Down the TBR hole! #1

Hello everyone! I’m here with a different type of blog post I’ve been seeing around. It’s called the “Down the TBR hole.” The rules are down below but I decided to go ahead and just pick at random instead of in order from ascending. This sounded fun and my TBR on goodreads is a total mess! Two of them end up being KEEP and three of them are GO. I’ve decided that just because a book is popular I don’t have to pick it up if I don’t want to. Hence why I have the problem of wanting to read over 100 books. This will definitely help me narrow my reading down a bit. I hope you enjoy!


  • Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Date added: Ascending
  • Take the first 5-10
  • Read synopsis and decide if you want to keep it or not.

A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria “V.E” Schwab 

Goodreads synopsis

Date added: 09/20/17


I have the whole trilogy on my TBR and I’ve definitely heard some mixed reviews about it. I haven’t been able to get my hands on it just yet, plus I have so many other books to read before these. I’m still interested in reading it because the synopsis sounds good. I think I’ll save these, well at least this one, on my TBR for now. 


The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

Goodreads synopsis

Date added: 08/09/17


I have picked up this book once from the library and read a chapter. I don’t think I was in the mood for it. I’m not sure I want to pick it up again because even though I’ve heard good things about it it’s just not my taste in books. I tried to branch out and where this was more historical YA it wasn’t as interesting. I don’t want to read something just because everyone else has. I think I’m going to let this one go.


Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick

Goodreads synopsis

Date added: 09/20/17


I found this novel randomly on a book store’s website and at the time I thought it sounded interesting. I reread the synopsis and it doesn’t sound like something I’m interested in anymore. I think we all know where this is going.


Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Goodreads Synopsis

Date added: 09/20/17


I’ve had this book on my TBR for a while. Maybe not on my goodreads but it’s been ever since I watched a booktuber talk about it awhile back. Again, the synopsis leads me to believe I would not like this book. I could give it a chance but I have so many other books that sound better than this one. 


The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor

Goodreads synopsis

Date added: 08/08/17

The Looking Glass Wars (The Looking Glass Wars, #1)

This book, along with the other two in the trilogy, was one that I bought at my local Books-a-Million store. It sounded interesting to me then and it still sounds pretty good now. It is on my physical shelves so it is not going anywhere anytime soon so I will read it when I feel like it. That being said it is staying.


Thanks for reading and don’t be afraid to comment what you think of my choices. Be respectful. Come back for a blog post everyday!

I have recently joined the book community and I am enjoying it. I will be reviewing books on this blog as well as posting other bookish related posts. Most of the books I read are Young Adult but I'll try to read any genre. Let me know your opinions, but be respectful of others. Don't forget to tell people about this blog if you enjoy it!
