Down the TBR Hole #6

Down the TBR Hole

Down The TBR Hole is a meme set up by Lia at LostInAStory & involves deciding whether to keep or remove certain books from your TBR list. The meme works by going to your GoodReads to-read shelf, selecting “ascending” on date added, taking the first 5 (or how many you would like) books, reading their synopsis & then deciding whether to keep them on your TBR or to get rid of them. I’ll be doing this meme using my to-buy list, as my to-read list only includes books that I already own; after my fifth attempt at Down The TBR Hole I had 296 books on my to-buy list, I now have 330 – but in my defense; it’s been over a month since I did one of these posts so…

I’m removing Soundless from my to-buy list as I’ve read some really awful reviews about it… which sucks because the cover is beautiful.

Down the TBR Hole synopsis

I initially wanted to give this book a go because I loved Under Winter Lights by Bree M Lewandowski, another ballet themed romance, but I think I’ll remove this book now because I’m not that interested in giving it a go anymore – sorry Katherine.

Down the TBR Hole synopsis

It’s an absolute crime that I’ve not yet read Nasty Women – this book cooked up such a storm on social media & is supposed to be phenomenal so I’m absolutely keeping it.

The reviews for this book are mixed, but the people I follow on GoodReads have posted positive reviews so I think I’ll keep Library of Fates – plus, it’s a standalone & I’m all for standalone books right now.

Nothing about this synopsis really excites me so I’m going to remove Mask of Shadows from my to-buy list.

A mystical, evil wood? I’m sure I’ve read this book before… remove.

I’m keeping Smut because honestly, I want more smutty books in my life.

This Peter Pan “retelling” sounds brilliant so I’m definitely keeping it.

This book appeals to me as much as it did the first time I read the synopsis so I’m definitely keeping I Am Apache.

If you know me you’ll know I’m keeping Geisha of Gion.

🐺

So today I’ve removed 4 books, & kept 6 – taking my to-buy list from 330 to 326 books; I’m going to try to do the next Down the TBR clear out within the next two weeks so that I don’t allow the number of books on my to-buy list to get as bad as I did between this post & the last… wish me luck!
