Down the TBR Hole #31

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!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Down the TBR Hole post, so I figured it was time to continue with my TBR trimming! I ended the last round with 715 books on my Want to Read shelf.

Verdict: Keep


The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Verdict: Keep


The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

Oh, Brando Sando… I love your writing but you have SO MANY BOOKS! That being said, I still really want to start The Stormlight Archives series. Of course, this is a thicc boi and it’s just the first in a proposed ten book series, so I should probably get to it sooner rather than later 👀
