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.
I hope y’all had a great Tuesday. It’s almost 8:30 pm here in Massachusetts and I just got home from work. So, to wind down, I figured why not do a Down the TBR Hole post? I’ve got a posting streak going on and I don’t want to break it! Also, I’ve been, err, acquiring books on the TBR recently. Not a lot! I’m still at around 700 books on my ‘Want to Read’ shelf (701 books, to be exact), but I know I’m going to be adding more and more as 2023 releases get announced.
That said, let’s get to trimming!
Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson
I’ve wanted to read a Swanson mystery for awhile and this one is at the top of my list. But I’ve heard it also contains spoilers for some mysteries that I haven’t read yet. I definitely still want to read this, though, as it centers around books. So I guess it gets to stick around for now. Unless I read another Peter Swanson and find I don’t enjoy his writing 🤷🏾♀️
Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison
Hahaha, I don’t even remember adding this book to my ‘Want to Read’ shelf. Which happens more frequently than it should. According to the synopsis, this is a thriller set at a boarding school. There’s lies and popular kids and it sounds… kind of dull. I have so many thrillers on my TBR that I don’t have room for ones that don’t get me excited when I read the synopsis. So this one has to go.
The Other People by C.J. Tudor
I’ve read another book by C.J. Tudor (The Chalk Man) and rather enjoyed it. It was haunting and fast-paced and I didn’t see the twist coming… all signs of a great thriller! That makes me want to read this book even more. The synopsis sounds like it’ll be another read filled with dread and I can’t wait to give it a go. Eventually… Y’all know how I am!
The Severed Moon by Leigh Bardugo
Here’s another book that I don’t even remember adding, haha. And this one isn’t even a book! Look, I love a nice journal as much as the next book lover, but I have so many. Even if this one has prompts and quotes from Leigh Bardugo. My bookshelves are already cluttered enough as it is 😅
As the Shadow Rises by Katy Rose Pool
This is the sequel to a book I haven’t even read yet 😂 I own There Will Come a Darkness and I do want to read it. It just keeps getting pushed further and further back on my TBR. I will read it one day, hopefully soon, because it sounds like a fantasy novel I would love. There’s a group of misfits fighting for their lives and the world! There’s a prophecy! Until I read the first book, though… this one has ta go.
Starting total: 701
End total: 698
Until next round, happy reading!
