Down the TBR Hole #42

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!

Happy Thursday, y’all. To celebrate the almost-end of the work week, I’m gonna do another round of Down the TBR Hole! I’m pretty impressed with the fact that I’ve managed to decrease my TBR instead of increasing it 😂 I went from 698 books on my ‘Want to Read’ shelf down to 697 books. I mean… it’s only one book, but I’m counting it as a win.

Now it’s time to continue the trimming!

Verdict: Remove

Verdict: Keep
