Down the TBR Hole #5

Hello, reader!

It’s time for a new round of Down the TBR Hole! This is where I go through my Goodreads ‘Want to Read’ shelf and do a bit of cleaning up. If you want to see the full description of what this post is all about, check out my first round HERE.

Last round, I ended up with 609 books left on my Want to Read shelf. Before we talk about how many books are currently on my shelf, I should mention that just got my 2021 Always Fully Booked reading planner (made by Little Inkling Designs). Why is that relevant? Well, each month has a page where you can write down books releasing that month. So I went through and wrote down my most anticipated reads for each month (so far) and, in the process, found a few more.

Which is why there are now 623 books on my Want to Read shelf 😬 The endless struggle of a booklover, eh? Let’s see if we can trim that down a tad this round!


The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Honestly, I don’t even need to re-read the synopsis for this one to know my verdict. I’ve had a desire to read this book since stumbling across in a Barnes & Nobel ages ago. The cover drew me in, but the premise of a King Arthur retelling told through the eyes of the women involved captured my imagination. I don’t know why I still haven’t picked this one up, but it’s one I want to get to eventually.

Verdict: Keep

Ever After: A Cinderella Story by Wendy Loggia

This book is based off the movie of the same name. I put this book on my TBR because I absolutely adore that movie. Honestly, it’s one of my favs! The thing is, I’m not sure I need to read the novelization of the screenplay. I don’t tend to enjoy that, to be quite frank. The movie is great on it’s own… I don’t really feel the urge to read the book, as well. I’m sure it’s good, but I think this one will be a pass.

Verdict: Remove
