Down the TBR Hole #4

Hello readers! We are here again with another Down the TBR Hole. I am feeling much better after that last round! This week, we are going back to doing only 10 books at a time.

If you don’t know, Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story and is meant to help you go through your Want to Read shelf on Goodreads 5-10 books at a time and remove books from it. My goal is to get it under 100, which is where I prefer it to be.

Last time, we had 144 books left on my Goodreads Want to Read shelf, but it is currently sitting at 139. Here is a LINK to my previous installments if you would like to catch up!

If you have been here for a while, you will already know that Lisa Jewell is one of my favorite authors and none of her books will be leaving this list. I own Watching You and I hope to read in in July, but my plans never go exactly as I want them to.

I added this book back when I was trying to get into thrillers and I just added anything anyone suggested. I think this one is going to leave the Want to Read shelf. I never find myself thinking about it and if I read anything by this author, it will be Girl on the Train before anything else.

I have seen the movie for that one, but I don’t remember much about it, so I would start there.

I read the debut book by this author last year and I really want to get to this one, too. This one isn’t leaving as I 100% still want to read it!

I’m going to remove this one. Not because I don’t want to read it, cos I do, but because I want to reread the series. I read the 1st four books back in 2020. I don’t remember the 2nd book at all and I heard this one correlates to that one.

I don’t know if I slept through the audiobook of book two, but I can’t remember anything about it. I could just reread that one, but I think I’m going to reread the whole thing. Next time, I am going to read the physical books.

I always have that one book that goes on every TBR for around 6 months before I just read it and this book seems to be in the cycle this time.

I even bought this book right after it came out and still haven’t read it almost a year later. I’m not removing it from the list because I still want to read it one day.

This is a book I’m not sure I will love. I keep trying to get ahold of it but my library, Libby, and Hoopla don’t have it. I’m going to remove it for now. Mostly because I am worried it is the type of story I won’t love. I’ve heard there is a magical realism element to it and that makes me nervous. I might change my mind down the road, but I’m not sure.

I am going to remove this one, too. I am not sure where I heard of this book and I don’t know what it is about. I do know it is a fantasy series, but I already have too many of those at the top of my list including the next book we are going to talk about.

I’m going to start this series in 2021. I am just not going to allow myself to go into 2022 without having read at least the first book. I think I’m really going to love this book, so I just need to get to it.

I just bought this book this year and I really wanted to get to it in June, even though it wasn’t on the TBR, but I hit a 2nd round of that reading slump and didn’t read much at all.

When the mood hits again, I’m going to pick this up immediately. I had other books I needed to get to, so I put this off until those books put me in a slump. I’m not going to let that happen again.
