Down the TBR Hole #45

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 another round of TBR cleansing with a new Down the TBR Hole post! I’m happy to say that I’ve managed to keep my Want to Read shelf at the same number where I ended last time: 689 books. It’s still an unwieldy amount of books that I want to read, so it’s time to try and trim it down a bit more.

Wish me luck!

The Loop by Ben Oliver

I remember when this book came out. I thought the cover was awesome and promptly added it to my TBR without reading the synopsis. As one does. Having now read the synopsis it sounds like it has potential. Still taking it off, though. YA dystopian novels aren’t really my thing and it’s the beginning to a series. I don’t need to get myself into yet another series right now!

Verdict: Remove

The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

I recently read (and thoroughly enjoyed) a different Lucy Foley thriller. Now I’m eager to give her other ones a shot! I own The Guest List, so it automatically gets to stay on the TBR. I’m equally intrigued by this one, though. It has isolation. It has a group of ‘friends’. It has MURDER! Like, say less, I’m in. I’m hoping I enjoy this just as much as I liked The Paris Apartment.

Verdict: Keep

Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan

This is a YA romance that revolves around two different comic shops. It’s also loosely based on Romeo & Juliet, my least favorite Shakespeare play. All that combines into mild interest but not enough for me to keep it around. If this book dropped in my lap, would I read it? Yes! But it’s not something I’m eager enough to read to keep on the TBR.

Verdict: Remove

By the Book by Amanda Sellet

Alright. I have to admit to myself that this sounds cute as hell. The heroine in this YA romance writes a pamphlet composed of types of men to avoid that is entirely based on bookish tropes! And yet she is clearly gonna fall for the ‘bad boy’ in this story. I find I’m feeling very ‘meh’ about that fact, so I think I’ll give this one a pass.

Verdict: Remove

Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel

I’ve heard so many things about this thriller. It follows a young woman who was the victim of a mother that was purposely making her ill. Her mom is now out of jail and Rose Gold has decided to take her in. I assume this can only end in disaster. While the premise is interesting, this honestly doesn’t sound like a thriller I would enjoy.

Verdict: Remove

Starting total: 689
Removed: 4
End total: 685

Until next round, happy reading!
