Down the TBR Hole #25

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!

Another round of Down the TBR Hole has arrived and I have a confession to make. I may or may not have gone on a Goodreads giveaway spree. I don’t know why I enter them as I’m about 95% sure no one actually wins Goodreads giveaways. I mean, I’ve won in the past but I swear the algorithm has come to hate me because I haven’t won in years!

Still, my entering spree is what I’m blaming for the fact that my TBR jumped from 728 books to 739 books 😬 There were so many good books that I could, potentially, win! Let’s see if I can trim some older books I’m less interested in to make up for it.


Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

We all know this is staying! Not only do I own the book, but I adored the first one in this duology, Strange the Dreamer. I don’t know what the disconnect is in my brain when I devour the first book in a series, immediately buy the second… and then never read it. Send help, please.

Verdict: Keep


The Collector by John Fowles

Complete side note, but this cover makes it seem like this book is written by someone named Vintage Fowles 😂 Anyways, this classic horror about a man who kidnaps an art student and keeps her in his basement sounds… kind of dull, if I’m being honest. Nothing about the synopsis captures my attention, so I think I’m gonna let this one go.

Verdict: Remove


Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple

I added this book because I really enjoyed Where’d You Go, Bernadette by the same author. Having read the synopsis again and a few reviews, though, I don’t think this book and I will get along. I’m not a huge contemporary reader, anyways, so realistically, this would be at the very bottom of books I would reach for if I needed something to read.

Verdict: Remove
