Down the TBR Hole #71

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 665 books, thanks to all the reading I’ve been doing for RIP XIV.

This week’s books:


Rise of the Retics by T.J. Lantz – KEEP.  The synopsis mentions “sword-fighting squirrels” and an “emotionally imbalanced fairy.” Sounds fun!

Pale Queen Rising by A.R. Kahler- KEEP. No red flags went up while I read the synopsis, so this might end up being a solid Fantasy read.  I’ll give it a try.

Gateway to Fourline by Pam Brondos – GO.  The synopsis is a bit generic, and the reviews are not good.  I’m not going to waste my time with this one.

The Queen’s Poisoner by Jeff Wheeler – GO.  I just don’t want to read this one, and that’s OK.

Venom & Vanilla by Shannon Mayer – GO. This one comes off as absolutely ridiculous.  No thanks.

My TBR pile is down to 662 books. I know that it will be at least one book lower by next weekend, since I’m nearly done with Day Shift by Charlaine Harris.
