Down the TBR Hole #50

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 down to 694.  My new TBR goal for the remainder of the year is 690.  It’s looking more and more achievable as I finish books and start new ones.  I’m nearly done with Christmas with Anne by L.M. Montgomery, and I’m planning to finish it before the end of the day. So let’s see where I end up with this week’s trip down the TBR hole.

This week’s books:


The Stranger’s Magic and The Stranger’s Shadow by Max Frei – KEEP.  I put these two together since they’re the 3rd and 4th book of a series I love.  There’s no way I would get rid of these and never find out what happens to The Unequaled Sir Max.

Harmony Black by Craig Schaefer- GO.  The synopsis makes it abundantly clear that this is yet another formulaic Paranormal Romance.  No, thank you.

The Holly Tree by Charles Dickens – KEEP.  I’m hoping I’ll have time to read this before the end of the month.

Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army by Pepi Valderrama – KEEP.  This probably won’t be nearly as interesting as I thought when I got it, but I’m still willing to give it a chance.

The Priest Hole by Amy Cross – KEEP.  This is another one that probably won’t be as good as I originally thought it would be when I got it.  Like the book above, it was a freebie, and the title was what caught my interest.

My to-read shelf is down to 693 books.  I think I can knock off or read 3 books by the end of 2018; especially since Friday is my last day of work until January 3rd.
