Down the TBR Hole #13

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.


Hello, reader!

Today, I’m doing another round of Down the TBR Hole! At the end of round twelve, my Goodreads Want to Read shelf had been (re)narrowed down to 654 books. Where am I standing currently? 655 books. Only one added! It’s some kind of miracle 😂

I think we’re diving into the part of my Goodreads TBR that I genuinely remember adding all the books I’m coming across. Which makes me wonder if the amount I remove is gonna start dropping. After all, if I remember adding the book, it’s probably because I added it for a good reason, right? Of course, I’m sure there will be some that I’m just no longer interested in after adding them years ago. We shall see!

Now, let’s get into round thirteen.


Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev

Though I remember adding this book, I certainly didn’t remember the synopsis! Upon reading, however, I know this one will be staying. A book about characters from all the plays acted on stage that are bound to a magical theater? And it more than likely has various references to the works of Shakespeare? Sign me up! This sounds absolutely magical.

Verdict: Keep


Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey

This is one of those books that I was interested in at one point, but the interest has waned. It sounds like it could be epic, featuring an courtesan assassin who discovers a plot that could change her entire world. But I’m really not looking to start yet another series and this book is… not small. She thicc. So, I might pick this up at some point in the distant future, but, for now…

Verdict: Remove


Around the World in Eighty Days with Michael Palin by Michael Palin

I love travel books.

And I love Michael Palin.

‘nough said!

Verdict: Keep
