books, down the tbr hole

Down The TBR Hole #1


Down The TBR Hole was created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. I have seen so many people doing these so I decided to give it a try.


“Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!”

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre 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?

Dark Flame by Alyson Noel

Apparently I haven’t continued this since 2014 when I added this in my TBR. I even have had it in my bookshelf since forever but I just haven’t felt like reading it!  I mean I loved the first book, which I gave away like four years ago but I got a little bored about the whole “We love each other but we can’t even kiss each other”. But I still want to finish this series someday.

This one: stays!

Naked Dragon by Annette Blair

I’m not really feeling this one. I love paranormal romance but I think I’ve had enough of dragons at the moment and the ratings aren’t tempting me to read it either.

This one: goes!

A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas

This is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I loved the Lunar Chronicles retellings but– no. This one doesn’t sound like one I’d enjoy that much.

This one: goes!

Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

I love Kresley Cole books, so I really want to read this. I actually would’ve bought this already if the prettier cover wasn’t out of stock. I need to either wait out if the site I order books from can get it back to stock or just buy the uglier cover.

This one: stays!

The Darkest Passion by Gena Showalter

I definitely want to read this! This is the 5th book of Lords Of The Underworld series. I really enjoyed that series back in… 2015 I think?

This one: stays!

Haunting Blackie by Laurann Dohner

I have a weakness for aliens and cyborgs. This is another series I loved few years back and want to continue. Don’t ask me why I haven’t read this series in order. Maybe because some of the later books were cheaper.

This one: stays!

For The Love Of A God by Rosanna Leo

As much as I like the synopsis I don’t think I’ll ever read this. I have only found it in eBook and I’m not interested in buying eBooks.

This one: goes!

Warrior by Angela Knight

I love books with time travel but synopsis just doesn’t tempt me anymore…?

This one: goes!

Hunter’s Moon by Bernadette Gardner

I was torn about this. On other hand aliens and romance! But on other hand the synopsis sounded so much the same than in other books. It’s just so short that it will be like 95% sex again.

This one: goes!

Queen Of Swords by Katee Robert

Wow another alien book! See how much I loved alien books back in 2015? I still like them but I was totally obsessed over them. I like the synopsis. It sounds different than all the other ones.

This one: stays!
