Down the TBR Hole | Vol. 33

I sometimes feel guilty that I do this post.

On the other hand, I know that it’s necessary for my sanity. When I started this post series, I had just under 1000 books on my TBR list and was always finding something to add. I mean, they are books being published right and left every year!

After the last post, I was left with 697 books. However, I decided to stop my Kindle Unlimited subscription, which means that I took a hard look at the books on my TBR list that I added or kept because they were available through KU. After doing that, my TBR list is now at 692 (obviously I didn’t have that many books on my KU list that I took off).

The Books

Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

I really like Tom Hanks and I’m curious about this book of his.

Verdict: Keep

The Devil’s Playground(Morgan Kingsley #5) by Jenna Black

I really liked this series. However, this book came out 8 years ago. I don’t think I’ll finish this one.

Verdict: Go

Android Dreams: The Past, Present and Future of Artificial Intelligence by Toby Walsh

This subject still interests me; I’m just worried about where I’ll find it.

Verdict: Keep for now

Universal Harvester by John Darnielle

I read another of Darnielle’s novels and enjoyed it. This one sounds really intriguing.

Verdict: Keep

A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne Harris

I love Harris’ writing and definitely look forward to reading this one.

Verdict: Keep

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Mermaids/Sirens? Definitely yes.

Verdict: Keep

These Rebel Waves (Stream Raiders #1) by Sara Raasch

This one has a lot of mixed reviews; some hated it and some really enjoyed it. I’m still kind of curious and my library system has a copy.

Verdict: Keep

The Glass Spare (The Glass Spare #1) by Lauren DeStefano

Another mixed review book. But my library system has it, so this is a keep for now.

Verdict: Keep

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi


Verdict: Keep

Rolling in the Deep (Rolling in the Deep 0.5) by Mira Grant

Another mermaid story! Yes!

Verdict: Keep

Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1) by Mira Grant

A dark fantasy about mermaids. Yes please.

Verdict: Keep

Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie

I remember adding this to my TBR but not why I did.

Verdict: Go

Masks and Shadows by Stephanie Burgis

I don’t think I’m interested anymore.

Verdict: Go

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns (Rise of the Empress #1) by Julie C. Dao

I’m still interested. And my library has it.

Verdict: Keep

Most Likely To Score by Lauren Blakely

I enjoy Blakely’s romance novels.

Verdict: Keep

This World is Full of Monsters by Jeff VanderMeer

I’ve only read VanderMeer’s Annihilation and enjoyed it. I’ve since added more of his books to my list. But this one is a short story and I don’t think I’ll read it.

Verdict: Go

Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine, Ann Aguirre

I’m enjoying the one series I’m reading of Caine’s and I’m interested in this space one.

Verdict: Keep

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

I remember trying to read his Martian Chronicles and just couldn’t get into it. But this one sounds like one I could get into.

Verdict: Keep

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

Still interested; for when I have the craving for some historical fiction.

Verdict: Keep

Story Time by Edward Bloor

This is the only book on my to re-read list. I’m not sure if I’ll get to it, but I want to keep it just in case.

Verdict: Keep

Wow, I think this is the most books I’ve kept in one of these posts. After all of that, I have 688 books left on my TBR list. I am also finally at the end of 2017 books added; I can only hope that I didn’t add too many over the course of 2018.
