Down the TBR Hole #14

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!

I’m on round fourteen of Down the TBR Hole and there’s not much of a dent to the Want to Read shelf, if I’m being honest. There’s just so many books out there to tempt a person, ya know? I ended the last round with 653 books on the shelf. Where am I at now? 655 books… which, honestly, is not too bad! I just know it’s about to blow up as we get closer and closer to 2022, so only two books added, for now, is not terrible 😂

Now, let’s see if I can trim that down even more.

The Winds of Winter by George R.R. Martin

Hahahaha… oh. This book. I mean, if it every actually comes out, I will be the first to pounce on it. Of course it gets to stay. But, at the same time, I’m beginning to lose hope that this will ever see the light of day. Fingers crossed, though! I loved all the other books in the series (some more than others) and I really would like to see the end. Probably because I’m hoping and praying it’s different from how the HBO series ended…

Verdict: Keep

End of Watch by Stephen King

I own this book, so it automatically gets to stick around. But, more than that, I’ve already read the first two books in this series and I am invested. Don’t ask my why it’s taken me so long to get to this one… I really enjoyed the other two and this one is promising to be a tad creepier. I’ll get to it eventually, though!

Verdict: Keep

The Fireman by Joe Hill

This is one of a few books by this author on my Want to Read shelf. I will fully admit that I originally added them based solely on the fact that Joe Hill is one of Stephen King’s sons. But there’s another Joe Hill book I want to read more. Until I’ve read his writing and decided whether he’s for me or not, I think I’ll whittle it down to just that one. And this ain’t it.

Verdict: Remove
