Hello everyone! Since I had such a blast making the last down the tbr hole last week, I decided to do it again! I love how this is slowly shortening my to be read list!

In case you didn’t know, Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lost In a Story that allows us to cleanse our TBR piles from the books we probably won’t get to.

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Vicious by V.E Schwab
This is one of those books that I’m ALWAYS on the edge about. I never know if I want to read it or not, but I hear such good things about Victoria’s books. I think I might get to the Darker Shade of Magic series before I get to this one (only because I own those books!) but this one will still stay on my tbr pile. I just need motivation to get to it!

In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken16150831

So if you read my last down the tbr hole post…you may know that I have a tendency to NEVER complete series’. It’s mainly because I never want to part with the world and the characters! But by the time I want to actually read it, I can barely tell you half the peoples names. And I hate myself for not completing this trilogy because I LOVED the first two books SO much. Like they were instant 5 star ratings. I do have hope that someday I’ll read this last book because I need that type of reassurance in my life. This one is staying…even though I’m a little iffy.

Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

13644052Not even going to lie to you guys, this series was my guilty pleasure 2-3 years ago. I was absolutely obsessed with Daemon and Katy. I feel like this is a series that I seem to like less as I get older and as I get introduced to different types of literature. Don’t get me wrong, I still really enjoyed this series, but I don’t think I would pick up a book like this in the future, if I read a similar synopsis? If that makes any sense. BUT, I’m not going to get rid of this book (bc I’m a hoarder) and because I’m such a mood reader and I know one day I’ll feel like jumping back into this series. So this one is staying.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page 9780062280688_p0_v1_s1200x630

This one is a kind of a last minute switch. I was fully prepared to get rid of this book, only because I don’t feel the same excitement to read this as I did two years ago, but a couple days ago I saw a bunch of reviews about this series, and they were all positive! It got me so excited again and I just really want to read this book right now. Staying!

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

I honestly don’t remember when I bought this book. I think it was one of those impulse buys, where I just saw it at the store and immediately put it in my basket. I think this one will have to go, only because I’m really not interested in the premise anymore…but if you can convince me otherwise, (because I know a lot of people love this book) go right ahead!


So out of the five books, four of them are staying! Do you agree with my choices? And what book did you recently take out of your TBR pile?

Thanks for reading!
