Down the TBR Hole #120

I get to start off another Down the TBR Hole by saying that I read another book off of my want to read shelf. I need to keep this going!

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: 765 (my last post ended at 766. So one less book since last time.)

And They Were Roommates – Page Powars

And They Were Roommates is actually a book that’s not set to release until 2025. Besides that I love books that take place at boarding schools, the synopsis of this one sounds really good. I’m also really excited for Page’s first book, The Borrow a Boyfriend Club, that released in September.


Where You See Yourself – Claire Forrest

I love coming-of-age stories and Where You See Yourself sounds like one that I’ll absolutely love! I need to read this one soon.


The Prince & the Apocalypse – Kara McDowell

Another book that’s I’ve been wanting to read since it released, haha. I’ve read other books by this author and enjoyed reading them. We’ve also recently gotten a cover reveal for the next book in this series, Heir Apparently, and that makes me want to read this one even more.


Broken Trust – R.A. Smyth

Broken Trust is the first book on this week’s Down the TBR Hole that I actually don’t remember adding to my shelf. I want to say I added this one when I started reading why choose romances. That being said, this one still sounds good, but I also have so many others already on my Kindle waiting to be read. So for now, I’ll be taking this one off of my want to read shelf.


Seven Faceless Saints – M.K. Lobb

Seven Faceless Saints is one I’ve actually already started reading, but then got distracted by other books. I also recently got the eARC of the sequel releasing in a couple of weeks. If that’s not a sign that I need to continue with this one soon, I don’t know what is.


Scotsman in the Stacks – Alana Oxford

I’m someone who loves books about books or that have characters who love/work with books. The main character in Scotsman in the Stacks is a librarian. A lot of the reviews say this romance is adorable, but quite a few found themselves bored. I don’t own this one yet, so I think for now I’ll be taking it off of my want to read shelf.


Business or Pleasure – Rachel Lynn Solomon

Rachel Lynn Solomon is an autobuy author for me and I can say that I really loved Business or Pleasure. I definitely recommend this story. So as you can tell, this is a case of I have already read this book, but had a different edition saved to my want to read shelf.


Anastasia – Sophie Lark

Sophie Lark is an author I discovered last year and I’ve loved what I’ve read so far. Anastasia is an enemies to lovers romance retelling. I remember it being everywhere when it released in December 2022. Anastasia is quite a long book and I think that’s why I’ve been putting it off.


A Strange and Stubborn Endurance – Foz Meadows

A Strange and Stubborn Endurance is a fantasy book I’ve heard amazing things about. I know it has some darker subjects, but from what I’ve read the authors deals with them in a sensitive way. The companion/sequel to this one released late last year, so it’s time for me to get going on these books.


Bradford Bastard – Sheridan Anne

I have a couple of friends who love Sheridan Anne and I have to say that this book does catch my attention. Bradford Bastard is probably going to be one that’s over the top at times, but that can be a lot of fun.



Removal Percentage: 30%
Current “to-read” shelf: 762

We’re definitely starting to get near the end of my want to read shelf, because the releases are more recent.
