Down the TBR Hole #35

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!

I’m back with another round of TBR trimming! This is going to be a shortened one like last time because ya girl has been working for eight days straight and I am T I R E D. But we’re still gonna sift through five books and see if I want to keep them on the TBR or if they’ve gotta go. Also, I went from having 708 books on my Goodreads ‘Want to Shelf’ to 718 books… I honestly don’t know how that happened 😂

Alright, let’s get to trimming!

Furyborn by Claire Legrand

This is a start to yet another fantasy series that I shouldn’t be keeping… but the synopsis sounds so good! It follows two different people in two different timelines who are inextricably linked. I’ve heard so many good things about this book/series, as well. So here I am, keeping yet another series while I finish none, lol.

Verdict: Keep

The Warehouse by Rob Hart

So, if I hadn’t recently read The Paradox Hotel by the same author and thoroughly enjoyed it, this would probably be getting the chop. But I did so here we are! I really loved Rob Hart’s writing style and I’m interested to see what he does with the dystopian world in this one. Also, this one sounds deliciously sinister.

Verdict: Keep

Girl Gone Viral by Arvin Ahmadi

I’m fairly certain I added this book to my TBR because I loved the cover, haha. It’s just so bright! Having read the synopsis, it sounds like it could be an interesting sci-fi thriller. I just don’t think I’m ever going to actually pick it up. It’s one of those books that will probably always be on my periphery, but I think it has to go from the actual TBR.

Verdict: Remove

Verity by Colleen Hoover

I have to admit, this book is on my TBR purely because of curiosity. I’ve heard so many people rave (and rant) about this book. I’ve never read a Colleen Hoover book and it seems like she is everywhere. And the quotes I’ve heard from this certainly have me intrigued. I don’t know if I would actually enjoy this book… but I just need to know!

Verdict: Keep

Lirael by Garth Nix

Not me reading the first book in this series years ago and still having the second on my TBR 😅 Embarrassing! Especially since I truly enjoyed Sabriel. So this is going to stay on the TBR and I’m going to need y’all to bully me until I finally pick it up. At this point, I’m going to most definitely need to re-read the first book because I don’t remember the finer points.

Verdict: Keep

Starting total: 718
Removed: 1
End total: 717

Until next round, happy reading!
