TBR Lows & Highs | November 8, 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!

    1. Ahhh you’re so sweet to say that! I’ve picked up Anger is a Gift a couple times and just never seem to get into it. I really want to read it though (especially since I live in Oakland, where it takes place!) so I may try the audiobook version. And yes, I’m totally obsessed with that cover, too!!
