. Hopefully I can keep this going. Reading books off my shelves in the house has been helping, haha.

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: 868 (my last post ended at 870. So that’s two books less than last time.)

Edie in Between – Laura Sibson

Down the TBR Hole posts are also good for bringing up books I haven’t thought about for awhile, but still want to read. Edie in Between is described as a modern day Practical Magic and that has me intrigued. Our main character is dealing with the loss of her mother and her mother’s journal takes her on a scavenger hunt.


Charming and the Cherry Blossom – LJ Evans

LJ Evans is one of my favorite authors and this is one of the few books by her that I haven’t read yet. Charming and the Cherry Blossom is the modern day fairytale I need to read soon.


The Kindred Spirits Supper Club – Amy E. Reichart

These posts remind of books I really want to read, but also contain books I honestly don’t remember adding to this shelf and The Kindred Spirits Supper Club is one of these books. This book sounds like something I would enjoy, but I have quite a few of these romances already and don’t own The Kindred Spirits of Supper Club, so for now I’ll take it off of my list.


The Passing Playbook – Isaac Fitzsimons

The Passing Playbook sounds like an amazing story that I would love, but it’s one I don’t own. I don’t see myself buying this one anytime soon, so for now it’ll also be taken off of my want to read shelf.


The Chance to Fly – Ali Stroker

Middle grade books are something I tend to really enjoy, because I love how the lessons they teach don’t even feel like lessons. Also, they’re just really cozy and The Chance to Fly sounds like one of these books. I have to be more strict with myself and my want to read shelf though. Again, I don’t own this one, so for now it’s not staying on my want to read shelf.


How to Be a Normal Person – TJ Klune

So far everything I’ve read by TJ Klune I’ve loved and How to Be a Normal Person sounds like a great read. Our main character knows he’s not normal, but wants to be normal for Casey, who he likes. We all know this is going to be quite the experience.


Out of Character – Annabeth Albert

So I really enjoyed Conventionally Yours and have been curious about the sequel. Ex-best-friends falling in love? That sounds interesting. I love books that have fandoms in them and that’s what caught my eye. I haven’t heard many people talk about Out of Character, but I’m intrigued.


Charm – Tracy Wolff

Out of all of the book so far I’m the most surprised I haven’t read Charm yet. After reading the first four books in this series I’ve been waiting to find out what happened when Grace was stone for four months and trapped with Hudson. I need to pick this one up really soon!


Black Water Sister – Zen Cho

I don’t remember much about the synopsis, but this cover still really catches my eye. Our main character has the ghost of her estranged grandmother in her mind. Her grandmother wants to settle a score and expects her granddaughter to do so. Black Water Sister sounds like quite the adventure.


The Forest of Stars – Heather Kassner

The Forest of Stars is another book that I don’t really remember. A powerful gust of wind stole our main character’s father she thinks she might find him at the Carnival Beneath the Stars. It sounds like an interesting middle grade, but I don’t see myself reading this anytime soon.



Removal Percentage: 40%
Current “to-read” shelf: 864

So as you can see I’m trying to be more decisive when it comes to what books stay on my shelf. If I don’t own them or really think I’ll be picking them up anytime soon I need to let them go. What did you think of my choices? Would you haven chosen differently? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
