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!):
Anger is a Gift by Mark Osano
I’ve picked up this YA novel about police brutality (set in Oakland!) a few times but never seem to get to it. I’m hoping to finally read it eventually!

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman
A diverse YA novel with POC and queer characters about friendship and media.
