Down the TBR Hole #18

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!

Let’s get the cat out of the bag before we even get into this Down the TBR Hole post. When I was looking for a book to feature yesterday for Can’t Wait Wednesday, I may have gone on a little book adding spree. Which means my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads that was at 640 books the last time I did this is now sitting at… 657 books 😬 Look, there’s a lot of incredible sounding books coming out in 2022!

That being said, let’s get into this round to see if I can at least trim a few off my newly inflated TBR.

Sinful Cinderella by Anita Valle

I remember adding this book because I wanted to read it for a challenge. Clearly, that never happened 😂 Now that it’s been so long I can’t even remember what challenge I added this for, I think it’s time to part ways. It sounds mildly interesting… evil Cinderella and all that. But there’s not enough in the synopsis to convince me to let it stay.

Verdict: Remove

Something Missing by Matthew Dicks

First of all, I’m a child and fully giggled when I read the author’s name. This is who I am as a person. Second of all, this book sounds so interesting. It follows a thief who meticulously plans his crimes and, also, the lives of his victims. I’m definitely intrigued by the premise, so I guess it gets to stay!

Verdict: Keep

The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza

For a thriller/crime drama, the synopsis made this sound aggressively boring. It also doesn’t seem like this book is doing anything new within the genre. Not that all books have to do that, but nothing about this synopsis is appealing to me in the slightest. And I love thrillers! Ah well… can’t read ’em all anyways.

Verdict: Remove
