Down The TBR Hole | Round 7

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by Lost In A Story in which you attempt to reduce your Goodreads TBR. It basically involves organising your Goodreads 'Want To Read' shelf by date from oldest to newest, looking at the first 5-10 books and decided whether you're still interested or not.

This is a book that I owned for years but recently unhauled. I started it twice but just couldn't get into it at all. I kept it on my Goodreads shelf as I don't want to completely rule out trying again with this series in the future. I own the first two movies so I may give the movies ago first and then, if I enjoy them, try the series again some day.

Judgement: Stay

Confessions Of A Police Constable by Matt Delito

I have enjoyed other books in this 'Confessions Of...' memoir series and this one, following a London police constable, sounded quite interesting. I do think I would enjoy it this, but I don't think I'll ever get around to it with all of the many other books I want to read.

Judgement: Go

This is another book in the same series just mentioned. This one follows a female undercover cop. Again, I think this would be an interesting read and something I would enjoy, but I don't think I'll ever get around to it.

Judgement: Go

As seems to be the case in every one of these posts I do, we have another summery contemporary with a beach town setting. This one follows a girl who is working for a rich family over the summer, as well as the youngest child of this family who falls for a boy her parents would not approve of. It sounds fun and like my kind of book. However, there are some reviews on Goodreads, from people whose opinions I trust, that describe this book as underwhelming and just average. For that reason, I think I might give this one a miss for now.

Judgement: Go

This is one that I have very mixed feelings about. It is about a girl who been warned by her older sisters not to get involved with any of the boys in the Vargas family, but when one is hired to help her and her father restore his motorcycle, she starts to fall for him. On the one hand, all of my Goodreads friends that have read this book have given it 5 stars! However, the synopsis just doesn't intrigue me and I'm not sure I'm quite ready to read about a dying family member yet, which I think is a feature of this book.

Judgement: Go

Have I made a terrible mistake getting rid of so many of these books? Should I keep The Book Of Broken Hearts? All opinions are welcome in the comments - tell me what books I should be keeping!
