Down The TBR Hole #23

down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

Hello guys! Happy Saturday!

This week I have some various genres and interesting titles. Let’s see how I’ve done.

How it works:

❤ 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 synopsis of the books.
❤ Decide: keep it or should it go


Here’s the next patch:


Unwrapping Her Perfect Match (London Legends, #3.5) by Kat Latham

Seems like a cute Christmas read, but it’s #3.5 in a series. I’d rather start from book #1.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Jay Walking (Pastime Pursuits #2) by Tracy Krimmer

A second book in a series again. I have to let it go.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Afraid of Her Shadow (Rom-Com on the Edge #3) by Carol Maloney Scott

A third book in a series – why do I even put these on my shelves if I haven’t read the first books?

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Pierced (Lucian & Lia, #1) by Sydney Landon

Romance and erotica. Not now. Not now…

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Diamonds (All that Glitters, #1) by K.A. Linde

This seems like a Fifty Shades Of Gray type of thing. And you know what? I’ll keep it!

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

The Billionaire’s Need by Crystal Caswell

Contemporary Romance – this might not be the right genre for me right now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Fluent in French: The most complete study guide to learn French by Frederic Bibard

I was going to read this to improve my French, but there are so many apps out there, and the reviews for this book say it’s mostly motivational.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Love Me Tonight by Kelly Jamieson

Book #2.5, so no explanation needed.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Matilda by Roald Dahl

A British classic, a book that my friends keep telling me it’s a must read.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

J.R.R. Tolkien: A Life Inspired by Wyatt North

I love the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, but the reviews on this biography seem to be quite not what I would expect to read, so I am passing on this one for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantWe only kept 2 books and removed 8 this time. My TBR is shrinking, and I love it!

Which books would you keep or remove? Please let me know in the comments – I love reading your comments and thoughts!

    Some of the books here are very interesting! You gave me reason to visit the nearest bookstore and grab one of your pick.

    Looks like you did some great bookshelf cleaning 🙂 I keep way too many books that I should just get rid of. Can’t seem to part with them, however. And Matilda really is a classic!

    Interesting way to find books to read. I will have to check my Goodreads and do as you did. That looks like a cool way to build a reading list.
