Down the TBR Rabbit Hole #16

Down The TBR Hole is a meme from Lost in a Story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

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?

Charming (Pax Arcana, #1)

This one sounds like an interesting twist on Prince Charming from the fairy tales we know and love.  Keep 🙂

Jinn and Juice (The Jinni, #1)

Looks like this was supposed to be the first in a series that never had a volume two release.  I’m on the fence since the story may never be finished, but it still sounds interesting enough that I’ll probably try to read it.  Keep 🙂

House of the Rising Sun (Crescent City, #1)

I enjoyed the first book in this author’s other vampire series, House of Comarre, so I’m still hopeful that this one is also good.  Funny how this is the beginning of a series title Crescent City…  Keep 🙂

Three Parts Dead (Craft Sequence, #1)

I don’t understand how I haven’t read this one yet!  I’ve heard great things about the author and the summary sounds epic.  Clearly I need to try and read it soon!  Keep 🙂

Hunter (Hunter, #1)

I love several of Mercedes Lackey’s other series, so I thought I would love anything written by her.  Turns out that’s not true, so I’m letting this one go.  Remove 😦

The House of Shattered Wings (Dominion of the Fallen, #1)

There are too many good reviews for this book for me to not read it.  Keep 🙂

Seraphina (Seraphina, #1)

This one also has a lot of really good reviews!  Plus it involves dragons.  Keep 🙂

Phoenix Rising (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, #1)

I love the concept of steampunk but I have a very sketchy relationship with books that live in the genre.  I’m hoping I’ll like this one but worried I won’t.  Keep 🙂

The Dinosaur Lords

I knew this author from going to ARCHON before he passed away.  I love the concept, so I’m hoping to try reading it as an audiobook as I didn’t have good luck with the first couple of chapters.  Keep 🙂

Acacia: The War with the Mein (Acacia, #1)

Although this one sounds interesting, I don’t think it’ll ever gain rank on my ever-expanding TBR, so I’m going to let this one go.  Remove 😦


Ack, I don’t like passing judgment on books, but my TBR is fast approaching 1,000 books again, so I have to make the hard decisions at some point.  So many books, so little time.

What do you think about my decisions? Anything I could definitely skip? Anything I should read right now?  Thanks for the advice!

One thought on “Down the TBR Rabbit Hole #16

  1. All of these are new to me and some look like my kind of stories. I’m always surprised when I take a gander at my TBR. So many books that I can’t remember why I grabbed them. LOL
