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?

Black Sheep (Dark Desires #2) by Zara Cox
Avg rating: 3.97/Release: March 13, 2017

Okay, so I really want to read this. I really do. It sounds right up my alley. But I'm scared. The blurb says the girl was with the hero until his dad ruined them and took her for his own. Does that mean she slept with the dad? And then the hero wants her back? What??? Yeah, I need to read to find out I guess.
Verdict: keep
Misbehaved by Charleigh Rose
Avg rating: 4.01/Release: April 26, 2017

I've read only one book from this author and I loved it. I always wanted to read more from her, so here's my chance. It's a student-teacher forbidden romance and I'm looking forward to finding out if it's as dirty as I hope it is.
Verdict: keep
Rooke by Callie Hart
Avg rating: 4.17/Release: March 14, 2017

It's Callie Hart. Honestly, I don't think there's anything this author can write that I won't read. Whether it's contemporary, dark, whatever, I'm down.
Verdict: keep
Dishonorable (The Amado Brothers #1) by Natasha Knight
Avg rating: 3.84/Release: March 14, 2017

It's Natasha Knight. Another author I trust and would probably read anything from. I've been wanting to read this book. Needing to read it. I love books based on vengeance and damsels taken as sacrifice. Bring it!
Verdict: keep
Dirty Filthy Rich Men (Dirty Duet #1) by Laurelin Paige
Avg rating: 4.13/Release: March 27, 2017

I started reading Weston's story and I didn't love Sabrina. I thought what was going on between here and Weston and Donovan was yucky. Not a fan. So reading their story isn't even on my to-do list. It sucks because so many people loved these characters. Ah well.
Verdict: delete
Feyness (Red Order #1) by E.S. Carter
Avg rating: 3.97/Release: August 23, 2016

I actually have this book sitting on my kindle right now. It's a recommended dark read and I'm hoping to heck I love it.
Verdict: keep
Royally Bad (Bad Boy Royals #1) by Nora Flite
Avg rating: 3.71/Release: April 1, 2017

I haven't had the best experience with reading books from this author. I get that many love her, and I appreciate that, and maybe one day I will too, but for now, I'm aiming to keep the clutter off my tbr.
Verdict: delete
Jacked Up (Bowen Boys #4) by Elle Aycart
Avg rating: 4.01/Release: March 8, 2016

I've never even heard of this author so I'm not sure how this book ended up on my tbr, but I do like the blurb. There's something about military men that I can't resist. So I guess we'll see if I like it.
Verdict: keep
Two Point Conversion by Liane Moore
Avg rating: 3.54/Release: April 1, 2017

I had to have added this for a giveaway or something. Because there's no way I would willingly add a menage book to my tbr. I don't read those. I'm not a fan. So pass, pass, pass.
Verdict: delete
Twist Me (Twist Me #1) by Anna Zaires
Avg rating: 4.04/Release: February 2016

I've enjoyed pretty much everything I've read from this author. She has a really unique style to her stories that immediately captures my attention. I can't wait to see how this series keeps me captive.
Verdict: keep
The Magnate's Mail-Order Bride (The McNeill Magnates #1) by Joanne Rock
Avg rating: 4.07/Release: April 4, 2017

So I added this as part of a giveaway. Never heard of the author and the blurb makes it seem pretty cheesy. It sounds like the kind of romance I used to read as a teenager, when I'd steal my mom's books.
Verdict: delete
Say You'll Be Mine (NOLA Heart #1) by Maria Luis
Avg rating: 4.07/Release: April 27, 2017

This was offered as a freebie on Amazon so I grabbed it up. I hope I like it.
Verdict: keep
Forever (Friends #3) by Monica Murphy
Avg rating: 3.91/Release: April 4, 2017

I've got the entire series on my tbr. I love the way this author writes YA/NA stories. Innocence and angst and love. High school dramas and heartache. I'm looking forward to it.
Verdict: keep

72 Hours by Bella Jewel
Avg rating: 3.78/Release: April 4, 2017

There are so many mixed reviews for this story. But I like the idea of this thriller. It sounds like something that I would love. So aside from being told that the heroine will probably irk me, I think I'll still give it a chance.
Verdict: keep
Tempt The Boss (Tempt #1) by Natasha Madison
Avg rating: 4.16/Release: March 1, 2017

A couple of people recommended this one to me. It's a funny, romcom, office romance about a divorced mother of two returning to work and her new boss presses her buttons. She also presses his. Then there's all that sexual tension. Yes please!
Verdict: keep
Hot As Puck (Bad Motherpuckers #1) by Lili Valente
Avg rating: 4.05/Release: April 3, 2017

I've really liked the books I've read from this author. I think this is a spin-off from a series I've already read. Who cares? I'm still reading it. It's the friends-to-lovers trope and sounds HOT!
Verdict: keep
Mercy, Bound, Released (The Series) by Natalie Bennett
Avg rating: 3.85/Release: March 4, 2017

I've been promised that this is a dark and twisted read and I'm guaranteed to enjoy it. We'll see about that.
Verdict: keep

Say You'll Stay (Return to Me #1) by Corinne Michaels
Avg rating: 4.12/Release: June 20, 2016

I still haven't read much from this author, but I've got plenty of her books on my tbr and on my kindle, waiting to be read. However, as much as I enjoy a great second chance romance, I've promised myself not to read anything just because I can. And this one has too many points that will piss me off. So pass.
Verdict: delete
The Chosen (Black Dagger Brotherhood #15) by J.R. Ward
Avg rating: 4.32/Release: April 4, 2017

I really need to get back to this series. I read the first 14 books back-to-back, waiting for this book's release. I really wanted to see what happens to Xcor, but I'm not looking forward to getting more of Layla. Can't stand that chick. But at least I know that the other characters will be there to make it a little easier to deal with her.
Verdict: keep
Consequences (Consequences #1) by Aleatha Romig
Avg rating: 3.94/Release: August 5, 2011

Well, it's currently free on Amazon, so I just one-clicked. When I'll get to read it, who knows. I tried to read it a couple of years ago and was bored and quit. I hope my fresh eyes will see it better.
Verdict: keep
