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?

God of Wine (Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. #3) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Avg rating: 4.24/Release: December 6, 2016

When reading from this author, the stories are more miss than hit. However, I'm not willing to give up because I actually like her writing. I'm not sure why I added this one instead of the book before it in the series. Changing that now.
Verdict: delete
The Ten Club (The King Trilogy #5) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Avg rating: 4.31/Release: January 27, 2017

Again, I'm not sure why this book was added when I haven't read anything else in the series. I intend to read her books IN ORDER!
Verdict: delete
The Monday Girl (The Girl Duet #1) by Julie Johnson
Avg rating: 4.19/Release: December 6, 2016

A GR recommendation from my gal pal, Bibi. She reminded me that either I'd love or hate the heroine and she said I'd most likely hate her. I guess we'll see, right? I haven't hated a JJ book yet!
Verdict: keep
Taking Turns (Turning #1) by J.A. Huss
Avg rating: 4.15/Release: January 18, 2017

I already know I only added this because of a giveaway. It's menage. So that's a huge pass.
Verdict: delete
Bought (Highest Bidder #1) by Lauren Landish & Willow Winters
Avg rating: 4.05/Release: December 7, 2016

I actually won this entire series in a signed paperback giveaway. I just haven't gotten around to it. I think these books are even sitting on my kindle already too. Ah well, one day.
Verdict: keep
Scarlet Stone by Jewel E. Ann
Avg rating: 4.17/Release: December 10, 2016

I actually thought I read this already. Knowing that it's on KU, I'm gonna add it. I love the sound of the plot and c'mon... it's JEA!
Verdict: keep ⇨⇨ Now in my 'already read' pile!
Passion & Venom (Venom #1) by S. Williams
Avg rating: 4.17/Release: September 13, 2016 

I actually have this on my kindle and I can't wait to read it. I've heard such great things about this story and although I haven't tried this author before, I'm trusting her to deliver something I'm going to love.
Verdict: keep
Roommate Romance by Maggie Riley
Avg rating: 3.89/Release: December 12, 2016

This book was added so I could win a giveaway. I know I'm not the only person to do this, so no shaming me. I'm actually not interested in this one and I don't even know if I won the giveaway. Guess it doesn't matter lol.
Verdict: delete
Sin In Suburbia (Brookston Housewives #1) by S. Cole
Avg rating: 3.95/Release: May 13, 2016

I LOVE this author. Everything I've read from her I've loved and as a person, she just seems like an amazing human being. So heck yeah I wanna read this!
Verdict: keep
Naughty Boss (Steamy Coffee Collection #1) by Whitney G.
Avg rating: 3.69/Release: December 15, 2016

This one's sitting on my kindle all pretty. When will I ever get to it? Love this author so much!! Ever since I read the Reasonable Doubt series, I've been hooked.
Verdict: keep
Asylum by Lily White
Avg rating: 3.91/Release: November 28, 2014

Honestly, this author writes extremely unique dark thrillers. She's one of those writers whose work has been banned, which makes her stories only more attractive to me ;)
Verdict: keep
Into the Storm by Melanie Moreland
Avg rating: 3.90/Release: November 23, 2013

I've read a couple of light romances from this author (and LOVED) and saw this suspenseful read as part of her library. I really want to see what she did with the genre.
Verdict: keep
Switch (Landry Family #3) by Adriana Locke
Avg rating: 4.19/Release: February 18, 2017

1. It's Adriana Locke. Loved her ever since Written in the Scars. Okay. 2. I've read the other books in the series, so no-brainer.
Verdict: keep
Taking What's Mine (Forced Submission #1) by Alexa Riley
Avg rating: 3.52/Release: June 19, 2015

I guess it used to be sold separately but it's now part of a Forced Submission boxed set. Which is cool, cuz then we don't have to buy or wait for the next book. AR is perfect for the their genre and I'll definitely be reading it.
Verdict: keep
Crown of Lies (Truth and Lies Duet #1) by Pepper Winters
Avg rating: 4.12/Release: January 31, 2017

I'll read anything this author writes. Any. Damn. Thing!
Verdict: keep
Bad Mommy by Tarryn Fisher
Avg rating: 4.09/Release: December 24, 2016

Mixed reviews aside, I'm still interested in reading this. However, I would love if someone could tell me if the male protagonist cheats on his wife. So if you know, let me know. Thanks ;)
Verdict: keep
Face-off at the Altar (Nashville Assassins #12) by Toni Aleo
Avg rating: 4.19/Release: December 26, 2016

I think this was added as part of a giveaway. I think this entire time I was just entering giveaways or something. Who knows? Anyway, I have other books on my kindle by this author to get a taste of her work. No need to start a series at the 12th book.
Verdict: delete
Until Ashlyn (Until Her/Him #4) by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Avg rating: 4.20/Release: December 27, 2016

I've read a book from this author before. Not sure why I would add a book from a series I haven't read and not start from the beginning.
Verdict: delete
Hate Story by Nicole Williams
Avg rating: 3.72/Release: December 26, 2016

Nope. I most certainly added this because of a giveaway. While I absolutely adore the marriage of convenience trope, this one isn't grabbing me. It seems too angsty and I'm not a huge fan of the big A.
Verdict: delete
BEND (Vegas Heat #1) by Molly McLain
Avg rating: 4.19/Release: November 28, 2016

Another of those giveaway entries. Dang, I was really in it to win it. However, I've read the blurb and it's not grabbing me :(
Verdict: delete

And that's it for this week. I am so surprised that I was able to get rid of so many books this time. Sweet! Until next time... Happy Reading!! xoxo
