Down the TBR Hole #111

This week I’m starting of my Down the TBR Hole with the same amount of books on my want to read shelf as last time.

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: 808 (my last post ended at 808. So that’s same amount as last time.)

Read Between the Lines – Rachel Lacey

I remember wanting to read this book just because the main characters are a bookstore owner and an author. As a lover of books, it can’t get better than that right?!? This enemies to lovers romance still sounds amazing, but I don’t own this book. So for now, I’ll be taking it off of my shelf.


The Color of Us – Jessica Park

Jessica Park wrote one of my favorite books (180 seconds) and oddly enough I haven’t read anything else by her. The Color of Us is a story that sounds like it’s going to be another emotional one, but also amazing. I have this one on my Kindle and I’d say it’s time to read this one soon.


The Ones We Burn – Rebecca Mix

The Ones We Burn is a book I actually don’t remember. No one I know has read this either and it seems there was some controversy surrounding this book? I’d say me not remember The Ones We Burn or owning it makes my decision easy. This one won’t be staying on my want to read shelf.


Katzenjammer – Francesca Zappia

I’ve read three books by Francesca Zappia and haven’t rated one lower than 4 stars. Eliza and Her Monsters being my favorite and one that I have re-read. To be honest I don’t think I really understand the synopsis. All I seem to get is that our main character is stuck in her high school. Katzenjammer does sound like a good Halloween read.


Circling Back to You – Julie Tieu

So I actually started reading this one when I put on the audiobook. For some reason I couldn’t really concentrate on it (sometimes I need to read a book physically) and I haven’t picked up my e-book yet. Circling Back to You is a workplace romance that sounds right up my alley.


There’s Something About Merry – Codi Hall

For some reason I have the audiobook on my want to read shelf. I think it’s because this actually was an Audible exclusive before getting a physical copy. A single dad Christmas romance? Yes, please! That being said I will end up reading this one either physically or the e-book, so for now it’ll be taken off of my shelf.


Lucky the Pizza Dog Infinity Comic #1 – Jason Loo

I save this one on my shelf after watching Hawkeye on Disney+. The dog definitely was my favorite character. This isn’t a long comic at all, but I wanted to save it to remind me to read it. I still haven’t read it, so this is my reminder for me to go on the boyfriend’s Marvel Unlimited and read this one! I know this comic is so short that I’m not going to log it on here, because I think it’s only a few pages, haha.


Demon in the Wood – Leigh Bardugo & Dani Pendergast

The Grishaverse is one of my favorite worlds to be in and I’m actually surprised I haven’t read Demon in the Wood yet. This graphic novel is about the Darkling. This prequel is definitely something I need to read.


Book Boyfriend – Kris Ripper

Another book that has a character doing something bookish. Our main character is a writer and works an an editorial assistant. He’s also in love with his best friend. Preston writes a story of the perfect version of himself, but will this backfire? I started the audiobook awhile ago, but the narrator didn’t work for me. This one I’ll definitely have to read physically.


The Night Shift – Alex Finlay

I’ve been reading more thrillers and The Night Shift is one that caught my eye. The Night Shift takes place on New Year’s Even 1999. Four girls are attacked at a Blockbuster and only one survives Fifteen years later this occurs again, but at an ice cream store. Again only one girl survives and says she heard the same final words as the girl in 1999. I have a feeling this is going to be a very interesting story.



Removal Percentage: 40%
Current “to-read” shelf: 804

So that’s my 111th Down the TBR Hole post. I ended up removing four out of ten books I talked about today. What do you think of my decisions? Would you have kept or removed anything I didn’t? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
