Down the TBR Hole #19

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?

The Six Books:

Ever the Brave (Clash of Kingdoms #2) by Erin Summerill
When I first was trying to figure out how to work Edelweiss, I requested three books randomly and this is one of them! I have read book one, and I didn’t love it, but I enjoyed it enough. And I hate deleting ARCs from my TBR! One day, one day!
Verdict: Keep ✅

The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
I bought this on my birthday in 2017, when I was home and vised a bookstore in Flint. How in the hell have I had this beautiful book for over a year and haven’t picked it up? Why am I like this?
Verdict: Keep ✅

In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad #1) by Tana French
When I went to the Goodreads Summit in 2017, this amazing friend I made recommended this to me and told me it was her favorite series of all time! (And that book two is better than this one!) And like, it’s the perfect time of year to read this book, so I should honestly do so!
Verdict: Keep ✅

With Everything I Am (The Three #2) by Kristen Ashley
Okay, so everyone who loves romance reads Kristen Ashley, but I somehow have been missing out for all these years! And this is the one that everyone says is her best work. What do you think? The fact that it is #2 scares me! But, maybe they are standalone? Help, friends!
Verdict: Delete ❌

Surviving Raine (Surviving Raine #1) by Shay Savage
Shay Savage is another romance writer that I can’t believe I haven’t read! And I think her books are hella taboo? I think?
Verdict: Delete ❌

Transcendence by Shay Savage
So, you all should tell me which one out of these two that I should keep and start with! Thank you in advance! And I’m sorry I’m such a romance slacker!
Verdict: Delete ❌

Okay, friends, this one was super split! But I really need your help with these six books that 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 you’re having the happiest of reading, loves! 🍂🍁

  1. I have read…approximately none of the books on this list, so I can’t be much of a help. 😦 But the covers for The Essex Serpent and In the Woods look amazing, so I’m glad you decided to keep them! (I’m shamelessly shallow when it comes to covers.)

  2. I also wasn’t really a big fan of Ever the Hunted but really thought that Ever the Brave was a huge improvement! Like from the plot to the character to the writing, it was just sooo much better and I really enjoyed it.
    But maybe it was cause I just really enjoyed the love triangle lmao.

  3. I’m thinking of writing this article myself as well so I can ‘clean up’ my Goodreads tbr, but at the same time; when I’m reading them over at other blogs, like here, I want to add new ones to my tbr, lol. Can’t wait to see what you’ll think of the ones you kept in the end!
