Down the TBR Hole #26

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!

Welcome to a new week for more bookish content! I thought today would be a good day for another round of Down the TBR Hole. Mostly because I’m trying to stay ahead of my obsessive need to add new books to my TBR shelf, haha. Case in point, in the time since I did my last round, I’ve gone from 734 books on my Goodreads Want to Read shelf to 738 books. Admittedly, 4 books isn’t that bad, but when you already have over 700 on the list… sigh…

There’s just so many incredible sounding books popping up on my radar and I can’t resist!

Let’s see if we can trim a little bit this round before I, inevitably, add more 😂

The World of Tomorrow by Brendan Mathews

I couldn’t remember adding this book and, after reading the synopsis, I think I must have done it while in an altered state. Because this book does not sounds appealing to me at all. Did I add as a possible book for a reading challenge? Was I trying to get more into historical fiction? Who knows, but it’s definitely not staying.

Verdict: Remove

Dear Martin by Nic Stone

In contrast, I remember adding this one to my TBR and I still really want to read it! I actually own a copy, as well, so it’s not leaving the TBR any time soon. This is one of those books where I know I’m going to have to prepare myself to be angry probably the entire time I’m reading. Still, I’ve heard nothing but great things and am excited to read it when I finally get around to the book.

Verdict: Keep

Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

Ahhh, yet another YA fantasy series that I thought sounded interesting, then never started. Honestly, at this point, though this sounds like this could be thrilling, I’m just not interesting in diving into yet another series. Perhaps when I’ve gotten through the multiple ones I’m currently reading, I’ll revisit this. For now, though, it’s time to part ways.

Verdict: Remove
