Down the TBR Hole #106

Without realizing it my want to read shelf has decreased my another two books since my last Down the TBR Hole. Maybe this year will continue to be a success!

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: 836 (my last post ended at 838. So that’s two books less than last time.)

You Should Have Seen This Coming – Shani Michelle

I’ve really been enjoying thrillers lately and You Should Have Seen This Coming sounds really good. This released in April 2022 and I’ve honestly haven’t seen anyone talk about this. Seeing how I don’t own You Should Have Seen This Coming I’ll be removing it from my shelf for now.


Good Girls Die First – Kathryn Foxfield

Good Girls Die First is another thriller with a bit of a magical twist. The first sentence of the synopsis had my attention: “Mind games. Murder. Mayhem. How far would you go to survive the night?” I want to say I got this one for Christmas last year or the year before. I’ll be keeping this around to hopefully read on a stormy day sometime soon.


The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker – Lauren James

While The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker isn’t something I usually read, I have to say I’m very intrigued. Our main character has an accident and passes away. After that she discovers a group of ghosts who are happy for a new friend after many years. I have a feeling things are going to get messy.


Nick and Noel’s Christmas Playlist – Codi Hall

For some reason I have the audiobook and the paperback on my want to read shelf. How this happened, I have no clue. A Christmas tree farm and friends to lovers are two elements I love in my holiday romances. I will be reading this, but I’ll be taking the audiobook version off of my shelf.


The New Girl – Jesse Q. Sutanto

The New Girl is another book that’s a case of I’ve read this already, but have a different edition on my want to read list. It would really help if Goodreads would notice this when you read a book, haha. Unfortunately, this one was a bit of a disappointment. The book started off really strong, but after awhile it was more about drama than the murder mystery.


Book of Night – Holly Black

So I actually own the Illumicrate edition of this book and I’ve been on the fence about reading it. There have been a lot of mixed reviews, but after reading the synopsis again I have to say I’m intrigued. I love the idea of the gift of casting shadows to influence things and people.


Lord of Eternal Night – Ben Alderson

Lord of the Eternal Night is the first book that I actually don’t remember adding to my shelf. While I love vampire romances I’m not sure this one is for me after reading the synopsis again.


The Charm Offensive – Alison Cochrun

I’ve been curious about The Charm Offensive for awhile and even more so after reading this author’s other book, Kiss Her Once for Me. This takes place on the set of a bachelor like dating show and that has me wanting to pick it up the most. I have tried the audiobook for this one, but it wasn’t working for me. The paperback was one I found under the Christmas tree last year, so it’s time to give it a read.


Hotel Magnifique – Emily J. Taylor

Hotel Magnifique is one I have on my shelf and I’ve heard amazing things about it. I love the idea of a magical place that is somewhere new every morning. It sounds like this will be quite the adventure.


Tryst Six Venom – Penelope Douglas

Tryst Six Venom is a book I’m still not sure about. While I don’t mind bully romances at times I’ve seen some mixed reviews about this one. I don’t have a copy of this one at the moment, so for now I think I’m taking it off my shelf.



Removal Percentage: 50%
Current “to-read” shelf: 831

That’s another Down the TBR Hole! What do you think of my choices? Would you have chosen differently? Or have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
