Down the TBR Hole 7

Down the TBR Hole 7 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 so good too! In case you missed it last week, I removed 15 books and only kept 1 book. The extra removal was part of the series I nixed from the week before. It was a damn good week!

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):

 Afterlife Series by Willow Rose.

YA / Paranormal series box sex. Like why do I even own this?! It’s the Kindle version but still. What little thing in my brain told my finger to click on this one? Huh? Haha.

In addition, I’m not too sure I want to read a book where many reviews state it’s a Harry Potter knock off.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 The Other Summer Girl by Sarah Towne.

Get a load of this cover! Gorgeous!

The blurb sounds good for a debut novel. I am definitely willing to give this one a try. It’s an NA contemporary novel.

That being said, I did look into Amazon and the author’s website. This book is nowhere to be found. The link for Towne’s website doesn’t work! Goodreads also said it was the first book in a series so now I am definitely torn!

The Verdict: REMOVE.


 Perfect Alibis by Jane Wenham-Jones.

A girly, cute cover is ahead!

Perfect Alibis sounds like it’d be a cute book too. But the perfect alibis that are given are alibis for when women cheat on their significant others. It’s a twisty kind of story, but interesting nonetheless. However, it still doesn’t pull it in automatically and is something I have to keep!

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 Happy Birthday to Me by Brian Rowe.

Damn, just how many candles are on the cake?! Alas, a fantasy book, so not too interested. Basically, the MC is 17 years old, but each day he ages one year. Ugh. Meh.

The Verdict: REMOVE. +1

(The second book in this series was also added to my TBR. It’s REMOVED too.)



 Nothing Left to Lose by Kirsty Moseley.

Ok, now this book sounds damn good. A woman witnesses her boyfriend’s murder, and is then kidnapped by the killer? Captured and held captive for five months, she’s finally found. But of course with an empty hole in her heart. Charges and pressed, death threats insue, and holy cow! I could get sucked into this one.

The Verdict: KEEP.



The books (6-10):

 Death comes e-Calling by Lelsie O’Kane.

At first, this definitely appealed to me. The cover makes me think it’s going to be about death threats over the Internet with emails or chats or something. But it’s not. It’s a cozy mystery. The e-calling part of the book is because the MC creates e-cards for a living.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 Virtually Me by PK Darling.

There’s nothing in the title or the blurb to keep me interested. I went back to find it on Amazon to give a preview, but the book is no longer listed. Ugh, I hate it when that happens. Guess it’s to be expected though because I added this book three years ago. Things are bound to change!

The Verdict: REMOVE.




 The Keatyn Chronicles (1-3) by Jillian Dodd.

I know what I’ve said about series y’all. I don’t have time for them. This will be an exception though! Keatyn and her chronicles have been on my list for a long time. I am keeping this, even though it’s a YA.

The Verdict: KEEP.




 Room 702 by Ann Benjamin.

Sitting at 500 pages, this is one book I should get rid of. It sounds super good though, and right up my alley!

The reviews have been not so good, and the rating sits right at 3.1. Ugh. It had such potiential.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 Fool for You by Megan Noelle.

Another series, guys. Ahhh! I adore the roses on the cover though. A huge sucker for roses.

I am seriously torn on this one. It needs further thought. Is there something wrong with me? Haha. Help?!

The Verdict: KEEP.



The books (11-15):

 Pieces of Perfect by Elizabeth Hayley.

Totally not sure if I like this cover or not, but I’m leaning towards not.

A good old love triangle can hardly steer me wrong when it’s what I love so much. This will provide that.

Some of the reviews have been really good, so we’ll see.

The Verdict: KEEP.



Average Jill by Summer Ellis.

What a freaking awesome cover! I think this is one book that may fall flat, especially based on some of the reviews. Oh man, this is so difficult to choose! I love the cover because it shows Jill probably isn’t average. Total body image cover, but it’s awesome. I love the shoes and the pants! However, the reviews are saying Jill is completely average and there’s not too much awesome about her. Ugh.

The Verdict: REMOVE.



 Her Last Love Affair by Clara James.

What a risky cover! Aww, yeah!

I think I’ve read one other book by James and I loved it! Her Last Love Affair is part of a series, but they’re short novellas. Not too sure if I could pass this one up!

The Verdict: KEEP.




 The Wicked Wives Playbook by Ali Clark.

Hmm, interesting erotica cover. Dear readers, this doesn’t sound like something y’all might read, but damn. This definitely gets my attention! It’s so secret that I love erotica books.

The Verdict: KEEP.




 Letters to my Mother by Rebecca Heath.

Oooh, a May-December romance? Hell yes. But set in 1950s Seattle? Uh no. The 1980s is about the lowest I’ll go in years. I am not a fan of historical romances, or historical anything really. Oh well.

The Verdict: REMOVE.





Alrighty. This week was good compared to last week; I removed 10 books and kept 6 books. Again, I did remove an extra one because it was part of a series I removed. Yay for extra removals!

Total removed: 61
Total kept: 46

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