Down the TBR Hole #21

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!

Time for the first Down the TBR Hole of the new year! Now, before I tell you the current state of my Want to Read shelf, I feel like I should give a disclaimer. I just went through all my owned TBR and scanned them into Goodreads. And more than I thought weren’t even on my Want to Read shelf, yet! So I ended my last round at 653 books and my shelf is currently sitting at… 723 books 😬

Look, this just means that this type of post is gonna be around for awhile, lol. It’s a good thing I enjoy writing! Hopefully you enjoy reading them, as well.

Alright, let’s kick off round 21!


Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley

I have no idea how this book ended up on my TBR, lol. It’s apparently a classic? It is a book about a magical bookseller, so it does hit one of my favorite tropes. It sounds like it could be a fun read and it’s quite short. All that adds up to this book getting to stick around.

Verdict: Keep


Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

This is a TBR veteran that has been around for a minute. It’s a desert fantasy that definitely sounds intriguing. There’s a young girl fighting t get out of her town, a mysterious stranger that maybe be able to help her, and ✨magic✨ Mix that all together and you get a story I definitely want to read.

Verdict: Keep


Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca

Imma be honest. I remember adding this book but I thought it was a historical fiction. Turns out it’s a true crime concerning a woman who upstaged the entire NYPD back in 1917 by solving an infamous cold case. Which sounds way more interesting! I’m glad I read the synopsis cause this one almost got dumped 😂

Verdict: Keep
