Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lost in a Story! The point of it is to help cull your reading lists down, or maybe push higher anticipated releases up on your TBR! And maybe you all can help me along the way, and tell me if you’ve loved or hated any of these!

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 - I do about 15-20 because my list is HUGE
➽ Read the synopses of the books
➽ Decide: keep it or should it go?

The End of Lies (The Single Lady Spy #4) by Tara Brown
Avg rating: 4.30/Release: February 2018

I remember loving this series. A single mother turned reactivated spy with one heck of a love triangle with two swoon-worthy heroes. It was heavy in drama and I'm eager to get back to it!
Verdict: Keep
Merried (Misfit Brides #5) by Jamie Farrell
Avg rating: 4.54/Release: October 4, 2016

New-to-me author! This one was recommended to me (thanks Carol) and I was told that it can be read as a standalone. It has an intriguing plot and I hope it's not as saccharine sweet as it seems.
Verdict: Keep
Midnight Scent (Amour Toxique #1) by Dori Lavelle
Avg rating: 3.91/Release: September 27, 2016

I've read another dark series from this author and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was gritty and a bit scary and I wanted more. So when I saw this series, you better believe I had to add it. A girl falling for a guy through love letters but he's not the kind of guy you fall for... wonder where this will lead.
Verdict: Keep
Falling Completely (Starling Falls #1) by Aidan Willows
Avg rating: 3.97/Release: January 14, 2016

New-to-me author! I've been warned that I will truly hate the heroine in this story and that it might not be the book for me and I'm going to listen to this advice. Why put myself through the torture?
Verdict: Delete
Everything For Her (For Her #1) by Alexa Riley
Avg rating: 3.93/Release: December 27, 2016

I have the paperback sitting signed and pretty on my bookshelf. I still haven't found time to read it, but I am looking forward to it. It's their first full-length story and I'm eager to see what they've done with it.
Verdict: Keep
Hidden12, Intelligence Required (Hidden12 Saga #1) by Gail Parker
Avg rating: 4.22/Release: November 21, 2014

New-to-me author! A friend of mine said that this book was like an unknown gem. A sci-fi thriller with plenty of action, something that I would enjoy. I'm not sure I want to spend $5 on an unknown, but I'll keep it in mind.
Verdict: Keep
Darktown (Darktown #1) by Thomas Mullen
Avg rating: 4.05/Release: September 13, 2016

New-to-me author! I love controversial books. I don't remember adding this one but I'm kinda glad I did. Then to know that Jamie Foxx will be producing this one for the big screen, what could be better? Black cops investigating pre-Civil rights who can't arrest white suspects, drive squad cars, or enter the station? Dang!
Verdict: Keep
Thief of Hearts (Hearts #5) by L.H. Cosway
Avg rating: 4.02/Release: October 4, 2016

Love this series! I aim to read and own every book in this series because it's amazing. If you haven't started, you need to!!
Verdict: Keep

Dollars (Dollar #2) by Pepper Winters
Avg rating: 4.41/Release: November 18, 2016

I actually purchased this on release day and just haven't gotten around to it. I loved the first book and can't wait to dive into this!
Verdict: Keep
Gravity (The Gravity Series #1) by A.B. Bloom
Avg rating: 3.75/Release: October 31, 2016

New-to-me author! It's a YA dystopian fantasy story and something unlike anything I've read before. I'm not sure if I can trust an author to lead me somewhere when I've never heard of them, but the story is a little too intriguing to pass up. I have been warned that the language itself might throw me off a bit, so I'm a little worried.
Verdict: Keep
The Reaper's Mate by Celia Aaron
Avg rating: 3.60/Release: October 8, 2016

I've already said that I'll read anything from this author. Anything.
Verdict: Keep
Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo
Avg rating: 4.46/Release: September 29, 2015

New-to-me author! I have this book sitting pretty on my bookshelf. Having it and actually reading it are two different things. But I do plan to get to it sooner rather than later.
Verdict: Keep
A Veil of Vines by Tillie Cole
Avg rating: 4.11/Release: November 27, 2016

I love love love Tillie Cole. So reading this won't be a hardship. I'm used to her darker stuff (#FlameWhore) but I'm willing to bet this contemporary read will be just as amazing.
Verdict: Keep
Burn (Dark in You #1) by Suzanne Wright
Avg rating: 4.17/Release: November 26, 2015

New-to-me author! I was looking for a good PNR read and this one came highly recommended. Never read this author before but I'm willing to give it a try. It doesn't hurt that the blurb sounds interesting.
Verdict: Keep
Clipped (Blue Falls #2.5) by Stella James
Avg rating: 4.45/Release: October 3, 2016

The blurb says "If you enjoy insta-everything, a strong and wild female lead and plenty of steam, this short and sexy read is for you." Well, I enjoy all of this!
Verdict: Keep

Another epic fail 😒 Once again I kept almost everything. When the heck will my list ever decrease? Probably never as I keep adding to it 😆😆😆

So have any of these books made it to your reading lists? I'd love to know if you've read any of them and what you thought of it. Until next week... Happy Reading! 💜💜💜
