Down the TBR Hole #114

Once again I can proudly say I haven’t added any books to my want to read shelf and even read one off of this shelf since my last Down the TBR Hole post.

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: 793 (my last post ended at 794. So that’s one less book than last time.)

Text for You – Sofie Cramer

So we’re starting off Down the TBR Hole post with a book I don’t remember adding to my want to read shelf. I’m a big fan of books with text messages and people connecting by accidentally texting someone. I don’t own Text for You and after seeing all the reviews, I don’t see myself trying to pick this one up.


Lease On Love – Fallon Ballard

I enjoyed Just My Type by this author, so I’m hoping I love Lease On Love as well. There’s a mix up between a dating app and a roommate app. I have a feeling this is going to be a lot of fun. It seems these two characters are going to be just what the other needs.


The American Roommate Experiment – Elena Armas

The Spanish Love Deception was a very hyped book and while I enjoyed it, I have to say it wasn’t my favorite. Rosie was a character that we met in that book and I’m curious about her own story. Mostly because she has a secret career as a romance author.


Not the Witch You Wed – April Asher

The first book this post that I have read the book! Not the Witch You Wed is a book that has one of my favorite tropes: fake dating! This was a fun witchy read and I definitely recommend it.


Never Ever Getting Back Together – Sophie Gonzales

I have an eARC and paperback copy of Never Ever Getting Back Together, so I think it’s safe to say I really need to sit down and read this one. Two girls go on a reality show with their now famous ex-boyfriend. One wants him back and the other wants revenge. I’m guessing no one was expecting them to fall in love with each other. Never Ever Getting Back Together sounds right up my alley.


Time of Our Lives – Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka

I’ve enjoyed a few books by this author duo and want to read the rest of their backlist. It seems all of them are standalones which makes it pretty easy. Time of Our Lives does sound like an emotional one though. One of the main character’s mother has early-onset Alzheimer’s. I’ll have tissues ready when I read!


The Accidental Pinup – Danielle Jackson

The Accidental Pinup is one I’m surprised I haven’t read yet. Rival photographers have to work together for a body-positive lingerie campaign. Things go wrong and our plus-sized main character ends up having to stand in front of the camera herself. I’m intrigued!


Girl, 11 – Amy Suiter Clarke

Books that have characters with their own podcasts, etc. always really interest me. Girl, 11 still sounds really good. I don’t own this book and while it still sounds intriguing, I’m not sure if I’ll get around to it anytime soon.


Built to Last – Erin Hahn

Two childhood stars get a second chance romance and I’m here for it! Add in a renovation TV show and I’m intrigued. I love stories like this and I have an eARC that I really should’ve read by now.


Reader, I Murdered Him – Betsy Cornwell

In all honesty, the title of the book is what drew me in, haha. We have a teenage vigilante that uses her power and privilege to punish her friends’ abusive suitors. Reader, I Murdered Him is one that sounds perfect for a rainy winter day.



Removal Percentage: 30%
Current “to-read” shelf: 790

So this is another Down the TBR Hole post done. I managed to remove another three 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.

One thought on “Down the TBR Hole #114
