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?

Bodyguard (Hollywood A-List #2) by CD Reiss
Avg rating: 4.08/Release: November 14, 2017

I've already got the first book on my TBR, but if I'm being honest, the blurb for this one sounds far more interesting. If you've read these books, let me know which one you liked more ;)
Verdict: keep

Shopping for a Billionaire's Baby (Shopping for a Billionaire #13) by Julia Kent
Avg rating: 4.51/Release: April 24, 2018
ONLY 99¢

I think I've got tons of these books on my TBR. I've heard so many great things about them and I'm hoping to have lots of great things to say about them too.
Verdict: keep

Man Hands (Man Hands #1) by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby
Avg rating: 3.83/Release: December 11, 2017

I've never read anything by these authors. I know, I seem to always be the last one to be in the know. Ah well, I figure this book looks hilarious and hopefully will make me fall in love with the writing.
Verdict: keep

The Beauty in Darkness by Leah Reise
Avg rating: 3.95/Release: July 11, 2016

I have no idea how this book ended up on my to-read list. I'm not familiar with the author and the blurb isn't really doing anything for me. It's a paranormal book but it doesn't even touch on any romance. Why is it here???
Verdict: delete

Simply Irresistible (Lucky Harbor #1) by Jill Shalvis
Avg rating: 3.92/Release: December 5, 2017

If I were to read this, I'd buy the paperback because it's only $1 more than the kindle book. I haven't read from this author in a very long time. VERY long. I usually save books like this for times when I need to cleanse my mind of the dark and deadly shit I usually like to read.
Verdict: keep

Notorious Pleasures (Maiden Lane #2) by Elizabeth Hoyt
Avg rating: 3.96/Release: December 5, 2017

The paperback is basically the same price as the kindle copy. What's with that? I remember my mom reading these books and me reading them right behind her. It's been a very long time since I've done that or had this author's words come across my eyes. Still good? I'll keep it on hand for when I need a historical romance fix.
Verdict: keep

Love Bites (Darkness & Light Duology #1) by TL Clark
Avg rating: 4.08/Release: October 20, 2017

I prefer the cover on Amazon. It seems more paranormal than this one, for sure. I don't know how this book ended up on my list. A few of my GR friends read it, but there isn't anything about this book that's drawing me in. Maybe it'll pop up again some day.
Verdict: delete

Twisted Truths (Blood Brothers #3) by Rebecca Zanetti
Avg rating: 4.24/Release: November 14, 2017

I'm lucky enough to have this and the first two books of the series sitting on my bookshelf. I can't wait to dive into it. I'm a huge fan of this author. I've loved everything of hers I've ever read. If you're interested in this book too, it's probably better to get the mass paperback because it's cheaper than the ebook.
Verdict: keep

Play Dirty by Sandra Brown
Avg rating: 3.89/Release: November 1, 2007

I've been reading this author's books from the start. I can't get enough and I don't think I ever will. So reading this won't be a hardship.
Verdict: keep

Ecstasy Unbound (Guardians of the Realms #1) by Setta Jay
Avg rating: 3.87/Release: March 3, 2017
ONLY 99¢ & FREE in KU

This story sounds so interesting and if it wasn't for the MFM and menage scene warnings, I'd probably one-click it.
Verdict: delete

Mayhem's Hero (Operation Mayhem #3) by Lindsay Cross
Avg rating: 4.48/Release: November 16, 2017

One of those books I added as part of a giveaway. The blurb sounds interesting and I'm weak for military romances, however, I'd have to start this series from the beginning.
Verdict: delete

Keep Her Safe by K.A. Tucker
Avg rating: 4.08/Release: January 23, 2018

I've been waffling on whether or not to start this author's books. I've seen her books all over Book Outlet for really cheap. Maybe I should try one?
Verdict: keep

Sinful Empire (Mount Trilogy #3) by Meghan March
Avg rating: 4.28/Release: December 19, 2017

I've already got book one on my TBR and added this one as part of a giveaway. I obviously didn't win lol.
Verdict: delete

A Dangerous Game (New York Confidential #3) by Heather Graham
Avg rating: 3.85/Release: March 13, 2018

I think it's weird that the hardcover is cheaper than the kindle copy. Who comes up with these prices??? Anyhoo, I haven't had the best of luck with this author's books and I only added this as part of a giveaway. Another one I didn't win lol.
Verdict: delete

Siren (Siren #1) by Jaimie Roberts
Avg rating: 4.20/Release: September 3, 2016

I've never tried this author before but everyone and their mama recommended this one to me. Dark romance/thriller is my preferred read and this one is supposed to fit the bill. I can't wait to find out!
Verdict: keep
