Down the TBR Hole is a weekly meme hosted by Lia @Lost in a Story. These are the rules:
- Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
(I’m doing a softcore version of this, and some books will end up on my “maybe” shelf!)
TBR count after the last post: 499
Current TBR count: 504
(it’s not my fault that I keep finding amazing upcoming releases shut up)
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
This sounds cool and A LOT of my friends have given it 4 or 5 stars but the few ones who have given it 1 star make such great points that I just can’t bring myself to want to read it??
The Winter King by C.L. Wilson
I’m gonna be 100% honest at the time I’m writing this I’ve just drunk half a bottle of mead and I can’t bring myself to even read the synopsis but the cover alone looks way too heterosexual and literally none of my friends have read this
Smoke and Mirrors by Jess Haines
I don’t really know, none of my friends have read this either and that’s always the first thing I look at when deciding about these things… I just don’t want to invest my time in something none of my trusted people have read
Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton
I still have the ARC of this from last year and do you think I’ve read it? Well obviously not since it’s in this list and honestly I remember liking the first book but eh. I’ll get to it at some point.
Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
Since I own a full other series from the author I’m going to read that first and then if I’ve liked it read this, so I guess it’s safe to remove it and add it again if I should want more from this author
Sleeping Tom by E.V. Fairfall
I actually own the ebook of this! So I suppose at some point…? It sounded so awesome when I impulse-bought it, now it only sounds barely interesting tbh but since you can’t return ebooks maybe I’ll read it
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
This looks pretty average both from the description and the reviews and yeah I’m not interested anymore
Fantasy of Frost by Kelly St. Clare
I have absolutely no recollection of adding this to my TBR the synopsis sounds interesting actually and the average rating is pretty high but the few GR friends who’ve read it actually gave it a really low rating, so…
The Queen of All That Dies by Laura Thalassa
That cover is seriously pretty. Unfortunately, a lot of people say the writing is really bad, and I just can’t stand bad writing.
Radiance by Grace Draven
This sounds good in a guilty pleasure kind of way? People actually seem to like it and it sounds like a kinda different fantasy romance. On the other hand I don’t think I’ll be in the mood to read it for a while…
