Down The TBR Hole #4

My last TBR hole post was March 27th 2018.  In the 17 or so months since I have done this I have added 144 books to my goodreads TBR. (now totaling 243 books!)

So I think its time to do this again ….

I love Scottish Romances but I have a handful of physical ones I need to read and I never look on Goodreads when I am in the mood for a romance, I just wing it.

This one sounds like of dark and twisted, but I have a ton of retellings I would rather read before this one.

As much as I love Cinderella and retellings I know I will probably never pick this one up.

Not a bad start, but I still have a long way to go!

Have you read any of these? Are any of these on your TBR too? Is your TBR out of control? Let me know!

  1. I am impressed that you only have 243 books on your TBR list. I have over 2000 and being way older than you have less time to read. 📚💕😅 I do purge every now and then, but for every book I take off, I tend to add more.

    1. I know for a fact you read waaaay more than I do 😂😂 You probably read more in a year then I will in my entire life :p so don’t give me any of that! 😀 And I tend to add a ton of books too but I am trying to keep it to ones I might actually read some day 😂😂

  2. I’ve got Tale As Old As Time on my shelf and I was so excited to read it but still haven’t picked it up. I’ve also read ToG and compared to Maas’ ACOTAR, I was a much bigger fan of this series! I remember reading All American Girl when I was in HS? 😅 Makes me feel old this! Haha Well done on culling down your list. Since January I’ve added over 300 books to my GR TBR 🙈

      1. Haha I think that’s one of the big downsides to ToG–there are SO many books 🙈Yeah, I mostly add books to my TBR and sometimes remember that they’re on there when I find them in store/online but most of the time I forget they’re there. I really need to do a sweep of it 😂

  3. Hmmm. My Goodreads TBR is at 793. (And there are more that I haven’t officially added.) I suspect you would consider that out of control. 😀

    I listened to The Princess Diarist very shortly after Carrie’s passing. It was a wonderful read, but (at the time) very hard to listen to. Still, I’m glad I did. I hope you enjoy it too!

    1. Haha I only think its out of control if you think its out of control! Maybe yours is a list of every book you find remotely interesting and then I would say its way to short 😉

      I’m glad you liked it, I have heard such good things about it! Thanks!

      1. LOL! My list is books that I want to get to eventually and don’t want to forget about. I haven’t added everything that I find interesting, because some of them are on other lists. For example: I want to at least consider reading every Hugo- and Nebula-Award winning novel, but I haven’t added them all to this list because it’s easy to find lists of the award winners. 🙂

        I do think the audiobook is often the way to go for memoirs, especially when they’re narrated by the author. It just adds a lot to the experience.

  4. At the end of last year I did a major slash of my TBR but am still hovering around 800 books!! It’s totally absurd. So good job kicking books that you can’t imagine yourself reading. ❤️ I read Shadowfell and even got to the second book. It was enjoyable and not what I expected. I also want to read The Princess and the Hound. I LOVE animal magic and retellings are a lot of fun too. If you ever want to buddy read The Princess and the Hound I would love to do so with you Brittany!

  5. I don’t even want to think how many books I’ve added in the last several months, lol! I never really do cuts to my goodreads TBR pile because it’s more of a ‘maybe one day’ list than a hard TBR pile… 😀
