Down The TBR Hole #5

August 18, 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?

Wet (The Water's Edge #1) by Stacy Kestwick
Rating avg: 3.96
Added: Jan. 17, 2016/Release: May 5, 2015

A re-read of the blurb isn't sparking my memory or my interest. I think this was added because of the hype. Don't believe it ;)

Verdict: Delete

Mister O (Big Rock #2) by Lauren Blakely
Rating avg: 4.09
Added: Jan. 18, 2016/Release: May 2, 2016

I swear, everything this author touches turns to gold so I won't be passing on this one. Although I did think I read this one already ;)

Verdict: Keep

The Beast (Black Dagger Brotherhood #14) by J.R. Ward
Rating avg: 4.45
Added: Feb. 4, 2016/Release: April 5, 2016

I always meant to get back to this series. I actually have this book in paperback and still intend to fall even more in love with these men!!

Verdict: Keep

Legend (Real #6) by Katy Evans
Rating avg: 4.40
Added: Feb. 17, 2016/Release: Feb. 9, 2016

I've read all of the books in this series except for this one and the next, Racer. Although none of these guys will ever touch my heart quite like Remy did, they are amazing in their own ways.

Verdict: Keep

Falling Into You (Falling #1) by Jasinda Wilder
Rating avg: 4.04
Added: Feb. 18, 2016/Release: March 14, 2013

I remember craving stories full of angst. The more painful, the better. I'm just not in the mood anymore.

Verdict: Delete

Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan
Rating avg: 3.70
Added: Feb. 20, 2016/Release: March 1, 2016

I think every book I've read from this author got 5 stars from me. I'm willing to see if this pattern will hold true.

Verdict: Keep

Sexiest Man Alive by M. Clarke
Rating avg: 4.05
Added: Feb. 24, 2016/Release: Feb. 22, 2016

I re-read the blurb and it doesn't really interest me. I'm not sure why I added it aside from maybe it was hyped up during the release.

Verdict: Delete

A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole
Rating avg: 4.27
Added: Feb. 29, 2016/Release: March 15, 2016

I've only read the darker side of romance from this author and although I'm not sure how her writing transitions to the contemporary side of things, I'm willing to give it a try.

Verdict: Keep

Fatal Affair (Fatal #1) by Marie Force
Rating avg: 4.13
Added: March 4, 2016/Release: June 21, 2010

I remember picking this one up at a bookstore that was going out of business and I was really looking forward to it. It's literally been sitting on my bookshelf collecting dust. Not cool.

Verdict: Keep

Reign (Sin City Outlaws #1) by M.N. Forgy
Rating avg: 4.18
Added: March 4, 2016/Release: January 2016

Just look at that back! Seriously, I'm a sucker for some well-defined traps ;) I've read a few books from this author and enjoyed every one of them so I assume this one will be no different. And it's the first in a series!

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
