Down The TBR Hole #2

It’s been a while since I participated with this meme. Click here for the 1st post. Progress: I read Spelled by Betsy Schow and loved it 🙂

This meme was started by Lost in a Story (not sure why the link is odd).

Here are the rules:

  • 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?

The Books

 

Dishing the Dirt (Agatha Raisin, #26)Dishing the Dirt by M.C.Beaton*

This is book 26 in the Agatha Raisin series. That’s right 26! Now I prefer to start a series at the beginning, even when it’s not necessary. Sometimes it’s not possible because there are so many books. And then I forget which I have read. As is the case with these. I don’t think I’ve read this one. But I want to.

 

 

Serafina and the Black Cloak (Serafina, #1)Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty*

It’s set in the historic Biltmore Estate…and there’s a ghost. At least I think there’s a ghost. Look at that cover. It’s gorgeous. I’ll have to get this one at the library. Reading the blurb I noticed the accent. Mixed feelings.

 

 

A Batter of Life and Death (A Bakeshop Mystery, #2)A Batter of Life and Death by Ellie Alexander

Book 2 in a series. Murder, baking, and chocolate mixed with a reality TV show. Sign me up.

 

 

 

NeverwhereNeverwhere by Neil Gaiman

I own this one and have for some time. I’ve never read one of his books. In all honesty- he scares me just a little. I shall move this to my Fall TBR. I will read it.

 

 

The Friends of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury                   The Friends of Jesus (Heart of the Story, #2)

Giveaway. The blurb interests me but not enough to read the book

 

 

 

Sea Lovers: Selected Stories by Valerie Martin

Sea Lovers: Selected Stories

I want to read this for two reasons. 1- the cover is beautiful. 2- the short stories sound fascinating.

 

 

Louisiana Saves the LibraryLouisiana Saves the Library by Emily Beck Cogburn

It sounds like a quirky story but … not interesting enough and maybe a touch cliche.

 

 

 

*These two were recently spotted on clearence at BAM. I guess I should have bought them.

The Take Away

Goal: Read Nevermore by Febrary 1st! It’s on my Kindle I have no excuse.

I deleted 2 books from my Goodreads list.

Placed 4 books on my  IGTIBID List. (I’ll get to it before I die)

I’m undecided on 1 book. I probably will not read it.

That brings my Goodreads TBR shelf to 942 books!

  1. I had a chance at *Sea Lovers* as an ARC back before it came out, but I hit a time crunch and it was archived before I could download it. But I’ve really enjoyed Martin’s *Mary Reilly* and *The Ghost of the Mary Celeste*.
