DOWN THE TBR HOLE #34


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?


Property of Drex #2 (Death Chasers MC #2) by C.M. Owens
Avg rating: 4.40/Release: March 28, 2016
https://amzn.to/2EXjml2

I don't think I've ever read anything from this author before, but I've heard good things so I thought she'd be worth a try. I already have the first book of this series sitting on my kindle, so I guess we'll see if this one will make the cut.
Verdict: keep
A Sure Thing (The Donnigans #1) by Marie Harte
Avg rating: 3.72/Release: November 1, 2016
https://amzn.to/2EXMkkQ

Okay, so $7 USD is a bit too high for a book by someone I've never read before. I'm not really feeling this book anyway, so...

#MomFail: 24 Authors & 24 Mom-Coms
Avg rating: 4.48/Release: July 25, 2017

I can't find a digital purchase link and this anthology is no longer in print. I guess the only way for me to read this would be to ask one of the authors for one.

Next Door Boss by Luke Steel
Avg rating: 3.73/Release: July 25, 2017

Here's another book I can't find anywhere. I wonder if maybe the title was changed?
