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!):
The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler
A coworker who lives for YA contemporary romance recently recommended this book to me. It’s not something I’d normally read but she raved about it so I’ll have to give it a try some time!
Sit by Deborah Ellis
A collection of short stories, each one about a child sitting in a chair and experiencing something different. This is such an interesting concept, and I’ve very curious to see how the author handled it.
Bookshop Girl by Chloe Coles
A teenage girl (named Paige Turner!!) tries to save a local indie bookshop. This book sounds so precious and I love the colorful cover.
Shug by Jenny Han
A middle grade novel by the wonderful Jenny Han about a girl dealing with insecurities and growing up.
First & Then by Emma Mills
I haven’t read anything by Emma Mills, but have had her books recommended to me a lot recently! The rainbow cover on this one is very enticing.
Here’s what I’ve added to my TBR recently:
The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart
Release date: January 8, 2019
A middle grade novel about a girl named Coyote who’s lived on the road in an old school bus with her dad ever since her mom & sisters died in a car crash.
The Great Unknowable End by Kathryn Ormsbee
Release date: February 19, 2019
Set in the 1970s, this YA novel deals with mental health, hippie communes, and (according to some reviews) has Stranger Things/Twilight Zone vibes, and has a STUNNING cover.
How Not to Ask a Boy to Prom by S. J. Goslee
Release date: April 23, 2019
Yes. Yes, this is, in fact, a queer fake dating book. I feel like this is the book I have been waiting for forever!
The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta
Release date: May 14, 2019
2019 is the official year of queer witches and I could not be happier about that. I also love that this one is about the California redwoods!
Going Off-Script by Jen Wilde
Release date: May 21, 2019
A diverse YA rom-com from Swoon Reads about TV and queerness. I haven’t read anything by Jen Wilde but I know I’ll love this one already!
