TBR Lows & Highs | October 18, 2018


TBR Highs & Lows is a meme hosted by Destiny at Howling Libraries (one of my favorite book blogs!), where bloggers feature the books at the bottom of their TBRs (the “lows”) and highlight new additions to the list (the “highs”). Visit Howling Libraries for more info if you’re interested in participating!

Here’s some of the books at the bottom of my TBR (but that I still want to read!):

I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo
Maurene Goo is hilarious, and The Way You Make Me Feel easily became one of my favorite summer reads, so I know I’ll enjoy this one too.

The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock
I’ve heard this one is lyrical, beautiful, heartbreaking, and intense, which are pretty much my favorite things in a book. The cover makes me feel like this will be a perfect winter read!

These Things I’ve Done  by Rebecca Phillips
Sad books = the best books. This one’s about a teen dealing with guilt over her BFF’s death.

The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani
This middle grade novel is set in 1947 during the partition of India and I’ve heard it’s amazing.

Learning to Breathe by Janice Lynn Mather
Learning to Breathe is about a teen trying to conceal her pregnancy after being assaulted. I know this’ll be an intense read but one that is so relevant.


Here’s what I’ve added to my TBR recently:

Dealing in Dreams by Lilliam Rivera
Release Date: March 5, 2019
Just like Lilliam Rivera’s The Education of Margot Sanchez, this one has a STUNNING cover and I already know I’ll love it.

Other Words For Home by Jasmine Warga
Release Date: May 7, 2019
A contemporary middle grade novel about a 12 year-old Syrian girl who moves to America. I enjoyed Jasmine Warga’s Here We Are Now and am excited to read an MG book from her!

I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn
Release Date: May 28, 2019
This YA contemporary romance set in Japan sounds way too cute and I’m honestly obsessed with the title.

Fan the Flame by Anna Priemaza
Release Date: August 20, 2019
I’m so here for more feminist YA. This one’s about a teen girl trying to expose her brother’s sexism to his YouTube fans.

My Fate According to the Butterfly by Gail D. Villanueva
Release Date: 2019 (no official date yet)
I’m so excited for another middle grade contemporary set in the Philippines! It doesn’t have an official release date yet but I already can’t wait.
