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?

Raw Deal (Larson Brothers #1) by Cherrie Lynn
Avg rating: 3.90/Release: January 24, 2017
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2CzoN7d

Have you read from this author before? I haven't, however, this book was recommended to me by Val of Steamy Reads and she doesn't give recs easy. So I figure it's worth a try.
Verdict: keep
Good Boy (WAGs #1) by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy
Avg rating: 4.09/Release: January 31, 2017
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2W2BUqM

I remember looking forward to reading this leading up to its release. But you know how that is... life got in the way. I didn't realize it was a sports romcom until I re-read the blurb and now I'm even more excited to get to it.
Verdict: keep
Ravaged by the Gingerbread Man by Fannie Tucker
Avg rating: 3.27/Release: December 12, 2014
FREE in KU https://amzn.to/2sxiQDm

I read a review by my GR friend Selene and had to add this. It sounds utterly ridiculous and smut-tastic. It's short and, judging by the gingerbread man theme, sweet.
Verdict: keep
Anything You Can Do by R.S. Grey
Avg rating: 3.96/Release: February 2, 2017
FREE in KU https://amzn.to/2T1aCiv

Anyone else find something utterly delicious about the enemies-to-lovers trope? Feuding doctors, sexual tension out the wazoo, and I'm on board with it all!
Verdict: keep
Caraval (Caraval #1) by Stephanie Garber
Avg rating: 3.94/Release: January 31, 2017
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2sA6MBf

I have thie hardcover sitting pretty on my bookshelf, waiting to be cracked open. As I've said before, I'm finding my love for YA all over again and this one seems so interesting. A game that doesn't seem as innocent as it appears sounds like just the kind of mystery I'd be looking for.
Verdict: keep
The Sect (Wicked Trinity #1) by Courtney Lane
Avg rating: 3.76/Release: December 11, 2014
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2szPYdC

SueBee recommended this one to me on GR a while back. She's good at letting me know about the dark and twisted reads she comes across. I think the h will be annoying because she's rich and chooses a homeless life, but I'm hoping the reasoning behind it makes sense. And it's a cult trope. YES!!
Verdict: keep
Ransom (Aces & Eights #1) by Logan & Jacob Chance
Avg rating: 4.27/Release: March 21, 2017

It's weird, but I can't find a link to purchase this book anywhere. I've searched and searched and I'm wondering if maybe the book got a new title. If you have info about it, cuz I'd love to read it, please hit me up.
Verdict: delete (until I find out more)
Meant For You (Sexy Flirty Dirty #4) by Lili Valente
Avg rating: 3.88/Release: February 14, 2017
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ATJhI2

I read the first book of the series, Magnificent Bastard, and absolutely loved it. So much in fact, that I immediately added the entire series to my TBR. So I'm most definitely going to want to read this, whenever I get to it.
Verdict: keep
Royally Matched (Royally #2) by Emma Chase
Avg rating: 4.16/Release: February 21, 2017
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2DlfKIM

Is there a book by this author I could ever resist? I've seen such amazing reviews for this series and I desperately want to read it. I just need to get through a few dozen review requests first.
Verdict: keep
Paying Daddy's Debt by Alexa Riley
Avg rating: 3.48/Release: February 6, 2017
FREE in KU https://amzn.to/2DmYm6v

It's only 61 pages and I'm looking forward to some delicious smut.
Verdict: keep
Vanished (Beautiful Mess #4) by T.K. Leigh
Avg rating: 4.44/Release: February 7, 2017
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2T4exLh

After reading and loving the Beautiful Mess trilogy, when I saw that a standalone from the series was being released, I had to add it. Here's the thing though... I was happy with where the couple left off and I really don't want to see them suffer any more. So... pass.
Verdict: delete
Kingdom (Avenues Ink #2) by A.M. Johnson
Avg rating: 4.48/Release: May 23, 2017
FREE in KU https://amzn.to/2W3fqWr

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Possession. The hero had a troubled mind and it really worked to not only establish who he was as a character, but his family dynamic. So I've already met Liam. This book is about his second chance with the love of his life and I'm a sucker for those ;)
Verdict: keep
Wolfsong (Green Creek #1) by TJ Klune
Avg rating: 4.50/Release: June 20, 2016
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2Fy3Pdb

After everyone and their mama read this book and most of them gave it 5 stars, I figured I'd join the bandwagon. But I really don't have a strong drive to read it. It sounds beautiful so I'm not sure why I don't care to read it. Maybe if it comes up again I'll jump to it.
Verdict: delete
My Sexy Professor by Juliette Jones
Avg rating: 3.36/Release: February 14, 2017

I can't find this book anywhere, but then again I didn't search very hard.
Verdict: delete
Trigger (Circle of Justice #1) by L.P. Dover
Avg rating: 4.15/Release: February 6, 2017
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2T1aTSp

The author had me at 'A killer... that's what I am.'
Verdict: keep
