Down the TBR Hole #2

Down the TBR Hole

Down the TBR Hole was created by Lia @ Lost in a Story with a goal of trying to reduce the size of your Goodreads TBR. Each time (aka each blog post) you:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Sort it by ascended date added
  • Pick the first 5 (or 10) books
  • Read the synopses of these books
  • Decide if you want to keep the books on your TBR or if they should go

It’s up to you how often you participate in this meme. Personally, I try (emphasis on the word “try”) to take part once a week. If you need more information on Down the TBR Hole, click here to go to Lia’s blog post.

The Books:

1. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

The Final Empire

I’ve heard really great things about this series and I own the beautiful UK copies of the whole trilogy so I really don’t know why I haven’t gotten around to it yet. Hopefully I will sometime soon(ish).

Verdict: Staying

2. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

Ruby Red

This is another case of owning the whole series yet still not starting it. I’m not sure when I’ll get around to this series but I’m still interested in it!

Verdict: Staying

3. The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

The Winner's Crime

I read the first book in this series, The Winner’s Curse, awhile ago (I think maybe in 2015) and I didn’t absolutely love it like everyone else seems to. I did like it though and I’m interested in rereading it and then continuing on with The Winner’s Crime!

Verdict: Staying

4. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

Poison Study

I can’t believe I haven’t read this book yet! I’ve heard so many good things about this book so I really need to get to it soon!

Verdict: Staying

5. Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi


I haven’t read anything else by Tahereh Mafi except her Shatter Me series which I really loved! I really want to read another book by her so this book is definitely staying on my TBR.

Verdict: Staying

6. A Million Worlds with You by Claudia Gray

A Million Worlds with You

I’m most definitely keeping this on my TBR – I have to see how this series ends! I really liked the other two books so I’m hoping I’ll like this one too!

Verdict: Staying

7. Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Ink and Bone

I once tried reading this book for the Try a Chapter Tag earlier this year and was only able to read 10 pages. It just wasn’t interesting me at the time and I’m not sure if it will in the future. However, I’m going to leave it on my TBR for now.

Verdict: Staying… for now

8. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

The Knife of Never Letting Go 4

This is another book that I’ve heard great things about but just haven’t gotten around to yet. I loved Patrick Ness’s other books More Than This and A Monster Calls and I’m looking forward to reading another book by him!

Verdict: Staying

9. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

The Orphan Queen

I’ve read one book that this author co-wrote, My Lady Jane, and I absolutely loved it! I’m interested in checking out another book by this author.

Verdict: Staying

10. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys

I own the whole Raven Cycle series and so many people have told me how great this series is but I don’t know if I’m still interested in reading it. I guess I’ll leave it on my TBR for now but it’s not at the top of my list.

Verdict: Staying… for now

Well… I didn’t remove a single book from my TBR in this week’s post. Oops! Maybe I’ll do better in the next post. Do you participate in Down the TBR Hole? Let me know in the comments below and leave a link to your post for this week if you’d like!
