Down the TBR Hole 10

Down the TBR Hole 10 is a great way to get rid of some of those books you say you’ll read but never will. This is one of those things. I have been doing fairly well too! No matter what, each week is getting better because I am getting rid of at least two books. Every book is one step closer to a smaller, more manageable TBR. And let’s be real. This is something I really need! Haha.

Down the TBR Hole originated here. Basically, the gist is to start at the beginning of your TBR and go through a few books and decide if you’re going to keep them. My goal is to go through a minimum of 10 books each week. At 10 books a week, this would take me years to get through! I may do a little bit more, depending on how it goes. What do y’all think? I started at 1594, I believe. A shit ton of books lemme tell you! Each week, it is going down just a little bit.

Let’s get started!

The books (1-5):

 It’s Got to be Perfect.

At first glance, this book seems like it could be good. A memoir of a matchmaker. I couldn’t find it on Amazon, so there is that. Ugh. I’m really not liking when this happens.

The Verdict: REMOVE.





 One Pink Line.

Oooh, the title makes me think it’s going to be about a pregnancy, and it’s a girl! Let’s see…

So the blurb didn’t really tell me anything. I made the grave mistake of reading a few reviews, one of which has spoilers that were not marked! Grah! So now, I know the whole plot of the book. Hard pass.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 Picturing Perfect.

What a glorious cover! Will the blurb match?

Part of the blurb:

Hadley Foster has been through a lot in her twenty-two years: the death of her beloved father, her mother’s descent into mental illness, and the loss of her soulmate, Jason Kelly, from whom she walked away years ago.

Back home, nerdy but handsome Jason Kelly is now a successful writer who could have anything—and anyone—he wants. But deep down, he still misses his beloved “Haddie” and dreams of winning her back.

Seems like a typical romance, which is what I love. But this, I’m just not sure. Besides, it’s part of a series too.

The Verdict: REMOVE.

 Living Lies.

Meh. This whole thing doesn’t appeal to me. Ahhh! The overall rating isn’t too bad, but it doesn’t look like it’s for me. Oh well.

The Verdict: REMOVE.




Wrapped Up in You.

Now, this is a cute, simple cover. I hardly ever read holiday books and this has the Christmas-y theme. I’ll stick to holiday novellas.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



The books (6-10):

 When Girlfriends Make Choices.

A forbidden love book speaks out to me. But it sounds like the male MC is a crazy, mean jerk. Of course, that’s after reading a few reviews. I don’t always have to like the characters, but I feel this character would influence the female MC into making horrible choices. Again, just after reading the reviews. It sounds like a train wreck waiting to happen.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 So Easy to Love.

A unique cover that makes me think it’ll be a poetry book. Checking blurb now…

Ok, it’s not a poetry book. But more like a collection of tiny short stories. Each few sections has a title, and then proceeds to tell part of the story. I am intrigued by this format.

The Verdict: KEEP.


 The Proposal.

Hmm. Absolutely nothing about this book speaks out to me.

The Verdict: REMOVE.





 It Started With a Click.

What’s up with these weird covers? Seriously. Or is it just me?

I can’t find this on Amazon, so that makes it a pass, in addition to the blurb not pulling me in.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 The Girl Who Never Came Back.

Love the cover!

Omg. This sounds amazing! A twisted family secret with a disappearing little girl? Yesss.

The Verdict: KEEP.




The books (11-15):

 Welcome to Paradise.

The cover is super cute guys.

But. This won’t be a book I’ll be reading. It’s about a reality tv show, and I can’t even stomach those in real life. So nope, not in my books either.

The Verdict: REMOVE.




This book sounds eerily similar to a movie. I can’t remember what it’s called but basically, everyone is born with a timer on their wrist. Timer. That’s what it’s called! LOL. Anyway, the timer counts down until you are to meet the one you’re destined to be with. But one person doesn’t have a match, or their timer is up, or something like that.

The premise of this book is exactly that.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 CoCo Pinchard’s Big Fat Tipsy Wedding.

I vaguely remember reading the first book in the series. It’s in email format, which I love. But I read the first one so long ago, I can’t even remember who CoCo was engaged to. Reading the blurb does nothing. Ain’t nobody have time to reread series.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 The New Ever After.

Adorbs cover!

This book is the second in the series, and reading the first one is a must. Nobody has time for that, no matter how good this one sounds.

The Verdict: REMOVE.




 Edible Delectables.

Another cutesie, overdone cover.

Bakery and a second chance love? Oh yes, please!

The Verdict: KEEP.




This week on DTTH:

I kept 3 books this week.
I removed 12 books.

By the way, next week’s format will be different. I’m going to tackle a ton of them!

Total removed: 98
Total kept: 54

Thanks for joining in on the edition of:
Down the TBR Hole 10!
