Down the TBR Hole #103

Since my last Down the TBR Hole I read a book off my want to read list and I haven’t added any new ones. So my goal to make sure this want to read shelf shrinks has been going well.

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: 857 (my last post ended at 858. So that’s one book less than last time.)

Mom Jeans and Other Mistakes – Alexa Martin

Two women who have been best friends since third grade decide to move in together when they’re both single and broke. This probably seems a lot more simple than it actually is and Mom Jeans and Other Mistakes sounds like a fun read. So definitely keeping this one.


No Memes of Escape – Olivia Blacke

When I was just scrolling through my want to read shelf to find where I was for today’s post, I actually came across the first book in the A Brooklyn Murder Mystery series as well. I do own both books, but like I’ve said before I only keep the book I’m at in a series on my want to read list. So I will be reading this, but I’m taking it off of my shelf.


Donut Fall in Love – Jackie Lau

Okay, so I love this title and cover. An actor has been through a lot and needs some time off and a baker in a small time helps him do this. I have to say this is something I’ve seen in other books, but it’s a trope/story line that I love reading.


Madam – Phoebe Wynn

Madam is the first book this week that I don’t remember anything about. Reading the synopsis makes me remember why I would’ve added it to my list. The story takes place at a boarding school for girls that doesn’t seem to have been open for decades. Even though this sounds my type of story I don’t own this book, so for now it’s getting removed.


The Roughest Draft – Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka

So I recently read Do I Know You? by this author duo and enjoyed it. The Roughest Draft has been on my TBR for quite some time and after enjoying the other adult book by these two I really should get to it. I mean the main characters are an author duo that was very successful, but something seems to have driven them apart. Except they must come together to write one more book. I know this will be interesting!


The Audacity of Sara Grayson – Joani Elliott

I can’t imagine having to deal with the loss of your mother and then finding out that her last wish was for you to finish the final book in her best-selling series. Our main character is a greeting card writer and doesn’t think she’ll be able to do it. She takes it on though and there are people and secrets that work against here. The Audacity of Sara Grayson still sounds amazing and I want to read this soon.


The Guncle – Steven Rowley

What do you do when you lose your best friend suddenly and your brother (who was married to your best friend) isn’t capable to care for his own children? You become the Guncle that both of these kids need. The Guncle was such a heartwarming book and definitely emotional. I love how it talks about grief. So I read and loved this one, but it seems another edition is still on my want to read list.


You’re So Dead – Ash Parsons

A YA-thriller comedy? That’s not something you see very often. It seems there’s an influencer-only festival event that has gone very wrong. A killer lured these people to the island and our main characters who decided to sneak into this event and have to solve this mystery. I like the idea of this story, but I honestly forgot about You’re So Dead and don’t own a copy, so for now it’s getting taken off my list.


14 Ways to Die – Vincent Ralph

Our main character’s mother was murdered by the Magpie Man and she now has her own reality series on YouTube. She’s using this in the hopes of catching her mother’s killer and of course he’s watching. I have a feeling this is going to be a book I can’t put down!


Very Sincerely Yours – Kerry Winfrey

I’ve only read one book by Kerry Winfrey, but it was a fun read. Our main character writes a letter to a local children’s show host and after that they continue to exchange letters. I love when there are letters in books and we all know things will get complicated when their lives interact.



Removal Percentage: 40%
Current “to-read” shelf: 853

That’s my Down the TBR Hole for this week. I was able to remove four books from my want to read shelf. Have you read any of these? What book should I read first? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
