Down The TBR Hole #27

down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the 27th edition of my Down The TBR Hole Posts.

I hope you had an amazing week ahead and managed to read lots of books. It’s time for another Down The TBR Hole. You might already know how it works, but I have listed the rules below anyways. Ready? Let’s go!

How it works:

❤ 1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
❤ 2. Order on ascending date added.
❤ 3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
❤ 4. Read the synopsis of the books.
❤ 5. Time to Decide: keep it or should it go

Here’s the next patch:

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

This book has been praised by the entire book community. Therefore, it is significantly important I do not ignore those precious signs. You, book, must stay.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Lost for Words Bookshop by Stephanie Butland

A cute cover and even cuter synopsis. I am certain I will undeniably love this book, and it has to remain on my humongous shelf.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Sirens (Aidan Waits Thriller, #1) by Joseph Knox

Well, we have a thriller here, which is a genre I greatly enjoy. On top of that, we have a main character who is disgraced, emotionally damaged and despised by his superiors. I can assume he is also really handsome. The perfect antihero. Yes!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1) by Sabaa Tahir

Now, this one deserves a little discussion. I haven’t read An Ember in the Ashes, but I did read the second book instead. (See my review of A Torch Against The Night). I really loved the second book, but I somehow think that reading the first book would be a waste of time. Should I move to the third book, or should I read the whole series again, from the beginning? I am leaving this in your hands, my dears!

Verdict: KEEP ☑  REMOVE ✖

I Would Have Saved Them If I Could by Leonard Michaels

Even though it has been recommended to me by a friend of mine, I don’t think this would be a book I’d enjoy. I will remove it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Murder, Curlers, and Cream(Valentine Beaumont Mysteries #1) by Arlene McFarlane

This book is so pinky and fluffy. Even though not my preferred choice, it could be part of my summer read plans. It remains on my Down the TBR Hole as a positive.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Vampirist: A book about real vampires by Cecilia Fredriksson

I love vampires, and this book is something close to a vampire non-fiction. In the world, there are people who actually live similar to vampire lifestyle. They feed on eachother and what-not. And for some reason, I am curious to read this.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

One of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus

One of Us Is Lying is the perfect example of a book that makes me scream inside. A mystery in high-school, where 5 students go to detention, and only 4 come back alive. Why haven’t I read this particular book already?

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1) by Rick Riordan

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan

 I have bulked these two books together, because I will only keep one. After very long consideration, I decided to keep the second book. I love Greek Mythology, and I know I will love the Lightning Thief. 

Verdict: KEEP ☑ & REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegantWe only removed 3 books this time around. It’s not as good as previous times, but we are moving slowly. Have a look at my complete TBR list. 

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

    It would have been hard to let any of these go.

    The Hero’s of Olympus series is a continuation of the Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief series so I would definitely recommend starting with Percy Jackson although Hero’s is great too.

    Good job, I would have kept those same books, 🙂

  4. bookwormscornerblogspotgmailcom April 14, 2019 / 5:06 pm

    Great choices. I would have made the same choices. (Though I have yet to read any of the Percy Jackson series.)

    Wow! I’d find this sooo hard. I’ll give a try.

  6. typicalmummy April 15, 2019 / 10:21 am

    Oooh this sounds like a fun idea! Out of all those The Lost For Words Bookshop looks like it would be my favourite! Ella x

  7. Whispering Stories April 15, 2019 / 11:05 am

    I’ve not read any of them, a few are on my radar but not on my TBR list as it’s too long at the moment.

  8. Lisa April 15, 2019 / 11:09 am

    I think there’s only one book that I would keep to read but I love the concept x

  9. Nicola Hamilton April 15, 2019 / 6:19 pm

    I wouldn’t know what ones to keep or remove as I havn’t read any of these. I love this concept tho!

    I used to be a book blogger but rarely have time to read now. I do miss it!

  12. Rachel April 15, 2019 / 8:06 pm

    Thanks for the recommendations. I was looking for a good book!

  13. Zoe April 15, 2019 / 8:15 pm

    Ooh hard choices. I definitely wouldn’t read a first in a series if i had already read the second. The Vampirist sounds like an interesting choice.

    So glad you kept Evelyn Hugo. She’s worth it!

  15. mightymamabear2017 April 16, 2019 / 6:41 am

    I need to do this! My to-read pile is getting out of hand!

    • innah96 April 16, 2019 / 4:06 pm

      Well, I want to think so, but I also keep adding books as well. haha

  16. lambandbear April 18, 2019 / 7:59 am

    I can’t remember the last time I read a book! Hard to find the time these days.
