Down the TBR Hole #2

Happy Monday!!! I cannot believe we are almost halfway through August! Where has the time gone?

It has been a hectic few weeks and we have not posted anything in awhile and we are so sorry! I am trying to get myself back together and thought what a better way to do that than by tackling my Goodreads TBR!

Down the TBR Hole is a weekly meme hosted by @Lost in a Story that tries to help tackle our out of control TBR shelves on Goodreads. Here is how it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order on ascending date added
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: Keep it or Should it Go

You Can Stay, For Now

  • The Night Circus has been on my TBR for quite some time and I keep meaning to read it and just haven’t found the right time yet. However, it will definitely stay on my list since I absolutely adored The Starless Sea. I really love Morgenstern’s writing and look forward to diving into this one.
  • Ash Princess is a series I have really been wanting to read, as I have heard a lot of rave reviews on it. It has been on my Amazon wishlist for awhile and I might just have to bite the bullet and get it myself!
  • Sorcery of Thorns is a book that I vow to read by the end of the year. I have really been looking forward to reading it, but as is the case for us all, too many books, not enough time.
  • Aurora Rising is definitely a book I will be reading. I have read Illuminae by Kaufman and Kristoff and I truly love how they tell a story.

So Long, Farewell

  • Slumber: This must have been added during a time where I was just clicking all the books and adding them to my Goodreads shelf. I don’t ever remember reading the synopsis and I will never get around to reading it, so goodbye!
  • Unravel Me: I read the first book in this series and absolutely loved it. However, I straight up DNF’d this book because I honestly could not take anymore of it. I have no desire to pick it back up or finish the series at all.
  • Then I Met You: I love a good romcom, and from what I gather that is what this book is, but I honestly don’t have it in me to go out and find it.

Final thoughts

So after Round 2 of Down the TBR Hole, I have managed to get rid of quite a few books. Since two out of the three books that I decided to delete from my list were actually a part of a series, I think this was a success! 🙂

Have you read any of the books I have listed? Do you think I should skip ones I decided to keep or read some of the ones I said farewell to?

Current Goodreads TBR Tally:

Down the TBR Hole is a weekly meme hosted by @Lost in a Story that tries to help control our out of control TBR shelves on Goodreads. Here is how this works:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order on ascending date added
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: Keep it or Should it Go

You Can Stay FOr Now:

  • The Woman in the Window is a book that I have seen all over the place and have heard great things about. I also enjoy physiological thrillers and really want to watch the movie, so I really need to get on with reading this book
  • One of Us Is Lying is another book that I have seen all over Bookstagram and Facebook groups and it has such an intriguing synopsis.
  • To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a book/series that I WILL read… some day…. I promise!
  • Eleanor & Park I am a lover of all things Rainbow Rowell, so I find it a bit crazy that I haven’t read this book yet. Also, Thi keeps telling me I need to read it!

So Long, Farewell

  • Matched is a series I put on my TBR shelf a long time ago and even found a paperback set for a really good price. However, I have never really felt the urge to pick this series up and it was just collecting dust.
  • Angelfall is another series I added to my TBR thinking I would try it out one day. However, I have way too many series on my to read list that I just don’t see myself getting to this one anytime soon.
  • Dark Places looks to be an interesting and quick thriller, I just don’t have much of a desire to read it.
  • Bloodleaf is ANOTHER series that was added when I thought I would get to. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking adding this many series to my TBR (facepalm)

Final Thoughts

Welp, for it being my first time doing Down the TBR Hole, I am actually proud that I purged my shelf of 4/8 books. I have a long way to go, as I am adding new books to the shelf DAILY. Have you read any of these books on my list?
