Down The TBR Hole #2

Down The TBR Hole #2

Even though I was able to get some books off of my TBR this past week by reading them, I'm looking forward to see if I can keep dropping that massive 600+ need-to-reads!

Hey, guys! It’s time sit down and look at the next five reads listed on my Goodreads TBR! I’m hoping I’ll be able to knock a few of these ones off this segment. Every little bit helps takes an ounce of anxiety off. It’s amazing how much a number can influence you. Books, you may drive me into needing therapy. 

This was started by Lost In A Story back in 2016. Here are the rules, in case you are interested in participating too!


  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

I’ll be going through 5 books each week.

The Books

Red Rising

This series has been absolutely raved about in the YA world. While I don't always believe the hype, it hasn't deterred me enough to take this off my TBR. This one is a KEEP.

The Veritas Conflict

This is a Christian Fiction/Thriller stand alone. Discussing the battle between good and evil, it focuses on Harvard's Christian origins. It sounds similar to some of Frank Peretti's work, and I'd like to give it a shot. So, this is a KEEP.

THe princess And The Goblin

I'm so torn over this one! I must admit that I mainly want to read this because this author has been said to have influenced C.S. Lewis' and J.R.R. Tolkien's writing styles. However, I find myself more intrigued with that bit of fact than the actual story. For now, this one will GO. It may show up again later...I'm not sure...

Agnes Grey

I will say right away that this one is a KEEP because it's part of a reading challenge I'm taking a part in this year for the Bronte sisters. See you shortly, Aggie.

The Thief

Ugh. This one is a definite KEEP for me as well. I've wanted to read this book (and perhaps the series) for a long time. So, it shall continue to grace my TBR until I can get around to it.

1/5 - Well, one less is still progress, I guess. (That rhymed far too much.)
So, what are your thoughts? Are there any of these books that you'd say yay or nay to?

I am the author behind Foals, Fiction & Filigree. An all-encompassing blog about horses, books, and my art.

    1. It’s true 😣 a lot of the older books on my TBR are books that I really want to read! The more recent add ons seem to be more flippant choices. So, in hoping the further I get into my pile, the more I’ll be able to take off!
