Down the TBR Hole #16

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lost in a Story! The point of it is to help cull your reading lists down, or maybe push higher anticipated releases up on your TBR! And maybe you all can help me along the way, and tell me if you’ve loved or hated any of these!

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 synopses of the books
➽ Decide: keep it or should it go?

I like how these books are like “fantasy, fantasy, fantasy, fantasy, sure to be swoon-worth romance, fantasy, fantasy!” But honestly, all of these books are super appealing to me! So, I’m going to need your help, friends!

The Six Books:

The Rebels of Gold (Loom Saga #3) by Elise Kova
I can’t believe I haven’t read this concluding novel yet! I loved book one and book two, but I read them both from ARCS sent by the publishers, where I don’t believe they did ARCs for this one. So, maybe that’s why I let it slip my mind and fall to the wayside, but I really want to read this!
Verdict: Keep ✅

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne
After The Hating Game, wild horses couldn’t keep me away from this.
Verdict: Keep ✅

The Queen of Blood (The Queens of Renthia #1) by Sarah Beth Durst
I bought this from Book Outlet a long while ago, and I just never got around to it. Which seems to be what I do with most Book Outlet purchases. But now I think book three is already out, and I know that’s not the end! I just don’t know if I have it in me to start a brand new series. Especially when there are so many more out there that I’d rather pick up! Have you all read this? What do you think? Help me, my loves!
Verdict: Delete ❌

The Emerald Blade (The Landkist Saga #2) by Steven Kelliher
I read book one to this series last year and really enjoyed it! Also, that author is a complete sweetheart and I really want to work with him again, so I need to push this higher on my TBR ASAP!
Verdict: Keep ✅

Between Two Thorns (The Split Worlds #1) by Emma Newman
Kitty G raves about this series so hard that it is totally on my TBR for that reason alone. But I honestly think it will be something I love! Also, I’ve read Emma Newman’s other works and really enjoyed them! I have super high hopes for this!
Verdict: Keep ✅

Age of Assassins (The Wounded Kingdom #1) by R.J. Barker
I feel really bad because Orbit was kind enough to send me an ARC of this, last year for review, but I started seeing a lot of people saying there were fatphobia comments, and I just wasn’t in the right mindset to deal with it. Now, book two is already out, and i just don’t know if I want to invest the time or energy on something that’s probably just going to irritate me.
Verdict: Delete ❌

Okay, friends, these are the next oldest six books I have on my TBR! Let me know if you love, hate, and/or recommend me to read or trash any of these books! Thank you all so much, and I hope whatever you’re currently reading is five star worthy! 💛🎃👻

  1. Thanks for sharing, this sounds like a really cool concept. I have not read any of these books. Which of these are you most tempted to read next?

  2. Age of Assassins is so good 😢


    Thought of you today. I’m at MCM London Comic Con and amongst loads of awesome authors; Laini Taylor is here. Just remembered how much you loved Strange the Dreamer and you popped into my head 😊
