Down the TBR Hole #3

Hello readers! Today we are going over some more of my Goodreads TBR. I have done this 2 times before, and it has been pretty easy so far, but we will see!

If you haven’t seen this before, Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story.

Last time, we ended at 144 books, and are now up to 147 once again. Because of this, I think I’m going to go over a few more than I have previously. This TBR just isn’t going down as fast as I would like it to. So, the plan is to go over 15 books in this one.

Before we go any further, I want to disclaim there are affiliate links and ads within this post. When you use my links, you will be supporting my content and I will make a small commission. Today and tommorrow, the 21st and 22nd, are both Prime days and are the perfect time to use my links!

I don’t know why I haven’t bought a copy of this book and read it yet. It came out in February and I have yet to read it. This won’t be leaving the TBR.

For The Wilderwoman, this book is staying. It doesn’t have a cover or release date. I tried asking the author 9 months ago when the book might come out, and she had no idea. At the time, I was writing a post about books I was excited to be released in 2021 and I wanted to know if I should put that book in it. I’m willing to wait because I loved her debut book.

I put this on the TBR because of the Koreadathon in 2020. I just didn’t get to it then and still haven’t. This one is staying because I still want to read it at some point!

Finally, we have a book I’m not sure about! I did start reading this one last year and I didn’t care much for it. I think this will be the first book to go in today’s round. I don’t ever think about reading this book and I don’t really know what it is about even.

Third Korean book in a row. This one is by an author who is said to be the female/Korean version of Stephen King. EVERYONE was putting this on their TBR for Koreadathon last year and I decided to pick up a copy. I do own this book, so it will stay for now. I’m really excited to read this when I start getting into the mood for more thrillers this year.

I am excited to read this one, but I think I’m going to remove it for now. I am not more interested in Humans by Matt Haig than this book. I will still read it one day, but it doesn’t need to sit on my Goodreads Want to Read shelf taking up space.

This one is on my TBR for this month! I haven’t read it just yet, but I have been meaning to for so long. If I don’t get to it in June, I will still read this eventually.

I have put this book on a ton of different TBRs and I need to just get to it!

I haven’t been in much of a mood for cute contemporary books, so I haven’t even tried this author yet. I am a reader whose habits change so much as far as genre goes. At the end of 2020, all I was reading was mystery/thrillers and currently I am binging fantasy books and graphic novels. Eventually, I will be back into reading contemporary and I’ll read this book.

I read Recursion by Blake Crouch last year and ended up buying this book because I loved Recursion. It sounds EERILY similar to Recursion. I am worried this will be a different version of that book, but I could still end up really enjoying it in the end. Blake Crouch just seems loves stories where people wake up in a reality that is different from their own. I have seen the show for Wayward Pines, and that also happens in that, but is a dystopian, unlike this one and Recursion. For now, it is staying put!

This is the last shot I am giving Ruth Ware. I own this book, otherwise I wouldn’t bother. I have read In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, and The Lying Game and have liked every book less than the one before. I hope to, at least, try this book this month and see what I think.

The Death of Mrs. Westaway is one of the better received of her books, so I might end up on the popular side of it.

This is a retelling of Les Misérables, sort of. Les Misérables is one of my favorite classics. If you like books that take place over the course of their entirety of someone’s life, you will love Les Mis. This book follows a side character named Eponine. I am hyped for this book, I just haven’t bought a copy of it yet. My library and Libby do not have it, so I can’t go that route either.

This one is about a girl who wants to play hockey, when it is centered around boys. I just love reading about people who have a hobby they love, and I haven’t read many centering sports. I think this one will stay, too.

I just have a feeling this book is going to be sad and devastating. Even though I love books which devastate me, I always avoid them if I know they will.

I just know I’m going to love this book and I just need to get to it.

I don’t even know what this book is about, so it is being kicked off the TBR. I think I added it when I was adding a bunch of books that were thrillers and I removed a lot of those books, but somehow this one remained.

This one is getting removed, as I don’t even know what this book is. I’m not going to read the synopsis to convince myself to keep it, lol.

I don’t physically own this book, so I’m going to remove it. As I said, if I like The Death of Mrs. Westaway, it might be added back on, but for now, it is going.

I know this one is a retelling of Turn of the Screw, which I am a fan of, HOWEVER, I need to remove more books from here.
