Down the TBR Hole #129

I’m actually really happy and surprised to tell you since my last Down the TBR Hole that I’ve read 7 books that were on my want to read shelf on Goodreads. I don’t think I’ve ever read that many in between Down the TBR Hole posts.

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: 678 (my last post ended at 685. So that’s seven books less than at the end of the last post.)

Bitter of Tongue – Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

The Fiery Trial – Cassandra Clare & Maureen Johnson

Born to Endless Night – Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

Angels Twice Descending – Cassandra Clare

Happy Again – Jennifer E. Smith

Another Day – David Levithan

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – Jesse Andrews

The One – Kiera Cass

The Gift – Cecelia Ahern

Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List – Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

Another week and I’ve removed all ten books from my want to read shelf. I will be reading the other short stories from Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, but I never keep all of them on my want to read shelf. There are also a few other sequels on here, but I’m just not sure if I plan on picking them up. I’m really trying to be more picky about what I keep on this shelf.


Removal Percentage: 100%
Current “to-read” shelf: 668

I’m excited to see that I’m really making progress with my want to read shelf. Hopefully I can keep this up and try and get under 500 books before the end of 2024! Have you read any of these? Or would you have kept any? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
