Down The TBR Hole #4

August 11, 2018

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
➽ Read the synopses of the books
➽ Decide: keep it or should it go?

Christmas From Hell by R.L. Mathewson
Rating avg: 4.05
Added: Nov. 10, 2015/Released: Dec. 29, 2015

I've loved everything I've read from this author and promised myself that I would read everything she's written.

Verdict: Keep

What I Need by J. Daniels
Rating avg: 4.34
Added: Nov. 15, 2015/Released: March 5, 2017

C'mon, it's J-freaking-Daniels!! She's one of the authors to make me fall in love with the indie romance genre of books. So I'll never NOT read her books.

Verdict: Keep

Fighting to Start by S.L. Ziegler
Rating avg: 3.91
Added: Nov. 27, 2015/Released: June 10, 2015

I'm trying to remember how or why I added this book. I think it was based on my love of a review and at the time I was a huge fan of MMA romance books. Ah, what the hell!

Verdict: Keep

Playing For Keeps by J.C. Grant
Rating avg: 3.78
Added: Dec. 8, 2015/Released: August 6, 2015

I read the warning - THIS IS AN EROTIC NOVEL. If you do NOT like dominant, possessive, very Alpha-males, Playing for Keeps is not for you. - Nuff said.

Verdict: Keep

The Stepbrother Bargain by Chloe Hawk
Rating avg: 3.76
Added: Dec. 10, 2015/Released: April 22, 2015

Another book from when I was super interested in stepbrother romances. But this cannot even be found so if I wanted to read it, where would I get it?

Verdict: Delete

Visions by Kelley Armstrong
Rating avg: 4.25
Added: Dec. 10, 2015/Released: August 19, 2014

I absolutely loved book 1, Omens, and immediately added this book to my tbr. I'm not sure why I didn't immediately dive into it, but I will be changing that.

Verdict: Keep

Finding Lizzy Montgomery by N.A. Alcorn
Rating avg: 0.0
Added: Dec. 30, 2015/Released: ???

I've loved everything I've read from this author but this book still hasn't been released and there's no news about it :(

Verdict: Delete

Raw: Rebirth by Belle Aurora
Rating avg: 3.95
Added: Jan. 7, 2016/Released: ???

I'm still waiting on this book!! It's freaking Twitch y'all!! Love that man. One of the first anti-heroes I had the privilege of falling in love with!

Verdict: Keep ⇨⇨ Now in my 'already read' pile!

Ruined (Ethan Frost #1) by Tracy Wolff
Rating avg: 4.06
Added: Jan. 14, 2016/Released: Jan. 7, 2016

I think I added this based on a review I read at the time. There were parallels drawn between it and 50 Shades and I thought 'why the heck not?' But after re-reading the blurb, I'm not really feeling inspired.

Verdict: Delete

My Soul to Keep by Kennedy Ryan
Rating avg: 4.23
Added: Jan. 17, 2016/Released: Nov. 13, 2015

I've always planned to read this story (obviously), but now that I've met these characters after reading Grip's story, I'm definitely keeping this one on my tbr. If only I can remember to actually read it ;)

Verdict: Keep

And that's it for this edition of keeping it real with my TBR. Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think? Are any of them on your TBR and do you agree with my verdicts? I hope your TBR continues to flourish!! Happy reading!! xoxo
