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?

Hooker (L.A. Liaisons #2) by Brooke Blaine
Avg rating: 4.11/Release: March 8, 2016

After reading and loving book 1, Licked, I knew I needed more from this author. So adding the next book in the series was a no-brainer. It's a standalone romcom and I'm sure it will have me laughing.
Verdict: keep
By Appointment Only by Lisa Eugene
Avg rating: 3.99/Release: February 16, 2017

I remember adding this as part of a giveaway. After re-reading the blurb, although it sounds like it could be interesting, I'm not interested right now.

Wardrobe Malfunction (The Wardrobe series #1) by Samantha Towle
Avg rating: 4.16/Release: February 18, 2017

This one came highly recommended by Maria at Steamy Reads. Usually when I listen, it's worth it, so I'm listening this time.
Verdict: keep
Preston's Honor by Mia Sheridan
Avg rating: 4.14/Release: February 19, 2017

I love love love this author. Everything I've read from her has been amazing. Her books are emotional journeys of beauty and I can't wait to read from her again.
Verdict: keep
Four Crows by Lily White
Avg rating: 4.02/Release: 2017

This author is great at writing mind-bending, mind-frigging, mind-boggling dark thrillers. So yeah I'm gonna read it.
Verdict: keep

It's sitting on my kindle. When I'll get to it is anyone's guess.

And... this one is sitting on my kindle too.
Verdict: keep
Sex Says by Max Monroe
Avg rating: 3.95/Release: February 21, 2017

I loved loved loved Tapping the Billionaire. That book had me rolling. This author had me laughing so hard that I knew I had to read something else from her to see if it was a fluke.
Verdict: keep
His Princess (The Princess #1) by Alexa Riley
Avg rating: 3.75/Release: February 20, 2017

I actually bought the entire series on release day. And I'm not one to waste my money, so...
Verdict: keep
Black Hearts (Sins Duet #1) by Karina Halle
Avg rating: 4.02/Release: February 19, 2017

I haven't tried any of this author's dark stuff or suspense books, so I'm interested in seeing how well she does it.
Verdict: keep
Bad Bad Bad by K. Webster
Avg rating: 3.83/Release: March 30, 2017
Banned book - get it from the author's site

I was lucky to have bought this book before it got booted from Amazon. It's part of Kristi's taboo treats, which are a series of interconnected standalones. I've read a few books from it and hope to get to this one soon.
Verdict: keep ⇨⇨ Now in my 'already read' pile!
The Will (Magdalene #1) by Kristen Ashley
Avg rating: 4.29/Release: April 8, 2014

I'm a huge fan of KA. HUGE! I've got the first book in all of her series I haven't read yet on my tbr. I'm sure I'll get to them one day. *fingers crossed*
Verdict: keep
Dragon's Lair (Wind Dragons MC #1) by Chantal Fernando
Avg rating: 4.01/Release: May 19, 2014

This author is pretty hit-or-miss for me. I know plenty of people who love her work, but I haven't found a book of hers to fall for yet. That doesn't mean I'm giving up. But the kindle version of this book is only $1 less than the paperback. What's with the pricing? So maybe I'll try a different book.
Verdict: delete
Peace, Love & Macarons by Jessica Gadziala
Avg rating: 4.24/Release: 2017

I haven't read any of this author's lighter works. In fact, until I saw this book, I didn't know she had any. I've loved her darker reads so I'm more than willing to give this a chance.
Verdict: keep
