Cleaning Up My TBR With a Giveaway (US Only) – Down the TBR Hole #62

Posted March 7, 2020 by Lisa Mandina in CUTBR, giveaway / 13 Comments

Okay, so this post takes so much time for me every week, and not that I don’t love you guys, but I get the same 10-12 people who enter the giveaway every week. So it’s not like I’m adding any followers. Because of that, I’m going to maybe change how I do this, and maybe just go through each week and delete books on my list, and let you know how many I deleted. That’s what I’m trying this week. The giveaway may or may not continue after this week.

Books I’m Keeping:

  1. The Neighbor by Dean Koontz – because I’ve read the book this short story goes with.
  2. 45 Pounds by K.A. Barson – This is the kind of book I devour. I might need to read some more of these to help me get motivated to lose weight.
  3. Dead Zone by Robison Wells – I read the first, so really still want to read this second book.
  4. A Murder of Magpies by Sarah Bromley – this one still sounds interesting to me.
  5. Shutter by Courtney Alameda – another that still sounds interesting to me.
  6. Eye Candy by Tera Lynn Childs – I don’t remember this one, but it sounds good.

Books I’m tossing:

  1. Spark by Rachael Craw
  2. The Write Thing by Anthony Ramirez
  3. One, Two, Three by Elodi Nowodazkij
  4. The Space Between by Kristie Cook
  5. Mary Hades by Sarah Dalton
  6. Right for a Reason: Life, Liberty, and a Crapload of Common Sense by Miriam Weaver and Amy Jo Clark – I don’t read many political books anymore, but I follow these two on social media
  7. Elixir by Anna Abner
  8. Mirror X by Karri Thompson
  9. Awakening by Jeremy Laszlo
  10. Across the Ages by RaShelle Workman
  11. The Tesla Gate by John D. Mimms
  12. Ephemeral by Addison Moore
  13. Company Town by Madeline Ashby
  14. Two Girls Staring at the Ceiling by Lucy Frank

Final Thoughts:

Keeping 6 out of 20 this week, not so great. But still getting rid of more than I’m keeping, so that’s good. Last week I had 3,037 books left on my Goodreads TBR. I’m tossing 14 this week, leaving me at 3,027 on Goodreads.


Once again this is a US only giveaway, unless you are International and see a book here you really want and would be willing to pay for the difference in the shipping through Paypal or some other way. You get to pick any two books from the pictures below, as long as they don’t get traded away, or picked by last week’s winner, and I will pick a surprise book from the piles to add to your choice. You can pick only one from the 2019 pile, and one from the 2020 pile, the other should be from one of the others. Here are your choices:

2020 ARCs:

Once again I’m going to let you pick two, along with me throwing in a surprise third book!  Just enter the Rafflecopter below.   Now, as I mentioned at the beginning, this may be the last weekly giveaway I do for a while with the lack of contestants/followers I’m getting. Definitely appreciate all of you who continue to follow and participate each week though!

Disclaimer:  Unfortunately, while I’ve only had it happen once, I’m going to have to make a statement like other giveaways I’ve seen on blogs that I am not responsible for lost mail.

    The 14 books you are tossing are ones I’ve never heard of. I hope you do read Shutter–I still have that on my TBR, but it kind of scares me so I’d love to read your thoughts about it. Sorry you aren’t gaining followers through this weekly cleanup post–sharing your ARCs is such a generous thing to do.

      I love scary books, so I just need to get a hold of Shutter to read. Thanks for always participating every week though!

    • Lisa Mandina

      He used to be an auto-buy author for me, but not so much anymore. I did like the story that this one goes with though, so will still read at some point. Thanks for stopping by!

      The sad thing is that all of these books are just on my Goodreads TBR, I don’t actually own any of them. I have a whole different list for those. :-). I went through those when I moved. Mostly. I love the Little Free Library thing!

  2. Shannon Capelle

    Fury is one ive been wanting to read. Alot of them are great books and alot I havent heard of.

  3. Candice

    I have not heard of most of these books except for Company Town which I also took off my TBR because the story is not what I thought, the synopsis can be misleading. Thanks for having the giveaway.

    • Lisa Mandina

      Yeah, I think that’s what I heard about it and why I kind of decided to let it go. Thanks for stopping by!

    • Lisa Mandina

      I’ll probably keep doing the posts in some way, but may cut back the giveaways. I do get a lot done!
