Another start of a Down the TBR Hole without adding any new books to my want to read shelf. I even managed to read a book off of that shelf in the last two weeks!
Down the TBR Hole was originally created over at Lost in a Story. This meme is now being hosted by Jody from I’m Into Books. 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: 813 (
my last post ended at 814. So that’s one book less than last time.)
The Romance Agenda – Claire Kann
The Romance Agenda sounds like a book right up my alley. That being said, I’ve read a few reviews saying our main character is mostly trying to deal with her feelings for her best friend and not liking his girlfriend. While I completely understand having to come to terms with that, I’m wondering if it’s not going to annoy me after awhile. So for now, I’m going to take it off of my want to read shelf.
The Society For Soulless Girls – Laura Steven
Laura Steven is the author of one of my favorite books (The Exact Opposite of Okay) and I will read anything she writes. The Society For Soulless Girls also sounds like the perfect autumn read. A YA thriller with a paranormal twist? Yes, please!
The Bromance Zone – Lauren Blakely
Lauren Blakely writes fun romantic comedies and The Bromance Zone sounds like a fun one. Friends to lovers and it seems like forced proximity? I may have to get the audiobook for this one, because Lauren Blakely always has amazing narrators for her books.
Total Creative Control – Joanna Chambers & Sally Malcom
Total Creative Control is the first book this week that I honestly don’t remember at all. Okay, I definitely added this one to my list, because our main character is a fan fic writer and gets a job with the creator of a popular TV show. I understand why I added this one, but seeing how I didn’t remember it and don’t own this one, I’m taking it off of my want to read shelf.
The Fastest Way to Fall – Denise Williams
As I was typing the title in this blog post, I realized I actually started reading The Fastest Way to Fall and I was enjoying it. This is another case of me reading something and getting distracted by other books. I definitely need to get back to this one. Our main characters also text in the app for personal training and I love that aspect in a book.
Addicted to You – Krista Ritchie & Becca Ritchie
This is a series I keep hearing about on Booktube and I have to say I’m curious. Addicted to You is actually a book I started reading a few days ago, but clearly haven’t changed to currently reading. So that will be the first thing I do after writing this post. I’ve heard a lot of people say this isn’t necessarily a romance and I’m not sure what to expect. There are over 10 books in this series/world, so I’m hoping I love it.
Remove (Changed to currently reading)
Something Fabulous – Alexis Hall
Historical Romance isn’t normally a go to genre for me, but I love Alexis Hall’s writing. Something Fabulous actually sounds like a lot of fun. This could be a fun autumn read.
A Lady’s Guide to Etiquette and Murder – Dianne Freeman
To be honest the title alone is why I added this to my want to read shelf. This is a historical murdery mystery. I definitely want to give A Lady’s Guide to Etiquette and Murder a chance.
The Bodyguard – Katherine Center
While I really wish Goodreads wouldn’t keep different versions of a book not marked the same. I mean I read one version, so this title should just say read. The Bodyguard was such a fun book and I read it in just about one sitting. Katherine Center gave us fun characters and romance. I need to read more by this author.
Love Flushed – Evie Mitchell
So the first book in the All Access series was actually one that appeared in my last Down the TBR Hole post. Love Flushed is the second book that also sounds really good. It’s interesting that one of the main characters sells toilet paper for a living. As I’ve said before I don’t keep sequels on my shelf if I haven’t read the previous book, so for now I’m taking Love Flushed off of my shelf.
Removal Percentage: 50%
Current “to-read” shelf: 808
I can’t believe this is the 110th Down the TBR Hole post! I removed half of the books from my shelf this week, so I’m still making good progress. Have you read any of these books? Would you have made a different choice about any of the books this week? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
