Down The TBR Hole #13


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?

Change of Heart (Fostering Love #2) by Nicole Jacquelyn
Avg rating: 4.03
Release: Sept. 6, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2CctXYy

I've got this and the first book in the series on my TBR. It's an enemies-to-lovers romance and the blurb hints at a love triangle. I'm scared of the latter but I find it very hard to resist the former.

Verdict: Keep

STONED (Wrecked #1) by Mandi Beck
Avg rating: 4.23
Release: July 11, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2CbV6uq

I'm all for a rockstar romance, but cheating gives me hives. As this is an author I haven't read before (I think?), I'm not eager to see how she handles it and if she can salvage the pieces of my heart she'll break.

Verdict: Delete

The Debt by Tyler King
Avg rating: 3.74
Release: May 10, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2CIpKwS

I've read one book by this author before, Riot Street, and really enjoyed it. This one seems to have an even more interesting plot than that one did. So why not go for it?

Verdict: Keep

Behold the Stars (Signal Bend #2) by Susan Fanetti
Avg rating: 4.17
Release: Dec. 6, 2013
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2NCjk3e

I loved the first book, Move the Sun, so much and after reading it, I immediately added the second book of the series to my TBR. I just haven't found the time to get to it. But I really need to know what happened to the folks in Signal Bend.

Verdict: Keep

Dirty For Me (Motor City Royals #1) by Jackie Ashenden
Avg rating: 3.76
Release: July 26, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2CHFY9j

I read a review by a trusted source and she mentioned that the h is cheating on her boyfriend with the hero. NOPE!!

Verdict: Delete

Hands On (Hands On #1) by Cathryn Fox
Avg rating: 3.69
Release: July 18, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2NFf4je

This sounds like a friends-to-lovers, fling type of deal. It's the first novella in a three-part series and I've heard lots of good things about it.

Verdict: Keep

Salvatore (Benedetti Brothers #1) by Natasha Knight
Avg rating: 3.76
Release: July 18, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2Emqwkz

I'm becoming a big fan of this author. I've loved everything I've read of hers so far and this series is one I have seen and heard a lot about. It's dark romance, organized crime, and a girl who signs a contract that gives away her life. YUP!!

Verdict: Keep

Blood to Dust by L.J. Shen
Avg rating: 3.96
Release: July 17, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2Cfc0sj

I think this is one of the only books I haven't read from this author. It's been sitting on my kindle for a while but I haven't had the chance to get to it.

Verdict: Keep

The Gun Runner (Mafia Made #1) by Scott Hildreth
Avg rating: 3.74
Release: August 8, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2CIFgZE

I've read a couple of books by this author and really liked them. This one looks so good and I'm a huge fan of books involving organized crime so...

Verdict: Keep

Swerve (Boosted Hearts #1) by Sherilee Gray
Avg rating: 4.02
Release: April 20, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ygOWGR

After seeing multiple 5-star reviews for this by some of the GR friends I trust most, I one-clicked this book and ever since it's been sitting on my kindle. Added to the never-ending TBR.

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
