Down the TBR Hole #43

Down the TBR Hole was started by Lia over at Lost in a Story.  All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.

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 will be repeating this process until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR. My TBR pile is officially under 700 books!  I owe it all to the #Readathon last weekend.

This week’s books:

  Bad Magic and Bad Luck by Pseudonymous Bosch – KEEP.  Both of these books sound like a lot of fun. A Blade of Black Steel by Alex Marshall- KEEP.  I absolutely loved A Crown for Cold Silver, so there’s no way I’m getting rid of this book. The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone – KEEP.  “Veronica Mars” meets “World of Warcraft”?!  Yep, I’ll give this cozy mystery series a chance. Acne, Asthma, and Other Signs You Might Be Half Dragon by Rena Rochford – KEEP.  I absolutely love the title, and I’ve read several great reviews. The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub – KEEP.  I love King’s older books, but I’ve never read any of the one’s he co-authored.  I’ve had this particle story on my physical TBR for more years than I remember, but unfortunately it will probably still be on the shelf until next year.  I only read Horror during September and October, I’ve already read a King novel this year (‘Salem’s Lot) and I’m currently in the middle of Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt (highly recommended by King, BTW) with less than a week left until Halloween. My to-read shelf is down to 698 books.  It probably won’t decrease at all this week unless I miraculously finish the 4 books I’m reading right now, but at least it’s under 700.
