Down the TBR Hole is a bookish tag created by Lost in a Story It is made to help us shorten our ever growing TBR piles!
Here’s how it works:
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 or 15 or 20, if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
- Keep track of where you left off so you can pick up there next week!
Currently on my TBR: 1285 books

Most of the books here sound like really good reads actually 😛 Dove Arising and Blackout in particular as I can still remember adding them excitedly all those years ago. Hollowland and Expiration Day also still look interesting but at the same time they seem quite forgettable and not books I’d want to go out of my way to read despite availability. I remember back when I was 17 and crazy about dystopias I really wanted to read from Robison Wells, basically all the books by this author but I think you’ve guessed it already that their books aren’t readily available for my library to buy in. They all sound oh so good to me even now though but I wouldn’t really want to go out of my way to read them at the moment but I was so so tempted to keep them! Dove Arising looks like a multi layered type of story with an interesting setting and hidden secrets, but still it ain’t available so it has to go. It’s not like I have a small TBR still though! 😉

A massive yass to getting the chance to read these books! I currently own a copy of the Rain and its sequel on kindle and my library has in the Fearless and Allies and Assassins. I have read the first book in Justin Somper’s Vampirates series and was bitterly disappointed for many reasons but this older fantasy series does sound too good to ignore. Free to Fall and Wordless are both dystopian type books I was really excited about adding back in the day and am pleased to see now that they are still readily available to buy online. Wordless sounds like such a large scale book that could potentially be epic and philosophical, but I can see it also has a lot of potential to fall for typical YA tropes and become a hot mess. I’m really hoping for the former even though knowing YA the latter is more likely, but we’ll see. The Fire Wish is the book on all this list that I would look forward to reading the most as it featured djinni mythology and also what I hope will be an exciting exotic setting. These are all books I want to read at some point, when that “some point” will be I still have yet to know 😂😂 😉
