Down the TBR hole #6

down the TBR hole

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: 495

Current TBR count: 505

No I do not know how I ended up adding 10 more books in the span of only one week leave me alone.

Like seriously imagine if I wasn’t actively removing books from my TBR what a much bigger mess this would be??

The Griever’s Mark by Katherine Hurley

Ummm this has some sort of slavery theme and none of my friends have read it and I honestly don’t trust slave theme in the hands of most people so this is a hard pass

Special Forces – Soldiers by Aleksandr Voinov

This was free on the author’s website so I actually own it but honestly none of my GR friends have read it and the huge amount of p*rn images used in the first GR community reviews has put me off it*

REMOVE

Hereditary by Jane Washington

I will say this cover is so pretty WTF but apparently it’s about fae or something and I don’t really care about faes anymore unless they’re written by Holly Black so

WOW that was a slaughter, 9/10 books removed?? This feels nice.

FINAL TBR COUNT: 496

Have you read any of these? Do you agree with my decisions to keep/remove them from my TBR?
