Sunday Funday | Down the TBR Hole #2

Happy Sunday, bloggers. Today I’m here with my second Down the TBR Hole post, picking up where I left off, because I am desperate to clean up my want-to-read shelf on goodreads.

There were a few from last time that I decided to keep and since my feelings on those particular books have not changed, I’m going to bend the rules a bit and not include them in today’s post. If you would like to read about which exact books those are, check out my previous Down the TBR Hole Post. Of course, if I change my mind later, they will definitely be featured.

Credits go to Lia of Lost In A Story for this awesome meme idea and her official rules.

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

So here are the next six (my favorite number) to share with you on my TBR…

1885

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

I’m just not a classics kind of reader, in general. But I added this one to my TBR because many fellow readers assured me I would like this since I’m a romantic. I tried reading this one sometime last year and actually  fell asleep. I haven’t truly fallen asleep while reading since I was an undergraduate student. Sorry Mr. Darcy, but this one’s officially going down.

Captive Prince by S.U. Pacat

I truly added this one to my TBR without thinking because I felt like there was a surge of excitement over this one sometime in 2016-2017. When I read the synopsis, I was intrigued that it was an MM Romance, which I don’t read at all but wouldn’t mind trying out. Much like its titular Prince, I’m held captive, so, for now, it stays.

Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

Pretty sure this was a cover-add. But looking at it now, I can tell it’s dated. It was published back in 2011 and if you’ve been following me, you may know that if it’s a few years old I immediately start losing interest. #SorryNotSorry, but there are way too many paranormal/fantasy books waiting for me. This one is going down.

Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen

This one came out in 2014 and like the last book I mentioned, I’m really tempted to drop this one. But I think…I’m going to let it stay this round.

The Deal by Elle Kennedy

I am not even the slightest bit surprised that this is on my TBR. Sexy cover? Sports and romance? You know my motto, I’m “trash for trash.” This is a kindle buy and I’m surprised I haven’t gotten it yet. I think I’m going to get on that right this second since my “night-time kindle read” on my currently reading list is vacant. Hooray! It stays!

The Shadowhunters’ Codex by Cassandra Clare & Joshua Lewis

So here’s the thing–I own this book. I bought it when I saw it on sale at BookOutlet just for the heck of it. I love the Shadowhunter Chronicles, so I figured this would be a cool addition. It’s basically a manual for being a shadowhunter and I tried reading it once…unsuccessfully. Oh well, it sure is handy for bookstagram photos. But since we’re cleaning house, this one will be taken down.

 

Results:

  • 3 books down today
  • Current Goodreads TBR count: 471

My goodness, I am laughing because last time, I was at 468 for my TBR…and yet it’s higher this time! Clearly there were some books I couldn’t resist adding since last week.

So what do you think? Also, how’s your TBR list looking? Are you constantly adding books like I am?

  1. I realllllly need to go and do a Goodreads clean up, I have over 1000 books on my “want to read” shelf :/ I don’t think that I’ve cleaned it up since I joined goodreads like seven years ago. I basically use my to read shelf as a place to put ANY book that I find interesting or intriguing, even if I know the likelihood of me actually picking it up is slim
