Down The TBR Hole | 10

Down The TBR Hole is a meme, hosted by Lost in a Story, about organizing your TBR on Goodreads by deciding which books you want to keep, and which books you want to delete.

I recently went through my list and got rid of a ton of YA books that no longer interest me. Now I mainly have romance books left but I doubt I still want to read all that remains. Wish me luck as I go through them all one by one.

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
  • Read the synopses of the books.
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

The Moth & the Flame (The Wrath & the Dawn, #0.25)

There are very few YA books that I’ll be keeping. This series is one of them that’s staying.

The Girl on the Train

I was pretty much told the entire “plot twist” surrounding this book. So now I really don’t even want to read it.

Verdict: GO

This just doesn’t interest me right now. I do love the cover for this one though!

Verdict: GO

The Mirror & the Maze (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1.5)

Here’s the other novella for this series. Keeping it to read!

Verdict: Stay

Sinner's Creed (Sinner's Creed MC, #1)

My friend told me she saw something about this series and now she doesn’t want to read it. It’s making me iffy about it. It does have “dark” as one of it’s genres on Goodreads. That’s not my cup of tea. This can go.

Verdict: GO

The Perfect Play (Play by Play, #1)

I tried to pick this up once before. It was all sexy times and very little story. I have issues when they don’t have any sort of plot to them. I do want to try it again but giving up on it though.

Verdict: Stay

Hope Flames (Hope, #1)

I have this thing about men with dogs on covers. To me it seems like that’s who the romance is between….don’t ask lol!!!! In all seriousness, I don’t think this is one I would like…feel free to convince me otherwise in the comments below.

Do or Die (Reluctant Heroes #1)

This is a mammoth of a book with 576 pages. I do enjoy this author’s writing and military romances so it’s staying.

Verdict: Stay

The Invasion of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #2)

Even though this is technically Young Adult, book one didn’t feel like a typical Young Adult book. What I mean is, it wasn’t in a high school setting like most YA books.

Verdict: Stay

Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)

OF COURSE I want to read the last book for this series. I do want to re-read the others first. I’m hoping I don’t get spoiled. I’m honestly surprised it hasn’t happened yet.

Verdict: Stay

The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn, #2)

This is another YA that doesn’t feel YA. I loved book one so much so I want to continue on with the duology. I can’t wait to see how it all wraps up.

I don’t do very well with flipping back and forth from the past to the present in my stories. I get so confused (I’m basic, what can I say?). I don’t think this interests me enough to keep.

Verdict: GO

Obsidian (Lux, #1)

I’m super torn with this one. The reviews are out of this world. It has a 4.21 overall rating on Goodreads. BUT is it something I would read and enjoy?! UGH!! I can’t decide…..I’m going to say no for now. BUT, feel free to change my mind in the comments below!!!

Verdict: GO

Sweet Evil (Sweet, #1)

I’m just not interested in this one anymore. Sorry!

Verdict: GO

Garnet's Story (The Lone City #1.25)

Here’s the deal, I loved this series. I have yet to read book 3 and by now, I’ve forgotten everything that happened in the first 2 books. Do I want to invest the time to go back and re-read them or do I just want to move on to other books? I think it’s time to move on crouton.
