Down the TBR Hole #12

Today is Saturday, my book friends, which means it’s time for me to tackle my TBR! Every Saturday I tackle my TBR by taking part in Down the TBR Hole, a weekly meme created by Lia from Lost in a Story

I haven’t done one of these posts in a few weeks due to not having the motivation and just being busy with Camp NaNo prep. But I decided that I wanted to make sure to do a post this week for you guys to stray away from all the posts about writing.


becauseyoulovetohatemeBecause You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy by Ameriie

I know that a lot of people don’t like it when BookTubers get published but this collection of anthologies just sounds so cool!

Final Verdict: KEEP



The_Sword_of_SummerThe Sword of Summer by Rick Riordon

I said before (or at least I think I have…) that I’ll just remove all the Rick Riordon books from my TBR until I finish the Percy Jackson series.

Final Verdict: GO



noughtsandcrossesNoughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman

I think this book deals with racism or maybe a future society where the white people don’t have rights but the black people do? I don’t really know and I haven’t heard that many things about it but what I have heard has all been positive!

Final Verdict: KEEP


outrunthemoonOutrun the Moon by Stacey Lee

I was anticipating this book so much last year and I got it right after it came out but just haven’t read it yet… I don’t know why!! I still really want to.

Final Verdict: KEEP



rookRook by Sharon Cameron

I was anticipating this so much because it was said to be a dystopian Paris but the reviews from some of the reviewers I trust the most didn’t seem to enjoy it and I always forget it even exists.

Final Verdict: GO


happilyeverafterHappily Ever After by Kiera Cass

I consider The Selection series to be done and over with for me but I haven’t read this novella?? WHY?? This would probably take me like an hour to read!

Final Verdict: KEEP



girlatmidnightThe Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

I was interested in this a while back and it does sound interesting, but I’ve heard it isn’t very original and honestly I just forgot it exists.

Final Verdict: GO



shadowhunters_codexThe Shadowhunter’s Codex by Cassandra Clare

I REALLY NEED THIS BOOK YOU HAVE NO IDEA!! Once I buy it I know that I’ll read it.

Final Verdict: KEEP



quidditchthroughtheagesQuidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp

Of course I’m keeping this!

Final Verdict: KEEP




fantasticbeastsandwheretofindthemFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander

Same as the last one, of course!

Final Verdict: KEEP

    1. Awesome how your sister likes them! I don’t know when they came out… sucks that they aren’t more popular


  1. I totally agree with BYLTHM. But even though it says that booktuber wrote some of it, it’s only a little bit. But I am still excited for it!

    1. Yeah, they only gave the authors the prompts and then wrote an essay thing afterwards describing and analyzing it.


  2. I NEED Because You Love to Hate Me in my life!!! I want it so bad, I’ll probably go and buy the actual physical copy even though I really shouldn’t.
    As for the Shadowhunter Codex. It’s not really something to read in my opinion. Not that you shouldn’t get it, you totally should! But it’s not a story, so it’s more like something to look at?

    1. Haha I’m friends with Whitney from WhittyNovels so I might have to just ask her if I can borrow it. Ah so it’s just one of those fun books with lots of pictures?

  3. I like Sharon Cameron bc she wrote The Forgetting and I met her, but I haven’t read her books. And The Girl of Midnight just has a pretty cover. So those two I’m torn on but I agree with your list!!

    1. The Girl of Midnight does have a pretty cover, doesn’t it?? I think I mainly added it to my list because of that…


  4. Good choice with Rook. I thought I would love it and sadly it didn’t do anything for me. It was meh. And seeing a Rick Riordon book on your list reminded me that I really need to finish the Percy Jackson series as well. I’m only 2 books in!

    1. Glad to hear I made the right call with Rook! I’m one book away from being done with the Percy Jackson series! It gets sooo good

  5. I don’t really understand the controversy around Because You Love to Hate Me. The booktubers didn’t actually write the stories, right? It’s just their prompts?

    Liked by 1 person

    1. The booktubers talk about the story that the author wrote based on the prompt they gave them. I guess people are angry about it because the booktubers are still being published cause they’re ‘popular’ or whatever and not because they ‘earned’ it.
